'Avengers: Endgame' Makes History with $644 Million Global Debut

Thanos with the Infinity Gauntlet

Avengers: Endgame has made box office history by surpassing $1 billion United States globally at the box office during its opening weekend.

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

In 2017, Baahubali 2 set a record by achieving 11.5-million-U.S. -dollar box office in its first two days of the release.

"Endgame" also set weekend records in China, Brazil, France, more than three dozen other markets, Disney said.

To accommodate demand, the Walt Disney Co. released "Endgame" in more theaters than any opening before. The film has a 96% score on Rotten Tomatoes, along with an A+ on CinemaScore and a superhero movie record 9.3/10 on Chinese ticketing site Maoyan. And some theaters even stayed open 72 hours straight. Audiences gave the film an A-plus CinemaScore.

"Our partners in exhibition have done a great job with us on this film". Here's a rundown of all the records "Endgame" will break or has already broken this weekend. Another important fact that can not be missed out here is that the movie Avengers: Endgame does not only conclude the eleven year journey of all the twenty movies, but it also concludes the journey of the Russo brothers with Marvel.

In one she stands atop the battlements of Winterfell with her sister Arya - the pair look deep in thought about something. The episode (the title has not yet been released) is 82 minutes, making it the longest GoT episode ever.

But theatre owners regularly speak of a "halo effect" around a movie like "Endgame".

Paul Dergarabedian, senior analyst at Comscore, said that "Endgame" signals a "momentous end of an era" but now opens the door for "a new and exciting chapter for the future of the Marvel brand". "This is going to have long-term playability for sure". Marvel Studios now holds the two biggest global openings of all time with Avengers: Endgame and Avengers: Infinity War. But if there's a place in box office coverage for "whoa, Nellie" anymore, it is perhaps here.

"The Curse Of La Llorona", last weekend's victor, falls to #3 with $7.5 million (cume now $41.3 million).

In Stark's funeral scene of Avengers Endgame, we see the Avengers, Pepper and Stark's daughter standing along the mourners including a young man named Harley Reener.

Disney bought Marvel in 2009 for $4 billion. It also had the biggest Saturday ever and the biggest Sunday ever.
