“Avengers: Endgame” is breaking more records.
The movie continued its global domination at the box office in a second week victory lap that saw the blockbuster cross the $2 billion mark in record time. Plus, it’s now unseated “Titanic” as the second highest-grossing film ever worldwide.
The Walt Disney Company estimates that “Endgame” added $145.8 million from North American theaters and $282.2 million internationally bringing its global total to $2.2 billion.
“Endgame” is one of five movies to ever reach that threshold and, not accounting for inflation, is now second worldwide only to “Avatar’s” $2.8 billion.
It took “Avatar” 47 days to reach $2 billion. But for “Endgame” it only took 11 days. But it should be noted, the theatrical landscape is different now than it was in 2009, especially in China. And that could be a big factor in Endgame’s success.
