In total, Endgame has made $620 million domestically and $1.569 billion internationally, bringing its worldwide box office total to $2.189 billion.

"Avengers: Endgame" is also officially the second-highest grossing film globally with $2.188 billion worldwide, passing "Titanic" (2.187 billion) in just 11 days.

The Marvel superhero film pushed past the $2 billion mark in its second week in movie theaters, Variety confirmed on Sunday (May 5).

The other movies to do so are Titanic, Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Avengers: Infinity War.

Finally, likely buoyed by being the last Marvel film on the ten-year plan that led to the big finale of Endgame, Disney's Captain Marvel jumped back into the top five with another $4.2 million to its total box office.

Not only is 'Avengers: Endgame' a direct sequel to 'Avengers: Infinity War', it's the culmination of the previous 20-plus titles in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), a blockbuster series of films that commenced with "Iron Man' in 2008". Avengers: Endgame raked in Rs 100 crore in two days and at the end of its 10-day run in theatres, the film is expected to cross Rs 300 crore. Despite being a distant second to Endgame, the thriller sill beat industry expectations of a $9 million opening.

Unfortunately, debuting in third place is the romantic comedy The Long Shot, a movie that deserved a better release date that wasn't lost in the shuffle between Avengers: Endgame and Detective Pikachu. Frankly, we probably give too much of a damn. But even the draw of chart-topping musical artists like Kelly Clarkson, Joe Jonas, Bebe Rexha, Lizzo, Pitbull, and Blake Shelton wasn't enough to get people interested in the movie.
