In four short weeks, Avengers: Infinity War has cemented its status as one of the biggest movies, well, ever.
A $1.85 billion gross is enough to place Marvel’s opus among the box office elite, as only Avatar, Titanic and Star Wars: The Force Awakens earned more across their respective runs.
The good news just keeps coming, too, as Infinity War recently clinched the #1 spot in China, where it’s since become Marvel’s highest-grossing movie, as well as the third most successful Hollywood import in history – only Furious 7 and The Fate of the Furious, two action-oriented titles with huge appeal overseas, have earned more.
And in order to ensure excitement remains at a fever-pitch, Marvel Studios has now rolled out yet another gallery of HD images from Avengers: Infinity War, with this particular batch placing a laser focus on the friendly fire that ensues between Earth’s Mightiest Heroes and the Guardians of the Galaxy, only for the two groups to realize that they’re on the same team. “Why is Gamora!”
On home turf, Infinity War recently broke past $600M and will likely end its domestic run at around $660M – just shy of Black Panther‘s haul. And overall? $2 billion is still well within reach, though not until Memorial Day Weekend will we be able to get a better read on the film’s final tally.
Avengers: Infinity War is currently screening all across the globe, with the so-far untitled Avengers 4 primed to close the book on this current Marvel chapter – and herald a “turning point” for the entire MCU, if yesterday’s leaked synopsis is any indication – come 2019. The only question that remains, is, on how Earth will Iron Man, Cap and the rest of the gang manage to reverse Thanos’ devastating actions from the last film?
