Despite the fact that this weekend comes out, Joe and Anthony Rousseau Avengers: Endgame has been breaking the box office records for several weeks. It all started about a month ago when tickets were sold because it set a new high bar for most pre-sale tickets sold in one day (overloading tickets buying websites in the process), and only a few weeks before reporting to Atom Tickets that it's officially their best seller at all times.
According to the company, more than 8,000 projections were sold across the United States, and theaters are forced to add more and more showtimes in order to keep pace with demand. The pace at which movie tickets were sold was remarkable, as the blockbuster apparently sold five times as many tickets in its first week of the number of passages sold for Avengers: Infinity War this time last year.
Fandango has announced its new Top 5 rankings for this newsletters, and you will notice that the two largest world franchises are dominated:
1. "Avengers: Endgame" (2019)
2. Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015)
3. "Star Wars: The Last Jeep" (2017)
4. "Avengers: an Endless War" (2018)
5. "The Rogue: a Story of War Wars" (2016)
The still big question is how good it is Avengers: Endgame will be able to do it at its open weekend, and if it will be able to overcome the massive numbers that were generated by the last Avengers movie. Avengers: Infinity War was a crazy success when it was released in April 2018, not only setting a new high-level homemade mark for home release in the first three days ($ 257.7 million), but also a record internationally ($ 640.5 million). At the moment, it also stands for a film that takes the least time to hit $ 1 billion globally, successfully making that money in only 11 days, and is also the highest release of all superheroes, with a total of $ 2,048 billion.
But how good it can be Avengers: Endgame really? After all, there are only so many theaters that can show the film, and only so much time during the day that hosts projections. An important factor that must be considered is the fact that it is longer than three hours, which will ultimately affect the number of times that can be displayed in a 24-hour period. There are many prognosticators who are wondering if there is a $ 300 million home release on the table, but maybe that's not possible. It's probably a matrix equation that we'll get the answer at this weekend.
Regardless, what is not at stake is that Avengers: Endgame will be a great success this weekend – and we will follow his progress very close here on CinemaBlend.
