Barely 12 days in theaters worldwide, ‘Avengers: Endgame’ has surpassed the 21-year-old global box office record of $2.128 billion held by ‘Titanic.’
According to box office reports, the Marvel flick has become the second-highest grossing film in the world, with an estimated $2.189 billion.
This record was cemented by the $619.7 million it has grossed domestically, which also eclipsed the $600.8 million ‘Titanic’ grossed in its initial theatrical run after opening in December 1997.
The historical-romantic epic ‘Titanic’ also grossed an additional $58.6 million in re-releases in 2012 and 2017 which was noted by box office sales records.
Reports also show that ‘Avengers’ has rapidly become one of the highest grossing films ever in China, with an astonishing $545.8 million since it opened there on April 24.
The movie broke every possible box office record when it debuted with $1.22 billion worldwide, including $357 million domestically.
The film has since eased off that blistering pace in the US and Canada, however, earning an estimated $145.8 million over its second weekend.
This figures fell a little short and could not quite pass the $149.2 million second weekend record set by ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ over the Christmas holiday in 2015.
When factoring in ticket price inflation, Marvel’s ‘Avengers: Endgame’ still has some ground to cover.
However, fans worldwide are hoping the movie breaks ‘Avatar’s box office records of $2.788 which it made from December 2009 through February 2010.
