Disney-Marvel’s “Avengers: Endgame” has set more than a dozen box office records in its first five days — many by wide margins.

These are some of the records the superhero tentpole is destroying on its first weekend at the box office:

  • Biggest Worldwide Opening: “Avengers: Endgame” grossed $1.2 billion worldwide. The previous record holder was “Avengers: Infinity War” with $640 million on the same weekend last year.
  • Fastest to Reach $1 Billion Worldwide: “Avengers: Endgame” needed only five days to hit the milestone. “Avengers: Infinity War” was the previous record-holder, reaching it in 11 days.
  • Top North American Opening: The film’s estimated domestic debut of $350 million was $93 million higher than “Avengers: Infinity War” and $102 million above “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” the previous two record-holders.
  • Top Daily Totals: “Avengers: Endgame” set North American records for Friday ($156.7 million, including a record $60 million in previews), Saturday ($109 million) and Sunday (an estimated $84.3 million).
  • Top China Opening: China’s five-day launch hit $330.5 million, the highest local or Western film debut of all time. Its opening day of $107.8 million (including midnight shows) was the biggest of all-time.
  • Biggest International Debut: The $859 million total for outside North America smashed the previous record held by “Fate of the Furious” with $443 million.
  • Highest Opening Weekend in 44 Markets: Those include Australia, China, Korea, Brazil, Mexico, Argentina, Spain and UK/Ireland. It also set the highest single-day grosses in 29 markets, including Australia, China, Korea, Brazil, Mexico, Argentina, Spain, UK/Ireland.
  • Biggest Domestic Weekend Total: “Avengers: Endgame” led the overall North American box office to its first $400 million weekend, obliterating the record of $314 million set a year ago when “Avengers: Infinity War” opened.
  • Top Market Share: The fourth Avengers movie has the title for top market share for an opening weekend among films that opened at more than $150 million with 87% of the total box office. That distinction had been held by “Avengers: Age of Ultron” with 82% of the total market when it opened with $233 million in 2015.
  • Imax Record: “Avengers: Endgame” broke the Imax worldwide opening record with $91.5 million, 92% above previous record-holder “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.”
  • Biggest 3D Sale: An estimated $540 million in wordwide ticket sales was generated by the 3D format. “Avengers: Infinity War” had been the prior record holder at $366 million.
  • Widest North American Release: “Avengers: Endgame” opened at 4,662 theaters in North America, besting the 4,529 location count of “Despicable Me 3.”

    Hurra to the Disney monopoly? This isn’t a good thing, for those of us who were hoping the studios will try to make people go to the movie theaters more often. It’s a good thing the international market is still strong for all kind of movies not just superhero movies.

      The Disney monopoly seems to be very good for film. I think you’re issue might be with overall human story telling which might need a jolt but the output from these studios is extremely high caliber work. Trust me when I say I’m not a comics character fan but appreciate everything from casting to writing to simply experiencing this movie. I have little reasons to go to the theatre and typically would not. This one, I fought lines and hassle to make it to.

    Bravo Disney Marvel..
    Also Lucasfilm who provided many effects..
    Even Doomcock admits this is fantastic film..
    A lot of jealousy in Hollywood over Disney Marvel major successes..

  4. It’s good to see that China has become the huge paying market we expected it would. In terms of attendance it is, considering tickets cost 1/3 to 1/2 of those in the US. I’m in Colombia where movies are extremely poplar but tickets are only $3 to $5.

    @johnhlamar
    It’s not good because it’s a single studio a single kind of movie what dominated this week. Nothing for scifi lovers, musical lovers, romance lovers, book to movie adaptation lovers, thriller lovers. Imagine how much bigger this would have been for the movie theathers if Women have had a movie for them (low to mid budget to minimize the risks) and the old folks who still hate to see streaming have had something with major old-times stars. Something like the mule or bookclub. After endgames the superhero formula will become stale. Shazam is struggling already.

    You had to be 1st out with the numbers without waiting for the real total. Sundays numbers aren’t even listed yet. 1.2 billion was as of Saturday. It was an O.K. movie. there were some really good points and some really W.T.H. moments as well. They fumbled the story line at the end, horribly, just to close out some characters. Worst possible scenario you can think of with a billion plot holes in it. Not only that, but they made it a point to tell you that the whole thing is plot holed to death.
