How High Will Avengers: Endgame Go After Smashing Opening Records?
Posted on April 30, 2019
Avengers: Endgame broke many box office opening records with its massive debut. The $1.2 billion global and $350 million U.S. box office opening both set records.These were not the only records. Endgame was also the fastest film to $100 million in just 17 hours. It also had the biggest single day at $156.7 million, biggest Saturday, biggest Sunday and more. A list of all the records can be found on Deadline.
Now that is has established opening day records Endgame now sets its sights on the all-time records charts. If Endgame makes 50% off its box office this coming weekend that would give it another $175 million, plus whatever it makes during the week. Let's say Endgame has around $550 million after its second weekend in theaters. That would put it in 10th place on the all-time domestic gross list according to Box Office Mojo's chart.
This would put on pace to easily catch Avengers: Infinity War at 4th, which made $678 million in 2018. The top three films include Black Panther ($700 million), Avatar ($760 million) and Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($936 million). Endgame has a good chance to get in the $700 million to $800 million range but will it have enough of box office juice to get to $900 million?
The global box office all-time list (not adjusted for inflation) is still dominated by Avatar which made $2.8 billion in 2009. Titanic at #2 will be an easier catch for Endgame. The total global gross for Titanic is $2.2 billion worldwide. The global all-time chart is also available on Box Office Mojo. Avengers: Endgame is already 17th on that list after its first weekend in theaters but it has a long ways to go to catch Avatar.
