It speaks volumes about the marketing campaign that Marvel waged for this movie and it validates their decision to move Infinity War's release up a week. But as the marketing for "Infinity War" progressed, it became increasingly clear that Hawkeye will not play a part in the Avengers' initial bout against Thanos. Its domestic and worldwide debuts over the April 27 weekend combined for a record-shattering global opening of $640.5M even without China. It reached the milestone one day earlier than "Star Wars: The Force Awakens".

Chris Evans and a cast of superheroes, ranks fourth on the all-time, worldwide list of top grossing movies.

‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Becomes Fourth Pic To Cross $2 Billion Global Mark

After months of speculation, it turned out that Jeremy Renner indeed wasn't a part of Avengers: Infinity War. Before the end of the eighth weekend, Infinity War is expected to dethrone Titanic and emerge as the fourth biggest domestic grosser of all time. Its $257.7 million domestic opening weekend set a new record. It's the only the tenth film in China's history to earn more than 2 billion yuan in total and just the third import film to do so. Infinity War ($369.7 million) is now the third highest-earning import film of all time in China, only behind The Fate of the Furious ($392.8 million) and Furious 7 ($390.9 million). James Cameron is still, after all these years, king of the world. The actor spoke to USA Today in a recent interview in which he teased what fans can expect from next year's Avengers 4 and addressed some of the backlash his absence from Infinity War had inspired. Infinity War was a top performer in China, opening to the sweet tune of a reported $200 million, as well as in the United Kingdom, South Korea, Brazil, Mexico, and Australia, among others.

The movie, which stars Robert Downey Jr, Scarlett Johansson, and Benedict Cumberbatch, among many others, is now the third consecutive Avengers movie to break the $1 billion barrier.
