'Avengers' still beating box office records

The scene doesn't appear in Avengers: Infinity War at all, but it is especially misleading since it includes the Avengers' green goliath, the Hulk, who only appears briefly and early on in the film. The Marvel movie is still riding high on great reviews and its "A" CinemaScore, and the final figures definitely show that.

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. As for the second best second weekend ever? The film is currently sitting at $1.16 billion at the worldwide box office, and is now the #15 worldwide blockbuster of all-time. 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).

The $112.5 million that Infinity War is expected to make this weekend represents a dropoff of 56 percent from its opening weekend. The movie opens in China-the second-biggest movie market on the planet-on May 11, so box office results only stand to improve further still. Internationally, the film earned an estimated $162.6 million this weekend, making for a current foreign total of $713.3 million. That bests the 12 days it took Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Anna Faris and Eugenio Derbez star in the Lionsgate remake of a 1987 movie about a struggling single mother who persuades a rich playboy with amnesia that they are married.

The top 5 is rounded out by holdovers A Quiet Place with $7.6 million, I Feel Pretty with $4.9 million and Rampage with $4.6 million.
