Avengers: Endgame–More Popular than Titanic

Disney-Marvel’s Avengers: Endgame is now ahead of James Cameron’s Titanic, occupying the fifth-highest domestic box office position in history.

“Avengers: Endgame” performed the feat on Thursday, its 14th day of release, and Cameron congratulate the film on its achievement earlier this week.

Claiming $660.4 million, the superhero saga trails only four titles on the all-time domestic chart: “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” at $936 million, Cameron’s “Avatar” at $760 million, “Black Panther” at $700 million and “Avengers: Infinity War” at $679 million. “Titanic” totaled $659 million domestically, winning the box office title for a record 15 consecutive weekends starting in December 1997.

“Avengers: Endgame,” which took in $147 million domestically in its sophomore frame, could generate another $60 million to $80 million this weekend while facing competition from the launch of “Pokémon Detective Pikachu.” “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” has the record for top third weekend, with $90 million domestically, followed by “Avatar” at $68 million and “Black Panther” at $66 million.
