Avengers: Infinity War Dominates with Another $275.1M Worldwide

A 43-year-old man died while watching Avengers: Infinity War in Andhra Pradesh's Kadapa district on Tuesday reported Times of India.

It's a 56 percent drop from its first weekend in theaters - less steep than the second weekend fall of "Avengers: Age of Ultron" (59.4 percent) or "Captain America: Civil War" (59.5 percent), but more than "Black Panther's" uniquely soft 44.7 percent sophomore weekend decline.

INFINITY WAR is going to get a lot of credit for having the second highest second weekend box office total ever (behind STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS), but honestly, my attention is drawn toward the $13 million opening at the weekend box office of OVERBOARD.

It took Avengers: Infinity War just 11 days to top $1 billion at the global box offices.

The movie won the domestic weekend box office for a second-straight weekend and now has a domestic total of $450.8 million.

Although critics were not especially won over by "Overboard", audiences gave the film a more favorable A- CinemaScore.

In fourth place was STX's I Feel Pretty with an estimated $4.9 million from 3,232 theaters. Final domestic figures will be released Monday. 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). Since the film earned almost $70 million on Friday alone, the studio is confident it will pass the billion-dollar mark on Saturday, in 11 days.

Avengers: Infinity War, which released on April 27, went past the United States dollars one billion mark on Saturday, reports Variety. Today we learned the answer to that question, which is no, with Avengers: Infinity War easily taking the top spot with $112.4 million.
