Endgame Decimate All Opening Box Office Records This Weekend?
Last Weekend The Curse of La Llorona scared $ 26.3 million to win the box office of the Easter weekend, the worst case office has seen in more than a decade. Things are going well for a big cosmic upheaval this weekend with Avengers: Endgame which should finally arrive in theaters. The last of Marvel, unsurprisingly, will not only win the weekend, it will set records around the world. The only real question is: how high can it fly?
Needless to say, almost every studio avoids Endgame this weekend. There is no other theatrical release for cinemas. Only a few additional options at the specialized counter and some day and date versions. So really, talking about anything else that Avengers: Endgame this week would be rather a futile exercise. It's like sending Hawkeye fight Thanos by his lonely. So we will focus mainly on the second round with Thanos.
Even in the low end, Avengers: Endgame is expected to yield $ 260 million, Infinity War ($ 257.6 million ) for the new record of the opening weekend unprecedented in the country. However, presale tickets alone exceeding $ 120 million, some analysts believe that this figure could reach $ 300 million Monday morning. It's especially amazing when you take into account the movie duration of 3 hours and 2 minutes. For comparison purposes, Infinity War had 2 hours and 29 minutes. Theaters have added time left and right to meet the demand.

photo, latest news from duo director Joe Russo and Anthony Russo have already reported more $ 100 million on the first day in China, where they opened two days earlier than their planned US release. She is now expected to earn about $ 250 million in the middle empire during her initial tenure. Add to that what we expect to see in other markets around the world and we could very well see Avenges: Endgame break the $ 1 billion mark by Monday, which is a staggering number, even by Marvel standards.
Marvel Studios will greatly benefit from the fact that the film has aroused up to now very positive reviews. To date, he holds a 97 percent approval rate by critics on rotten tomatoes. That does not mean that moviegoers would not have queued to see it anyway, but it could go a long way toward box office success in the coming weeks and maybe, maybe (but probably not), could be the film that ultimately wins James Cameron's Avatar for the most profitable film to date. But do not take too much of an advance on us. Be sure to check out our full list of weekend box office forecasts and come back on Sunday for weekend estimates.
