Infinity War has officially crossed the $2 billion mark at the global box office as of yesterday in its 48th day of release!
All three of those films were released in December, which makes "Infinity War" the first film released outside of the holiday season to make $2 billion globally, when not accounting for inflation. Domestically, Avengers: Infinity War stands as the fifth highest grossing film of all time with $656.1 million through June 11, 2018. 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".
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.
‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Soars to $2 Billion at Worldwide Box Office
While the Ryan Coogler-directed flick is perched atop the MCU domestic chart at almost $700 million, a figure the Anthony and Joe Russo-directed blockbuster can consider a pipe dream at best, the fact that the third Avengers installment is about to make cinematic history by becoming the fourth feature ever to cross the $2 billion plateau alone is enough to dwarf any and all of T'Challa's achievements. After another successful weekend, Infinity War just misses out on Avatar's record of being the fastest movie to reach that figure. The movie opened to an impressive $199.3 million in China two weeks after its global debut and went on to become the third-biggest release ever in the country, with $369.7 million to date.
Anthony and Joe Russo directed the film, which was produced by Kevin Feige. Everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment - the fate of Earth and existence itself has never been more uncertain. The as-yet-untitled Avengers 4 is scheduled to hit theaters May 3, 2019.
