Avengers: Endgame became the fastest film to cross the $2 billion mark.
While "Avengers: Endgame" dominated overseas, a handful of titles were able to benefit from counterprogramming against the superhero blockbuster.
But even if Endgame walks away with no Oscar nods at all, it will still always be remembered as one of the all-time biggest films at the box office, with the sequel crossing the $2 billion mark worldwide after only its second weekend in theaters.
The Avengers: Endgame needs to sustain a 58% drop or lower to beat Star Wars, but it is reported its second-weekend box office fell 59.2% giving Endgame a $145,804,000 gross to The Force Awaken's second-weekend record of $149.2 million. It recently became the second highest grossing movie of all times, surpassing James Cameron's movie Titanic. Its U.S. box office is already over $619 million, and it has another massive $1.569 billion from worldwide audiences, with its Chinese box office at a whopping $575 million. Avatar, which once held the record, took 47 days to reach $2 billion in ticket sales. So far, the three-hour runtime doesn't seem to be stopping anyone from seeing it again. The $45 million film earned only $8.5 million in its opening weekend, playing best to the 7-9 year-old demographic.
