This weekend saw the release of the comedy Overboard, the drama Tully, and the thriller Bad Samaritan.

In No. 1 is Avengers: Infinity War. The film surprised nobody by placing first yet again. It dropped 56.4 percent from its mammoth opening weekend, taking in $112.5M domestically and $275M in foreign markets. Notably, the superhero team-up flick also took in well over $1 billion, and currently sets at $1.2Bn worldwide, which is astounding, considering it’s only in its second weekend.

In second place is the latino comedy Overboard. The film took in $14.8M at the domestic box office. Given its overall poor reception with critics (it’s at 30 percent on Rotten Tomatoes) and its $12M budget, that’s not a bad first weekend. But will it be able to make up its marketing budget? Well, when all said and done, I’d be surprised if it didn’t come out in the black, especially when it comes out on home release.

In third place is A Quiet Place, continuing to do strong, taking in $7.6M in its FIFTH weekend in theaters. So far, it’s made $255.3M worldwide off its $17M budget. Given that nothing huge is coming out next weekend, I can see this one staying in the top five one last week before Deadpool 2 comes in and dominates.
