More than 90% of the value of all tickets sold in UK cinemas last weekend was for Avengers: Endgame.
Within five days it had become the fastest film to break the $1bn sales barrier worldwide.
But more significantly, it is the latest evidence that Walt Disney is now the world's biggest box-office player.
Of the 10 films with the biggest worldwide sales in their opening weekend, Disney has distributed five.
Variety magazine reported that Disney took one fifth of all global box office takings in 2018.
