'Avengers: Infinity War' Crosses $2 Billion At Worldwide Box Office

'Avengers: Infinity War' Crosses $2 Billion At Worldwide Box Office

The Marvel tentpole now stands as the fourth highest-grossing film of all time, unadjusted for inflation, behind Avatar ($2.79 billion), Titanic ($2.19 billion), and Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($2.07 billion).

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.

It's only the fourth movie to ever achieve such a feat, joining 2009's Avatar, 1997's Titanic, and 2015's Star Wars: The Force Awakens. It holds the record for biggest domestic debut ever with $257.7 million in its opening weekend on April 27 to April 29, topping "The Force Awakens" by almost $10 million. "Infinity War" nabbed a record $640 million global opening and reached the $1 billion mark in a record 11 days. Internationally, it is the third highest grossing release ever with $1.346 billion. 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.

As Infinity War prepares to leave theaters, all eyes are now on next year's Avengers 4 and what hopes to be another record-breaking MCU movie.
