Record-breaking movie directors The Russo Brothers recently sat down with the Los Angeles Times to talk about Avengers: Endgame and confirmed that Tom Hiddleston's Loki may still be alive and possibly in another universe.
Disney and Marvel's Avengers: Endgame has stormed into historic territory, earning US$2.19 billion (S$2.99 billion) worldwide in less than two weeks to become the No. 2 film of all time, industry watcher Exhibitor Relations reported Sunday (May 5).
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". Now, only Avatar ($2.8 billion) stands between Endgame and the top spot. That record is still held by Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which earned $149.2 million for its second weekend in theaters. But it remains to be seen if Avengers: Endgame will have the legs to take it down. This Marvel outing will be the first Hollywood film to enter Rs 300 crore club at the Indian box office. Internationally, the movie raked in another $282 million, taking the global total to $1.569 billion.

Unfortunately, debuting in third place is the romantic comedy The Long Shot, a movie that deserved a better release date that wasn't lost in the shuffle between Avengers: Endgame and Detective Pikachu.
This weekend's final new release, "UglyDolls", launched in fourth place well below expectations, stumbling with $8.5 million from 3,652 venues. Frankly, we probably give too much of a damn. The original Captain Marvel, Shazam!
In North America, "Avengers: Endgame" dipped 59% from its opening weekend.
