Following the insane USD $1.2 billion opening weekend of Avengers: Endgame, the movie broke another insane record. After Endgame’s second weekend, the film’s box office tally now stands at USD $2.193 billion, enough to put Endgame’s earnings over Infinity War, The Force Awakens, and Titanic to become the second-highest grossing film of all time worldwide.
After the second weekend, Endgame’s US box office earnings now stand at USD $621 million. Internationally, China is the biggest market with a USD $575 gross. As for the Philippines, the country still ranks among the top markets for Endgame, with a current box office take of USD $28.7 million. With this, Endgame is now the highest grossing film in the PH.
The film’s new record is amazing because Endgame has finally beaten the decade-long reign of Titanic as the second largest worldwide release. What’s even more impressive is that Endgame did so in under two weeks; for comparison, Titanic took much longer to reach the USD $2 billion mark.
Now the only question that remains is if Endgame can beat Avatar (another James Cameron film) to become the highest-grossing movie of all time. With it’s performance so far, it won’t be surprising if Endgame can earn the USD $600 million needed to surpass Avatar. Though this is far from guaranteed, especially as a couple of summer blockbusters (such as Detective Pikachu and John Wick Chapter 3) are poised to challenge Endgame in the box office.
