Box Office Record: “Avengers: Infinity War” Breaks $500 Mil, Becomes 3rd Marvel Movie in All Time Top 10


All hail “Avengers: Infinity War.” Last night the blockbuster comic book movie broke the $500 million mark in the US after just two weeks.

“Infinity War” is now the third Marvel movie in the all time top 10. The others are “Black Panther” and the original 2012 “Avengers” debut.

The balance of the top 10 include four movies associated with Steven Spielberg or George Lucas, plus “The Dark Knight,” “Titanic” and “Avatar.”

The last two movies on the top 500, by the way, are “Wayne’s World” and “The Bourne Identity.”
