We’re only 15 days in and Avengers: Infinity War has already topped the $500 million mark at the North American box office.
This makes the Disney-Marvel’s superhero flick the second-fastest movie to achieve the $500 million milestone. after the 2015 Star Wars: The Force Awakens that hit the half-billion mark faster — in a remarkable 10 days. Infinity War snubbed second place from Star Wars: The Last Jedi that had held the second-fastest mark at 16 days.
That’s not the notch on Infinity War’s belt, having set the record for the biggest domestic opening weekend with $257.7 million (over the last weekend of April).
If the estimates prove right, Avengers: Infinity War will finish out the weekend strong with $546 million, making it eighth on the all-time domestic list.
