"Avengers: Infinity War" set another record this weekend, destroying the box office competition and drumming up $1 billion faster than any other film on the books.
Walt Disney estimated that the superhero sequel's global haul will stand at $1.16 billion through this weekend, even though it has yet to open in the all-important Chinese market. The film crossed the billion-dollar threshold on Saturday, just 11 days after its release.
"Infinity War" just barely edged out Disney's "Star Wars: The Force Awakens," which crossed the milestone in 12 days. The third Avengers film also topped "The Force Awakens" to post the best-ever U.S. opening last weekend.
