Avengers: Infinity War Finally Smashes Through $2 Billion Worldwide


You can now officially add Avengers: Infinity War to the prestigious list of movies to gross $2 billion worldwide – not that we’re surprised, mind you.

In doing so, it becomes only the fourth feature film ever to surpass the $2 billion milestone, an honor it now shares with The Force AwakensTitanic the one true box office king, James Cameron’s Avatarwhich is still somehow – almost inexplicably – in a league of its own at $2.78 billion.

For those on the lookout for a more thorough breakdown, Forbes is reporting that Infinity War‘s $655.7M domestic total will likely tick past Titanic ($659M) and its own unadjusted domestic earnings this weekend, though Black Panther‘s lifetime tally in North America ($699M) now appears to be just out of reach.

Overseas, it’s a similar story, as Marvel’s Herculean epic has raked in an eye-watering $1.34 billion. All of this combines for a total of $1.999.4 billion as of Sunday, June 10th, all but confirming that Marvel’s third Avengers movie has now sealed its place in the $2 billion club.

On home turf, Monday marked the first time that Avengers: Infinity War has grossed lower than $1 million since its release more than six weeks ago. Per Forbes, that’s the same number of consecutive $1m+ days as Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Spider-Man and Jurassic World, while the likes of Phantom Menace (61 days), Avatar (81 days) and Titanic (102 days) continue to be the gold standard in that department.

Still, today’s box office update is further proof that Marvel Studios made history with Avengers: Infinity War, as it’s now officially a two-billion-dollar movie, becoming only the fourth Hollywood production to do so.
