When it comes to Twitter, Amitabh Bachchan is very active.

Rom-com "Overboard" slipped from second to fourth place with a box office take of $10.1 million its second weekend in theaters.

If you're a fan or have any interest regarding superhero movies then you've probably made the time to watch Avengers: Infinity War on the big screen.

So how much does Avengers: Infinity War need to earn to not just break even but to make a profit? and is that even in the cards? Marvel and Disney have high hopes for the movie's prospects in China, considering Avengers: Age to Ultron's sizable earnings there of $240.1 million.

Infinity War opened Friday in China, its final foreign market. The thriller starring Gabrielle Union was only made for around $6 million, but it took in $16.5 million.

Number five at the box office was Paramount's sci-fi horror film "A Quiet Place", which stars actor-director John Krasinski and his real-life wife Emily Blunt as a couple silently struggling to protect their family from blind aliens that track their prey by sound. We were anticipating a little more out of this title, but it still managed to outperform the studio's expectations and almost triple its reported $6 million budget in its first three days of release. The World mode of Fortnite doesn't get any big updates like the Battle Royal one but Epic in this update introduced a new weapon in World mode which is called as the Hacksaw has been added, which Epic says is "best used when stationary, aiming down the sights and firing in short bursts". And it didn't match the $19.5 million opening of Amy Schumer and Goldie Hawn's Snatched over Mother's Day weekend previous year.

Pantelion Films CEO Paul Presburger and Jonathan Glickman, president of the Motion Picture Group at MGM, both attribute the success to the star-power of Eugenio Derbez ("Instructions Not Included", "How to be a Latin Lover") who helped developed the bilingual remake with an American star (Anna Faris) to appeal not just to his Hispanic fan base but all audiences.

Next weekend will see the release of Fox's Deadpool 2 into a massive 4,250 locations, which will make it the widest R-rated release ever, surpassing the 4,103 locations It opened in last September. Yes, you read that right!
