'Avengers: Infinity War' continues to dominate, scoring second best weekend 2 ever

Marvel and Disney are determined to make 2018 the year of breaking every box office record in movie history, and "Avengers: Infinity War" is the one now driving the charge.

Internationally, Infinity War amassed another $162.6 million, thanks in part to a record breaking $17.6 million opening in Russian Federation, bringing the film's worldwide total to $713.3 million - with China still to come later this month. After posting the biggest-ever opening weekend, the movie has now crossed $1 billion globally. Infinity War managed to slighly edge out fellow Marvel film Black Panther's $111.6 million second weekend.

Infinity War has already surpassed the global totals of The Dark Knight ($1 billion), The Dark Knight Rises ($1.09 billion), and Captain America: Civil War ($1.15 billion). Since then, the film has gone on to put up some astounding numbers.

"Avengers: Infinity War" is poised to set a record for fastest film to rake in $1 billion in business. Internationally, it grossed $162.6 million - including a $17.6 million opening in Russian Federation - taking its overseas total to $713.3 million.

Rounding out the top five films domestically this weekend included Overboard ($14.8 million), A Quiet Place ($7.6 million), I Feel Pretty ($4.9 million), and Rampage ($4.6 million).

"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 top 10 is rounded out by Tully ($3.18 million), Black Panther ($3.14 million), Truth or Dare ($1.88 million), Super Troopers 2 ($1.81 million) and Bad Samaritan ($3.9 million).

While the three newcomers going up against Avengers: Infinity War weren't expected to provide any sort of meaningful competition, one did fare far better than expected.
