'Infinity War' to set record, fastest to surpass $1 billion

MARVELAvengers 4 LEAK Does THIS prove Ant Man will TIME TRAVEL back to Civil War

"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 hit $400 million faster and landed a bigger second weekend, with a $149.2 million (GBP110 million) take.

In its second weekend in theaters, "Avengers: Infinity War" continues to dominate in North America.

Infinity War is now the 34th movie ever to pass $1 billion, joining the likes of Avatar, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Frozen, Skyfall, and Minions. 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 movie opens in China-the second-biggest movie market on the planet-on May 11, so box office results only stand to improve further still. Internationally, it grossed $162.6 million - including a $17.6 million opening in Russian Federation - taking its overseas total to $713.3 million. The Avengers ($1.52 billion) now holds the record for the biggest global total for a superhero film.
