Not only did “Avengers: Endgame” have the highest opening weekend in cinematic history, the film also had the highest follow-up weekend of all-time. The two back-to-back wins put “Avengers: Endgame” past the $2B mark globally, making it the fastest film to reach the milestone. That wasn’t the only record that Endgame broke this weekend; the film also bumped “Titanic” from second-place on the all-time highest-grossing film list at the worldwide box office.
Over the weekend, “Avengers: Endgame” made another $282M in overseas markets, raising its international total to over $1.57B. “Titanic” made $1.52B internationally, and the iconic love story dropped to third-place this week. The only film to beat both of them is “Avatar,” which made $2.02B in other markets. Endgame did very well in China specifically, where it made $575M, the highest-gross ever for a Hollywood film.
If you combine the domestic and international gross, the list stays the same. “Avatar” has the record with $2.8B globally, followed by “Avengers: Endgame” with $2.188B, and “Titanic” with $2.187B. Just remember that “Avengers: Endgame” has only been in theaters for two weeks at this point, so it seems destined to take the crown in every category.
Marvel’s repeated win put a stopper on this week’s new releases. on the domestic box office charts While adult-orientated films like “The Intruder” and “Long Shot” did moderately well this weekend, the animated-comedy “Uglydolls” struggled on its debut. The thriller “The Intruder” made $11M domestically, while “Long Shot” pulled in $10M. “Uglydolls,” which was hoping to jumpstart a film franchise for the toy line, only made $8.5M across 3,652 locations.
