Well, well, it looks like there’s finally one record Avengers: Endgame couldn’t demolish. With a trifling $145.8 million—I’m kidding, that is so much money—the Marvel film now officially holds second-highest second weekend domestically of all time, behind Star Wars: The Force Awakens‘ $149 million. This news probably means…absolutely nothing to Disney (who just happen to own Star Wars, too) because, right, the other little tidbit out of this weekend is that Endgame is already the #2 global release of all time, sinking Titanic to third place and knocking at Avatar‘s $2.788 billion door just twelve days into its release.
Overseas, Endgame has hauled in an eye-popping $1.57 billion, bringing its global total to $2.18 billion. This marks the fastest by a mile that a film has crossed the $2 billion mark—it took Avatar 47 days—and just the fifth time a movie has made $2 billion, ever.
Meanwhile, the rest of the box office struggles to make a sizeable dent in the massive wake of Endgame. The best news came for The Intruder, Screen Gem’s thriller starring Dennis Quaid as a man who sells his home…and then refuses to leave. The film opened in second place to a solid $11 million on a reported $8 million budget.
Right behind The Intruder is Long Shot, debuting in third with $10 million. Directed by Jonathan Levine from a script by Dan Sterling and Oscar-nominee Liz Hannah, the rom-com stars Seth Rogen and Charlize Theron as a speech-writer and presidential hopeful who fall in love on the campaign trail.
STX’s first animated feature, UglyDolls, had an equally ugly weekend at the box office, nabbing $8.5 million in its debut.
