Avengers: Endgame crushed the global box office for a second straight week and hit $2.189 billion worldwide—putting it ahead of one James Cameron-directed movie and behind another for the highest-grossing movie ever, per the Hollywood Reporter. Specifically, Endgame is ahead of Titanic ($2.187 billion, adjusted for inflation) and behind only Avatar ($2.8 billion). Endgame also hit $2 billion faster than any rival, doing so in just 11 days, Variety reports. While Marvel ruled the roost, The Intruder bowed in second spot with $11 million domestically, followed by Long Shot ($10 million), UglyDolls ($8.5 million), and Captain Marvel ($4.3 million).
