“EndGame” hasn’t slowed down so far. The film made $128 million globally on Friday, which puts its total at more than $1.9 billion worldwide.
The film, which stars Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man alongside a slew of other Marvel heroes, now sets its sight on having the highest-grossing second weekend in North American history.
The record for biggest second weekend belongs to “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” which made $149 million for its second weekend in 2015, according to Comscore (. )
Dergarabedian said the film “looks to attract more repeat business” as well as “newcomers who were waiting on the sidelines until now.”
“Avengers: Infinity War,” the prequel to “EndGame,” dropped 55% for its second weekend last April. If “EndGame” follows the same trajectory, it’ll nab the second week record with a roughly $160 million weekend in North America.
“EndGame” is already the 5th highest grossing film of all time.
