"Avengers: Endgame" Hits $2 Billion At Box Office In 11 Days

With such massive figures, Avengers: Endgame has bagged two more records at the box office. And they may not put up much of a fight.

But beating Avatar should be more hard, since the summer is clogged up with big releases, and James Cameron's sci-fi epic had the advantage of strong legs post-Christmas, which Endgame doesn't have. But $145.8 million was more than enough to ensure that Endgame remained at #1, even if it didn't match the $149 million second weekend of Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

It's also now the second-highest grossing movie of all time.

It's been 12 days since the global release of Avengers: Endgame, and the movie has already past the $2 billion mark at the worldwide box office. Avatar held the previous record, but that film required a whopping 47 days to earn $2 billion.

Graham says Mueller can testify about his conversation with Barr
Mueller responded that he was making no such claim - he was, instead, irritated by the press coverage of Barr's letter. Lawyers were going to be used to cross-examine the attorney general following questioning by members of Congress.

No fatalities after plane slides into river in Florida
The flights typically carry members of the military being rotated on or off assignments on the base, family members and VIPs. The plane crashed into a relatively shallow dredge in the river and the passenger cabin was not submerged.

Antisemite Farrakhan banned from Facebook
Immigration Minister David Coleman described those comments as "appalling" and said they "foment hatred and division". Facebook has announced that it is permanently banning a number of people from its platform for being "dangerous".

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 is until Endgame proved to be a completely different beast entirely when it grossed more than $US 1 billion in its opening weekend - the first movie in history to ever accomplish that. But it remains to be seen if Avengers: Endgame will have the legs to take it down. Honestly, it's still too early to tell. People would no doubt watch the movie over and over and over again right up to February or March. It has now generated $619 million at the domestic box office and $1.56 billion internationally. Next weekend, Detective Pikachu will be Endgame's latest challenger. And Avatar? Over 10 years, its $2.787 billion has grown to about $3.251 billion. I suggest we buckle up our seatbelts.

Rounding out box office charts is Lionsgate's "Long Shot", an R-rated romantic comedy starring Seth Rogen and Charlize Theron, which earned $3.3 million when it debuted in 23 territories.
