To little surprise, Marvel‘s Avengers: Endgame has maintained its number one position at the box office, both domestic and global. However, breaking yet another huge record, the fourth installment of the Avengers has become one of only five movies — including AvatarTitanicStar Wars: The Force Awakens, and Marvel’s very own Avengers: Infinity War — ever to reach the $2 billion USD mark, as well as being the fastest movie to get there, raking in a total of $2.189 billion USD after its second weekend. Avatar, who previously held the record, took a much longer 47 days to reach $2 billion USD.

UPDATED STORY (April 29 2019): With the opening weekend having come and gone, Marvel‘s Avengers: Endgame has expectedly broken a few new records with ease. The superhero mega blockbuster started off with breaking the Thursday preview box office records, hitting $60 million USD on just Thursday alone, breaking the previous record of $57 million held by Star Wars: The Force Awakens back in 2015.

From there, Endgame continued its box office spree to become the fastest movie to reach $100 million, taking only 17 hours to accomplish the feat. The previous record was also held by The Force Awakens, which took 21 hours to reach the $100 million USD mark. Some commentators noted that it may be due to the fact that schools are now off on Spring break, meaning younger fans can make earlier show times instead of having to spend the day at school first.

With $100 million USD amassed in the first 17 hours of its release, Marvel’s latest installment went on to take the throne for the highest opening day of all time, finishing off the 24 hours with $156.7 million USD at the domestic box office, once again breaking another record previously held by Star Wars: The Force Awakens with a distant $119 million USD on opening day.

With all the above records broken, it comes as no surprise — though it did break previous estimations of $900 million USD — that Avengers: Endgame became the first movie ever to surpass the $1 billion USD mark on opening weekend alone. An announcement revealed on Sunday morning that the movie had already raked in $1.2 billion USD, only five days into its release, while Infinity War took 11 days to accomplish the same feat.
