Avengers: Endgame has Earth’s mightiest opening with $1.2 billion globally

Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Endgame has officially posted the biggest opening of all time, debuting to a record-shattering global haul of $1.2 billion, making it the first movie to gross $1 billion in its opening weekend. The film crossed the $1 billion threshold in just five days, breaking the eleven day record set by Infinity War .

“Kevin Feige and the Marvel Studios team have continued to challenge notions of what is possible at the movie theatre both in terms of storytelling and at the box office,” said Alan Horn, Chairman, The Walt Disney Studios. “Though ‘Endgame’ is far from an end for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, these first 22 films constitute a sprawling achievement, and this weekend’s monumental success is a testament to the world they’ve envisioned, the talent involved, and their collective passion, matched by the irrepressible enthusiasm of fans around the world.”

“From the very beginning with ‘Iron Man,’ all we’ve wanted to do was tell stories that brought these characters to life onscreen the way we’ve experienced them as fans of the comics,” said Kevin Feige, President, Marvel Studios. “That we’ve had so many other successes in this journey leading to this unbelievable result with ‘Avengers: Endgame’ has been almost entirely due to the fans around the world who have supported us through it all. Our directors, Anthony and Joe Russo, and our writers, Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, really brought this story home, and I am also incredibly thankful for our cast and filmmakers from across the MCU and all who’ve worked so hard to make these films the best they can be, including the amazing teams at Marvel Studios and Disney. And of course, without Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, none of this would have been possible.”

Said directors Anthony and Joe Russo, “We poured our heart and soul into ‘Avengers: Endgame,’ hoping to tell a story that would inspire audiences around the world. Our family of cast and crew felt honored to be entrusted with bringing the Infinity Saga to a close. To Kevin Feige, everyone at Disney and Marvel, and the incredible, global community of fans – thank you.”

Domestically the film brought in $350 million, breaking Infinity War‘s previous record of $257 million. Internationally the film debuted to the tune of $859 million, with $330.5 million of that coming from China alone.

Seven years ago, Marvel’s The Avengers became the first movie to ever debut to $200 million at the domestic box office and now Endgame has become the first ever $300 million debut in US box office history. The film kicked off with a record $60 million in Thursday previews contributing to a record first-day gross of $156.7 million. A record estimated Saturday of $109 million and a record estimated Sunday of $84.3 million bring the estimated debut to $350 million across three days from an all-time industry high 4,662 theaters.

Avengers: Endgame marks the 8th Marvel Studios movie to cross $1 billion, and the second this year after Captain Marvel. The film has already out grossed fourteen of the MCU’s other 21 movies in its opening weekend and has resulted in the biggest industry opening weekend of all time across all regions and in 44 markets. The film also had the biggest IMAX global debut of all-time with $91.5 million. Marvel Studios now holds the two biggest global openings of all time with Avengers: Endgame and Avengers: Infinity War.
