WHAT DID YOU SEE at the movies this weekend???

In its second weekend in theaters, "Avengers: Infinity War" continues to dominate in North America.

Star Wars: The Pressure Awakens holds the present document for the quickest movie to $1bn, having accomplished it in 12 days when it launched simply earlier than Christmas in 2015.

Infinity War unites dozens of the MCU's many superheroes to fight against Thanos' (Josh Brolin) quest to gather all of the Infinity Stones and take over the universe.


"Avengers: Infinity War" earns $112.47 million over the weekend to win the box office for a second-straight weekend.

After delivering the biggest box office opening in history last week, Disney and Marvel's superhero epic is on track to earn an estimated $112.5 million from 4,474 theaters in the US and Canada this weekend, crushing its competitors while scoring the second-best second weekend ever, not adjusted for inflation. The film, a remake of the Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell classic, brought in a respectable $14.7 million after receiving mostly negative reviews from critics. The film stars Anna Faris and Eugenio Derbez as unlikely lovers, and was produced by MGM and Pantelion Films, a Lionsgate-backed production company aimed at Latino audiences. "Rampage" was directed by Brad Peyton, the film stars Dwayne Johnson, Naomie Harris, and Malin Akerman. In four weeks, its domestic total is $84.7 million.

The new "Avengers" movie has helped turned around the year's box office fortunes, turning from negative territory to up 5.1 percent over the same period last year, according to ComScore.

- Along with "Overboard", this weekend's notable new releases included "Tully" (#6, $3.2 million) and "Bad Samaritan" (#10, $1.8 million). The horror thriller features Robert Sheehan as a burglar who disturbs a kidnapping and faces the wrath of the kidnapper, played by David Tennant.
