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

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

Disney and Marvel's massive superhero ensemble was approaching the benchmark over the weekend, when new releases Hereditary and Ocean's 8 rocked cinemas, and Deadline confirms that the film officially crossed the mark on Tuesday, 48 days after its launch on April 27.

Fans launched petitions to have Marvel include Hawkeye in Infinity War's promotions, and Renner, for his part, played along with the mystery, posting cryptic photos and messages on social media.

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. After starring in three solo movies and playing prominent roles in three other Marvel films, now seems like an appropriate time for Iron Man, or at least for Tony Stark, to slowly bow out of the spotlight. "But if you like Infinity War, there's some stuff to come", Renner shared in the same interview. That means it's unlikely that Infinity War will catch up to Titanic, and Avatar remains untouchable.

Infinity War now ranks as the fifth highest-grossing film in the United States and Canada with US$656.1 million thus far. That figure places it third on the list of all time foreign earners behind Titanic and Avatar. In China, the film's $369.7 million gross to date ranks third all-time. This makes it the third-highest grossing film internationally, and the fifth-biggest stateside. The same report predicts a sure-shot $2 billion gross for Avengers 4. Infinity War ($369.7 million) is now the third highest-earning import film of all time in China, only behind The Fate of the Furious ($392.8 million) and Furious 7 ($390.9 million). 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.
