Avengers: Endgame has beaten Titanic to become the second highest grossing film of all time, with a whopping $2.189 billion (£1.666 billion).

The world loves it 3000.

Marvels beloved new flick has ended James Camerons impressive reign over the top two spots, passing Titanic, which collected $2.187 billion (£1.664 billion) and standing just behind Avatar, which brought in $2.8 billion (£2.1 billion), according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The epic conclusion to the 22-film Infinity Saga has been assembling records all over the shop, earning the highest-grossing week of all-time with $562 million (£427 million) at the global box office from Monday to Thursday.

Its just one of five films to pass the $2 billion mark, alongside Star Wars: The Force Awakens and, of course, Avengers: Infinity War.

The Marvel powerhouse is absolutely smashing the competition out of the park and has been setting lots of records in a short space of time.
