We knew Avengers:: End Game would pull in record numbers in its debut weekend, both domestically and globally, but nobody predicted an opening THIS big! Let’s start with the three-day domestic gross totaling an estimated $350 million and a global weekend over $1 billion. An opening this big is unheard of.
In fact, those numbers are like to increase once the actual totals are revealed, but for now the film’s opening is nearly $93 million larger than the previous record set by the last Avengers movie Infinity War.
Here’s a look at the the records Avengers: Endgame broke this weekend at the domestic box office include:
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.
Here’s a look at the film’s top 16 markets internationally:
The film will release in Russia on Monday, April 29, serving as the final international market where the film has yet to be released.
Thanks to Box Office Mojo for all of these stats.
