Saturday Update:  As expected, Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War is still king of the box office with another $15.998 million taken in Friday, down an estimated 49 percent from last Friday and bringing the domestic haul above the $500 million threshold in 15 days — topping Star Wars: The Last Jedi (16 days) as the second fastest film to reach that mark, behind record-holder The Force Awakens (10 days). Its third weekend remains on target to gross in the realm of $60 million or slightly more, which would make it the fourth best third weekend ever.


With $502.01 million earned in North America thus far, Infinity overtook Finding Dory ($486.3 million) for 11th place on the all-time chart. By the end of this weekend, it looks to be up to 8th place ahead of The Dark Knight ($534.9 million), Rogue One ($532.2 million), and 2015’s Beauty and the Beast ($504 million).


According to Disney, there will be no official updates on Avengers‘ overseas performance (including a highly touted opening in China) until Sunday morning.


Life of the Party remains off to a positive start with an estimated $4.91 million opening day on Friday, comparable to the $5.0 million first day of Snatched last year on the same Mother’s Day weekend. The holiday may continue skewing projections, but for now a weekend between $18-22 million remains likely.


Breaking In also bowed in healthy fashion with $4.6 million yesterday as it heads toward a weekend around $15 million.


Meanwhile, Black Panther continued its efforts of reaching the $700 million domestic plateau with another $538,000 yesterday, bringing its cume to $694.8 million.


Early weekend estimates are below with updated estimates from studios to follow on Sunday.

Friday Report: Warner Bros. reports this morning that Life of the Party bowed to an estimated $700,000 from last night’s opening shows. That comes in ahead of Snatched‘s $650,000 start before the same Mother’s Day weekend one year ago, while coming in just under fellow Melissa McCarthy comedy The Boss and its $985,000 in April 2016.


Also posting an encouraging start, Universal’s Breaking In grossed $615,000 from early shows last night. That’s comparable to the studio’s Unfriended ($660,000) back in April 2015 and ahead of The Boy Next Door‘s $500,000 start earlier that year.


While the two openers court female audiences over Mother’s Day weekend, Avengers: Infinity War is set to post one of the biggest third weekends of all-time as it continues to steamroll the market. Check out our detailed weekend forecast and follow us on Twitter for continued updates.
