‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Remains the Life of the Box-Office Party, but Melissa McCarthy Disappoints

All Marvel, all the time. At $61.8 million in its third weekend, “Avengers: Infinity War” had a higher gross than any opening weekend this year. That will continue with the release of “Deadpool 2” this week — presumably the last Marvel movie from 20th Century Fox, pending the Disney takeover.

This trio reinforces the sense that Marvel is the biggest force in global cinema, more than even the Star Wars franchise. (“Solo: A Star Wars Story” May 25 will be a chance to counter that belief.)

Infinity” grossed $547 million in 17 days. That is second best (in adjusted grosses) ever for that brief period, behind only “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.” Its third weekend total is just behind the adjusted gross for “The Avengers” and “Black Panther” at the same point.

A $200 million opening in China, the last major country to open, propelled the worldwide gross for “Infinity” to $1.6 billion. That places it ahead

‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Rules No. 1, While ‘Overboard’ Stays Afloat and ‘Tully’ Drowns

‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Rules No. 1, While ‘Overboard’ Stays Afloat and ‘Tully’ Drowns
Avengers: Infinity War” dropped 56 percent in its second weekend to gross an estimated $112.5 million. Despite three new wide openings led by “Overboard,” the Marvel film comprised more than two thirds of all ticket sales. It looks like we’re back to the feast-or-famine trend, especially with “Deadpool 2” in two weeks and “Solo: A Star Wars Story” right after.

If the feasts like “Black Panther” and “Infinity War” keep performing, exhibitors will be happy for the short term. Those two Marvel titles took No. 1 for seven weeks so far in 2018, and have a domestic take to date over $1.1 billion. “A Quiet Place” is a very distant if impressive third, but in the top titles of 2018 it takes nos. 3-15 to equal those two Marvel movies.

Avengers: Infinity War” has now made $450 million domestic in 10 days. Internationally it’s $713 million, with China still to come, for a combined total of $1.164 billion.

Avengers: Infinity War Crushes the Box Office In Week 2 with $112.4M
After its monstrous, record-breaking opening weekend, there was no question that Avengers: Infinity War would repeat atop the box office, going up against three movies arriving in less than half the theaters Infinity War is playing in. The only real question that remained was could Avengers: Infinity War pull off a big enough second frame to break the second weekend record of $149.2 million set by Star Wars: The Force Awakens in 2015? Today we learned the answer to that question, which is no, with Avengers: Infinity War easily taking the top spot with $112.4 million.

While Avengers: Infinity War had no trouble breaking the $247.9 million opening weekend record set by Star Wars: The Force Awakens, pulling $257.6 million, it dropped too much in its second weekend. In Star Wars: The Force Awakens' second weekend, it dropped just 39.8% to take in $149.2 million in its second frame, and an additional 39.5% in its third weekend
