'Avengers: Infinity War' Crosses $2 Billion Box Office Mark

It is just another milestone for Avengers: Infinity War.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the third Avengers film, and the 19th film in the MCU, eked passed the $2 billion mark on Monday. The superhero tentpole joins three other films that have crossed the milestone - "Avatar" at $2.79 billion, "Titanic" at $2.19 billion, and "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" at $2.07 billion.

Infinity War has been breaking records since it hit theaters on April 27: Not only did it earn the biggest domestic opening weekend of all time with $257.7 million, but it also became the fastest film ever to hit $1 billion worldwide, doing so in only 11 days.

It's a bit interesting that this list of $2 billion movies now strictly belongs to either Disney films or films directed by James Cameron. Domestically the film notched $6.8 million this last weekend, and internationally the film pulled in another $10.9 million.

Smith will be performing the World Cup's anthem alongside Kosovan singer Era Istrefi and Nicky Jam. In 1994 World Cup hosted by the US, Saudi Arabia reached round 16.

While all the MCU films have had post-credits scenes that teased upcoming installments in an ever-expanding cinematic universe, Infinity War was the first film to end on a straight-up cliffhanger.

An unprecedented cinematic journey ten years in the making and spanning the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe, Marvel Studios' "Avengers: Infinity War" brings to the screen the ultimate, deadliest showdown of all time. What's clear, however, is that Renner is confident that next year's untitled Avengers film will top everybody's expectations "Everybody's got to bite their tongue".

Iron Man, Thor, the Hulk and the rest of the Avengers unite to battle their most powerful enemy yet - the evil Thanos. 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. 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.
