“Avengers: Endgame” made a shocking amount of money at the box office this past weekend.
The Hollywood Reporter reported the following Sunday on the superhero film’s stunning success:
The superhero tentpole opened to $350 million in North America and $859 million overseas for a stunning global launch of $1.2 billion, including $330.5 million in China and $56 million in the U.K. All are records — and then some — in yet another victory for Disney and Marvel Studios.
Furthermore, weekend revenue for all films domestically clocked in at more than $397 million, an unprecedented sum. Until now, the most ever collected in one weekend was $314 million.
Are you kidding me? Over a billion dollars? That is downright absurd. As pointed out by THR in the same report, these numbers are records, and I don’t envision they’ll get broken anytime soon.
I know I’ve said this about a billion and a half times at this point, but I don’t understand how Marvel is just okay hanging up these films.
Aren’t we supposed to love money in this country? Do the people at Disney and Marvel not like making a ton of cash? (RELATED: One Movie Is Expected To Obliterate The Box Office. The Numbers Are Huge)
Hollywood usually will go back to the well a billion times as long as it is still pumping out cash. However, it really looks like the journey of “Avengers” is over, but at least it went out with a massive bang. Making more than $1 billion during a debut is simply mind-boggling.

I have no idea what it’d take for a movie to beat this insane record set by “Avengers: Endgame.” Honestly, I’m not even sure it’s possible.
Yet, there’s no doubt at all that I’ll eventually make my way to the theater for this one. Everything I’ve heard about has been fantastic. I can’t wait to find out for myself.
