Disney and Marvel Studios’ “Avengers: Infinity War” once again topped the box-office, pulling in $112.5 million domestically in its second weekend – the second-biggest sophomore outing in history (behind only “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”).
Its second weekend drop off was 56% – respectable and mid-range for an MCU film with the likes of “Black Panther” falling 45% while “Captain America: Civil War” dropped 60%. The “Overboard” remake came in second with $14.8 million, while the Charlize Theron-led “Tully” was seventh with $3.2 million.
Overseas “Avengers” pulled in a further $162.6 million this weekend which brings its total to $1.164 billion worldwide with $713.3 million of that coming from overseas. The film reached the $1 billion mark in its 11th day in release – besting previous record holder ‘Force Awakens’ by a day.
