The Marvel superheroes are seemingly unstoppable. In just three weeks, “Avengers: Infinity War” has become the world’s fifth biggest movie of all time, grossing $1.6 billion globally.

Joe and Anthony Russo’s movie enters the global top five, still led by James Cameron’s “Avatar” — the world’s biggest movie of all time with over $2.7 billion at the box office. “Titanic”, “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” and “Jurassic World” take second, third and fourth places with $2.187 billion, $2.068 billion and $1.671 billion respectively.

“Avengers: Infinity War” may not have finished breaking records just yet, and could still join the select list of movies that manage to gross more than $2 billion worldwide. After all, the superheroes broke the billion-dollar mark in just 11 days. Indeed, “Avatar” took 19 days to break a billion. Previous record holder “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” took 12 days to make $1 billion, with “Jurassic World” just behind, grossing over $1 billion in 13 days. JB
