​'Avengers: Infinity War' Makes $1 Billion In 11 Days

Avengers: Infinity War has made a whopping $1 billion (£738 million) in just 11 days, crossing the milestone faster than any movie in film history. Not bad, eh?

According to CNN, in the last 11 days the film has made more than Wonder Woman, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Guardians of the Galaxy, X-Men: Days of Future Past and Justice League combined - so it's done pretty well, then.

Reaching that billion-dollar landmark so quickly is hardly surprising, really, given that it already smashed the record for the biggest weekend opening - having taken an estimated $630m (£460m) at the worldwide box office, according to Disney.

It got was off to a great start, finishing the first day of screenings with a massive $106m (£77m) - at the time sitting behind only Star Wars: The Force Awakens in the all-time list.

Obviously this makes it the biggest opening figures for a Marvel release by some distance.

And it seems Marvel president Kevin Feige has also been pretty overwhelmed by the amazing response, having penned a letter to fans of the franchise to thank them for their support.

"Thank you for embracing these characters and stories since we kicked off the MCU ten years ago. This past weekend was a result beyond our wildest dreams.

"On behalf of everyone here at Marvel Studios, we thank you for being the best fans in the universe and making Avengers: Infinity War the biggest opening weekend of all time."

His letter is a moving tribute to all the people involved in the success of the film (and the series), with fans flocking to see just what happens in the highly-anticipated gathering of Black Panther, Iron Man and the rest of the gang as they team up with the Guardians of the Galaxy to take on the universe-conquering Thanos.

If you've not seen it yet, what the hell are you waiting for?
