Avengers: Endgame was expected to have a huge box office. However, it went far beyond all expectations.

On April 28 morning, Disney made an announcement that Avengers: Endgame gained $1.209 billion globally within its premiere weekend, breaking the last year record of Avengers: Infinity War for $640.5 million in the opening day.

Avengers: Endgame gathered more than $1,2 billion dollars in the opening week

On the same day, Box Office Mojo also calculated the movie’s ticket sales at $1.015 billion, which meant that it is the very first movie in history to have ticket sales exceeded $1 billion in the opening weekend as well. The fourth Avengers movie also ripped up records for non–US and global debuts (owing to a day-and-date opening in China)

Disney just released some outstanding statistics of Avengers: Endgame up to April 28, claiming its position of No.1.

The journey to avenge the fallen is much more successful than expected

Entering two biggest movie markets (China and the US), Avengers: Endgame is expected to “near cash breakeven” as of Sunday, which means that Disney would gain back everything spent on producing and marketing the box office record breaker and turn a profit.

It can also be seen that US domestic and international records are at hand. Last year, Avengers: Infinity War made into the top four with $678.8 million in the US, following behind Black Panther (also 2018) Avatar (2009), and Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015). With the appearance of Avengers: Endgame, which quickly reached the 2nd position in the ranking, it may stand a chance to dethrone the record holder - Star Wars, or even Avatar.
