The Marvel title beat newcomer Detective Pikachu, with Endgame earning $61.3 million stateside. The movie’s cumulative global box office is now $2.485 billion, with the superhero installment only second to James Cameron’s all-time earner, Avatar.

Domestically, Endgame has earned $724 million, passing Avengers: Infinity War ($679 million) and Black Panther ($700 million) to move up to the No. 3 all-time stateside spot, behind Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Avatar. The movie picked up an additional $102.3 million, internationally.

 

Legendary Entertainment and Warner Bros.’ Detective Pikachu still made a notable bow with $58 million in North American ticket sales in 4,202 theaters. Young men showed up in the biggest numbers, with males making up 56 percent of the audience, 57 percent of which were under 25.
