Trivia: "Avengers: Infinity War" holds several prestigious box-office records. Among others, it has the highest ever domestic opening weekend (at $257.6 million), the highest worldwide gross for a comic-book movie (at just over $2 billion as of 6/12/18), and is the fastest movie to gross $1 billion globally, reaching the number in just 11 days of release. It is also the only film ever released during the Summer movie season to hit $2 billion globally, and one of only four movies to ever reach the $2 billion mark. (The three others were holiday releases).
Trivia: Directors Joe and Anthony Russo like to put in nods to their previous works in their MCU films. In this movie, a man closely resembling Tobias Funke in his "Blue Man Group" makeup (from the series "Arrested Development") is briefly visible inside of one of the Collector's cages behind Gamora for a brief instant. It's hard to spot, but he's there.
Trivia: With the release of this film, Robert Downey Jr., who played Sherlock Holmes in a 2009 feature film and its 2011 sequel, has worked with two Watsons and a fellow Holmes in the MCU. His "Iron Man 3" co-star Ben Kingsley portrayed Watson in the comedy film "Without a Clue." His "Captain America: Civil War" co-star Martin Freeman portrays Watson alongside Benedict Cumberbatch's Holmes in the BBC series "Sherlock." And Downey stars alongside Cumberbatch in this film.
Trivia: Doctor Strange learns of the coming of Thanos after Hulk/Bruce Banner crash lands into the Sanctum Sanctorum and informs Strange of the looming threat. This is taken straight from the "Infinity Gauntlet" storyline, though there it is Silver Surfer that warns Doctor Strange.
