Avengers: Infinity War passes $2 billion at box office

Avengers Infinity War box office collection The Marvel film crossed 2 billion dollars in 48 days

The Walt Disney Co. announced Tuesday that Infinity War reached the mark on Monday, about seven weeks (48 days) after release. 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. It also holds the record for biggest domestic debut, raking in $257.7 million during its opening weekend. Even Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige said that Hawkeye skipping "Infinity War" is "one of the best things that ever happened" to the character. The supersized superhero hit has crossed the gigantic number in worldwide ticket sales, becoming another film that rarified the box-office milestone. Infinity War now stands as Marvel's highest-grossing film ever - although Black Panther still has it beat domestically with $699.4 million.

In theaters now, Avengers: Infinity War is directed by Joe and Anthony Russo and stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson, Paul Bettany, Anthony Mackie, Elizabeth Olsen, Tom Holland, Benedict Cumberbatch, Chadwick Boseman, Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper, Vin Diesel, Tom Hiddleston and Josh Brolin. It's only the fourth film in history to break that barrier, and the third to do so in its initial run (Titanic hit $2 billion on re-release). In China, the film's $369.7 million gross to date ranks third all-time.

It was also the most successful Hollywood film ever released in India. Well, Thanos finally launched his primary attack in Avengers: Infinity War and Iron Man is going to have to think creatively to save the universe.

Circling back to Infinity War, though, and it's fair to say that Hawkeye was sorely missed from the sequel's marketing campaign, resulting in a series of rather brilliant mock-up posters, as impassioned fans took it upon themselves to include Jeremy Renner's sharpshooter in the proceedings.
