Despite a cliffhanger ending, word of mouth still seems to be very positive for Infinity War. The lion's share belongs to "Black Panther", which returned to the top five this weekend with $4.5 million, bringing its domestic total to $688 million. Adding that to the $282.7 million in ticket sales internationally puts the film at $640.9 million in its first few days alone-well over halfway to a billion dollars.
