Avengers: Endgame has emotional Marvel fans saying #ThankYouAvengers

Lydia FlemingApr 29, 2019

It was always a foregone conclusion that Avengers: Endgame would be massive, but the first round of box office numbers are in, and it seems that quite a lot of people were keen to see how the aftermath of the Thanos snap would play out.

An Avengers fan in costume arrives at the TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood to attend the opening screening of "Avengers: Endgame" in Los Angeles, California, U.S., April 25, 2019.

"Endgame" set the record for biggest opening weekend, bringing in an estimated $1.2 billion globally. The record for the highest opening weekend for a Hollywood film in India is now held by "Avengers: Infinity War" (Rs. 94.30 crores). That crushes the record for the biggest opening weekend internationally, which was held by 2017's "The Fate of the Furious".

An era of Marvel movies ends with Avengers: Endgame.

Avengers: Endgame is setting records for other films to face the challenge.

"Endgame" immediately becomes the biggest movie of the year, too, topping Disney's setup movie, "Captain Marvel", which has grossed $1.1 billion total since its early March release.

The film began being released internationally on Wednesday.

Avengers: Endgame has fans saying thank you for all the heroes of the MCU.

United Kingdom to block Huawei from core parts of 5G network
Chinese tech giant Huawei has reportedly been given the go ahead to help build Britains new 5G network Pic: AP Photo/Kin Cheung. However, Ms James said she was not "biased against" Huawei and that "banishing" one supplier would not solve security concerns.

Worldwide, "Endgame" is already the sixth-biggest movie in the Marvel universe.

Single-handedly, "Endgame" led the overall weekend at the domestic box office to a record $400 million in ticket sales, according to Comscore.

In the USA alone, Endgame, which stars Robert Downey Jr as Iron Man, brought in a record $350m. With that being said, the Russo Brothers aren't really known for doing things like that, which means this may have just set up the Loki Disney+ TV series.

Paul Dergarabedian, senior analyst at Comscore, said that "Endgame" signals a "momentous end of an era" but now opens the door for "a new and exciting chapter for the future of the Marvel brand".

Disney bought Marvel in 2009 for $4 billion.

Further boosting the results for "Endgame" were good reviews; it now ranks as 96% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes, the best rating for any Marvel movie aside from "Black Panther".

Until Friday afternoon, online box office tracking system Box Office Mojo said the matinees for the movie are now heading toward "a 140 million+ opening day".
