Avengers: Infinity War Dominates with Another $275.1M Worldwide

07 May 2018

Infinity War becomes the 34th movie to cross $1 billion at the global box office, not accounting for inflation.

It's a 56 percent drop from its first weekend in theaters - less steep than the second weekend fall of "Avengers: Age of Ultron" (59.4 percent) or "Captain America: Civil War" (59.5 percent), but more than "Black Panther's" uniquely soft 44.7 percent sophomore weekend decline.

The film also features Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Chadwick Boseman and Tom Holland.

Avengers: Infinity War, which released on April 27, went past the Dollars one billion mark on Saturday, reports Variety. The film should have an easy path to the number two spot at the weekend box office, but it probably won't have a prayer of beating out AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR.
