'Avengers Endgame' nears global record with over $2 billion

Mysterio in'Spider-Man Homecoming

The only movie left to conquer is Avatar, which has a world wide box office of $2.788 billion.

Also, 'Avatar' was playing on fewer screens than 'Avengers: Endgame', China being a key case in point.

The Force Awakens ($US 2 billion) failed to outdo both Titanic and Avatar at the global box office, most of us wondered if those records would ever be broken in the near future.

One of those characters was the Asgardian God of mischief Loki played by Tom Hiddleston who fans saw meet his end in last year's Avengers: Infinity War at the hands of the mad Titan Thanos played by Josh Brolin.

Disney's "Avengers: Endgame" continues its unprecedented box office run, assembling another $145 million at the domestic box office during its second weekend in theaters.

Endgame is now just the fifth movie to ever pass $2 billion worldwide. Marvel Cinematic Universe's 22nd release has become the highest grossing Hollywood movie in India so far. 2 box office champ of all time.

In North America, "Avengers: Endgame" dipped 59% from its opening weekend. This weekend, the superhero blockbuster raked in another $282.2 million from 55 worldwide markets. Other top territories include the United Kingdom ($89.9 million) and Korea ($82.1 million).

While "Avengers: Endgame" continues to be the de facto choice among moviegoers, a number of fearless studios opened new movies to mixed results.

Trailing Avengers by several light years, rival studios still managed to place new films in the next three box-office spots. But even the draw of chart-topping musical artists like Kelly Clarkson, Joe Jonas, Bebe Rexha, Lizzo, Pitbull, and Blake Shelton wasn't enough to get people interested in the movie. Disney and Marvel Studios certainly seem to think so, as the companies are apparently planning a major push for Endgame ahead of the 2019-2020 awards circuit. And again, it's only been in theaters for two weekends, and is extremely well-liked on top of that.
