'Avengers' muscles rivals aside to continue box office rule

Internationally, Infinity War amassed another $162.6 million, thanks in part to a record breaking $17.6 million opening in Russian Federation, bringing the film's worldwide total to $713.3 million - with China still to come later this month.

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.

However, the film lost out to Star Wars: The Force Awakens which grossed an fantastic $149 million in its second ever weekend. It just remains to be seen where Infinity War ends its run, and how many records it can break on the way there. The Force Awakens, which earned $149.2 million in its second weekend, still holds the record for the biggest second weekend in North America.

Overseas, the mega-Superhero group pic grossed another $162.6-M for a foreign total of $713.3-M and $1.164-B worldwide.

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.

"Avengers: Infinity War" put another album that weekend, even destroying the box office contest and drumming up $1 billion more rapidly than every other film onto those novels.

In second place - and trailing by US$98 million - was Overboard, a gender-swapped remake of the 1987 romantic comedy with the same title.

"Black Panther", $3.1 million ($390,000 international). This is thanks to the movie's release during the Christmas holidays!

An unprecedented cinematic journey ten years in the making and spanning the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe, Marvel Studios' "Avengers: Infinity War" brings to the screen the ultimate, deadliest showdown of all time.
