In its second weekend, Marvel Studios' Avengers: Infinity War retained its top spot at the box office, pulling in another $112.5 million domestically. The film has earned $18,464,603 million in India alone.

The film, which topped last weekend's box office on the strength of a record-setting bow, will add an estimated $112.5 million to its haul this weekend. Records are being set around the world, including for the biggest opening day ever in Russian Federation. The worldwide tally will also likely get a big bump next weekend, when the superhero ensemble opens in its final, and most likely largest, global market, China, on May 11.

MGM and Lionsgate's Pantelion Movies' gender-swapped remake of Garry Marshall's 1987 humor, "over board" watched the highest-grossing opening weekend for Pantelion Movies with a better-than-expected $14.8 million from 1,623 theaters.

Even though critics weren't particularly gained over by "over board", crowds gave the picture an even positive A- CinemaScore.

The only other new movie was the Charlize Theron starring TULLY, which opened in sixth place.

Third place went to "A Quiet Place", which has grossed $159.9 million in five weeks in theaters, and fourth place to "I Feel Pretty", now up to $37.8 million in weekend three.

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. With a domestic total of $450.8 million, Infinity War is also the second-fastest release to cross the $400 million mark, also behind only The Force Awakens.
