The fourth and final film of the Avengers series has shattered box office analysts’ recordings and expectations with its earnings, just five days to $1.2 billion, according to boxofficemojo.com.
Avengers: Endgame has become the movie with the highest debut earnings in the shortest time. It surpassed the limits reached by its predecessor in the franchise, Avengers: Infinity War, which globally raised $640.5 million in 11 days after the big screen debut.
The film was released in cinemas on Friday – with some projections in advance Thursday evening – and also surpassed the US and Canadian record with $350 million, thus surpassing the peak in the North American debut of Infinity War ($258 million).
Outside the United States, Avengers: Endgame earned $ 859 million, of which 330.5 came only from China. In this category, the record has been held so far by the ninth film of The Fast and The Furious, The Fate of the Furious, which raised $443.1 million in 2017.
With this revenue figure, Disney has already covered its spending on producing and promoting the film. It remains to be seen if he outperforms the “supreme” record at the box office – the highest international grossing-up of cinematographic production, owned by James Cameron’s Avatar ($2.787 billion).
