Deadpool 2 Easily Takes Weekend with $125 million


The Merc with the mouth is back, as the R-Rated comic book flick, Deadpool 2 easily dominated the weekend with $125 million.  Although, slightly down from the original Deadpool's $132.4 million, it managed to pull in an R-rated record of $176 million overseas.  Deadpool 2 has an early worldwide total of $301 million.

The past few weekend's number one movie, Avengers: Infinity War, took somewhat of a hit as it slipped to 2nd place ($28.7 million). However, it's already made $595 million domestically and $1.2 billion overseas.  It has a worldwide total of $1.8 billion, making it the 4th highest grossing movie of all time.  There is a good possibility that Infinity War will pass Star Wars: The Force Awakens' $2.068 billion for 3rd place.

Avengers: Infinity War Nabs Third Weekend in a Row with $62 million

The Marvel film, Avengers: Infinity War easily held on to the top spot for the third weekend in a row ($61.8 million), helping it's domestic total grow to $546.8 million.  Overseas, it grew even bigger as it debuted in China to $200 million (which apparently is the second biggest debut for a film outside of China) just behind The Fate of the Furious.  This brings it's overseas total to $1.06 billion and worldwide total of $1.6 billion. So, it has become the highest grossing superhero pic of all time, worldwide, beating the original The Avengers' $1.52 billion take.  Infinity War now hovers at 5th of all time and should quickly slip into Jurassic World's 4th place which is less than $70 million away.

Avengers: Infinity War Crushes 2nd Weekend with $112.5 million

The latest in the Marvel saga, Avengers: Infinity War, easily remained on top the box office this weekend with $112.5 in it's second weekend.  Though, it doesn't beat 2nd weekend record holder Star Wars: The Force Awakens' $149.2 million, it surpassed Black Panther's $111.7 million second weekend for second place (in second weekend, confused?).

Worldwide, Infinity War continues to break records as it is now the fastest movie to hit the $1 billion mark.  It took 11 days to surpass that milestone as The Force Awakens did in 12.  Infinity War has made $1.164 billion worldwide, so far.

As for newcomer, the remake Overboard, debuted to a better than expected $14.8 million for second place.

Avengers: Infinity War to Conquer Second Weekend

With a few movies opening to a moderately wide release (Bad Samaritan, Overboard, and Tully are all opening below 1800 theaters) Avengers: Infinity War should easily dominate it's second weekend of release.  It is also in prime spot to surpass Star Wars: A Force Awakens' $149 million second weekend record.
