As expected with such a massive debut weekend Avengers: Endgame remains at the top of the US box office for a second weekend with thriller The Intruder entering the chart at number 2.
Taking a mammoth $145.8 million on its second weekend of release the Marvel film continues to reign above all else in its path, the films US gross is now $619.7 million and the 8th top grossing film ever.
The drop from last week record breaking openieng was significant but similar to other films on its genre and the films posted the second highest second weekend gross after Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
THe film has a fight on its hands to beat the Star Wars movie but its possible, it will definitely become at least the second highest grossing film in the US ever.
This thriller starring Meagan Good and Dennis Quaid enters the box office at number 2 on its debut weekend taking $11 million dollars.
It had no chance agains the might of The Avengers but has dome well to be the highest new film of the week against stiff competition.
The political comedy starring Charlize Theron and Seth Rogen enters the box office at number 3 this week with a debut gross of $10 million.
Perhaps a little disappointing really as the film would have been a good bet to be the biggest new film of the week but audiences perhaps preferring a good thrill instead.
Animated comedies always do well at the box office and this is no exception as it enters at number 4 with a weekend gross of $8.5 million.
The Avengers studio mate falls from 2 to number 5 this week in the aftermath of Endgames record breaking weekend which saw a boost in this films takings.
The films takings this week are $4.3 million boosting its total gross to $420.7 million, the film is the 23rd highest grossing film ever in the US.
The film does take the honor of longest run on the US box office this week with 9 weeks of release, and still in the top 5, not bad!
