‘Avengers: Endgame’ assembles second-biggest second weekend ever
Disney’s “Avengers: Endgame” is continuing its unprecedented box office run, assembling another $145 million at the domestic box office during its second weekend in theaters.
“Avengers: Endgame” now stands as the second-biggest movie of all time with $2.188 billion worldwide. The Marvel juggernaut became the fastest film to gross $2 billion globally, reaching that benchmark in just 11 days. It took “Avatar,” the previous record-holder for fastest film to $2 billion, 47 days to reach that milestone.
“Avengers: Endgame” has now generated $619 million at the domestic box office and $1.56 billion internationally. In North America, “Avengers: Endgame” dipped 59% from its opening weekend. That wasn’t enough to secure the biggest second weekend of all time, a record still held by “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” with $149 million. However, it passed “Avengers: Infinity War” ($114 million) to hold the second-biggest weekend ever. Only six films have ever surpassed $100 million in their second weekends.
