“Avengers: Infinity War” Passes $2 Billion Mark

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)

“Avengers: Infinity War” Reaches $1 Billion Mark

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.

“Avengers: Infinity War” Release Date Shift

You won’t have to wait as long to see Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Infinity War in theaters in North America.

Marvel announced on Twitter the third Avengers film will now be released on April 27 as opposed to its original planned May 4 release date. Marvel Studios made the announcement via a Twitter exchange with Iron Man star Robert Downey, Jr.

Marvel Studios first tweeted out about the film debuting on May 4, when Downey, Jr. chimed in asking to see it earlier. Marvel Studios accommodated him — and the many fans hoping to see the film as soon as possible. Of course, this was naturally a planned announcement transformed into a clever marketing stunt that used one of the stars of the MCU as a voice for the people wanting to watch Infinity War early.

This lines the North American release of the film up with its planned international debut. That new release date is a week after the Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson-starring Rampage adaptation. It also further separates Infinity War’s release from other big May tentpole films, which include Deadpool 2 and Solo: A Star Wars Story. (Source)

“Avengers: Infinity War” Director Hoping For “Darth Vader For A New Generation”

After making his debut in the post credits scene of The Avengers, we’re now just a few short months away from seeing Thanos take centre stage as he battles Earth’s Mightiest Heroes in Avengers: Infinity War. And, speaking to Empire Magazine, Joe Russo has been chatting about the Mad Titan, and what he and his brother Anthony are hoping to achieve with the villain:

“Darth Vader was the pre-eminent villain of my childhood, and we’re hoping to make a Darth Vader for a new generation,” said Russo. “We’re hoping he has that complexity to him, and that he strikes fear into the heart of the audience, but at the same time they go on a journey with him. Frankly, Avengers 3 is his movie.”

If there’s been one major criticism levied towards Marvel, it’s that the films’ villains haven’t always been up to par. Let’s hope that changes when Marvel unleashes the Mad Titan this May.

Avengers: Infinity War opens on April 27th in the UK and May 4th in North America. (Source)

Which “Avengers: Infinity War” Storyline is Anthony Russo Most Excited For?

Judging from the first trailer for Avengers: Infinity War, there is a metric-ton to be excited about. There is so much going on in the footage, that it’s hard to pick just one moment that stands out. Well, what about the creators of the film? What’s their favorite part of the movie? It turns out, director Anthony Russo has his pick. Speaking to Comicbook.com, the Avengers: Infinity War co-director reveals that he is on team Thor:

“I’m going to pick Thor because Thor, we’re picking up his story from the end of Thor: Ragnarok and at the end of that film as any fan would know his home planet of Asgard is destroyed, and so the character is in new territory so to speak, because his past has been torn away from him to a degree.”

Anthony also spoke about Thor’s evolution in the movie, stating that: “I think it’s very similar to Captain America’s situation when we picked up his story in Winter Solider when Joe and I came on to do our first movie for Marvel. Cap was in a place where we were very much catching him up in the modern world and seeing what that meant to him, and figuring out how you move a character that far forward and that far away from where they started back during the 40s, so I think in Thor we have similar opportunities with that character in this movie is that he’s going through a radical transformation and he’s moving forward in a way where he can never go back, and that’s always a fun place to be with a character as a storyteller.”
