It may have been knocked from the top of the box office by fellow superhero sequel Deadpool 2, but Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War has continued its hugely impressive run by passing the $1.8 billion mark worldwide.
Domestically, Infinity War grossed $28.7 million on its fourth weekend to take its North American gross to $595 million, while it also added a further $84.4 million internationally. The latter includes $53.7 million in China, where the film has now amassed $302 million, becoming only the second movie to surpass $300 million in two different markets after Furious 7.
Globally, Infinity War is now the fourth biggest movie of all time behind Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($2.07 billion), Titanic ($2.1 billion) and Avatar ($2.8 billion). $2 billion remains likely for the Marvel blockbuster, but with Solo: A Star Wars Story incoming this week, it remains to be seen whether the superhero epic can surpass The Force Awakens and Titanic.
An unprecedented cinematic journey ten years in the making and spanning the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe, Marvel Studios’ “Avengers: Infinity War” brings to the screen the ultimate, deadliest showdown of all time. The Avengers and their Super Hero allies must be willing to sacrifice all in an attempt to defeat the powerful Thanos before his blitz of devastation and ruin puts an end to the universe.
