‘Avengers: Endgame’

Disney executives reported on Wednesday (May 1) that Avengers: Endgame has reached $1.48bn worldwide and ranks as the eighth highest global, sixth highest international, and highest non-Chinese release in China in history.

Endgame added $138m worldwide on Tuesday and overtook Black Panther ($1.347bn) and Avengers: Age Of Ultron ($1.405bn). It crossed $1bn at the international box office on Tuesday following a $105.3m haul that pushed the tally to $1.054bn as it overtook the final grosses of Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows: Part 2 on $961m, The Fate Of The Furious on $1.01bn, and Jurassic World on $1.019bn.

As the May Day holiday kicks off in several international markets including China, the latter has generated an estimated $74m (RMB 500m) on Wednesday to reach $463m (RMB 3.1bn) to rank as the highest non-Chinese release ever in China, ahead of the RMB 2.67bn final gross of previous record-holder Furious 8. Wednesday’s gross is not included in the overall international and global number.

In North America, Tuesday’s $32.9m gross boosted the running total to an estimated $427m as Avengers: Endgame entered the all-time top 20 pantheon after five days of release.

After China comes the UK on $64.7m following a $4m Tuesday gross, South Korea on $54.8m ($4.1m Tuesday gross), Mexico $40.7m ($5m), India $36.3m ($4.3m), Australia $35.2m ($1.8m), Brazil $34.1m ($4m), Germany $31.8m ($3.1m), France $29.9m ($3m), and Italy $22.6m ($1.9m).
