'Avengers: Infinity War' Posted a Historic Second-Weekend Box Office Total

Varun-dhawan-Hawkeye

At the weekend they won another record "Awakening forces" - on fees in the first weekend in the USA, collecting 250 million to $ 248. Internationally, the film earned an estimated $162.6 million this weekend, making for a current foreign total of $713.3 million.

The $112.5 million that Infinity War is expected to make this weekend represents a dropoff of 56 percent from its opening weekend. Though it quickly crossed into the billion-dollar territory after just 11 days, one thing still stands in its way when it comes to ultimate glory: Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

The Disney/Marvel film continued to vaporise its competition in its second week, becoming the fastest film ever to cross US$1 billion (S$1.33 billion) globally. That bests the 12 days it took Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Pantelion Films CEO Paul Presburger and Jonathan Glickman, president of the Motion Picture Group at MGM, both attribute the success to the star-power of Eugenio Derbez ("Instructions Not Included", "How to be a Latin Lover") who helped developed the bilingual remake with an American star (Anna Faris) to appeal not just to his Hispanic fan base but all audiences.

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

Dwayne Johnson's Rampage, from Warner Bros., a unit of Time Warner (NYSE:TWX) rounded out the Top 5 with $4.6-M to finish Sunday with a global box office of $377.9-M. Today we learned the answer to that question, which is no, with Avengers: Infinity War easily taking the top spot with $112.4 million. As for the second best second weekend ever?

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

The creative architects of "Infinity War" are two brothers from Cleveland.
