Avengers: Infinity War Becomes The Fourth Film To Net $2 Billion Box-office Earnings
Disney Marvel Studios production Avengers: Infinity War netted a total of $2 billion at the box-office on Monday, its 48th day in theatres.

The blockbuster movie joined the elite $2 billion-club that have just three other films. The first film to join the $2 billion club was Titanic in 1997, followed by Avatar in 2009 and Star Wars: The Force Awakens in 2015.

The superhero-film crossed the humongous number in worldwide ticket sales, 33% of which is domestic, while the majority, 67% of its revenues came from its international run. In just 45 days, $2 billion is still a growing number, but definitely one that beats the 2012’s The Avengers that collected $1.5 billion and 2015's Avengers: Age of Ultron which earned $1.4 billion.

The Avengers latest installment broke the worldwide box office record for the highest opening weekend collection, grossing approximately $641 million when it released on April 26.

In fact the Marvel Cinematic Universe flick’s opening weekend collection surpassed the previous record held by Universal Studios’ blockbuster production The Fate of the Furious which grossed $541 million.

Internationally the Infinity War is the third-highest grossing film ever with around $1.346 billion overseas, just behind Titanic ($1.528 billion) and Avatar ($2.07 billion).

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, the latest to join the long-running Jurassic Park franchise, made its overseas debut last weekend and saw an opening box-office collection worth $151 million.

The fourth installment of the MCU movie Avengers 4 is all-set to release on May 4, 2019 in North America.
