LOS ANGELES (AP) — “Avengers: Endgame” has crossed the billion mark at the global box office in record time and is leaving newcomers in its dust.
The Walt Disney Co. estimates Sunday that the Marvel blockbuster has added 45.8 million from North American theaters and 82.2 million internationally in its second weekend in theaters bringing its global total to .2 billion.
“Endgame” is one of 5 movies to ever reach that mark and, not accounting for inflation, is now the second biggest film of all time worldwide behind “Avatar’s” .8 billion. “Avatar” reached billion in 47 days of release compared with 11 for “Endgame.”
New films picked up scraps at the domestic box office, including “The Intruder,” with 1 million, “Long Shot,” with 0 million, and “Uglydolls” with .5 million.
