Avengers: Infinity War officially crosses $2 billion mark worldwide

Infinity War hit this major milestone yesterday afternoon, becoming only the fourth film in history - behind Avatar, Titanic, and Star Wars: The Force Awakens - to ever do so. In Infinity War, Doctor Strange sees only one outcome of the Avengers defeating Thanos and gives time stone up to The Mad Titan. Rest of the 3 are - Avatar topping the list with USD $ 2.78 billion, on the second it's everyone's favourite Titanic with USD $ 2.18 billion and on the third, it's Star Wars: The Force Awakens with USD $ 2.06 billion.

Internationally, Infinity War is the third highest grossing release ever with $1.346B. Actor Jeremy Renner told USA Today that Avengers: Infinity War directors Anthony and Joe Russo "got way too many death threats" for leaving Hawkeye out of the film. Domestically, Avengers: Infinity War is the fifth-highest grossing film of all time, with $656.1 million.

Avengers: Infinity War was released nearly two months ago, but it continues to rake in billions at the box office. 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. It also holds the record for the biggest domestic debut of all time as it earned $257.7 million in its opening weekend on 27 April - during that weekend it also became the second fastest film to earn $100 million and the fastest to $200 million. The other three films came out during December, when studios tend to release their prestige films in time to qualify for Oscar consideration. Infinity War was a top performer in China, opening to the sweet tune of a reported $200 million, as well as in the United Kingdom, South Korea, Brazil, Mexico, and Australia, among others. Well, Thanos finally launched his primary attack in Avengers: Infinity War and Iron Man is going to have to think creatively to save the universe.
