Fortnite Buffs Thanos' damage, The Avengers: Infinity Mode balance

Share

Now in Fortnite, you can play a limited time mode themed around Avengers: Infinity War, where a gauntlet falls onto a battle royale map, bestowing its owner with the ability to play as the giant purple destroyer Thanos. But if you thought that the memes stopped there then you were wrong, because an even better meme came out recently and you can only understand it if you've seen the movie.

After becoming the quickest movie ever to $1 billion worldwide last weekend and having the second-largest second weekend ever in U.S. theaters, "Infinity War" won this weekend's box office for a third-straight weekend and has crossed the half-billion figure domestically. On Saturday, it became the second-fastest film to cross the $500 million mark at the domestic box office.

Avengers: Infinity War dominated the global box office this weekend, earning another $349 million worldwide and bringing its global total to $1.607 billion. At this time Infinity War ranks as the eighth largest domestic release ever and it will be interesting to see how the film holds up next weekend once Deadpool 2 debuts.

Infinity War hit the half billion mark in just 15 days.
