“Avengers: Endgame” is now the eighth-highest-grossing movie worldwide of all time. After just a week in theatres (it hit China last Wednesday), it’s already made $US1.5 billion globally. And it’s on its way to another huge weekend at the box office in the US.

Movie-ticket service Fandango announced Wednesday that 85% more repeat customers are seeing “Endgame” than they were “Avengers: Infinity War” at the same point last year.

“Endgame” shattered the domestic box-office opening-weekend record with $US356 million. How much will it dip in its upcoming second weekend?

“Infinity War” grossed $US258 million in its domestic opening weekend and dropped 55% in its second weekend with $US114 million. If “Endgame” drops 55%, it will still make over $US160 million.

“Star Wars: The Force Awakens” currently holds the record for the biggest second-weekend box office ever with $US149 million. It dropped just 40% in its second weekend.
