Avengers: Infinity War‘s historic opening weekend already cemented it as one of the biggest films in history, but the movie continued to perform exceptionally well every week since. Now, the Marvel Studios ensemble has reached a milestone that very few films ever have.
The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed that Infinity War has surpassed the $2 billion mark at the worldwide box office. This consists of $656 million domestically and $1.346 billion overseas, bringing its worldwide total to $2.002 billion. The overseas total was fueled by a whopping $368 million in China, making it the third biggest Western release ever.
Infinity War is the first superhero movie in history to crack $2 billion. In fact, it’s only the fourth film ever to reach it, following Avatar, Titanic, and Star Wars: The Force Awakens. It’s also the first summer movie to hit that goal; the other three movies came out during Christmas time.
This is a pretty staggering result for the movie, and despite summer competition, it’s still going. A true milestone for Marvel Studios in the midst of its 10th anniversary.
Stay tuned for more box office updates as we have them.
