'Avengers: Infinity War' scores second best weekend 2 ever

07 May 2018

"Avengers: Infinity War" put another album that weekend, even destroying the box office contest and drumming up $1 billion more rapidly than every other film onto those novels.

"Disney and Marvel's latest collaboration earned $112.5 million from 4,474 locations in its second frame", reported Rebecca Rubin of Variety. The Force Awakens, which earned $149.2 million in its second weekend, still holds the record for the biggest second weekend in North America.

"Infinity War" only barely edged out Disney's "Star Wars: The power Awakens", which spanned the milestone in 12 days. The $1.164 billion total for Infinity War saw it comfortably into 15th place, ahead of Civil War ($1.1 billion), but still behind Iron Man 3 ($1.2 billion), Black Panther ($1.3 billion), Age of Ultron ($1.4 billion), The Avengers ($1.5 billion).

"This was not the strongest weekend ever regarding the official kick-off of the summer season, but we could be looking at a record May ultimately", Dergarabedian said, noting upcoming releases like "Deadpool 2" (May 18) and "Solo: A Star Wars Story" (May 25). The movie opens in China-the second-biggest movie market on the planet-on May 11, so box office results only stand to improve further still.

Haspel's confirmation is expected to be tenuous, with many Democrats voicing their opposition to her. Sanders, meanwhile, tweeted an endorsement of Haspel on Friday.

There was little new competition this weekend, but a few alternative options including the "Overboard" remake, which scored the highest-grossing opening weekend for Pantelion Films with $14.8 million from 1,623 theaters.

Charlize Theron's new movie Tully, in which she plays a desperate new mum, debuts at six with $3.2 million (GBP2.3 million).
