“Avengers: Endgame” to become the second highest-grossing movie of all time, crossed $2 billion globally.
In its second weekend “Avengers: Endgame” easily pushed away new releases “Long Shot,” “The Intruder,” and “UglyDolls,” to win the domestic box office for a second consecutive week.
Disney’s huge moneymaker brought in an estimated $145.8 million, knocking off “Avengers: Infinity War” ($114.7 million) to become the second best performance for a movie in its second weekend in theaters (“Star Wars: The Force Awakens” is still king of second weekend with $149.2 million ). The movie’s domestic total is now at $619.7 million, making it the ninth-highest grossing all-time in North America.
Globally, the movie has now crossed the $2 billion mark with $2.188 billion, the fastest movie ever to accomplish the feat. Its international cume is at an astounding $1.6 million. “Endgame” has accomplished all of this in just 11 days in theaters worldwide (it took “Avatar” 47 days to become the fastest to $2 billion).
The movie is now the second highest-grossing movie of all time globally.
Friday “Endgame” had another $100 million globally, taking in $40.6 million domestically and $88.2 million internationally for a $128.8 global day. On Saturday, domestically the movie took in $61.4 million.
The movie’s sights are now set on taking down the all-time box office leaders: domestically it’s “The Force Awakens” with $936.6 million and worldwide it’s “Avatar” with $2.8 billion (not counting inflation for either).
Meanwhile, Sony’s “The Intruder” took in $11 million to land a distance second place at the domestic box office.
