'Avengers: Infinity War' crosses $2 billion in box office

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 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".

Avengers: Infinity War has officially crossed the $2 billion mark!

Domestically, "Avengers: Infinity War" is the fifth-highest grossing pic of all time, with $656.1 million through June 11. Subsequent reports said that Infinity War outpaced Avengers: Age of Ultron's pre-release sales by 1000%.

Internationally, it is the third-highest grossing release ever with $1.346 billion, and its combined domestic and worldwide debuts set a record of $640.5 million. In China, the film's $369.7 million gross to date ranks third all-time. Indeed, Infinity War placed at 5 last weekend, having added $7.2 million to its total, even besting the debuting Hotel Artemis, which came in at a disappointing 8.

Thanos, the extremely powerful Titan warlord, managed to collect all the infinity stones putting them on his gauntlet to become the most powerful being in the universe.

Circling back to Infinity War, though, and it's fair to say that Hawkeye was sorely missed from the sequel's marketing campaign, resulting in a series of rather brilliant mock-up posters, as impassioned fans took it upon themselves to include Jeremy Renner's sharpshooter in the proceedings.

The movie, which stars Robert Downey Jr, Scarlett Johansson, and Benedict Cumberbatch, among many others, is now the third consecutive Avengers movie to break the $1 billion barrier.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the third Avengers film, and the 19th film in the MCU, eked passed the $2 billion mark on Monday.
