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

Irene MckinneyJun 14, 2018

Renner was out promoting his new comedy Tag when he revealed that some fans of Hawkeye weren't too happy with his absence in Avengers: Infinity War, so much so that they actually sent death threats to the directing duo behind the film. Movies released near the end of the year, on the other hand, can have huge runs that stretch into January and February, which are usually wastelands for big films (this year's Black Panther, notwithstanding). The film now sits at #4 of the all-time box office list and is $67 million away from passing 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.

Do you think the Russos deserved this kind of feedback for not putting Hawkeye in Avengers: Infinity War? "But if you like Infinity War, there's some stuff to come", Renner teased. Let's see how Infinity War does this weekend against the likes of The Incredibles. Black Panther remains the top grossing Marvel title stateside and is fighting its way to the $700M finish line, now at $699.4M, third highest of all-time after Force Awakens ($936.6M) and Avatar ($760.5M).

"We keep saying, 'Patience is a virtue.'" Joe Russo said before Infinity War's release.

Avengers: Infinity War is now playing in theaters! It's now the third highest-grossing offshore release of all time behind Avatar ($2.027 billion), and Titanic ($1.528 billion). It's the only the tenth film in China's history to earn more than 2 billion yuan in total and just the third import film to do so. In China, the film's $369.7 million gross to date ranks third all-time. James Cameron is still, after all these years, king of the world. It's safe to assume that it will, but it was safe to assume that Solo was going to be a big box office hit as well...and it wasn't.

It is also the most successful Hollywood film ever released in India.

Joe Russo pointed out that the previously-announced sequel could take place before Infinity War - like, for example, this summer's Ant-Man and the Wasp, and next March's Captain Marvel.
