Avengers: Infinity War soars past the $2 billion mark globally

The epic superhero movie is now just behind Avatar, Titanic and Star Wars: The Force Awakens in box office records - just six weeks after its worldwide release.

Infinity War worldwide is Marvel's highest release ever topping 2012's Avengers ($1.5 billion), and followed by Avengers: Age of Ultron ($1.4 billion) and Black Panther ($1.345 billion).

"Avengers: Infinity War" reached a box-office milestone this week, as it crossed $2 billion globally as of Monday after just 48 days in theaters. "But if you like 'Infinity War, ' there's some stuff to come". Let's see how Infinity War does this weekend against the likes of The Incredibles. Pic holds the record for biggest domestic debut ever with $257.7M in its opening weekend.

"We keep saying, 'Patience is a virtue.'" Joe Russo said before Infinity War's release. Infinity War ($369.7 million) is now the third highest-earning import film of all time in China, only behind The Fate of the Furious ($392.8 million) and Furious 7 ($390.9 million).

Additionally, Infinity War is already the fifth-highest grossing film in domestic box office record, now sitting at $655.1 million, inevitably set to overtake Black Panther ($699.4M) and Titanic ($659.3M), and likely set to finish just behind The Force Awakens ($936.6M) and Avatar ($760.5M).

No title has been revealed so far, although the Russos and Marvel chief Kevin Feige have said that the title could have been a plot spoiler for Infinity War. The same report predicts a sure-shot $2 billion gross for Avengers 4.

It's a bit interesting that this list of $2 billion movies now strictly belongs to either Disney films or films directed by James Cameron.

Since being released in late April, the superhero film has broken multiple box office records. It's also the highest-grossing Hollywood film in India and Thailand. After China, the top-grossing offshore regions for the film are the United Kingdom ($95.1 million), South Korea ($92.8 million), Brazil ($65.9 million), Mexico ($59.9million), Australia ($46.3 million), France ($45.3 million), India ($43.6 million) and Germany ($43.4 million). Anthony and Joe Russo have brought the story alive on the big screen with actors like Robert Downey Jr, Mark Ruffalo, Benedict Cumberbatch and Scarlett Johansson.

Avengers: Infinity War is one step closer to making infinity dollars.
