Battle at the Box Office 5/14

Avengers: Infinity War continued to dominate at the box office this weekend, with a massive opening in China to add to it’s already huge international haul.

Infinity War took in another $62 million, putting it over $548 million domestically and, with $200 million in China, is up to over $1.607 billion worldwide.  It’s now the fifth highest grossing film of all time worldwide and the eighth highest grossing film domestically of all time.  Worldwide it’s also now the highest grossing superhero film of all time as well.

Life of the Party took second place with $17.8 million, which is the lowest opening for her in a starring role, behind even movies like Identity Thief and Tammy.

Breaking In took third with $17.6 million, which is above the studio’s expectations and almost triple it’s budget, so Universal is probably somewhat satisfied.  It’s the second best opening for director James McTeigue behind V for Vendetta.

Overboard and A Quiet Place rounded out the top 5, the former gaining 383 theaters and only dropping 32% from last weekend, making another $9.8 million.

Further down the list, documentary RGB came in 10th place with $1.18 million in 179 theaters while A Wrinkle in Time, somewhat inexplicably, gained back 1,984 theaters and went from 18th to 11th and took in another $1.15 million, bringing its total to over $96.8 million but Disney was probably hoping to eke it out to just over $100 million domestic.
