What records is Avengers: Infinity War not going to break?

The superhero mashup movie Avengers: Infinity War has minted over United States dollars one billion worldwide, setting the record for the fastest film to reach the milestone.

There was little new competition this weekend in the blockbuster space, although there were a handful of other options, like "Overboard", which came in a very distant second to "Avengers", but still made a notable splash for a film its size. The new "Overboard" was directed by Rob Greenberg, the film stars Anna Faris, Eugenio Derbez, and John Hannah.
