‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Becomes Fourth Pic To Cross $2 Billion Global Mark

‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Becomes Fourth Pic To Cross $2 Billion Global Mark

Marvel's latest billion dollar blockbuster Avengers: Infinity War is now the fourth highest grossing movie of all time after it passed the the $2 billion box office mark worldwide.


Infinity War is already, of course, Marvel Studios' highest-grossing release of all-time, besting the final global totals of its previous megamovie offerings, 2012's The Avengers ($1.5 billion) and 2015's Avengers: Age of Ultron ($1.4 billion), as well as this past February's cultural breakthrough hit, Black Panther ($1.345 billion). That film, which was Marvel's first to be directed by an African American and have a predominantly African American cast, broke records of its own before going on to make more than $1.3 billion globally. The superhero tentpole joins three other films that have crossed the milestone - "Avatar" at $2.79 billion, "Titanic" at $2.19 billion, and "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" at $2.07 billion. It broke a number of records when it debuted, including the record for the biggest opening weekend of all time with over $258 million - it was previously held by "Star Wars: The Force Awakens". Domestically the film notched $6.8 million this last weekend, and internationally the film pulled in another $10.9 million. 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. That said, Avengers 4 has the distinction of being a direct continuation of Infinity War, which will likely draw in a crowd who want to see the Infinity War story concluded. On a mission to collect all six Infinity Stones, Thanos plans to use the artifacts to inflict his twisted will on reality.
