'Avengers' muscles rivals aside to continue box office dominance

Share

Infinity War will remain the number one film next weekend with a gross around the $60 million mark.

Force Awakens is the record holder for biggest second weekend ($149.2 million) in North America, while Infinity War nudged aside Black Panther ($111.7 million). A big showing in China could help propel Avengers: Infinity War towards the $2 billion mark, a feat only three movies in history have ever passed, Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($2.068 billion), Titanic ($2.187 billion) and Avatar ($2.788 billion).

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.

If Marvel is ever going to lose to anyone it definitely makes sense it would be a Star Wars film. The next Avengers film also topped "The power Awakens" into post the bestever US opening last weekend. Directed by Rob Greenberg and stars Eugenio Derbez and Anna Faris, the plot tells the story of a spoiled playboy from Mexico's richest family and a working class single mom of three hired to clean his luxury yacht.

Hanging tough in third place was Paramount's A Quiet Place with an estimated $7.6 million from 3,413 screens.

The superhero film has brought in 450.8 million dollars in North America. In comparison to the recent Marvel flicks, War's drop was higher than Black Panther's 44%, Thor: Ragnarok's 53% and Guardians of the Galaxy Volume Two's 55%. The Chadwick Boseman-starrer landed in sixth place, taking in $3.2 million from 1,641 locations in its 12th weekend.

Strong reviews -86% on Rotten Tomatoes and 76/100 from Metacritic- weren't enough to persuade ticket buyers into checking out the latest feature from Up in the Air director Jason Reitman.

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