It's only the fourth movie to ever achieve such a feat, joining 2009's Avatar, 1997's Titanic, and 2015's Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Much of Infinity War's total has come from worldwide box office receipts, particularly in China, where it's earned $369.7 million and become the country's third highest-grossing film ever.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the third Avengers film, and the 19th film in the MCU, eked passed the $2 billion mark on Monday. It also holds the record for biggest domestic debut, raking in $257.7 million during its opening weekend. That Marvel Studios standalone has amassed an astounding $699.3 million domestic, while Infinity War's domestic total now sits at $656.1 million. 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 movie opened to an impressive $199.3 million in China two weeks after its global debut and went on to become the third-biggest release ever in the country, with $369.7 million to date. A despot of intergalactic infamy, his goal is to collect all six Infinity Stones, artifacts of unimaginable power, and use them to inflict his twisted will on all of reality.

Although he didn't appear in Infinity War, the Russo brothers previously claimed Hawkeye's absence is "tied into the story", so it's possible he'll appear in Avengers 4. The fate of the planet and existence itself has never been more uncertain as everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment.
