Avengers: Infinity War Box Office Hits $2 Billion Worldwide

Avengers: Infinity War was released nearly two months ago, but it continues to rake in billions at the box office.

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.

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. It's only the fourth film in history to break that barrier, and the third to do so in its initial run (Titanic hit $2 billion on re-release). It broke a number of records when it debuted, including the record for the biggest opening weekend of all time with over $258 million - it was previously held by "Star Wars: The Force Awakens".

Infinity War has taken in $656.1 million in domestic box office receipts, making it the fifth highest domestic earner of all time, just behind Titanic, which has an all-time domestic box office total of $659,363,944.

NewsAlert: Nadal beats Thiem in straight sets for 11th French Open title
Seventh seed Thiem is the first Austrian to make a final at the majors since Thomas Muster was champion in Paris in 1995. The two stars have combined to win the past six Slams.

It was the #1 film for three consecutive weeks and remains in the top five.

While all the MCU films have had post-credits scenes that teased upcoming installments in an ever-expanding cinematic universe, Infinity War was the first film to end on a straight-up cliffhanger. Internationally, it is the third highest grossing release ever with $1.346 billion.

Disney looks to repeat, or even possibly exceed, the success of "Infinity War" a little less than a year from now when its sequel "Avengers 4" opens on May 3, 2019.

Avengers: Infinity War is now playing everywhere. Everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment - the fate of Earth and existence itself has never been more uncertain.
