In such an unsurprising way that it's nearly not even fun anymore, Avengers: Infinity War continues to rake in big bucks at the box office for both Marvel, and of course, Disney.

"Disney and Marvel's latest collaboration earned $112.5 million from 4,474 locations in its second frame", reported Rebecca Rubin of Variety. That would firmly place it again in the No. 1 spot, but it would fall short of second-weekend record-holder Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which made $149.2 million during its second weekend.

In North America, Infinity War earned an estimated $112.5 million this weekend, which is now the second-biggest second weekend of all time at the domestic box office.

The Marvel Studios film, which stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans and features a litany of superheroes, reached the milestone one day earlier than the previous record held by 2015's "Star Wars: The Force Awakens".

Should its current pace at the box office, with the added help from China, continue, it would be safe to assume that Infinity War could cross the $2 billion mark by the end of its run at theaters. Aside from Infinity War's opening weekend, its drop from weekend to weekend has remained consistently around 30 percent.

The top 10 is rounded out by Tully ($3.18 million), Black Panther ($3.14 million), Truth or Dare ($1.88 million), Super Troopers 2 ($1.81 million) and Bad Samaritan ($3.9 million).

This overtakes Black Panther impressive second weekend total of $111 million. This is thanks to the movie's release during the Christmas holidays!
