‘Infinity War’ hits $2B

THE supersized superhero hit “Avengers: Infinity War” has crossed $2 billion in worldwide ticket sales, becoming only the fourth film to reach that milestone.

The Walt Disney Co. announced that “Infinity War” reached the mark Monday, about seven weeks after opening. The only other movies in the $2 billion club are “Avatar,” ″Titanic” and “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.”

“Infinity War” currently ranks as the fifth highest-grossing film in the US and Canada with $656.1 million thus far. Its $257.7 million domestic opening weekend set a new record. The Marvel release has done just as well overseas. In China, the film’s $369.7 million gross to date ranks third all-time.

An “Avengers” sequel to “Infinity War” is scheduled to be released in May of next year. (AP)
