After smashing the record for the biggest opening weekend of all time, as well as becoming the fastest movie to reach $1 billion, Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War is celebrating another box office success today as the movie becomes only the fourth film in history to reach $2 billion worldwide.
Domestically, Infinity War has pulled in $656.1 million and continues to pull in the cash, coming fifth in the chart this past weekend. However, it still trails Black Panther, which has earned $699.4 million in North America – Marvel’s biggest domestic haul.
Internationally, the superhero blockbuster has $1.346 billion for a grand total of $2.002 billion and counting. That’s the most for any Marvel movie (and any superhero movie) and will likely end up as the highest-grossing film not directed by James Cameron, a spot currently held by Star Wars: The Force Awakens on $2.06 billion.
Avatar remains the highest-grossing movie of all time on $2.78 billion, with Titanic following on $2.18 billion. (Source)

Liam Neeson is in negotiations to join Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson in Sony’s Men in Black spinoff.
Fate of the Furious filmmaker F. Gary Gray is directing the project, written by Iron Man screenwriters Matt Holloway and Art Marcum. The studio has the film dated for a June 14, 2019, release.
Hemsworth and Thompson are not playing the same alien-fighting and world-saving characters portrayed by Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones in the initial film trilogy. The new movie is set in the same onscreen world, however.
Plot details and the characters Hemsworth and Thompson will portray are being kept secret, but on the Neeson front, it is known that he will play the head of the Men in Black organization in London, where the story begins.
Walter F. Parkes and Laurie MacDonald, who produced the original movies, are back as producers, while Steven Spielberg is returning as executive producer. (Source)
How did five of the original big screen Avengers mark the release of Avengers: Infinity War? By getting matching tattoos of the superhero team’s logo from New York-based inker, Josh Lord, and by jointly giving Lord a rather less steady-handed version of that tat.
“Five of the original six Avengers got a tattoo,” Robert Downey Jr. exclusively tells EW. “And the sixth was the tattoo artist, who gave it to five of us, the one who opted out being Mark Ruffalo. It was (Scarlett) Johansson’s idea, and she and (Chris) Evans did it in New York. Then, their New York guy, Josh Lord, who is amazing, flew out to LA, he did me, did (Jeremy) Renner, and then we just bullied (Chris) Hemsworth into doing it, and he got it. And each one of us drew a line on the artist with his own tattoo gun and it was a total massacre. Each of us contributed to giving the tattoo artist the sixth tattoo that he designed for us. By the way, he’s got another one on him that Scarlett did, which is beautiful, which is crazy, because the line she drew on him, which was just supposed to be a straight line, looked like a lightning bolt. It was a mess.”
After smashing records for the biggest domestic and global openings in box office history last weekend, Avengers: Infinity War has now become the fastest movie to reach $1 billion at the worldwide box office.
Infinity War has hit the magical number just 11 days after it began its international roll out, beating the previous record of 12 days set by Star Wars: The Force Awakens at the end of 2015.
The Marvel Studios blockbuster is expected to comfortably retain top spot at the box office this weekend, and will presumably surpass The Avengers’ $1.52 billion by next weekend to become Marvel’s biggest ever release.
How far it can go remains to be seen, but the movie has its Chinese opening to come on Friday, May 11th, and a strong performance in that market will likely propel it to the $2 billion mark – a milestone which has only ever been achieved by Avatar, Titanic and Star Wars: The Force Awakens. (Source)
