'Avengers: Infinity War' Scores Second-Biggest Second Weekend Ever

'Avengers: Infinity War' Scores Second-Biggest Second Weekend Ever

Infinity War becomes the 34th movie to cross $1-B at the global box office.

Disney and Marvel's latest collaboration earned $112.5 million from 4,474 locations in its second frame. That film, of course, had the benefit of the Christmas holiday, which helped push it towards a record breaking $149.2 million second weekend.

Domestically, the film took in another US$112 million - the second biggest second weekend ever, behind Star Wars: The Force Awakens - and has now made US$450 million in the United States and Canada.

Following its record-setting opening one week ago, Disney/Marvel's Avengers: Infinity War marched its way to another great round at multiplexes worldwide this weekend.

For further context, Infinity War is only the fifth film to rake in $100 million during its second weekend.

Overseas, the mega-superhero mashup grossed another $162.6 million for a foreign total of $713.3 million and $1.164 billion worldwide. As for the second best second weekend ever? The third Avengers film also topped "The Force Awakens" to post the best-ever US opening last weekend. Directed by Rob Greenberg and stars Eugenio Derbez and Anna Faris, the plot tells the story of a spoiled playboy from Mexico's richest family and a working class single mom of three hired to clean his luxury yacht. The Pantelion release scored a waterlogged 30% from critics on Rotten Tomatoes and a 45/100 on Metacritic. In four weeks, its domestic total is $84.7 million.

The comic book film unites the Avengers, the "Guardians of the Galaxy" and several different properties, including "Black Panther" and "Spider-Man" into one blockbuster.

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

Rounding out the top five was Warner/New Line's Rampage with an estimated $4.6 million from 3,151 screens. Both Tully and Bad Samaritan had rather small opening weekends, but they still did well enough to make it into the top 10. Infinity War will retain the top spot at the domestic box office this week and shows no signs of letting up anytime soon. The horror thriller features Robert Sheehan as a burglar who disturbs a kidnapping and faces the wrath of the kidnapper, played by David Tennant.
