'Avengers: Infinity War' Posted a Historic Second-Weekend Box Office Total

By the close of Saturday, Infinity War became the fastest movie to $1 billion at the worldwide box office.

Disney and Marvel's latest collaboration earned $112.5 million from 4,474 locations in its second frame. "The 56% decline was just enough to top the record previously held by fellow Marvel title Black Panther, which made $111.6 million in its second weekend". That bests the 12 days it took Star Wars: The Force Awakens. A big showing in China could help propel Avengers: Infinity War towards the $2 billion mark, a feat only three movies in history have ever passed, Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($2.068 billion), Titanic ($2.187 billion) and Avatar ($2.788 billion).

As it stands, Infinity War is crushing it at the box office and earning mostly positive reviews, which may have turned out differently had they tried to use some of the characters from the Marvel TV series.

Directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, "Avengers: Infinity War" tells the story of the Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy who attempt to stop Thanos, one of the most powerful, insane and evil of all villains in the Marvel universe, from collecting the Infinity Stones. The decrease was lower than the 59% encountered by Age of Ultronin its second weekend but a bit steeper than the 50% experienced by The Avengers. In four weeks, its domestic total is $84.7 million.

One of three weekend releases opening in "Infinity War's" almighty wake is "Overboard", anchoring in the second spot with a solid $14 million in 1,623 theaters.

The remake of Overboard starring Anna Faris actually did much better than most experts would have anticipated.




"Overboard" is now averaging a bleak 30 percent on Rotten Tomatoes.

The third weekend of Amy Schumer's "I Feel Pretty" secured the fourth slot with $4.9 million from 3,232 theaters.

Rounding out the top five was Warner/New Line's Rampage with an estimated $4.6 million from 3,151 screens.

"Black Panther" likely saw another boost from "Infinity War".

The top 10 is rounded out by Tully ($3.18 million), Black Panther ($3.14 million), Truth or Dare ($1.88 million), Super Troopers 2 ($1.81 million) and Bad Samaritan ($3.9 million).

Thanks primarily to "Infinity War", the year to date box office is up 5.2 percent, according to comScore. The horror thriller features Robert Sheehan as a burglar who disturbs a kidnapping and faces the wrath of the kidnapper, played by David Tennant.
