Avengers: Endgame Officially Crosses $2 Billion Worldwide

Avengers: Endgame has officially passed the $2 billion mark at the worldwide box office in its second weekend.

Avatar remains No. 1 on that list with $2.78 billion in global ticket sales. The movie has now crossed the milestone of United States dollars 2 billion and has become the second highest grossing movie of all times.

Rounding out box office charts is Lionsgate's "Long Shot", an R-rated romantic comedy starring Seth Rogen and Charlize Theron, which earned $3.3 million when it debuted in 23 territories. The gap is small enough that the final numbers could end up breaking that record, but we'll have to wait until Monday for that. However, it is still behind Avengers: Infinity War ($2.048 billion ) and Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($2.068 billion).

While "Avengers: Endgame" dominated overseas, a handful of titles were able to benefit from counterprogramming against the superhero blockbuster. Avatar held the previous record, but that film required a whopping 47 days to earn $2 billion. What's perhaps even more impressive though is that it's also sailed right past Titanic to become the second highest grossing film of all-time.

MCU's Avengers: Endgame released on around 2,845 screens in India.

As for the rest of the box office, Avengers: Endgame kept all other movies from making much money. The consensus reads, "Exciting, entertaining, and emotionally impactful, Avengers: Endgame does whatever it takes to deliver a satisfying finale to Marvel's epic Infinity Saga". After that, it's likely to get close to Avatar's earnings of $2.788 billion.

In fifth place, hanging strong in its ninth week out, was Disney's "Captain Marvel", at $4.3 million.
