It looks like ” Avengers: Endgame ” is not done breaking box office records.

The Disney and Marvel film had the biggest global opening in film history with an unprecedented $1.2 billion opening last weekend. That included a record $357 million opening weekend in North America.

” Endgame ” hasn’t slowed down so far. The film made $128 million globally on Friday, which puts its total at more than $1.9 billion worldwide.

The film, which stars Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man alongside a slew of other Marvel heroes, now sets its sight on having the highest-grossing second weekend in North American history.

The record for biggest second weekend belongs to ” Star Wars: The Force Awakens, ” which made $149 million for its second weekend in 2015, according to Comscore .

” If anyone is wondering how you follow up the biggest opening weekend in box office history, it’s with the biggest second weekend ever recorded, a feat that is within reach, ” Paul Dergarabedian , senior media analyst at Comscore , told CNN Business.

Dergarabedian said the film ” looks to attract more repeat business ” as well as ” newcomers who were waiting on the sidelines until now. ”

” Avengers: Infinity War, ” the prequel to ” Endgame, ” dropped 55% for its second weekend last April. If ” Endgame ” follows the same trajectory, it’ll nab the second week record with a roughly $160 million weekend in North America.

” Endgame ” is already the 5th highest grossing film of all time.
