Avengers: Endgame was finally released this weekend, and Marvel Cinematic Universe fans all over the world came out to see the film – and the box office numbers revealed have shown that. It was pretty much a forgone conclusion that the film would have the highest grossing opening weekend ever – and now that the numbers are in – it’s been confirmed.
As of right now, the film is estimated to have grossed $350 million domestically and $859 million elsewhere. According to Box Office Mojo, the film is projected to make $920 million domestically when it’s finished – which would still put it below Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
It’s also worth pointing out that these are just estimates, and surely, more people will have seen the movie by the end of today. I think with people re-watching the movie so many times, it has a good chance at taking that domestic record. Either way, it’s all good news for Disney, who owns Marvel and Star Wars.
And if you haven’t seen the movie yet, what are you waiting for? It’s quite possibly the best comic book movie ever made. Truly, an event. Movies like this don’t come around very often, so get out and see it. And if you’ve already seen it once, go see it again.
In the MCU movie:
Adrift in space with no food or water, Tony Stark sends a message to Pepper Potts as his oxygen supply starts to dwindle. Meanwhile, the remaining Avengers — Thor, Black Widow, Captain America and Bruce Banner — must figure out a way to bring back their vanquished allies for an epic showdown with Thanos — the evil demigod who decimated the planet and the universe.
Avengers: Endgame is currently playing in theaters everywhere.
