Avengers: Infinity War was set up to be a massive all-time blockbuster and its sophomore weekend lived up to the hype. Infinity War narrowly slipped by fellow Marvel Studios’ record breaker Black Panther to take the all-time second best weekend spot with $112 million. It claimed another unique spot this week taking the No. 15 spots on both the domestic and worldwide all-time charts.
Black Panther previously set the mark this year with a $111 million second weekend. Star Wars: The Force Awakens remains at the top spot with $149 million.
In 10 days, Infinity War has earned $450 million. That’s good enough to make a dramatic leap up the domestic all-time list. Infinity War is now No.15 on the list, trailing Avengers: Age of Ultron by $9 million.
By next weekend, Infinity War will easily cross over into the Top 10. Beauty and the Beast currently sits at No.10 with $504 million. At its current pace and with no box office competition for its third week, Infinity War is probably a safer bet to knock out The Dark Knight ($535 million).

At that point, it’s just a matter of getting past Star Wars: The Last Jedi ($620 million) and Avengers ($623 million). That seems very likely and now it’s more a question of how fast that happens.
Worldwide, Infinity War is also at the No. 15 all-time spot with $1,164 billion. The film should quickly surpass No. 14 Iron Man 3 ($1,214. billion) No. 13 The Fate of the Furious ($1,236 billion) and No. 12 Beauty and the Beast (1,263.5 billion).
