Well, as expected, Avengers: Endgame is all set to break the records. But, we all expected something like this would happen. Yesterday Avengers: Endgame hit the theatres worldwide, and it has already written its name in the box office history books. Marvel’s biggest blockbuster to-date was expected to be a behemoth when it hit theatres this weekend. But so far Avengers: Endgame is already exceeded the lofty estimates, delivering the biggest opening preview night in box office history.
Avengers: Endgame Box Office Collection
Avengers: Endgame made a whopping $60 million on Thursday night. Thus knocking off previous record holder Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The 2015’s return to Star Wars earned $57 million in its preview night. It was a record that seemed nearly unbreakable at the time. Well, Endgame is certainly a one-of-a-kind box office performer, and the broken records are just getting started!
It was projected that Avengers: Endgame would finish the preview outing at around $43 million. Of course, that wasn’t official from Disney. But the added screenings in the middle of the night gave Endgame an even bigger boost. $60 million is now the opening night number to beat, and that likely won’t change any time soon.
The previous opening preview night record for the MCU was last year’s Avengers: Infinity War. It earned $39 million on its first Thursday. With $60 million already in the bag and three full days to go, it’s entirely possible that Avengers: Endgame will hit the $300 million mark in its opening weekend. That’s a feat no other movie in domestic box office history can claim. The current opening weekend record belongs to, you guessed it, Avengers: Infinity War at $257 million. It will be almost impossible for Endgame not to top that.
Avengers: Endgame is now playing in theatres. How much do you think it will make this weekend? Let us know in the comments below!
