The success of "Infinity War" in China is a reminder of the importance of the world's fastest-growing market to Hollywood. It opened in its final foreign market with $200 million.

Monster Hunt 2 earned the box-office record for an opening weekend in February, when it rang up US$185 million. The comedy stars McCarthy as Deanna Miles, who, shortly after her dropping her daughter Maddie (Molly Gordon) off at college, learns that her husband (Matt Walsh) is leaving her for another woman (Julie Bowen). The performance comes in on the lower end of industry expectations as the PG-13 comedy became Melissa McCarthy's smallest opening as a film's lead behind Tammy's $21.57 million opening back in July 2014.

As of Wednesday, Infinity War has grossed $1.251 billion, with $479 million made in the USA and $772 million in worldwide markets. The thriller starring Gabrielle Union was only made for around $6 million, but it took in $16.5 million. That's a solid start for a film that cost a modest $6 million to make. Breaking In features Union as single mother Shaun Russell, who takes her two children (Seth Carr and Ajiona Alexus) to her family's Malibu estate after her father's death. Additional releases include Paramount's Book Club into ~2,500 theaters; Global Road's animated release Show Dogs into approximately 3,000 theaters; and Focus will debut their documentary Pope Francis - A Man of His Word into ~350 theaters.

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.
