“Avengers” Smashes Opening Records, Shows No End(game) to Success

April 29, 2019

The fourth entry in the “Avengers” film series may have just outdone its predecessor, and surpassed its opening predictions by claiming $1.2 billion in ticket sales over the weekend.

Several reports have announced that “Avengers: Endgame” scored big time by pulling in a cool billion dollars in just five days. It smashed the previous record held by last year’s offering, “Avengers: Infinity War”, and its opening takings of $640 million.

The 22nd Marvel Studios film made $350 million in the United States alone, but enjoyed amazing success since opening in China last Wednesday, 24 April, collecting $331 million.

“Engame” now enjoys the title of being the fastest film to cross the billion dollar mark in just 44 hours – and it looks set to surpass Disney’s “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” total earnings.

Despite these gargantuan numbers, it must be noted that this is just the start of the film’s theatrical run.
