On the global stage, it's now sitting on $1.346 billion and kicked off that good fortune with the second biggest worldwide debut of all time with $382 million, bested only by The Fate of the Furious - the latter had the advantage of also opening in China and earning $185 million from the Asian market alone though. The film now stands alongside Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Titanic and Avatar as the only movies to hit this box office milestone! After starring in three solo movies and playing prominent roles in three other Marvel films, now seems like an appropriate time for Iron Man, or at least for Tony Stark, to slowly bow out of the spotlight.

Avengers: Infinity War is now playing everywhere. And that's not all -domestically, Infinity War is the fifth highest grossing film of all time with $656.1 million. It's now the third highest-grossing offshore release of all time behind Avatar ($2.027 billion), and Titanic ($1.528 billion). The movie opened to an impressive $199.3 million in China two weeks after its global debut and went on to become the third-biggest release ever in the country, with $369.7 million to date.

Infinity War is now the highest-grossing import film of 2018 and the third highest-grossing film in China this year, only behind local blockbusters such as Operation Red Sea and Detective Chinatown 2. It also holds the record for biggest domestic debut, raking in $257.7 million during its opening weekend. Infinity War ($369.7 million) is now the third highest-earning import film of all time in China, only behind The Fate of the Furious ($392.8 million) and Furious 7 ($390.9 million).

However, there are still some elements of Infinity War that fans are having a hard time getting over, like the fact that Thanos isn't even the most disliked character in the movie.
