It’s truly the Avengers’ world. The opening weekend of “Avengers: Endgame” demolished box office records with a stunning $350 million in North America and $1.2 billion worldwide.
Disney-Marvel’s fourth and final Avengers superhero movie has captivated moviegoers, accounting for more than four of every five tickets sold domestically. “Avengers: Endgame” topped the year-old “Avengers: Infinity War” records by nearly $100 million domestically and a jaw-dropping $560 million worldwide. China generated an astounding $329 million over its five-day launch weekend.
The film, directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, has a star-studded cast that includes Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Don Cheadle, Paul Rudd, Brie Larson, Karen Gillan, Danai Gurira, Bradley Cooper and Josh Brolin.
“Avengrs: Endgame” is the 22nd movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which launched in 2008 with “Iron Man.” Those films have now eclipsed $19 billion in worldwide box office. Here’s a rundown of all the records “Endgame” will break or has already broken this weekend.

“‘Endgame’ represents the culmination of a decade long commitment of Marvel to the audience and the fans devotion to the beloved characters of the MCU,” said Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst at Comscore. “This massive and historic debut shows that by delivering consistently great movies coupled with characters inhabited by perhaps the most perfectly cast group of actors in cinematic history, Marvel has literally rewritten the rule book and in the process has made box office history.”
Critics have strongly supported “Avengers: Endgame” with a 96% score from Rotten Tomatoes — the second best ever earned by a Marvel release after “Black Panther” at 97%. ComScore/Screen Engine reported that 61% of this weekend’s North American audience bought their tickets online ahead of time.
“Avengers: Endgame” is providing a badly needed jolt to the North American box office, which for 2019 was down 16.7% to $2.94 billion as of April 24. As of Sunday, the gap had dropped to 13.3%, according to Comscore.
“The Avengers, by assembling the biggest movie debut in history, have proven that another of their superpowers is the ability to knock several percentage points off the year-to-date deficit,” Dergarabedian said. “‘Endgame’ has truly started the momentum rolling on potentially the biggest revenue generating summer (and year) in box office history.”
Imax reported that “Avengers: Endgame” broke its worldwide opening record with $91.5 million, 92% above previous record-holder “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.”
“Kevin Feige and the Marvel Studios team have continued to challenge notions of what is possible at the movie theatre both in terms of storytelling and at the box office,” said Disney Studios chairman Alan Horn. “Though ‘Endgame’ is far from an end for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, these first 22 films constitute a sprawling achievement, and this weekend’s monumental success is a testament to the world they’ve envisioned, the talent involved, and their collective passion, matched by the irrepressible enthusiasm of fans around the world.”
I was satisfied with Thanos' fate. It seemed just.I watched it Friday in the early afternoon. Beating the crowd.
They could have ended it much better.
A more thrilling end would have been to have Thanos from a parallel universe enter the equation. That Thanos a complete opposite. A good guy, that feels the need to eliminate his evil counterpart.
Come on you guy's. Somebody take a minute and show me where the spoiler tags are and how to use them.
Its in the same location in the post editor as the quotation button is, in a small drop down next to the media embedding button...
Thanks. Good explanation.Okay that's why I don't see it because I can't edit. So I typed it in manually. lol
The reason he doesn't come back is because he was killed before the snap of the fingers. Tony makes everyone promise/agree not to change anything else because he is afraid it could affect his daughters arrival. So, the only thing they can change is who died by Thanos snapping his fingers.
Avengers: Endgame tally.
"Altogether, 4 or 5 heroes are now gone. Tony Stark - dead. Though Iron Man will surely be replaced. Black Widow - dead. Vision - dead. Captain America - Now old and out of the picture. The remaining question mark is Nick Fury. Even though he didn't appear in the great battle, he wasn't in the Infinity War battle either."
Can you elaborate on what that may mean? What will the next phase be like?
