Avengers: Endgame beats Avatar in US, becoming 2nd biggest domestic movie of all-time; goes past $2.6 BN worldwide

Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Endgame has accomplished yet another feat, as it just became the 2nd biggest domestic film of all-time in the US, dethroning Avatar. The 22nd MCU movie earned about $29.4 million in its fourth weekend, in both US and Canada combined, thus pushing its overall total to around $770.8 million! It has gone past Avatar’s collection of $760 million that the James Cameron movie made, back in 2009-10.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens, however, still reigns at the top with $937 million, in North America alone. So it seems unlikely that Marvel’s superhero flick will manage to touch that number. But that’s a topic for another day.

Speaking of the overall global earnings then it’s another win-win situation for the ‘Earth’s Mightiest Heroes’, as Endgame has now crossed the mark of $2.6 billion worldwide. Yes, it’s still behind Avatar’s mammoth grand total of $2.79 billion figure but, the great news is that it’s narrowing down the gap pretty nicely.

The Joe & Anthony Russo directorial now needs only $190 million more to become the No.1 movie of the world in the box-office history.

Eventually, it will be a ‘home affair’ after all, as Disney now owns all these three franchises, namely the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Star Wars franchise, and also Avatar too—it completed the deal of buying the Fox studios, earlier this year.

So, all in all, Disney is the king of box-office, no matter which movie sits at the top. What matters the most is that all top three position holders are from the same company. What else can you ask for!

Avengers: Endgame, distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures, stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Brie Larson, Josh Brolin as Thanos, Karen Gillan, Don Cheadle, Bradley Cooper as the voice of Rocket, Paul Rudd, Benedict Cumberbatch, and Chris Pratt among many others.

The movie has now completed four weeks in theaters worldwide while still running steadily, despite getting competition from new weekly releases.
