HOLLYWOOD—For the second consecutive weekend, “Avengers: Endgame” dominated the box-office in an impressive way. It earned a little over $145 million, which is a little over a 50 percent drop from the previous weekend. On a domestic scale the film has earned $620 million. On a global scale, “Endgame” has amounted $2.2 billion, and has now become the largest grossing movie of all time, toppling “Titanic.”
In a distant second place was the suspense thriller, “The Intruder” starring Michael Ealy, Megan Good and Dennis Quaid with$11 million. Not bad, not great, but considering everyone was still checking out the final chapter in the “Avengers” universe, it’s impressive. Landing in third place was the comedy “Long Shot” starring Charlize Theron and Seth Rogen with $10 million.
The biggest surprise at the box-office was the animated flick “Ugly Dolls” which didn’t bring out audiences with a disappointing $8.5 million during opening weekend to land in fourth place. Considering there hasn’t been much in terms of animation at the multiplex, I though the movie would have a bigger draw with audiences. Rounding out the top five was the superhero flick “Captain Marvel” with $4.2 million. “Captain Marvel” has since earned $420 million at the domestic box-office since its release in March.
Expect “Avengers: Endgame” to continue its domination at the box-office with no major releases capable of dethroning the juggernaut. We have the comedy, “The Hustle” starring Anne Hathaway and Rebel Wilson, while Ryan Reynolds appears as the popular character Pikachu in “Pokemon Detective Pikachu.”
