The latest Marvel movie has reached the $2 billion mark in only its second weekend at the box office.
With a $2.188 billion global take, Endgame is now the second highest grossing movie of all time surpassing Titanic in just 11 days. It took “Avatar,” the previous record-holder for quickest film to $2 billion, 47 days to reach that benchmark.
The epic finale to the current phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe got off to a record-breaking start last weekend when it debuted with a stunning $1.2 billion worldwide, including $357 million in North America.
Anthony and Joe Russo returned to direct “Avengers: Endgame,” the 22nd installment in the MCU. It picks up directly following “Avengers: Infinity War,” another box office behemoth that left Earth’s Mightiest Heroes scrambling after Thanos (Josh Brolin) eliminated half of life in the universe.
