Avengers: Infinity War is on the path to becoming the highest-grossing superhero film of all time.
Deadline reports Marvel's latest film passed the $900 million mark at the global box office, landing Thursday at $905.1 mill. With today (Friday, May 4) being just its ninth days in theaters (count began Thursday, April 26), Infinity War is projected to pass the $1 billion dollar mark either later today or tomorrow. That speed makes it the fastest film ever to make this much money, a record previously set in 12 days by 2015's Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which went on to become the No. 3 earner of all time at $2.07 billion. (2012's The Avengers is No. 5 with $1.5; Age of Ultron, No. 7 with $1.4 mill.)
The latest numbers come with a boost from Russia, where the film premiered on Thursday, May 3. It opened with $4.9 million, making it the highest debut of all time in the country. As for the other nations across the world, Infinity War is doing pretty well. In the U.K., it's earned $53.7 million. Korea is in second place with $53.1 mill, followed by Mexico ($39.9M), Brazil ($33.5M) and India ($30.1M). The film is still slated to premiere in China next week as well.
With the latest box office numbers, the third Avengers tops superhero films including Spider-Man 3, Spider-Man: Homecoming, Batman v Superman, and Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2. It has yet to top Black Panther's $1.3 billion global earnings.
