Disney's 'Avengers' tops box office after passing $1 billion

Domestically, Infinity War retained top spot with $112.5 million (the second-biggest second weekend ever), pushing its North American haul to $450.8 million.

Avengers: Infinity War had topped the charts at an estimated $1.164 billion worldwide and that is simply astounding.

"This speedy sprint toward the coveted and exclusive $1 billion club is a testament to the undeniable global appeal and drawing power of the Marvel brand", said Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst at comScore. Internationally, the film earned an estimated $162.6 million this weekend, making for a current foreign total of $713.3 million.

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. The decrease was lower than the 59% encountered by Age of Ultronin its second weekend but a bit steeper than the 50% experienced by The Avengers. It's already surpassed its modest mid-teens production budget. "We have a movie out there that plays to families and all audiences that should have success into Mother's Day and onwards".

While the film received poor reviews, it also earned an A- CinemaScore, which often bodes well for word-of-mouth ticket sales.

In fourth place was STX's I Feel Pretty with an estimated $4.9 million from 3,232 theaters.

Rounding out the top five is Dwayne Johnson's "Rampage".

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. Down 30%, the John Krasinski directed feature has scared up a terrific $160 million after five weeks of release. Check back on Tuesday for next weekend's predictions, but until then, take a look at the top 10 estimates for the weekend of May 4, courtesy of Box Office Mojo. And Marvel has another potential blockbuster, Deadpool 2, with Ryan Reynolds, arriving May 18.
