Disney and Marvel's Avengers: Infinity War had a wonderful Mother's Day weekend.

Disney/Marvel Studios' plan to bump up the release of "Avengers: Infinity War" (or was it Robert Downey Jr.'s idea?) a weekend earlier than originally planned has worked out perfectly. On Saturday, it became the second-fastest film to cross the $500 million mark at the domestic box office.

Melissa McCarthy's "Life of the Party" bowed with $2.9 million in eight territories overseas.

This may seem like a silly question to ask of a film like Avengers: Infinity War, but looking at the numbers and figures it may be hard for the film to turn a profit while in theaters.

Amitabh Bachchan, who finally took out time to watch Hollywood superhero flick Avengers: Infinity War, says that he did not understand anything in the film.

But in a respectable third place was Universal's "Breaking In". It's opening in China is again expected to break records and could push the film to over 1.6 billion by the end of the weekend. "Sir you have to watch previous parts of the movie to understand this one, once you'll understand you'll never exhausted of praising this movie". Neither film had much support from critics (Life of the Party registers 41% at Rotten Tomatoes and Breaking In's at 27%), but according to Cinemascore audiences were not as critical of the female-led newcomers. It had the biggest opening in Australia, where it earned $1.5 million on 297 screens. Meanwhile, Gabrielle Union's "Breaking In" launched in third with $16.5 million in 2,537 locations.

One of the best holdovers in the top ten lands in fifth position with Paramount's A Quiet Place delivering an estimated $6.4 million, dropping just 18% in its sixth weekend in release, finishing the weekend with a domestic cume totaling $169.5 million.

Among holdovers, MGM and Pantelion Films' remake Overboard placed No. 4 in its second outing with $10.1 million after declining a narrow 31 percent.
