Infinity War broke the $1 billion barrier at the worldwide box office Saturday, becoming the fastest film ever to do so, and along the way it has passed fellow superhero hits like Thor: Ragnarok ($854 million), 2002's Spider-Man ($822 million), and Wonder Woman ($822 million). Today we learned the answer to that question, which is no, with Avengers: Infinity War easily taking the top spot with $112.4 million. It's a remake of an 80's comedy led by a B-level actress with no other big draws in the cast, opening against the second weekend of the biggest movie of all time. As for the second best second weekend ever?
Even with that drop in mind, it's worth noting that the film hasn't even opened in China, where it potentially stands to earn even more.
The film also features Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Chadwick Boseman and Tom Holland. With a domestic total of $450.8 million, Infinity War is also the second-fastest release to cross the $400 million mark, also behind only The Force Awakens.

Third place went to "A Quiet Place", which has grossed $159.9 million in five weeks in theaters, and fourth place to "I Feel Pretty", now up to $37.8 million in weekend three.
