Moviegoers headed out to theatres in droves for the second weekend in a row to see Avengers: Endgame.
And the Marvel Cinematic Universe just became even more powerful with Endgame earning the title of second-highest grossing film of all time with a staggering $2 billion at the box office, according to Variety.
The hit Disney flick has now grossed $2.188 billion globally in its 11-day run, with another $145 million at the domestic box office during its second weekend in theaters.
The second-weekend tally was the second biggest in history, just behind the $149.2 million earned by Star Wars: The Force Awakens in 2015.
Endgame has earned $620 million at the domestic box office in its short run, becoming the ninth biggest film in North America.
Internationally, the Avenger’s flick has earned $1.56 billion, with $575 million coming in from China alone.
The blockbuster movie reached a global box office of $1.915 billion by Friday, according to Deadline, and its current worldwide tally is $2.188 billion.
Endgame is now one of five films to surpass the $2 billion marker, joining Avengers: Infinity War ($2.048 billion), Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($2.068 billion), Titanic ($2.187 billion) and the highest grossing movie of all time worldwide, Avatar ($2.788 billion).
The film became the No. 2 highest grossing global movie of all time, having surpassed Jurassic World on Thursday and broke records to become the first film in history to surpass the $1 billion mark in just its opening weekend, raking in an estimated $1.2 billion.
With an estimated budget of $356 million, Endgame is one of the most expensive films ever made and saw the conclusion of the decade-long Infinity Saga – which documented Thanos’ plot to wipe out half of the universe’s living creatures.
