Avengers: Infinity War passes $2 billion at box office

Avengers: Infinity War passes $2 billion at box office

Apparently, Renner is pretty excited about what his character will have to do, even if he can't share any real details. This makes Infinity War the fourth film in movie history to earn such a distinction. Avengers: Infinity War now stands at United States dollars $ 2.01 billion. 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". And that's not all -domestically, Infinity War is the fifth highest grossing film of all time with $656.1 million. 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.

The film got a flying start in India too by recording a gross box office collection of Rs 120.9 crore in its opening weekend.

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

Fans first noticed Hawkeye's absence following the release of the movie's first trailer November of previous year.

‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Becomes Fourth Pic To Cross $2 Billion Global Mark

On the global stage, it's now sitting on $1.346 billion and kicked off that good fortune with the second biggest worldwide debut of all time with $382 million, bested only by The Fate of the Furious - the latter had the advantage of also opening in China and earning $185 million from the Asian market alone though. In China, the film's biggest overseas territory, and the second highest-collecting region after North America, Infinity War has raked in an excellent gross of $369.7 million until 12 June. And it's technically only half a movie, as Avengers 4 - whatever it will end up being called - is only hitting cinemas next year May.

An Avengers sequel to Infinity War is scheduled to be released in May next year.

A total of $1.35 billion of Infinity War's $2 billion revenue comes from global territories.

Renner was predictably tightlipped about Avengers 4 (the Russos "cooked up a story for him that is a little bit of a long play" for the film).
