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

Indeed, Infinity War placed at 5 last weekend, having added $7.2 million to its total, even besting the debuting Hotel Artemis, which came in at a disappointing 8.

The decade-long franchise-building exercise of MCU has reaped box-office wonders for the studio through the most ambitious superhero crossover film Infinity War - which has powered the franchise's cumulative grosses to $16.85 billion from 19 movies.

It's only the fourth movie to ever achieve such a feat, joining 2009's Avatar, 1997's Titanic, and 2015's Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Soars to $2 Billion at Worldwide Box Office

In the domestic market, which comprises of the United States and Canada, Infinity War is now the fifth highest-grossing film of all time, only behind The Force Awakens ($936.6 million), Avatar ($760.5 million), Black Panther ($699.4 million), and Titanic ($659.3 million).

There are at least 20 superheroes in the Marvel's Avengers: Infinity War, but there is no sign of Hawkeye. In China, the film's US$369.7 million gross to date ranks third all-time. Infinity War posted opening weekend numbers of over Rs 120 crore. Infinity War was a top performer in China, opening to the sweet tune of a reported $200 million, as well as in the United Kingdom, South Korea, Brazil, Mexico, and Australia, among others. He is on a house arrest after the events of Captain America: Civil War. Over its span of a decade, Marvel brought together nearly every superhero in its comics world onto the celluloid, to ultimately fight against the supervillain Thanos in the Infinity War. After Thanos (Josh Brolin) acquires the Infinity Stones, he erases half of all sentient life in the universe.

"Infinity War" is one of only four movies to ever reach $2 billion at the global box office. 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.
