Of Infinity War's $2 billion-plus worldwide total, $1.346 billion came from overseas sales, which even contains boosts from the normally Marvel-resistant movie market of China, where it made an astounding (for China, ) $369.7 million, making it the country's third-biggest box office haul.

"Infinity War" now ranks as the fifth highest-grossing film in the USA and Canada with $656.1 million thus far.

Internationally, it is the third-highest grossing release ever with $1.346 billion, and its combined domestic and global debuts set a record of $640.5 million.
