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

13 June 2018

The Walt Disney Co. announced yesterday that Infinity War reached the mark on Monday, about seven weeks after opening. The film now stands alongside Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Titanic and Avatar as the only movies to hit this box office milestone!

Of Infinity War's $2 billion-plus worldwide total, $1.346 billion came from overseas sales, which even contains boosts from the normally Marvel-resistant movie market of China, where it made an astounding (for China, ) $369.7 million, making it the country's third-biggest box office haul. That Marvel Studios standalone has amassed an astounding $699.3 million domestic, while Infinity War's domestic total now sits at $656.1 million.

Since being released in late April, the superhero film has broken multiple box office records. It reached the milestone one day earlier than "Star Wars: The Force Awakens".

Much of Infinity War's total has come from worldwide box office receipts, particularly in China, where it's earned $369.7 million and become the country's third highest-grossing film ever.
