"Avengers: Endgame" continues to dominate at the box office and has become the second highest grossing movie of all time.

The Walt Disney Co estimates Sunday that the Marvel blockbuster has added $145.8 million from North American theatres and $282.2 million internationally in its second weekend in theatres bringing its global total to $2.2 billion. Unfortunately, it ended up falling short of the second weekend record set by Star Wars: The Force Awakens with $149.2 million.

It is now the second highest-grossing film of all time. Its U.S. box office is already over $619 million, and it has another massive $1.569 billion from global audiences, with its Chinese box office at a whopping $575 million.

The latest Marvel movie Avengers: Endgame has been smashing various records one after the other. Avengers: Endgame raked in Rs 100 crore in two days and at the end of its 10-day run in theatres, the film is expected to cross Rs 300 crore.

King Maha Vajiralongkorn crowned Rama X of Thailand
The crowning ritual was introduced from Europe to the Thai coronation ceremony during the reign of King Rama IV. During the ceremonies, the king gave alms to saffron-robed, barefoot monks.

The film has made $2.189 billion in 11 days of release, which is the fastest any film has made $2 billion.

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. It seems like Avengers: Endgame is just too much of a draw for audiences to see much of anything else. But even the draw of chart-topping musical artists like Kelly Clarkson, Joe Jonas, Bebe Rexha, Lizzo, Pitbull, and Blake Shelton wasn't enough to get people interested in the movie.

Also, 'Avatar' was playing on fewer screens than 'Avengers: Endgame', China being a key case in point.
