'Avengers: Infinity War' becomes fastest film to earn $1 billion globally

'Avengers: Infinity War' becomes fastest film to earn $1 billion globally

"Disney and Marvel's latest collaboration earned $112.5 million from 4,474 locations in its second frame", reported Rebecca Rubin of Variety. At the weekend they won another record "Awakening forces" - on fees in the first weekend in the U.S., collecting 250 million to $ 248.

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. The $1.164 billion total for Infinity War saw it comfortably into 15th place, ahead of Civil War ($1.1 billion), but still behind Iron Man 3 ($1.2 billion), Black Panther ($1.3 billion), Age of Ultron ($1.4 billion), The Avengers ($1.5 billion).

Recall that this is not the first record in "the Avengers".

Day-1 Box Office: Avengers- Infinity War breaks Bollywood records
Disney updated its opening-weekend forecast to US$240 million, compared with independent forecasts of about US$230 million. The opening day collections of $105 million are second only to Star Wars: The Force Awakens' $116 million haul in 2015.

I've seen The Avengers: Infinity War two times, and I really don't have too much to complain about. We projected that, if Avengers: Infinity War dropped 40%, it would end up eclipsing the second weekend record, with our projections for the second weekend coming in at $154.5 million, but its second weekend drop was much more significant than expected, dropping 56.4%. The film opens in China, the second biggest movie market in the world, on May 11. Internationally, the film earned an estimated $162.6 million this weekend, making for a current foreign total of $713.3 million. The Avengers ($1.52 billion) now holds the record for the biggest global total for a superhero film.

STX's Amy Schumer comedy I Feel Pretty placed #4 with $4.9-M for a soft tally of $37.8-M. Opening in a similar amount of theaters, meanwhile, Tully only managed to hit No. 7, which isn't as bad as Young Adult but only proves that Charlize Theron, sadly, isn't a box office draw.
