PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) — "Avengers: Infinity War" remains on top for the third week in a row.

The comic book-inspired superhero fantasy earned an estimated $62 million on its third weekend of release for another first-place finish.

That put it ahead of the two debuting attractions custom-fitted for Mother's Day weekend.

Second place went to the Melissa McCarthy-starring, mom-goes-back-to-college comedy, "Life of the Party." It totaled $19 million.

Third place belonged to the Gabrielle Union-starring, mom-protects-her-kids suspense thriller, "Breaking In," which earned $17 million.

With the blockbuster "Avengers: Infinity War" surpassing the $500 million mark, industry-wide totals were well below those of last weekend, but pretty much the equivalent of those of a year ago.
