Avengers: Infinity War Continues To Break Many Box Office Milestones

"Star Wars: The Force Awakens holds the prize for biggest second weekend, with a mighty $149 million in 2015". 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 of now, Avengers: Infinity War's domestic total stands at $450.8 million, with $713.3 million from foreign territories for a global total of $1.164 billion. Aside from Infinity War's opening weekend, its drop from weekend to weekend has remained consistently around 30 percent.

What records is Avengers: Infinity War not going to break?

The film cruised past the cumulative total of numerous wildly successful predecessors in the Marvel cinematic universe, including Spider-Man: Homecoming, Thor: Ragnarok and Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2.

STX's Amy Schumer comedy I Feel Pretty placed #4 with $4.9-M for a soft tally of $37.8-M.

And "Tully", starring Charlize Theron, launched on 1,353 screens with $3.2 million.


Hollywood's summer movie season typically runs from the first weekend in May through Labor Day, but this year got a jump-start with the late April release of "Avengers: Infinity War". However, Solo, the upcoming Han Solo movie, is tracking for a $170 million+ opening weekend, which could set a new box office records itself.

The more important question is whether A Quiet Place will quietly sneak its way to $200 million.

"Rampage", $4.6 million ($13.7 million international).

Black Panther added $3.14 million (GBP2.3 million) to its 12-week haul at seven and is now just $7 million (GBP5 million) from hitting $700 million at the North American box office.

"Super Troopers 2", $1.8 million ($90,000 international).
