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 pulled in an additional $112.5 million in its second weekend, bringing its overall domestic total to an impressive $450.8 million, and giving it the second best second weekend ever, behind only Star Wars: The Force Awakens. That film, of course, had the benefit of the Christmas holiday, which helped push it towards a record breaking $149.2 million second weekend. As for the second best second weekend ever? Only $900k separates two Marvel films from the title. Infinity War managed to slighly edge out fellow Marvel film Black Panther's $111.6 million second weekend. That would give Disney the top three biggest second weekends of all time.

Internationally, Infinity War amassed another $162.6 million, thanks in part to a record breaking $17.6 million opening in Russia, bringing the film's worldwide total to $713.3 million -- with China still to come later this month. The film is currently sitting at $1.16 billion at the worldwide box office, and is now the #15 worldwide blockbuster of all-time.

With little to no competition until Deadpool 2's May 18th release, expect Avengers: Infinity War to continue to dominate at the box office in the coming weeks as the film approaches $500 million domestically.
