Much in the same manner that the Mad Titan (Josh Brolin) massacred half of all life in the universe, Avengers: Infinity War annihilated the competition at the box office and now, you can reference each and every record obliterated by the fourth biggest release of all time, courtesy of this handy, punctilious infographic (seen down below)
During a roughly four-month-long theatrical run, Avengers: Infinity War, directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, amassed many a ticket booth touchstone. Most notably, the nineteenth entry into the Marvel Cinematic Universe opened to an unprecedented $250 million-plus stateside and subsequently became the fastest film to reach the $1 billion plateau, which, in turn, assisted the third supergroup installment in becoming only the fourth motion picture ever to conquer the elusive $2 billion plateau – behind only Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($2.06B), Titanic ($2.18B) and Avatar ($2.78B).

What’s more, the culmination of a decade-long effort to unite Earth’s Mightiest Heroes on the big screen helped the studio exceed $17 billion – and counting – hauled in at the worldwide box office. Not to mention, Marvel can now lay claim to four of the top ten highest-grossing movies of all time in the form of Black Panther ($1.34B), Age of Ultron ($1.40B), Marvel’s The Avengers ($1.51B) and, of course, Infinity War ($2.04B).
While the theatrical run of Avengers: Infinity War is undoubtedly one for the record book, the next time you’ll be able to catch the titular supergroup on the big screen – well, what’s left of them, anyway – is in Avengers 4, which is slated to be an even bigger box office smash, if you can believe it. The twenty-second MCU installment is currently scheduled for a May 3rd release next year, and we can’t wait to see the kind of numbers it pulls in.
