Thanos Wipes Out Box Office Competition as Avengers Dominates Week 2

Sanjay-DuttThanus

The Walt Disney Co. said Sunday that "Avengers: Infinity War" will gross an estimated $112.5 million from North American theaters over the weekend, becoming the second highest grossing film in weekend two behind "Star Wars: The Force Awakens'" $149.2 million and just slightly ahead of "Black Panther" ($111.7 million). Internationally, the film earned an estimated $162.6 million this weekend, making for a current foreign total of $713.3 million. If Infinity War makes all its money upfront quick and fast, perhaps the film won't be able to dethrone Star Wars' monumental all-time domestic haul of $936.6 million.

It's a 56 percent drop from its first weekend in theaters - less steep than the second weekend fall of "Avengers: Age of Ultron" (59.4 percent) or "Captain America: Civil War" (59.5 percent), but more than "Black Panther's" uniquely soft 44.7 percent sophomore weekend decline. 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). The Avengers and their Super Hero allies must be willing to sacrifice all in an attempt to defeat the powerful Thanos before his blitz of devastation and ruin puts an end to the universe.

The Marvel flick opened in Russian Federation this weekend, where it scored a record $17.6 million.

Down 40% in its third week, the Amy Schumer comedy has earned $37.8 million so far. "Rampage" rounded out the top five with $4.6 million, bumping its domestic total to $84.8 million. Down 36%, the latest Dwayne Johnson hit has amassed $85 million domestically and an additional $293 million from global markets. Infinity War becomes the 34th movie to cross $1-B at the global box office.
