It looks like the game has certainly ended- Marvel’s Avengers: Endgame broke a box office record in Northern America. On its premiere Thursday evening, it became the first film to gross $140 million in a single day. In fact, some theaters and cinemas even stayed open all night to continue the shows on demand. Well, just to say, Endgame has officially taken over the world because America’s not the only country its breaking records in. But is it all worth it? Apparently yes, because fans have even been transported to hospitals after crying endlessly at the movie!
Avengers: Endgame Breaking Records All Across the Globe
Just on Thursday night at its premiere, Avengers: Endgame made a whopping $60 million from the preview screenings. It officially became the biggest Thursday night opening at the box office of all time. After screenings started in the evening, some places even kept cinemas open all night and early morning for the shows.
With Endgame, Marvel was able to beat its former record which it set with Infinity War. Previously, it was the Marvel film with the highest preview amount at $39 million but now Endgame excels it by setting the value at $60 million. In fact, Avengers: Endgame also surpassed other major movies as well. That includes “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” ($57 million), “Star Wars: The Last Jedi “($45 million), and “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2” ($43.5 million). These three movies held the top spots previously. But looks like Marvel has done some real work with their latest franchise.
However, now that the premiere day is over, and its the opening weekend, Endgame seems to be making much more progress. It has brought in $107.5 million for a global total after two days that as of Friday sits at $305.5 million. On a certain ticketing website in China, the movie has a 9.3/10 score which is the greatest for a Marvel movie till now. As for the US, it has a 96% rating on Rotten Tomatoes which is the second best. Only Black Panther has outdone it with a 97% rating on the site.
Avengers: Endgame might be the last movie of the franchise. Now that all stories have concluded, we have lost some of our favorite heroes. But at least, the universe is saved!
