Weekend box office: Avengers: Infinity War keeps going strong

Fortnite is getting a crossover with Marcel which allows you to turn in Thanos from Infinity War

Internationally, Avengers: Infinity War added $162.6 million this weekend and has earned a total of $713.3 million, with China still to go on May 11.

The superhero mashup movie Avengers: Infinity War has minted over United States dollars one billion worldwide, setting the record for the fastest film to reach the milestone. Records are being set around the world, including for the biggest opening day ever in Russian Federation.

There was little new competition this weekend in the blockbuster space, although there were a handful of other options, like "Overboard", which came in a very distant second to "Avengers", but still made a notable splash for a film its size.

The superhero tentpole opened to $257.6 million last weekend, attaining the highest-grossing opening weekend of all time.

As of May, 2 YUM! Brands, Inc. (YUM) EPS Estimated At $0.68
Brands, Inc. (NYSE:YUM) sales have annually surged -15.50% on average, however its earnings per share growth remained at 8.20%. The stock of Range Resources Corporation (NYSE:RRC) has "Neutral" rating given on Monday , March 21 by Macquarie Research.

Even though critics weren't particularly gained over by "over board", crowds gave the picture an even positive A- CinemaScore. Down 40% in its third week, the Amy Schumer comedy has earned $37.8 million so far.

Set to close the weekend with $4.6 million (for a cumulative total of $84.8 million), "Rampage" takes #5.

The latest feature from the director of Geostorm was a disaster unto itself in its first weekend on 2,007 screens. We projected that, if Avengers: Infinity War dropped 40%, it would end up eclipsing the second weekend record, with our projections for the second weekend coming in at $154.5 million, but its second weekend drop was much more significant than expected, dropping 56.4%. Looking ahead to next weekend, only two movies will arrive in wide release, with Universal's thriller Breaking In, starring Gabrielle Union, and New Line Cinema's Life of the Party, starring Melissa McCarthy.
