‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Becomes One of Cinema’s $2 Billion Grossers

Updated On 13 Jun, 2018 Published On

Marvel Studio’s Avengers: Infinity War has made history as it is the fourth film to date to gross more than $2 billion. Likewise, it is also the first film released in summer to gross over $2 billion in the global box office.

The movie hit the mark on Monday as just last week, it was $17.7 million short to reach $2 billion, and on Sunday, it was only $2 million short to reach the mark. 

Last week with a running gross of $654 million, it crossed the domestic earning of Jurassic World and at the same time, out-shadowed the worldwide total of Star Wars: The Last Jedi and Black Panther.

Infinity War marked a new point in the achievements made by the Avengers franchise as it earned $258 million domestically and $640 million globally during the openings in April.

As of now, Avengers: Infinity War has joined the $2 billion elite club alongside Titanic, Avatar and Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Meanwhile, what’s unique about the film reaching the mark is that Avatar and Star Wars: The Force Awakens were released in December which increased their ticket sales. While Titanic, on the other hand, required two re-releases to earn $2 billion.

During the initial release of Infinity War, it was the only blockbuster movie in the theater, but soon enough Deadpool 2 arrived as a competition still leaving the movie’s box office untouched.
