Avengers: Endgame Has Earth’s Mightiest Opening with $1.2 Billion Globally

MARVEL STUDIOS

"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.

Directed by Anthony Russo and Joe Russo, "Avengers: Endgame" is a superhero film based on the Marvel Comics superhero team the Avengers.

Australian figures are yet to be finalised, but one estimation puts Endgame's Friday taking at almost AUD$10.3 million - enough to secure the biggest opening day of any film in Australia.

Worldwide, it obliterated the previous record of $US640.5 million, also set by Infinity War (although Infinity War did not open in China until two weeks after its debut). Endgame also set various box office records in countries all over the world.

According to the Korean Film Council, the film attracted over 1 million viewers every day and reached the 6-million mark over the weekend.

Over the weekend, the directors of Avengers: Endgame surprised fans at LA screenings. While it may not be the end for the MCU just yet, it will definitely be hard to top it, even for Marvel. Its prequel "Avengers: Infinity War" formerly held the record making $640 million for its opening previous year. The advance sales are off the roof and the first weekend could see the movie earning Rs 150 crore in India.

Avengers: Endgame is the culmination of a hugely profitable series of films that began with Iron Man in 2008.

The record weekend box office numbers even beat the studio's own estimates.

"I talked to an exhibitor in Kansas who said, 'I've never sold out a 7am show on Saturday morning before, ' and they were doing it all across their circuit."

"We are floored and amazed by the response from all the moviegoers and fans around the world", Cathleen Taff, the president of distribution for Walt Disney Pictures, said in an interview.

"Endgame" was also a huge hit with critics. The film surpassed the opening box office figures of the highest Bollywood grosser Thugs of Hindostan, which opened to Rs 52.25 crore in 2018.
