In India, 'Avengers: Endgame' has not just outperformed every Hollywood movie - including 'The Jungle Book' which had made $38.8 million in its entire theatrical run in the country, but also breaking box office myths for desi filmmakers.
"Avengers: Endgame" crushed the competition at the box office once again last week in padding its almost $2.2 billion take, not only handily winning the period but blowing past "Titanic" to become the world's second highest-grossing film of all time - with the throne set in its sights.
Now, MCU fans are hoping that Endgame further goes and crushes another James Cameron-directorial titled Avatar, which is currently the highest-grossing movie, after the filmmaker said he hopes "we'll start getting Avenger fatigue here pretty soon". That puts "Endgame" ahead of "Titanic" ($1.528 billion), and behind only "Avatar" ($2.028 billion) at the global box office. It is one of only five films ever to reach $2 billion, joining its predecessor Avengers: Infinity War as the second Marvel Studios film on the list. With a total worldwide gross of $120.8 million, Avengers: Endgame has now passed Avatar to become the biggest IMAX global release ever.
Avengers: Endgame is now playing. After getting an Endgame bump to #2 last weekend, Captain Marvel fell back to number 5 with $4.3 million.

The Associated Press reported that Omaha Beach , who just turned 3 in April, would undergo surgery in Kentucky last week. Justify was trained by Bob Baffert , who also trained the previous Triple Crown victor , American Pharaoh, in 2015.
As for the rest of the box office, Avengers: Endgame kept all other movies from making much money.
That includes an estimated $146 million in North America.
In third was Lionsgate's romantic comedy Long Shot, at US$10 million.
If you need anymore evidence of Avengers: Endgame holding onto crowds, even the family film UglyDolls only rakes in $8.5 million. The voices of Kelly Clarkson, Nick Jonas, Wanda Sykes and Janelle Monae are featured. The coming weeks will see the release of Pokemon: Detective Pikachu, John Wick: Chapter 3, Aladdin and Godzilla: King of Monsters, all of which could deter repeat viewings of Endgame.
