Avengers: Endgame broke other records including opening weekends, opening weekends in April, opening weekend in Spring, top 3-day grosses, rated PG-13 opening weekends, widest releases, widest opening releases, widest PG-13 rated openings, and widest PG-13 rated releases.
The picture, the latest installment from Disney'sMarvel studio, caps a 22-movie storyline that began with "Iron Man" in 2008.
With this kind of juice, there's every reason to believe "Endgame" will challenge the $2.07 billion worldwide gross of "The Force Awakens", set in 2015.
Yesterday, we reported that Avengers:Endgame had an fantastic first Friday after the film's debut everywhere on Wednesday. This includes China, where Endgame made $330.5 million over its opening weekend to set a new all-time record for biggest opening. This also means the film beat out Infinity War ($641 million) for biggest single weekend total. We'll talk about what went wrong with Carol Danvers in Avengers: Endgame and why it may have been a strategic move on the part of Marvel. However, the film attracted a huge crowd and ultimately Endgame ended up shattering the previously held domestic records of its predecessor Avengers: Infinity War.
But now it's official: Endgame made over $1 billion in its opening weekend, a feat which has never been accomplished by another film - ever.
In US and Canadian theaters, Endgame's estimated $350 million in ticket sales over the opening weekend, easily beat the $260-300 million forecast. In its total box office run, the movie managed to gross almost $2.8 billion. It's one thing to see a movie in a theater full of those people who helped make it, but the Falcon actor wanted to also see how the serious fans would respond.
For a year, fans have been anxiously waiting to see what has become of their much-loved characters, especially the Original Six; Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr), Steve Rogers (Chris Evans), Natasha Romanoff (Scarlett Johansson), Clint Barton (Jeremy Renner), Thor Odinson (Chris Hemsworth) and Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo).
If there's one thing we know about the worldwide box office, it's that big-budget superhero films do very, very well.
