"Avengers: Infinity War" Breaks $2 Billion At Box Office

The film now stands alongside Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Titanic and Avatar as the only movies to hit this box office milestone!

Welcome to the $2 billion club, "Avengers: Infinity War".

An unprecedented cinematic journey ten years in the making and spanning the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe, Marvel Studios' Avengers: Infinity War brings to the screen the ultimate, deadliest showdown of all time.

Internationally, it is the third-highest grossing release ever with $1.346 billion, and its combined domestic and worldwide debuts set a record of $640.5 million.

Disney announced Tuesday that Infinity War reached the milestone in its 48th day of release, with a domestic total of $656.1 million and an worldwide total of $1.35 billion.

Wong can probably afford that metaphysical ham and rye now: Avengers: Infinity War has officially crossed $2 billion at the global box office, becoming only the fourth film in history to do so. Domestically, Infinity War still trails Black Panther by nearly $50 million and does not look like it will have the legs to beat that number by the time its run is over. It also holds the record for biggest domestic debut, raking in $257.7 million during its opening weekend. The film opened to a massive $199.3 million in China two weeks after the global debut and has gone on to become the third biggest release ever in the country with $369.7 million to date. Infinity War posted opening weekend numbers of over Rs 120 crore. Well, Thanos finally launched his primary attack in Avengers: Infinity War and Iron Man is going to have to think creatively to save the universe.

Actor Josh Brolin played the supervillain, Thanos.

The movie, which stars Robert Downey Jr, Scarlett Johansson, and Benedict Cumberbatch, among many others, is now the third consecutive Avengers movie to break the $1 billion barrier.

Although he didn't appear in Infinity War, the Russo brothers previously claimed Hawkeye's absence is "tied into the story", so it's possible he'll appear in Avengers 4.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the third Avengers film, and the 19th film in the MCU, eked passed the $2 billion mark on Monday.
