    Avengers: Endgame Decimates Record Books with $1.2 Billion Global Debut

    Heading into the weekend it was a foregone conclusion that Avengers: Endgame would deliver the largest opening weekend of all-time, both domestically and globally, but to deliver a three-day domestic gross totaling an estimated $350 million and a global weekend over $1 billion was almost inconceivable. Today that figure has become a reality as Endgame not only delivered an estimated $350 million over the course of its first three days in domestic release, but a massive $1.2 billion at the global box office in just its first five days in release.

    Endgame's estimated $350 million debut will almost surely improve once actuals are revealed on Monday afternoon, but for now the film's opening is nearly $93 million larger than the previous record set by Avengers: Infinity War ($257.69 million) just last year and a whopping 90% of the overall weekend market share. After critics were overwhelmingly in support of the film heading into the weekend, the film's opening weekend crowd gave it an "A+" CinemaScore, the third such grade in the Marvel Cinematic Universe alongside The Avengers and Black Panther. The audience was 57% male and 61% was 25 years of age or older.

    Looking ahead, forecasting just where exactly Endgame will end up is near impossible, but if we were to compare to Infinity War's domestic debut, that film went on to gross nearly $680 million at the domestic box office. Should Endgame deliver a similar multiplier we're talking about a domestic performance topping $920 million, which would put it just shy of the current record domestic gross of $936.6 million set by Star Wars: The Force Awakens back in 2015. Whether Endgame is able to reach that mark will be a story for another day, but it seems safe to assume it will, at the very least, become the second largest domestic release of all-time considering the lowest multiplier for a film in the MCU is Captain America: Civil War's 2.27x, which would give Endgame a nearly $800 million domestic run.

    Getting back to the film's weekend performance, a look at the the records Avengers: Endgame broke this weekend at the domestic box office include:
    • Largest Thursday Previews: $60 million
      Previous Record: $57 million (Star Wars: The Force Awakens)

    • Global IMAX Opening Record: $91.5 million
      Previous Record: $47.6 million (Star Wars: The Force Awakens)
    As already mentioned, it wasn't only domestic records that fell this weekend. Endgame's $859 million international opening is over $400 million more than the previous record set by The Fate of the Furious and the $1.2 billion in global ticket sales is nearly double the previous record of $640.5 million set by Avengers: Infinity War just last year. The film is the fastest film to ever top $1 billion globally, doing so after just five days, and it already ranks as the 18th largest worldwide release ever and the sixth largest worldwide release in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

    Speaking of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the franchise's 22 films have now grossed over $19.8 billion worldwide, of which nine have topped $1 billion at the global box office.

    Within that record setting global debut, Endgame delivered the #1 opening day ($107.8m) in China as well as the largest five-day opening weekend in the market ($330.5m) and already ranks as the #4 non-local film ever in the market. In addition to that, the film delivered the largest industry openings in 44 markets, including Australia ($30.8m), Korea ($47.4m), Brazil ($26m), Mexico ($33.1m), France ($24.2m, non-local), Italy ($19m, non-local), Spain ($13.3m) and the UK ($53.8m).

    Here's a look at the film's top 16 markets internationally:
    • China ($330.5m)
    • UK ($53.8m)
    • Korea ($47.4m)
    • Mexico ($33.1m)
    • Australia ($30.8m)
    • Germany ($26.9m)
    • India ($26.7m)
    • Brazil ($26.0m)

    • Spain ($13.3m)
    • Japan ($13.0m)

    Avengers: Endgame Tops $2 Billion Globally, En Route to Dominant Second Weekend

    In just twelve days of global release Avengers: Endgame is already the second largest worldwide release of all-time, topping $2 billion globally and delivering over $619 million at the domestic box office.

    With an estimated $145.8 million, Avengers: Endgame came up just a bit shy of the record $149.2 million second weekend for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but this may be an example of Disney being just a bit cautious. Tomorrow may reveal the film was able to top the record mark set by Force Awakens once weekend actuals are released, but even without that record Endgame has now grossed nearly $620 million at the domestic box office, already ranking as the ninth largest domestic release of all-time after just ten days in theaters. Just how high it will climb remains difficult to nail down, but a domestic gross topping $900 million seems like an extreme possibility.

    Internationally, Endgame added over $282 million for an overseas cume that now stands at $1.569 billion and a global total reaching $2.188 billion, making it the second largest global release of all-time, trailing Avatar by $600 million. As for that total, Endgame topped $2 billion worldwide in its eleventh day of release, a total Avatar reached after 47 days.

    Endgame's top international market remains China where the film has now grossed over $575 million followed by the UK ($89.9m), Korea ($82.1m), Mexico ($61.6m), Brazil ($56.3m), India ($51.8m), Germany ($47.4m), Australia ($46.2m), France ($43.1m), Japan ($34.4m), Indonesia ($30.9m), Italy ($29.0m), Philippines ($28.7m), Spain ($24.9m), Hong Kong ($23.1m), Taiwan ($22.5m) and Thailand ($22.5m). Not included in those numbers is the film's $32.6 million seven day opening in Russia where it began playing on Monday and has already become the sixth largest release in the market of all-time.

      Detective Pikachu Delivers Record Opening for a Video Game Adaptation as Endgame Tops $700M

      With an estimated $63 million, Avengers: Endgame topped the weekend box office for the third straight weekend in a row for a domestic cume that now stands at $723.5 million. Endgame is only the third film ever to top $700 million domestically as it topped Black Panther to become the third highest grossing domestic release of all-time.

      Internationally, Endgame added another $102.3 million for an international cume that now stands at $1.76 billion and a global tally reaching $2.485 billion. The film remains the second highest grossing international and worldwide release ever, trailing Avatar both categories, though by just $302 million worldwide and $265 million internationally in what could end up a very tight race.
