The "Titanic" has sunk again, all thanks to "Avengers: Endgame."
In two weeks, "Endgame" has earned $2.272 billion worldwide, moving past "Titanic's" haul of $2.187 billion to become the No. 2 grossing movie of all time.
Director James Cameron took to Twitter to congratulate the Marvel team, saying, "An iceberg sank the real Titanic. It took The Avengers to sink my Titanic."
Sinking "Titanic" at No. 2 is quite the feat.; the romantic drama held onto the spot for over two decades.
Now, the only movie ahead of "Endgame" at the global box office is Cameron's "Avatar" with the astonishing record of $2.788 billion.
On Saturday, "Endgame" became only the fifth film to join the $2 billion club (along with "Avatar," "Titanic," "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" and "Avengers: Infinity War"). It was the fastest movie to cross that mark.
Will "Endgame" go on to beat "Avatar"? Box office pundits are divided. The more interesting question is: Will Cameron congratulate the movie if it does?

She was the most luxurious liner of her era -- the "ship of dreams" -- which ultimately carried over 1,500 people to their death in the ice cold waters of the North Atlantic in the early hours of April 15, 1912.
