Avengers: Endgame Brings in $169M from Opening Day Overseas

Avengers: Endgame is off to a $169 million start from 25 material markets overseas. Disney is reporting higher opening day grosses for Endgame than its predecessor, Avengers: Infinity War, in each major market already in release.

China is currently leading the pack with a $107.5 million opening day haul (including midnight screenings), the highest industry debut of all time in the world’s second-biggest movie market.  

The roll-out continues today with releases in Argentina, Brazil, Croatia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Israel, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Turkey, United Kingdom, Ukraine, Panama, Uruguay, Paraguay, Peru, Trinidad, Bolivia, Chile, and Colombia. The domestic release is scheduled for tomorrow, when it will open in a record 4,662+ screens, including over 3,900 3D locations, 410 IMAX screens, 785 Premium Large Format screens and 250 immersive seating locations. Domestic previews are scheduled to begin tonight at 6pm.

Disney is shying away from providing detailed comps at this stage, citing that Avengers: Endgame Wednesday roll-out would provide an inconsistent measure. The studio, however, isn’t holding back in touting Endgame‘s opening day records, listed under the opening day’s international grosses below:
