Avengers: Infinity War was always destined to be a global hit and the numbers on Monday prove that this is the case. With a figure of $725.5 million USD globally, the film is as much of a success as expected. While it’s not been confirmed yet, the film is expected to have reached $800 million USD by today and by $1 billion USD by this coming weekend.
If the film reaches this target, then it will become the fastest ever movie to reach a billion, beating out Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Deadline reports that the figures far surpass other Marvel films. One aspect that is also playing in its favor in international markets is the May Day holiday. Outside of the US, the UK leads $45.5M and Korea ($43.3M). Following those two territories, there’s Mexico ($30.8M), Australia ($24.9M), Brazil ($23.7M), India ($22.5M), France ($20.6M), Germany ($18.6M), the Philippines ($14M) and Italy ($13.4M).
In related news, Kevin Feige said that he regrets keeping the title of the next Avengers film a secret.
