'Avengers: Endgame' Has Now Grossed More Than 'Titanic'

This weekend, Avengers: Endgame added $145.8 million domestically and $282.2 million internationally, for a global weekend of $428 million.

In Hollywood's box office war, 'Avengers: Endgame' has turned out to be a game-changer as it gallops its way to the $2 billion mark, raising the million dollar question whether it will surpass the $2.78 billion benchmark set by 'Avatar' a decade ago. And with this milestone unlocked, the superhero flick has left a few iconic films behind in the race to become one of the top grossers. With a total worldwide gross of $120.8 million, Avengers: Endgame has now passed Avatar to become the biggest IMAX global release ever. He had said in April 2018, "Not that I don't love the movies". Avatar previously held the record after meeting the $2 million mark after 47 days. However, there is no doubt in my mind that the latest numbers (which I estimate will be released by the end of tomorrow) will reveal Endgame as the highest grossing film in the country.

It edged past the previous No. 2 film, Titanic, which has worldwide receipts of $2.187 billion, Box Office Mojo reported.

The most recent attack was the 14 February Pulwama terror attack which killed 40 CRPF personnel. We expect all countries to uphold these obligations", Ortagus said.

Sony's psychological thriller The Intruder came in second, at US$11 million. It still performed a little further above expectations, but we'll see how it fares as the blockbuster season gets more competitive. That brings Marvel Studios' first release of the year up to $420 million.

Coming in third is Lionsgate's Long Shot. Frankly, we probably give too much of a damn. The voices of Kelly Clarkson, Nick Jonas, Wanda Sykes and Janelle Monae are featured. Some audiences seem to be playing catch-up either before or after seeing Avengers: Endgame, and it's helping to give the movie even more staying power than it otherwise might have had.

In North America, "Avengers: Endgame" dipped 59% from its opening weekend.
