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

'Avengers: Infinity War' romps to $1 billion at the box office, faster than any other movie

Weekend Box Office – 'Avengers: Infinity War' Hits $1 Billion Worldwide In Fastest Time Ever

"Avengers: Infinity War" is poised to set a record for fastest film to rake in $1 billion in business.

"Disney and Marvel's latest collaboration earned $112.5 million from 4,474 locations in its second frame", reported Rebecca Rubin of Variety.

While, yes, Infinity War enjoyed an incredible debut, its second-weekend numbers fell more than $30 million short of The Force Awakens' hold.

Actors Sebastian Stan, Dave Bautista, Karen Gillan, Pom Klementieff, Benedict Cumberbatch, Chadwick Boseman, Josh Brolin, and Chris Hemsworth, producer Kevin Feige, and actors Robert Downey Jr., Mark Ruffalo, Tom Holland, Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Bettany, Don Cheadle, and Anthony Mackie of AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR took part today in the Walt Disney Studios live action presentation at Disney's D23 EXPO 2017 in Anaheim, Calif. AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR will be released in USA theaters on May 4, 2018.

With little to no competition until Deadpool 2's May 18th release, expect Avengers: Infinity War to continue to dominate at the box office in the coming weeks as the film approaches $500 million domestically.

"Infinity War" is set to be just the fifth movie ever to earn more than $100 million in its second weekend at USA theaters. If Marvel is ever going to lose to anyone it definitely makes sense it would be a Star Wars film. Only three movies have achieved that number before: the aforementioned box office juggernaut, Avatar, Titanic, and Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

The remake of Overboard starring Anna Faris actually did much better than most experts would have anticipated.


Slipping to No. 3 in its fifth weekend is Paramount Picture's "A Quiet Place".

The superhero film has brought in 450.8 million dollars in North America. Whether it has what it takes to pass Black Panther near $700 million domestic haul remains to be seen.

Rounding out the top five is Dwayne Johnson's "Rampage".

"Black Panther" likely saw another boost from "Infinity War".

Avengers Age of Ultron had a foreign box office that was double its domestic box office.

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).
