Avengers: Endgame is just 2 days away from releasing and big things are expected from this movie. Another big thing which tags along the movie is its monumental opening weekend at the box office. Avengers: Endgame is already breaking records in regards to advance ticket sales. It is even more impressive when you consider Avengers: Infinity War’s impressive record-breaking status. It seems that Endgame is poised to not just defeat Infinity War in advance ticket sales, but also in opening weekend box office according to new projections.
Avengers: Endgame Ticket Sales Statistics
The early Box Office projections for Avengers: Endgame are incredibly promising. The film is expected to launch out of the gate with an $850 million to $900 million worldwide box office total (via THR). Domestically the film is predicted to debut with $270 to $300 million when it hits North America’s 4,600 theatres. If it manages to land in that projected range (or better), it will likely surpass a billion in less than a week. If you think about it, it is all crazy!
To put that into perspective, Infinity War holds the biggest opening ever at $640.5 million and the biggest domestic opening with $257.6 million. Worldwide it doesn’t even seem like a close race. It is also launching in China on the same day and date with the rest of the market. Endgame is expected to debut in China with around $250 million as compared to Infinity War’s $191 million. But we’ll have to wait and see if that happens.
On the other hand, the domestic sale will be a closer race. That’s because Endgame will have fewer showings than Infinity War did due to its increased run time. Just to recap, Endgame clocks in at 3 hours and 58 seconds while Infinity War was 2 hours and 29 minutes. To be fair, we still don’t think this will much of an issue. But it might make the debuts closer than expected.
Infinity War ended up bringing in $2,048,359,754 billion at the box office once all was said and done. Endgame will likely exceed that number, though we’re not sure by how much. If the movie is as good as early reactions are indicating, it should have no problem surpassing Infinity War.
Avengers: Endgame is all set to hit the theatres on April 26.
