'Avengers: Infinity War' scores second best weekend

Courtesy

I've seen The Avengers: Infinity War two times, and I really don't have too much to complain about. The Avengers ($1.52 billion) now holds the record for the biggest global total for a superhero film. 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.

The success of Avengers: Infinity War has now pushed the MCU beyond the $16 billion mark combined - and with Infinity War still raking in the cash and Ant-Man and the Wasp still to come this summer, it's possible that the MCU will end the year with $17 billion plus in box office takings.

It managed to be the fastest film to reach over $1 billion in a record setting 11 days beating the 12 days it took The Force Awakens to reach that milestone.

In just 11 days of release, the film has already made more than the overall totals of other comic book hits like "Wonder Woman", "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice", "Guardians of the Galaxy", "X-Men: Days of Future Past" and "Justice League".

Both Australia and the U.S. are concerned about freedom of navigation across important trade shipping routes. Philip Davidson said last month that China's forward operating bases appear to already be complete.

There was little new competition this weekend, but a few alternative options including the "Overboard" remake, which scored the highest-grossing opening weekend for Pantelion Films with $14.8 million from 1,623 theaters.

A Quiet Place lands at three on the new box office countdown, while Amy Schumer's comedy I Feel Pretty is at four, and Dwayne Johnson's latest action movie Rampage rounds out the new top five. As for the second best second weekend ever?

The top 10 is rounded out by Tully ($3.18 million), Black Panther ($3.14 million), Truth or Dare ($1.88 million), Super Troopers 2 ($1.81 million) and Bad Samaritan ($3.9 million).

"Avengers: Infinity War", $162.6 million.
