The Middletown Press (Middletown, CT) - - Kickoff -

NEW YORK — The su­per­sized su­per­hero hit “Avengers: In­fin­ity War” has crossed $2 bil­lion in world­wide ticket sales, be­com­ing only the fourth film to reach that rar­i­fied box-of­fice mile­stone.

The Walt Dis­ney Co. an­nounced Tues­day 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 U.S. 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.
