Globally, "Avengers" has hit the $1 billion mark in just 11 days - the fastest ever - and it has yet to open in China.

"Disney and Marvel's latest collaboration earned $112.5 million from 4,474 locations in its second frame", reported Rebecca Rubin of Variety. The Force Awakens, which earned $149.2 million in its second weekend, still holds the record for the biggest second weekend in North America.

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.

There would be no denying that "Infinity War" was going to be huge, but this is insane.


The first of a two-part installment from the Marvel Entertainment franchise, "Infinity War" garnered $112.5 million from theaters in the USA and Canada, ComScore Inc. estimated in an email Sunday. Infinity War managed to slighly edge out fellow Marvel film Black Panther's $111.6 million second weekend. Anna Faris and Eugenio Derbez star in the Lionsgate remake of a 1987 movie about a struggling single mother who persuades a rich playboy with amnesia that they are married. The Pantelion release scored a waterlogged 30% from critics on Rotten Tomatoes and a 45/100 on Metacritic.

Hanging tough in third place was Paramount's A Quiet Place with an estimated $7.6 million from 3,413 screens.

STX's Amy Schumer comedy I Feel Pretty placed #4 with $4.9-M for a soft tally of $37.8-M. Its North American tally now sits at $37.8 million. "Rampage" rounded out the top five with $4.6 million, bumping its domestic total to $84.8 million. In four weeks, its domestic total is $84.7 million. Only $900k separates two Marvel films from the title.

Focus Features' "Tully", with Charlize Theron, Mackenzie Davis, Mark Duplass, and Ron Livingston, debuted with $3 million in 1,353 theaters. Both Tully and Bad Samaritan had rather small opening weekends, but they still did well enough to make it into the top 10. The first Avengers fell 50 percent, while Avengers: Age of Ultron fell 59 percent and Captain America: Civil War, declined 60 percent. Dean Delvin's thriller starring David Tennant, Robert Sheehan, and Kerry Condon has a B- CinemaScore, along with a 56 per cent critical rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
