"Avengers: Infinity War" is showing plenty of staying power in North America as it heads for the fourth-highest grossing third weekend of all time at $55 million to $60 million, early estimates showed on Friday.

Infinity War's global haul includes $546.8 million domestically and $1.059 billion overseas. That's enough to become the fifth-highest grossing movie of all time, passing by Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Black Panther, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Furious 7, and the former king of the superhero box office, the original Marvel's The Avengers.

Sans no competition from another tentpole, Avengers: Infinity War has topped the box office for three consecutive weekends, a veritable eternity in summer, when Hollywood tentpoles generally open one on top of another. 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.

One of his followers pointed out to him that he should have checked out the MCU starter pack before watching the movie.

The next stop for "Infinity War" in the coming weeks looks to be the $2 billion mark around the world.

In a distant second, "Life of the Party" earned an estimated $18.5 million, which is a few million short of some of McCarthy's other comedy collaborations with husband Ben Falcone like "Tammy" and "The Boss".

For the uninitiated, Avengers: Infinity War is the 19th film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe that started nearly 10 years ago with Robert Downey Jr-starrer Iron Man.

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. The film also enjoyed a solid weekend internationally where it brought in $2.8 million from 55 markets as it passed $100 million internationally with releases in China, France and Japan still to go. The film will expand to 350 theaters next weekend. And it didn't match the $19.5 million opening of Amy Schumer and Goldie Hawn's Snatched over Mother's Day weekend past year.

"This is a typical Mother's Day weekend with a big blockbuster in the mix and some counter programming thrown in for good measure as we await the arrival of "Deadpool 2" next week", said comScore senior media analyst Paul Dergarabedian. There is no word on whether it will also release in China after a minor delay or not.
