Avengers: Endgame box office projects ridiculously high opening weekend


Avengers: Endgame, to the surprise of no one, projects to unleash at the box office’s opening weekend.

Superhero film fans have Captain Marvel, Shazam and Hellboy to consume over the next six weeks, before the ultimate production that arguably outweighs anything for the box office in 2019: Avengers: Endgame.

A culmination of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Endgame will mark an ending and a beginning for old and new heroes, respectively, after the events of Avengers: Infinity War.

The surviving Avengers have a Thanos-sized mountain to climb this spring, but nothing will be higher than the stack of money Endgame projects to earn opening weekend. According to Bloomberg, the Anthony and Joe Russo-directed movie is tracking for $282 million for its first days in theaters. That would top Infinity War by nearly $25 million.

Sometimes the real numbers top or annihilate its projections. Movies even occasionally fall short; It would be a stunner if Endgame missed its mark, however. If anything, it could exceed $282 million and near the illustrious $300 million.

Given a potentially long run in theaters, this could let it easily clip $1 billion within a few weeks and aim to topple the $2.048 billion Infinity War acquired in 2018 for Marvel Studios.

Frankly, who knows if Endgame has a ceiling. As the potentially last time moviegoers will see Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, Chris Evans as Captain America and others don their superhero attire of the past five to 10 years, they may flock to witness this not just once or twice, but three times and counting, depending on how they consume Endgame‘s events on the first watch.

There are still two months before Avengers: Endgame hits theaters, with time for MCU fans to dissect the film’s possible events and wonder what’s next. Either way, the box office will take $1.5 billion-$2.5 billion of everyone’s money, and that’s plenty to keep this franchise alive for another 11 years.
