AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR Global Box Office Tops $2 Billion

‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Becomes Fourth Pic To Cross $2 Billion Global Mark

Wong can probably afford that metaphysical ham and rye now: Avengers: Infinity War has officially crossed $2 billion at the global box office, becoming only the fourth film in history to do so. Moreover, it was hardly a laborious line-cross for Infinity War, which opened back on April 27, and is still riding momentum. 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.

Internationally, Infinity War is the third highest grossing release ever with $1.346B. Well, when it comes to movie blockbusters, they don't get much bigger than Avengers: Infinity War.

AT&T's stock fell as much as 2.5% and shares were up as much as 5.3% to more than $100 per share in after-hours trading Tuesday. The judge's ruling will likely be seen by tech and telecom giants as a green light to pursue a slew of major media acquisitions.

Mark Reilly and John Rocha sit down to give their thoughts about this box office achievement from Marvel. Its domestic and worldwide debuts over the April 27 weekend combined for a record-shattering global opening of $640.5 million even without China. The film, as the outlet points out, is also Marvel Studios' highest-grossing release ever, smashing The Avengers' $1.5 billion worldwide pull, Avengers: Age of Ultron's $1.4 billion take-home, and Black Panther's $1.345 billion global gross. It happened for The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, Star Wars, and now, the Marvel Cinematic Universe. And that's not all -domestically, Infinity War is the fifth highest grossing film of all time with $656.1 million.

The Walt Disney Co. announced Tuesday that "Infinity War" reached the mark Monday, about seven weeks after opening. It's now the third highest-grossing offshore release of all time behind Avatar ($2.027 billion), and Titanic ($1.528 billion). It holds the record for biggest domestic debut ever with $257.7 million in its opening weekend on April 27 to April 29, topping "The Force Awakens" by almost $10 million. After China, the top-grossing offshore regions for the film are the United Kingdom ($95.1 million), South Korea ($92.8 million), Brazil ($65.9 million), Mexico ($59.9million), Australia ($46.3 million), France ($45.3 million), India ($43.6 million) and Germany ($43.4 million).
