Marvel Studios' "Avengers: Infinity War," after breaking pretty much every box office record that existed last weekend, continued its unprecedented run in its second weekend. Not even Thanos himself could slow this movie down.
For its second weekend, the superhero team-up movie raked in another $112.5 domestically, making it the second highest second-weekend of all time (after "Star Wars: The Force Awakens") and propelling it past the $1 billion mark internationally faster than any movie ever. (It crossed that threshold in a mere 11 days, one day quicker than "Star Wars: The Force Awakens.") And, even more incredibly, "Avengers: Infinity War" hasn't even opened in China yet.
At #2 was MGM and Lionsgate's remake of stone cold classic "Overboard," which brought in $14.2 million. At #3 was Paramount's horror juggernaut "A Quiet Place," which made $7.6 million, with Amy Schumer's "I Feel Pretty" coming in at #4 with $4.9 million (it's made only $37.8 million total). Dwayne Johnson's videogame adaptation "Rampage" rounded out the top 5 with $4.6 million. While it hasn't done that well domestically, the movie has made $293.1 million overseas, so it will probably end up turning a profit despite its perceived stateside shortcomings.
The back half of the top 10 was mostly full of holdovers. While Jason Reitman's wonderful Charlize Theron-led dramatic comedy "Tully" clocked in at #6 with $3.2 million, and the David Tennant thriller "Bad Samaritan" squeaked into the #10 spot with $1.8 million, everything else had been a mainstay of the box office chart, with the most notable example being "Black Panther's" #7 spot – and this is as the movie hits home video this week. Truly incredible.
It'll be interesting to see what happens after this next weekend (the last before "https://www.moviefone.com/movie/deadpool-2/20083188/main/Deadpool 2" crashes the party), and which superhero will be left standing at the top of the box office chart.
Iron Man, Thor, the Hulk and the rest of the Avengers unite to battle their most powerful enemy yet -- the evil Thanos. On a mission to collect all six Infinity Stones, Thanos plans to use the artifacts to inflict his twisted will on reality. The fate of the planet and existence itself has never been more uncertain as everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment. Read More
