‘AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR’ SCORES SECOND-BIGGEST WEEKEND EVER – (05/07/2018)

More records, smashed! Disney/Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War is coming in with $112.5 million in box office receipts, making it the second-best second weekend ever, behind Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($149.2M). The Anthony and Joe Russo-helmed film also crossed the $400 million mark in nine days yesterday, making it the second-fastest to that point after Force Awakens’ stunning eight-day record.

Infinity War is the fastest title ever to bring in $1 billion worldwide, and has also broken the all-time 4DX box office record for a film’s first two weekends. (4DX theaters have motion seats). 

  • Most other films filed in the single digits this weekend as Infinity mania took over. Relish Mix reports that its social media universe sports 2.3 billion followers, up from 2.1 billion just a week ago (driven by 224 million YouTube views). 
  • Says RelishMix per Deadline: “Upon exiting theatres, the hashtag/tag frenzy continues for #InfinityWar and @Avengers over-indexing all week between 440k to 540k posts-per-day and a total of 5.8M unique Twitter posts over the last 30-days.” 
  • Lionsgate/Pantelion/MGM’s Overboard took second place at $14.75 million at 1,623 venues, the biggest opener for Pantelion ever.
