Box Office: ‘Avengers: Endgame’ Passes ‘Titanic’ Globally With $2.2B


Avengers: Endgame is now the second-highest-grossing movie of all time with $2.189 billion.

It has surpassed James Cameron’s Titanic (1997), which earned $2.187 billion (unadjusted for inflation). Endgame achieved the remarkable feat after collecting another $145.8 million domestically and $282.2 million overseas in its second weekend.

The top-grossing movie of all time is Cameron’s Avatar (2009), with $2.8 billion at the global box office.

Heading into the weekend, the Avengers installment earned the highest-grossing week of all-time, collecting an astounding $562 million at the global box office from Monday to Thursday. Endgame is one of only five films to pass the $2 billion mark, joining fellow Disney titles Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015) and Avengers: Infinity War (2018). It reached the threshold in record time, in only its eleventh day of release.

Endgame has hit the $620 million mark in North America, becoming the ninth all-time highest earner. While it had a strong second weekend at the domestic box office, it did not reach the No. 1 spot. With its $145.8 million in stateside sales, Endgame trailed The Force Awakens, which earned $149.2 million stateside in its second week of release.

Overseas, Endgame is now the second-highest-grossing release of all time with $1.57 billion at the international box office, second only to Avatar ($2 billion). Endgame’s top grossing international markets are China ($575.8 million), the U.K. ($89.9 million), Korea ($82.1 million), Mexico ($61.6 million) and Brazil ($56.3 million).

After a record-breaking opening, Endgame dropped 55 percent from last weekend. This hold is a stronger one than other Marvel titles, including Avengers: Infinity War (61 percent) and Captain America: Civil War (59 percent).
