The movie made a further $119.7 million from other international markets this weekend, boosting the movie’s global results to $760.2 million after just two weeks.
The film is now projected to the historic billion-dollar mark at the worldwide box office within the next weeks, which would make the seventh Marvel Cinematic Universe film to hit that mark along with Iron Man 3, Captain America: Civil War, Black Panther, and the first three Avengers films.
