In just seven weeks since it’s release, the Marvel superhero mashup/collab/let’s-get-all-the-stars-in-there-somehow flick, Avengers: Infinity Wars has become the fourth highest grossing film ever made, after crawling over the $2bn mark sometime over the last few days (according to Mojo’s box-office calculator).
The film, which was directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, is now part of a select club that features James Cameron’s alien Pochahontas story, Avatar ($2.78bn) and his tale of navigational disaster The Titanic ($2.18bn), as well as J.J. Abrams Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($2.06bn).
However, unlike the rest of the films in the $2bn club, Infinity Wars was also released in the more competitive US Summer period which put it at somewhat of a disadvantage, as end-of-year releases traditionally perform better at the box-office. So you can only imagine what could have been for the star-studded feature.
So if you haven’t checked it out, maybe it’s about time you jump on that train.
