Avengers: Endgame seems to be steamrolling over every kind of box office record. The Marvel juggernaut has already broken another box office record right in its second weekend itself.
What Box Office Records Were Broken by Avenger: Endgame?
The movie has earned $40 million on Friday and pulled in a gigantic $500 million total at the domestic box office in just eight days. That is certainly a record being set. It has beaten the previous record set by Star Wars: The Force Awakens and is on track to earn $600 million to become the second highest, second weekend earner in record time.
But that’s not all, as Endgame has already broken the record which was set by Star Wars: The Force Awakens in 2015 for highest grossing opening day. Avengers: Endgame made $156.7 million in Thursday night previews alone. The movie also had the first ever $1 billion opening weekend at the global box office.
The other openers are struggling to compete with Endgame’s behemoth success. The romantic comedy Long Shot is currently sitting in the second spot with $10.6 million. The thriller The Intruder opened in the third spot.
