With the combined global take of $2.3 billion from those two movies, the Marvel Cinematic Universe is now almost a $20 billion franchise - with "Spider-Man: Far From Home" still coming this summer. After critics were overwhelmingly in support of the film heading into the weekend, the film's opening weekend crowd gave it an "A+" CinemaScore. That was certainly the case with Endgame, which brought in close to $859 million internationally, the most ever grossed in that market.
However, one has to keep in mind that most of the Bollywood movies are single language unlike any of the films on the list below.
Adding to his evaluation, Mr Adarsh wrote: "Avengers: Endgame writes H-I-S-T-O-R-Y". Friday 53.10 cr, Sat 51.40 cr, Sun 52.70 cr. Total: ₹ 104.50 cr Nett BOC. India biz. Gross BOC: Rs 187.14 cr.
"Avengers: Endgame" will be the last movie of the Avengers series and has a running time of more than three hours.

"2018: "Avengers: Infinity War" was Rs 31.30 crore/plus 2000 screens; 2019: "Avengers: Endgame" Rs 53.10 crore/2845 screens".
There's little doubt that Endgame would easily join the $US 2 billion dollar club by the end of its run.
Previous Marvel offerings have also dominated at the box office - Avengers: Infinity Warbrought in $630 million (£487m) on its opening weekend and became the fastest movie ever to hit $1 billion (£774,260,000), until now.
While Baahubali 2 (in all languages) is in a different league altogether, Avengers: Endgame has gone past the first three days numbers of a Bollywood film by a huge margin. Avengers: Endgame broke other records including opening weekends, opening weekends in April, opening weekend in Spring, top 3-day grosses, rated PG-13 opening weekends, widest releases, widest opening releases, widest PG-13 rated openings, and widest PG-13 rated releases.
