Avengers: Endgame finally hit theaters last week, and it’s already broken numerous box office records and made more money than anyone originally predicted. The Marvel Cinematic Universe film has already earned a whopping $514,531,638 domestically and $1,914,531,638 worldwide, which means it could easily cross the $2 billion mark before the weekend is done.
According to Box Office Mojo, Avengers: Endgame is already the 5th highest grossest film worldwide, behind the only four movies to hit the $2 billion milestone during their time in theaters. Currently, the films to beat to the top spot are Avengers: Infinity War (domestic: $678,815,482, worldwide: $2,048,359,754), Star Wars: The Force Awakens (domestic: $936,662,225, worldwide: $2,068,223,624), Titanic (domestic: $659,363,944, worldwide: $2,187,463,944), and Avatar (domestic: $760,507,625, worldwide: $2,787,965,087). The movie is also ranked 12th domestically, but it's quickly climbing the ranks.
Basically, all Avengers: Endgame needs to earn its spot as the top grossing film of all time is $874.5 million. Considering its current trajectory, the film has a good chance of redefining the record and becoming the first film to ever cross $3 billion.
If/When Avengers: Endgame does hit the $2 billion mark this weekend, it will have done so in record time. It took Avatar 47 days to reach the amount, Avengers: Infinity War took 48 days, Star Wars: The Force Awakens took 54 days, and Titanic took 5,233 days.
Since its release last week, Avengers: Endgame has broken an impressive amount of records. It sold the most pre-sale/advanced tickets in history, had the biggest Thursday preview, the biggest opening weekend domestically and worldwide, the widest release, and more.
