Avengers: Infinity War hits box-office milestone with $2 billion global take

Whoa! Break out the champagne, set Tony's spare Iron Man suits to "Kick-line Mode," and put your hands together for Disney and Marvel Studios' AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR which has cleared the $2 billion mark at the worldwide box office! With so many dollars earned for the superhero ensemble adventure, Infinity War is now the fourth film in history to achieve this milestone, and the first summer blockbuster to do so, when not adjusting for inflation.

Infinity War was declared a $2 billion earner on Monday, after 48 days of dominating theaters. The film now boasts a global total of $2.002 billion, including $656.1 million in North America and $1.346 billion overseas. According to the numbers, Infinity War now stands as the fifth-biggest title of all time domestically, and the third-biggest internationally. The total includes a near-$370 million take from China, where Marvel's latest adventure is now the third-largest Western film of all time.

By now, you're probably wondering what other films are included as members of the elite $2 Billion Earner Club. First up we have James Cameron's AVATAR with a total of $2.788 billion, followed by Cameron's TITANIC with $2.188 billion, and of course, STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS with $2.068 billion. In the past, JURASSIC WORLD came close to having a seat at the table after roaring at the box office with $1.672 billion earned. Will the release of JURASSIC WORLD: FALLEN KINGDOM be able to surpass its predecessor? I suppose we'll find out after the film is unleashed in theaters on June 22nd.

Congratulations to Disney and Marvel on such a momentous achievement. You've earned it, literally.
