Avengers: Infinity War passes $2 billion at box office

Avengers: Infinity War passes $2 billion at box office

"Infinity War" joins only three other films that crossed the $2 billion mark worldwide: 2009's "Avatar", 1997's "Titanic" and 2015's "Star Wars: The Force Awakens".

"We keep saying, 'Patience is a virtue.'" Joe Russo said before Infinity War's release.

Directors Joe and Anthony Russo received death threats from fans due to Hawkeye's absence in "Avengers: Infinity War", Jeremy Renner revealed.

However, there are still some elements of Infinity War that fans are having a hard time getting over, like the fact that Thanos isn't even the most disliked character in the movie.

"Infinity War" now ranks as the fifth highest-grossing film in the US and Canada with $656.1 million thus far.

Kyrie Irving Asked About His Future With The Celtics
It's the kind of thing that makes you raise your eyebrows if you're a Celtics fan or a person who wants Irving suiting up for their team some day.

Marvel's summer tentpole accomplished the feat on Monday with a running global total of $2.002 billion, which includes the domestic gross of $656.1 million and a mighty worldwide cumulative of $1.346 billion.

Marvel's superhero blockbuster is currently the fourth highest-grossing movie of all time (for now).

Fans launched petitions to have Marvel include Hawkeye in Infinity War's promotions, and Renner, for his part, played along with the mystery, posting cryptic photos and messages on social media. That figure places it third on the list of all time foreign earners behind Titanic and Avatar. The film opened to a massive $199.3 million in China two weeks after the global debut and has gone on to become the third biggest release ever in the country with $369.7 million to date. It's the only the tenth film in China's history to earn more than 2 billion yuan in total and just the third import film to do so. Its $257.7 million domestic opening weekend set a new record. James Cameron is still, after all these years, king of the world.

Other top territories include United Kingdom ($95.1M), South Korea ($92.8M), Brazil ($65.9M), Mexico ($59.9M), Australia ($46.3M), France ($45.3M), India ($43.6M), Germany ($43.4M), Russian Federation ($34.4M), and Japan ($33.6M).
