After the success of Ryan Coogler’s film Black Panther in February, the Russo Brothers topped it off by bringing in the most anticipated movie of 2018: Avengers: Infinity War. This film made history and, in the process, broke the hearts and minds of movie-goers and comic book fans. After only a bit over one week after crashing into the big screen, it hit the $1 billion mark. Now, with a month and a half of being in theaters around the globe, the third Avengers film continues to break more records.
As of Monday, Avengers: Infinity War enters the list of highest-grossing films of all time by surpassing the $2 billion mark, taking fourth place behind James Cameron’s Avatar and Titanic as well as J.J. Abrams’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens. (These four are the only films to have earned over $2 billion in theaters.)
Can the currently-untitled fourth Avengers film break this record next year? Here’s to hoping! Which moment of the film was your favorite? Which one was most saddening for you? What did you think of the film overall? Let us know!
Also, if you have not yet seen the movie or need a recap on the film and its Easter Eggs, I wrote a spoiler-filled review during its premiere weekend.
