Avengers: Endgame shatters opening weekend box office records

Movie News 29/04/2019

Avengers: Endgame has absolutely smashed the record for the biggest opening weekend in movie history.

In its first weekend, the film raked in a jaw-dropping $1.2 billion dollars.

That number by itself is impressive, and it only gets more impressive when you add a bit of context.

The record was previously held by Avengers: Infinity War, which reset the bar last year at $640 million - just over half of the new record.

Avengers: Infinity War currently sits fourth on the list of all-time highest-grossing films and if Endgame's opening weekend figures are anything to go by it could be bumped down a couple of spots pretty soon!

Endgame is already the 18th highest grossing film of all time and will be no doubt be chasing down the likes of Titanic and Avatar for a spot at the top.
