'Avengers: Infinity War, ' with an army of stars including Robert Downey Jr.
The film grossed over a billion dollars faster than any other movie in history, and it's only in its second weekend in theaters.
In total, Infinity War has now made $1.16 billion worldwide to date, according to GameSpot sister site CNET. It just remains to be seen where Infinity War ends its run, and how many records it can break on the way there.
The film cruised past the cumulative total of numerous wildly successful predecessors in the Marvel cinematic universe, including Spider-Man: Homecoming, Thor: Ragnarok and Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2.
The film's continued success reinforces the dominance of both Disney and Marvel studios in Hollywood. The film stars Anna Faris and Eugenio Derbez as unlikely lovers, and was produced by MGM and Pantelion Films, a Lionsgate-backed production company aimed at Latino audiences.More news: China secretly installs cruise missiles on South China Sea outposts

Dwayne Johnson's Rampage, from Warner Bros., a unit of Time Warner (NYSE:TWX) rounded out the Top 5 with $4.6-M to finish Sunday with a global box office of $377.9-M. However, Solo, the upcoming Han Solo movie, is tracking for a $170 million+ opening weekend, which could set a new box office records itself.
This overtakes Black Panther impressive second weekend total of $111 million. Looking ahead to next weekend, only two movies will arrive in wide release, with Universal's thriller Breaking In, starring Gabrielle Union, and New Line Cinema's Life of the Party, starring Melissa McCarthy.
"Super Troopers 2", $1.8 million ($90,000 international).
