‘Avengers: Infinity War’ crosses $2 billion in box office

So can Infinity War catch Force Awakens? In fact, the Infinity War box office haul is so big that it just hit $2 billion worldwide. Stateside, it's still going strong, taking 5th place in weekend 7 with $7.2M for a running total of $656.1M, the fifth highest grossing title of all time through June 11.

Its $257.7 million domestic opening weekend set a new record. In China, the film's US$369.7 million gross to date ranks third all-time.
