Weekend box office: Avengers: Infinity War remains strong, but not as strong as The Force Awakens in its second weekend


Thanos’ reign continues as Avengers: Infinity War crosses one billion dollars worldwide, but its second weekend couldn’t top Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

In such an unsurprising way that it’s almost not even fun anymore, Avengers: Infinity War continues to rake in big bucks at the box office for both Marvel, and of course, Disney. Though it quickly crossed into the billion-dollar territory after just 11 days, one thing still stands in its way when it comes to ultimate glory: Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

While, yes, Infinity War enjoyed an incredible debut, its second-weekend numbers fell more than $30 million short of The Force Awakens‘ hold. If Infinity War makes all its money upfront quick and fast, perhaps the film won’t be able to dethrone Star Wars‘ monumental all-time domestic haul of $936.6 million. Currently, the film is only about halfway there.

Worldwide, Infinity War still sits at No. 15, but it will most likely reach Black Panther heights by week’s end. It’s obviously doing well, but not strong. This likely isn’t the movie to take out Avatar or anything like that. In fact, the conversation’s already dying down as Marvel’s next door neighbor gears up for Solo: A Star Wars Story.

So, here are the top 10 films at the box office this weekend. Grosses are listed as this weekend’s total followed by their overall domestic total:

"1. Avengers: Infinity War $112,474,000 / $450,806,5402. Overboard (2018) $14,750,000 / $14,750,0003. A Quiet Place $7,600,000 / $159,894,3864. I Feel Pretty $4,900,000 / $37,798,2835. Rampage (2018) $4,620,000 / $84,793,1006. Tully (2018) $3,186,000 / $3,186,0007. Black Panther $3,146,000 / $693,126,6158. Truth or Dare $1,885,000 / $38,236,3609. Super Troopers 2 $1,815,000 / $25,445,70110. Bad Samaritan $1,758,000 / $1,758,000"

In the land where superheroes don’t roam, Overboard made its decent debut at No. 2. Opening in a similar amount of theaters, meanwhile, Tully only managed to hit No. 7, which isn’t as bad as Young Adult but only proves that Charlize Theron, sadly, isn’t a box office draw.

The more important question is whether A Quiet Place will quietly sneak its way to $200 million. Aside from Infinity War‘s opening weekend, its drop from weekend to weekend has remained consistently around 30 percent.

Likewise, does Rampage have a chance of hitting $100 million? Ready Player One was completely booted out of the top 10 but has been nominated for some MTV Movie Awards this year.
