Adjust Comment Print

Though it quickly crossed into the billion-dollar territory after just 11 days, one thing still stands in its way when it comes to ultimate glory: Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The Marvel movie is still riding high on great reviews and its "A" CinemaScore, and the final figures definitely show that.

Should its current pace at the box office, with the added help from China, continue, it would be safe to assume that Infinity War could cross the $2 billion mark by the end of its run at theaters.

"This was not the strongest weekend ever regarding the official kick-off of the summer season, but we could be looking at a record May ultimately", Dergarabedian said, noting upcoming releases like "Deadpool 2" (May 18) and "Solo: A Star Wars Story" (May 25).

The Disney/Marvel film continued to vaporise its competition in its second week, becoming the fastest film ever to cross US$1 billion (S$1.33 billion) globally.

With an estimated global total of $1.16 billion, Avengers: Infinity War is now the fifth highest-grossing superhero movie of all time worldwide. 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.

And "Tully", starring Charlize Theron, launched on 1,353 screens with $3.2 million.

The more important question is whether A Quiet Place will quietly sneak its way to $200 million.

"I Feel Pretty", $4.9 million ($3.2 million international).

This overtakes Black Panther impressive second weekend total of $111 million.
