Avengers: Endgame Beats Titanic With $2.2 Billion At Box Office, Now Only Trails Avatar
The enormous success of Marvel Studios films at the box office continues, and its latest, Avengers: Endgame, is moving fast and breaking records. After a second weekend at No. 1, the superhero movie has now made $2.227 billion worldwide after just 13 days. Few movies have ever topped the $2 billion mark–as of now, only one movie has ever made more money than the final Avengers outing.
Over its second weekend of release, Endgame passed James Cameron’s Titanic ($2.187 billion), which was released in 1997, to become the No. 2 highest-grossing movie in history worldwide. It only trails another Cameron movie, 2009’s Avatar, which has made $2.78 billion globally.
Endgame made a further $145.8 million in the United States and Canada this weekend and $282.2 million from international markets to reach the new heights, according to EW.
The continued success of Endgame is no surprise. It opened last weekend to a record $1.2 billion worldwide. It’s made $2.187 billion now worldwide after just 11 days, a new record.
Endgame is now just the fifth movie to ever pass $2 billion worldwide. It joins Avengers: Infinity War ($2.048 billion), Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($2.068 billion), Titanic ($2.187 billion), and Avatar ($2.788 billion).
The movie needs to make around $580 million more to catch Avatar. Keep checking back with GameSpot for the latest on Endgame’s box office performance.
With Endgame coming up on its two-week mark in theaters, Marvel and Sony have released the trailer for the next MCU movie: Spider-Man: Far From Home. This movie will mark the end of Phase 3, and it explicitly deals with some of the major developments from Endgame. As such, it starts out with a spoiler warning where Tom Holland advises viewers to skip the trailer if they haven’t yet seen Endgame. If you’ve seen the trailer, be sure to give our trailer breakdown a look.

Whether that happens remains to be seen, but Disney’s acquisition of 21st Century Fox means the X-Men and co. in the MCU is something we could see one day.
