  • Avengers Endgame collections stand at $2.486 billion internationally, after its third week in theatres.
  • The movie needs to make $2.79 billion worldwide to become the top-grossing movie of all time.
  • The movie is listed among the top 10 domestic earners of all times in India.
Marvel Cinematic Universe and Walt Disney's "Avengers: Endgame" is set to break all the records of all the global movies. Its collections stand at $2.486 billion, after its third week in theatres.

It is already the second highest grossing film of all time, right behind James Cameron’s Avatar that earned $2.788 billion. But, taking this coveted spot might get a bit tougher as two big movies, Keanu Reeves’ “JohnWick: Chapter 3- Parabellum” and Disney’s “Aladdin” are releasing soon. Endgame needs to fetch $304 million more to become the top-grossing movie of all time.

This weekend, the last part of Avengers series has already fought off competition from "Pokémon: Detective Pikachu", sticking to its top spot in North American theatres. It was able to make $27.4 million on Saturday, $6.9 million more than Pikachu ($20.5 million). People are thronging the theatres in spite of the fact that movie spoilers are all over the internet, after a ban was lifted.

Global success

The movie owes much of its success to robust international collections, thanks to its Asian fanbase. It saw the biggest opening ever in the Middle Kingdom (China) with record-breaking earnings of $107.2 million.

The movie also hit the ₹4 billion mark in just 10 days in India. The concluding film in the decade long journey of Avengers has earned over $46.6 million by the end of the twelfth day in India, according to media reports.

Endgame is listed among the top 10 domestic earners of all time in India. It is now close to taking over the records set that Bollywood painstakingly set, with by Baahubali 2 and Dangal; to become the country’s highest grossing film.
