May 13 Hollywood superhero mashup movie "Avengers: Infinity War" is receiving a thunderous response in India giving tough competition to Indian films at the box office. However, if you are one of those who sat through Avengers: Infinity War without watching the previous films in the franchise and was not able to wrap your head around what exactly was happening, do not think you are the only one.

From Big B's post, it appears, that he hasn't seen the other movies from the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) and it is therefore, he found it hard to make any sense out of Avengers: Infinity War.
Additionally, Breaking In opened in five worldwide markets this weekend with an estimated $1 million, including a fifth place finish in the United Kingdom with an estimated $609k. Neither film had much support from critics (Life of the Party registers 41% at Rotten Tomatoes and Breaking In's at 27%), but according to Cinemascore audiences were not as critical of the female-led newcomers.
Universal's thriller "Breaking In" came in third with $16.5 million. The movie's domestic total through Sunday is $29.6 million.
