Domestically, Infinity War retained top spot with $112.5 million (the second-biggest second weekend ever), pushing its North American haul to $450.8 million.

"This speedy sprint toward the coveted and exclusive $1 billion club is a testament to the undeniable global appeal and drawing power of the Marvel brand", said Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst at comScore.

Overseas, the mega-Superhero group pic grossed another $162.6-M for a foreign total of $713.3-M and $1.164-B worldwide. Among "Infinity War's" numerous accomplishments is being the fastest film to gross $1 billion, in just 11 days. As for the second best second weekend ever? It's already surpassed its modest mid-teens production budget. And the movie has still not touched down in China, where it is expected to draw a mammoth audience. Critics ripped apart the new version starring Eugenio Derbez and Anna Faris.




While the film received poor reviews, it also earned an A- CinemaScore, which often bodes well for word-of-mouth ticket sales.

The third weekend of Amy Schumer's "I Feel Pretty" secured the fourth slot with $4.9 million from 3,232 theaters.

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 US theaters on May 4, 2018.

Rounding out the top five was Warner/New Line's Rampage with an estimated $4.6 million from 3,151 screens. Down 30%, the John Krasinski directed feature has scared up a terrific $160 million after five weeks of release. There was not a lot to challenge it at the box office this weekend, but it likely wouldn't have mattered if there had been. Where available, the latest global numbers for Friday through Sunday are also included.
