"Infinity War" joins only three other films that crossed the $2 billion mark worldwide: 2009's "Avatar", 1997's "Titanic" and 2015's "Star Wars: The Force Awakens". Moreover, it was hardly a laborious line-cross for Infinity War, which opened back on April 27, and is still riding momentum. The only other movies in the US$2 billion club are Avatar, Titanic and Star Wars: The Force Awakens. But if you like Infinity War, there's some stuff to come.

Both the Avengers 4 writers and Chris Hemsworth have said the next movie is bigger than Infinity War.

The Avengers: Infinity War now has a current worldwide box office gross of $2,002,059,331, with a USA gross of $656,059,331, and a foreign gross of $1,346,000,000.

Avengers: Infinity War has achieved another major milestone: passing $2 billion at the global box office.

The Walt Disney Co. announced Tuesday that Infinity War reached the mark on Monday, about seven weeks (48 days) after release. Pic holds the record for biggest domestic debut ever with $257.7M in its opening weekend.

The film eventually clarified why - Clint was serving house arrest after he and Scott Lang (Ant-Man) struck a deal with the government in light of their involvement with Steve Rogers during the events of "Captain America: Civil War".

Avengers: Infinity War brings together 22 superheroes to fight one super villain Thanos.

Thanos, the extremely powerful Titan warlord, managed to collect all the infinity stones putting them on his gauntlet to become the most powerful being in the universe. 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.
