Marvel's latest movie, Avengers: Infinity War, continues to smash box office records. Last weekend, the film officially became the fastest ever to cross $1B mark in global box office sales. It reached $1B in a mere 11 days. The movie also scored the biggest opening weekend numbers of all-time with $250M in sales. Avengers: Infinity War, is the 19th super hero film released by the Marvel franchise.

Not everyone is celebrating though. Legendary filmmaker, James Cameron (Titanic, Avatar) made headlines for stating, "I'm hoping we'll start getting Avenger fatigue here pretty soon."
