“Avengers: Endgame” sweeps the box office and marks the best premiere in history

Experts pointed out that it would make history and “Avengers: Endgame” fulfilled the predictions, since it became the biggest box office premiere of all time with overwhelming collection figures that reflect the tremendous magnitude of this world event.

 

More than a billion euros is the extraordinary booty achieved by this superhero movie in its launch week, a fact that includes both the weekend and the previous days of previews or advanced passes.

“Avengers: Endgame”, the first film to surpass 1,000 million euros in its cinematic landing, snatched the record of the best international premiere in history to its predecessor “Avengers: Infinity War” (2018), whose brand remained at about 600 million.

“We put our heart and soul into “Avengers: Endgame” hoping to tell a story that will inspire audiences around the world,” directors Anthony and Joe Russo said in a statement released by Disney on Sunday.

“Our cast family and crew were honored to be entrusted with bringing the Infinity saga to an end. To Kevin Feige (president of Marvel Studios), everyone at Disney and Marvel, and the incredible and global community of fans, thank you, “they added.

“Avengers: Endgame” also broke box office records in numerous countries, something not particularly complicated if you have on your side a constellation of superheroes led by Iron Man and Captain America and a stellar cast that includes, among others, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Chris Hemsworth, Brie Larson, Chris Evans, Chadwick Boseman, Chris Pratt and Zoe Saldaña.

 

World box office record

For example, “Avengers: Endgame” managed with more than 300 million euros to become the best premiere in North America (United States and Canada) at a great distance from the previous record that had “Avengers: Infinity War” with more than 200 million.

In China it got almost 300 million, record in the Asian country and a huge contribution that did not count for his record “Avengers: Infinity War”, since this film premiered there two weeks later than in the rest of the world.

Disney assured that “Avengers: Endgame” has beaten the best premiere brands in 44 international markets, including Australia, South Korea, Brazil, Mexico, Argentina, the United Kingdom-Ireland and Spain.

And, according to the data of the specialized portal Box Office Mojo, “Avengers: Endgame” is already the eighteenth highest grossing film in history in the world although it has only been a few days on the big screen.

The weekend was also a gift for fans of pop culture, since the release of “Avengers: Endgame” coincided with the broadcast of “The long night”, the expected episode of “Game of Thrones” with a huge 82-minutes battle.

 

Next goal: Avatar historical record

This extraordinary commercial reception to the film called to culminate Marvel Cinematographic Universe places “Avengers: Endgame” on the launching ramp to aspire to the most desired achievement: the film with the highest collection of all time. This honor, until now, corresponds to “Avatar” (2009) with almost 2.5 million euros.

The fever for “Avengers: Endgame” was felt throughout the weekend, from the cinemas with countless exhausted passes and early morning screenings to the social networks where the movie has been a constant trend.

With the support of critics (the review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes reflected 96% of positive opinions), “Avengers: Endgame” also achieved the feat of satisfying the vast majority of its fans with three hours of show and emotion that summarize the legacy of the Marvel saga.

 

“Don´t spoil the Endgame”

In the days before its release, the makers of “Avengers: Endgame” asked the public not to ruin the film to the rest of fans who had not seen the film yet and insistently requested that they do not reveal the numerous surprises that the film contained.

The unwritten pact between spectators and Marvel was largely respected although not by everybody: LeSean McCoy, American football player from Buffalo Bills, received enormous critics in Twitter for posting important details of the end of “Avengers: Endgame” in this social network.

In any case, this film, number 22 of Marvel, is also the icing on the cake for the work of Kevin Feige, the president of Marvel Studios and the architect of this huge film project that, in total, adds up to almost 18,000 million dollars of collection.
