Dread it, Run from it, Destiny still arrives. Avengers: Endgame has overcome yet another obstacle in its journey of box office domination, and though it may not break all the records, there is no way a feat of this sort will ever be forgotten…
Marvel Fans will be happy now since this is what they’ve wanted ever since. Even before the movie aired, fans have been giving speculations about the movie’s box office.
Domestically, Avengers: Endgame has absolutely shattered box office records since its release on April 26th. With a large opening of around $350 million, expectations were sky high for its performance over the following weekends. Even though its legs have been a concern in its race against Avatar to become the highest grossing movie of all time worldwide, it is projected to beat the film domestically by Saturday night.
Box Office Pro’s Saturday estimates show that the Marvel Studios epic’s current $748 million gross will overtake Avatar’s $760 million before tomorrow morning, making over $12 million for the day. This makes the film the second highest grossing domestic release in history, behind only Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ which still seats comfortably on the throne with $937 million.
Due to the film doing ~60% weekend drops since its release, Avatar’s worldwide record is still in contention – though analysts are finding it more unlikely by the day.
