Deadpool 2 Finally Takes Down Infinity War, But Falls Short of Box Office Record

Deadpool 2 Finally Takes Down Infinity War, But Falls Short of Box Office Record
Heading into the weekend, there was practically no question that Deadpool 2 would end up atop the box office, going up against Book Club and Show Dogs, but the big question was could the sequel top the box office record for highest opening weekend for an R-rated movie, $132.4 million, set by the first Deadpool. As it turned out, the sequel couldn't quite top its predecessor, with the box office weekend estimates revealing Deadpool 2 has taken in an estimated $125 million. While some box office projections were as high as $150 million for the opening weekend, the superhero sequel fell just a bit short.

Deadpool 2 had a decided advantage over the original Deadpool in a number of ways, but it still couldn't top its opening weekend record. Deadpool 2 opened in a whopping 4,349 theaters, tying Marvel's The Avengers for the 11th widest release of all time. It was also a

Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War passes $1.8 billion to become fourth biggest movie of all time

It may have been knocked from the top of the box office by fellow superhero sequel Deadpool 2, but Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War has continued its hugely impressive run by passing $1.8 billion worldwide.

Domestically, Infinity War grossed $28.7 million on its fourth weekend to take its North American gross to $595 million, while it also added a further $84.4 million internationally. The latter includes $53.7 million in China, where the film has now amassed $302 million, becoming only the second movie to surpass $300 million in two different markets after Furious 7.

Globally, Infinity War is now the fourth biggest movie of all time behind Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($2.07 billion), Titanic ($2.1 billion) and Avatar ($2.8 billion). $2 billion remains likely for the Marvel blockbuster, but with Solo: A Star Wars Story incoming this week, it remains to be seen whether the superhero epic can surpass The Force Awakens and Titanic.

'Deadpool 2' Launches with Over $300 Million Worldwide

'Deadpool 2' Launches with Over $300 Million Worldwide
Even though Deadpool 2 didn't deliver a record opening domestically for an R-rated movie it still captured a few record of its own as well as delivered a couple studio records en route to an impressive $301.3 million worldwide debut. Meanwhile Avengers: Infinity War continued it's impressive run becoming the fourth largest global release of all-time while Paramount's Book Club and Global Road's Show Dogs delivered on expectations in their attempts at counter-programming against the pair of superhero features. Early indications were that Deadpool 2 would deliver a record opening for an R-rated film after bringing in a pair of R-rated records with $18.6 million from Thursday previews and a $53.3 million opening day. However, it wasn't able to maintain that momentum, finishing with a still impressive $125 million estimate for the three-day, which is enough to become the second largest R-rated opening ever behind the original's $132.4 million debut two years ago and

Avengers: Infinity War Cruises Past $1.8 Billion On Its Way To $2 Billion

Even before Avengers: Infinity War‘s arrival late last month, it was almost a foregone conclusion that the Marvel epic would crush box office records all over the globe.

And sure enough, after three weeks (and change) of absolute dominance, Infinity War‘s total cume has reached a staggering $1.81 billion worldwide, placing it ahead of Jurassic World ($1.672 billion) and now within striking distance of the almighty $2 billion. That’s thanks to the film pulling in another $28.7 million on home turf and $84.4 million overseas this weekend.

While unadjusted for inflation, Infinity War‘s $1.81 billion figure means Marvel’s Herculean blockbuster is now officially the biggest ever summer movie, as the only three films to gross higher than $2 billion opened in and around the festive period, and therefore benefited from a break in school term.

Unreleased James Cameron Sketches From Aliens And Terminator Surface

Three-time Academy Award winner James Cameron, who’s the proud owner of not only the highest grossing film worldwide, Avatar ($2.78B), but the second as well, Titanic ($2.18B), has played a significant role in shaping the cinematic landscape since 1984, which saw the release of his sophomore feature, The Terminator.

Two years later, the Canadian filmmaker followed up his sci-fi masterstroke with another, Aliens, a sequel to Ridley Scott’s 1979, genre-defining space epic. Although extremely preoccupied with the writing and development of his Avatar universe at the moment, which he’s been working on since 2009, Cameron took some time out of his busy schedule to share previously unseen sketches from both of the aforementioned movies.

The director, a gifted artist no doubt, is responsible for the designs of both the T-800 – which he sketched from a particularly vivid nightmare – and the Alien Queen. In the new book James Cameron’s Story of Science Fiction,

Marvel Reveals Avengers: Infinity War’s Digital Release Date

It’s been roughly three weeks now since Avengers: Infinity War made its historic debut, and it’s fair to say that the Marvel epic has left its mark on the global box office.

But enough talk about money; we’re now approaching the point where the event movie to end all event movies is going to begin turning its attention towards its home video release, as its box office run starts to wind down.

Infinity War Passes Jurassic World as 4th Biggest Movie Worldwide

Marvel's blockbuster Infinity War has reached yet another box office milestone, passing the 2015 blockbuster Jurassic World to become the fourth highest-grossing movie of all time, worldwide. The Marvel Phase 3 superhero blockbuster's global take is now at $1.686 billion, passing the $1.671 billion earned by Jurassic World in 2015. The top three movies of all time have all passed the $2 billion plateau, and it seems possible Avengers: Infinity War might be able to do so as well, but whether or not it can keep moving up the charts remains to be seen.

As of now, Avengers: Infinity War has taken in $562.9 million domestic and $1.123 million internationally for a global total of $1.686 billion. The $562.9 million domestic tally, after just 20 days in theaters, currently stands as the eighth highest of all time, and it is currently well ahead of the pace set by Black Panther, which took in $516.6 million by its 20th day, so it

Deadpool 2 Is Ready to Take Down Infinity War at the Box Office

Deadpool 2 Is Ready to Take Down Infinity War at the Box Office
While Avengers: Infinity War has easily dominated the first three weekends of summer, its time at the top has most likely come to an end. While there are three new movies hitting theaters this weekend, including the comedies Book Club and Show Dogs, it will be the R-rated superhero action comedy Deadpool 2 that will easily come out on top. If our projections are accurate, it will break its own record for the highest opening weekend for any R-rated movie, raking in a huge $153.7 million.

The most recent projections have put Deadpool 2 at around $150 million, but given the buzz swirling around the movie, it wouldn't be surprising to see it go even higher. When the first Deadpool was getting ready for its release, the initial box office projections were at roughly $50 million, which, for an R-rated superhero movie is definitely a solid number, but the Merc With the Mouth

Avengers: Infinity War” has only been in theaters for three weeks, but it’s already the highest-grossing superhero movie in the world — ever. Over the May 11-13 weekend the film raked in another $61 million at the domestic box office, more than enough to hold on to the number-one spot for the third straight week. That brings it to $547 million in our neck of the woods, but when you factor in international receipts it’s already up to $1.606 billion overall. No other superhero movie has ever made that much money.

After two weeks “Infinity War” broke the record as the fastest film to reach the billion-dollar mark. And in the seven days since then it has zoomed past “Black Panther”, “Avengers: Age of Ultron” and “The Avengers” to become the world’s biggest superhero movie. But it’s not stopping there.

Infinity War Scores Huge $200M Opening Weekend Box Office in China

Infinity War Scores Huge $200M Opening Weekend Box Office in China
While Avengers: Infinity War had no trouble taking the top spot at the domestic box office for a third weekend in a row, its debut in China is making headlines as well. Infinity War opened at an estimated $200 million in the country, which, in terms of U.S. currency, is the highest opening weekend of all time. However, in terms of local Chinese currency, adjusted for inflation/exchange rates, its the second highest debut of all time in the Middle Kingdom.

Heading into this weekend, the highest Chinese opening weekend in terms of U.S. dollars was Monster Hunt 2 ($187.9 million) with The Fate of the Furious earning $184.9 million. However, in terms of local currency, The Fate of the Furious still has the top spot with RMB1.352 billion, with Avengers: Infinity War in second with RMB1.266 billion. Still, this debut is easily the biggest Chinese opening weekend in Marvel Cinematic

Box Office: Infinity War Muscles Its Way Into All-Time Top 10 Domestic

Three weeks after its record opening, Avengers: Infinity War has truly secured its place among box office royalty.

Online analyst Box Office Mojo has crunched the numbers to reveal that at $547M, Infinity War is the eighth highest-grossing movie ever to grace the domestic box office, putting it somewhere between Star Wars: The Last Jedi and Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight on the official standings.

The sequel’s meteoric rise also spells bad news for Disney’s live-action Beauty and the Beast, which has slipped to 11th on the all-time domestic chart. Nevertheless, Infinity War‘s $61.8M weekend haul – a third weekend haul that’s bigger than some blockbusters earn during their first – pushes its North American total all the way to $547M.

Granted, Joe and Anthony Russo’s Herculean epic still has a long, long way to go if it’s to ever catch the likes of Avatar

Avengers: Infinity War Earned $200M-Plus In China This Weekend

This past Friday, Thanos and company made their way to the last major market Avengers: Infinity War had yet to open in, China, and the result, unsurprisingly, was one for the record books.

Having grossed an unprecedented $250 million-plus stateside, and subsequently becoming the fastest film to reach the $1 billion plateau, Infinity War, as it turns out, received quite the greeting in the Middle Kingdom as well.

After earning $9 million in Thursday previews, the culmination of Marvel Studios’ decade-long effort to unite all of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes on the big screen opened to the tune of $61 million on Friday in China, for a total of $70 million. A revised total slightly lower, albeit, than the $76 million initially reported.

Nevertheless, estimates now suggest that the Anthony and Joe Russo-directed blockbuster has hauled in at least $200 million in China this past weekend. While that’s well above the previous record holder, Monster

Infinity War Is Now the Highest Grossing Superhero Movie of All Time

Marvel's Infinity War has now earned over $1.6 billion worldwide, making it the highest grossing superhero movie of all time. The latest from the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been breaking records left and right and is also now the 5th highest grossing movie of all time. However, on domestic sales alone, the movie is still behind Black Panther and The Force Awakens, which will make for an interesting battle. Infinity War is still in its theatrical infancy, so there's plenty of time for the Thanos-led movie to smash some more records.

Infinity War started with a bang, or perhaps a snap, decimating the opening weekend records domestically and going on to do the same thing on the worldwide scale, knocking The Fate of the Furious off of the throne. Additionally, Infinity War also dethroned The Force Awakens as the fastest movie to reach 1 billion dollars worldwide. If that wasn't enough,

Avengers: Infinity War Wins for 3rd Weekend In a Row with $61.8M

As was expected, Marvel's early summer blockbuster Avengers: Infinity War easily won at the box office for its third weekend in a row, taking in $61.8 million. This weekend's tally helped push it past the $500 million mark with a current domestic total of $547.8 million. The movie passed the $500 million plateau after just 15 days in release, the second fastest movie of all time to hit that mark, behind Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which took just 10 days to reach half a billion dollars at the box office.

Avengers: Infinity War also passed another milestone internationally, reaching the $1 billion foreign plateau, on the strength of a massive $200 million opening weekend in China. Avengers: Infinity War currently has $1.059 billion from foreign markets, which, when combined with the $547.8 million domestic haul puts its global total at $1.606 billion, the fifth highest grossing movie of all time, surpassing the global tally of 2012's The Avengers ($1.518 billion

Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War overtakes The Avengers to become the highest-grossing superhero movie of all time

This was inevitable really, given that it has been shattering box office records left, right and centre these past couple of weeks, but Avengers: Infinity War has now surpassed 2012’s The Avengers to become not only the biggest Marvel movie of all time, but also the highest-grossing superhero movie in history.

Not bad for just three weekends.

Domestically, Avengers: Infinity War grossed $61.8 million this weekend, taking its domestic haul to $547 million. Internationally, it added a further $281 million this weekend – thanks in no small part to a $200 million debut in China. This has pushed its worldwide cume to $1.606 billion, topping the $1.519 billion total of the first Avengers movie.

Infinity was is currently the fifth biggest movie of all time behind Jurassic World ($1.671 billion), Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($2.068 billion), Titanic ($2.187 billion), and Avatar ($2.788 billion) and appears to be a safe bet to become only the fourth movie ever to crack the $2 billion mark.
