'Avengers: Infinity War' Crosses $1 Billion Mark Faster Than Any Film in History

It only took 11 days for 'Avengers: Infinity War' to reach the $1 billion threshold.

Avengers: Infinity War is officially in the billion-dollar club.

In just 11 days, Marvel's latest film crossed the billion-dollar mark making it the fastest film in history to do so. Star Wars: The Force Awakens is now is second place since it reached $1 billion in 12 days. (It also beat the Star Wars film for highest opening of all time as well.)

With Infinity War's new feat, it is also Marvel's sixth film to make a billion dollars after The AvengersIron Man 3Avengers: Age of Ultron, Captain America: Civil War, and most recently, Black Panther. And that's all without tapping into the Chinese box office, which CNN describes as the "second biggest movie market in the world." Infinity War will debut in the country on May 11.

In the meantime, it got a major boost from Russia since its release there on Thursday. It opened with $4.9 million which is the highest debut of all time in Russia. It's faring well in other countries as well including in the U.K. with $53.7 million, Korea ($53.1M), Mexico ($39.9M), Brazil ($33.5M) and India ($30.1M), according to Deadline.

Infinity War, which was dubbed "the most ambitious crossover event in history," has been ten years in the making since 2008's Iron Man. In the past decade, Marvel Studios has been building up to the superheroes coming face-to-face with the Mad Titan, Thanos. But Infinity War is only the beginning of the story as the untitled Avengers 4 film is set to follow-up on the storyline next year.
