Avengers: Infinity War dominated the global box office this weekend, earning another $349 million worldwide and bringing its global total to $1.607 billion. That makes it the second-fastest title ever to cross the $500 million mark domestically. It turns out the Infinity War directors are big fans of the game and, after contacting Epic, they managed to get Thanos dropped into the 100-player mode as a special event.

The movie now sits at a 27 percent on Rotten Tomatoes. 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.
