Russo's Talk Infinity War & Black Order

Russo's Talk Infinity War & Black Order

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.

"Disney and Marvel's latest collaboration earned $112.5 million from 4,474 locations in its second frame", reported Rebecca Rubin of Variety. The second-highest North American grosser, new rom-com "Overboard", trailed in its distant wake at just $14.8 million. The only real question that remained was could Avengers: Infinity War pull off a big enough second frame to break the second weekend record of $149.2 million set by Star Wars: The Force Awakens in 2015?

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.

Avengers: Infinity War is in theaters now.

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.

STX Films' comedy "I Feel Pretty", starring Amy Schumer as a self-conscious woman who suffers a head injury and then sees herself as ravishingly attractive, was fourth at $4.9 million.

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

Should its current pace at the box office, with the added help from China, continue, it would be safe to assume that Infinity War could cross the $2 billion mark by the end of its run at theaters. As for the second best second weekend ever?

"Black Panther", $3.1 million ($390,000 international). It is the biggest opening to date for Lionsgate's Pantelion Films, which took advantage of the Cinco de Mayo holiday in plugging the movie, which earned an A- CinemaScore from audiences, Hispanics made up 42% of ticket buyers.
