Avengers: Endgame Adds $7.5M Domestically on Thursday, Eclipsing Titanic for #5 All-Time w/ $660.4M; #2 All-Time Global Take Climbs to $2.33B

Friday, May 10 Update: Disney reports that Avengers: Endgame added $7.5 million domestically on Thursday, climbing to $660.4 million and overtaking Titanic ($659.4 million) as the fifth highest grossing film in history.

On the domestic front, Endgame now stands 36 percent ahead of where Infinity War was 14 days into release ($486 million) and just over 1 percent ahead of Force Awakens ($651.97 million) at the same point.

Boxoffice projects the Marvel epic will soar past the $700 million domestic threshold this weekend.

Overseas, Endgame took in another $17.6 million yesterday, pushing the international cume to $1.6678 billion. Combined with domestic earnings, the global tally now stands at $2.3282 billion heading into the movie’s third weekend of release.

The studio notes that, after today, daily global updates for Endgame will transition to Sunday-only global reports unless any major milestones are surpassed on a weekday.

Disney also reports that these and other combined earnings sent the studio past $3 billion internationally and $4 billion globally for 2019 to date. These excludes all Fox releases, which the studios notes climb to $3.768 billion and $5.249 billion, respectively, when counting those absorbed studio titles.

Wednesday, May 8 Update: Disney estimates this morning that Avengers: Endgame added $12.5 million domestically and $21.7 million internationally on Tuesday, bringing the respective cumes to $644.5 million and $1.628 billion. Globally, the Marvel epic’s running tally now stands at $2.273 billion.

The film remains the #2 overseas and global earner of all time, now standing 20 percent behind Avatar‘s final $2.0275 billion overseas finish and 18.5 percent behind its final $2.788 billion global finish.

Domestically, Endgame remains in 7th place all-time, next looking to pass Jurassic World‘s $652.3 million final gross for sixth place this week. The film’s 12-day earnings are 36.5 percent ahead of where Infinity War stood at the same point ($472.1 million). Based on a similar trajectory, that keeps Endgame on pace to finish with more than $900 million domestically this summer — which would be second only to The Force Awakens‘ $936.7 million.

Tuesday, May 7 Update: Disney’s estimates this morning put Avengers: Endgame at $10.7 million domestically and $34.0 million overseas on Monday, bumping the film’s respective hauls to $631.9 million and $1.6065 billion.

Globally, Endgame now stands at $2.2384 billion.

With yesterday’s domestic earnings, the Marvel epic overtook one of its predecessor’s — The Avengers ($623.4 million) — to claim seventh place all-time. With the film’s 11-day total in mind, Endgame is 10.6 percent ahead of the pace of The Force Awakens ($571.4 million) and 37 percent ahead of Infinity War ($461.4 million).

Over the weekend, Endgame surpassed Titanic and Force Awakens to claim second place all-time globally. It also moved into second place among overseas performers. The film trails only Avatar on both fronts.

We’re currently projecting Endgame to eclipse that film’s $2.788 billion final total sometime close to, or during, Memorial Day weekend.

Thursday, May 2 Update: The Avengers: Endgame train keeps rolling as Disney updates this morning with reports of a $25.25 million domestic take and $157.8 million overseas on Wednesday, bringing the global cume to $1.6641 billion through just eight days.

Globally, Endgame passed Furious 7 ($1.516 billion) and The Avengers ($1.519 billion) to become the sixth highest grossing film of all time. Internationally, the film now stands at $1.2118 billion, moving ahead of Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($1.132 billion) and Furious 7 ($1.163 billion) to become the eighth highest earner in overseas history.

On the domestic front, Wednesday’s take moved the six-day haul to $452.35 million, 40 percent ahead of Infinity War‘s $322.83 million six-day gross and 24.5 percent ahead of Force Awakens‘ $363.46 million at the same point. Endgame overtook E.T. ($435 million), Shrek 2 ($441.23 million), and The Dark Knight Rises ($448.14 million) to now stand in 17th place on the all-time domestic chart.

The film’s $25.25 million domestic gross yesterday represents the third highest Wednesday gross for any film in history when excluding release days. That trails only the sixth day of Force Awakens ($38.0 million) and the second day of 2007’s Transformers ($29.1 million). Including opening days, Endgame‘s sixth day of release ranks 15th among the best single-day Wednesday grosses ever.

Not included in figures above, China’s flash estimates for Thursday stand at $50 million, which would push that country’s gross for the film to $509 million.

More updates to follow.


Tuesday, April 30 Update: Following an historic weekend at the global box office, Disney reports this morning that Avengers: Endgame scored $36.7 million domestically and $82.2 million overseas on Monday. That brings the respective cumes to $393.3 million and $948.7 million, totaling for a staggering $1.3426 billion global haul thus far.

Domestic

Endgame now stands 39 percent ahead of where Infinity War ($282.4 million) stood after four days and 36.5 percent ahead of Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($288.1 million) after four days.

Endgame‘s Monday gross represented the third best ever for any domestic Monday — topping Rogue One‘s $32.1 million while trailing only Black Panther‘s $40.15 million first Monday and Star Wars: The Force Awakens‘ $40.1 million first Monday.

That being said, Panther had the aid of Presidents Day landing on its first Monday, while most schools were also out of session for Force‘s first Monday coming four days before Christmas in 2015.

Adjusted for ticket price inflation, Endgame topped The Dark Knight‘s $31.1 million adjusted ($24.5 million originally) as the best Monday performance ever for a film without the aid of a holiday attendance boost.

With $393.3 million, Endgame leaped from #46 to #35 on the all-time domestic chart, surpassing the lifetime gross (not adjusted for inflation) of films like Spider-Man 2 ($373.6 million), The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King ($377.9 million), Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith ($380.3 million), Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 ($381.2 million), and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2 ($389.8 million).

Overseas & Global

Worldwide, Endgame has now passed The Fate of the Furious ($1.236 billion), Incredibles 2 ($1.243 billion), Beauty and the Beast (2017) ($1.264 billion), Frozen ($1.277 billion), Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom ($1.31 billion), Star Wars: The Last Jedi ($1.333 billion), and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 ($1.342 billion) to become the 10th highest grossing film of all time globally after just six days of release.

Monday also saw Endgame top Wolf Warrior 2 ($868 million), Frozen ($876 million), Fallen Kingdom ($892 million), The Avengers ($896 million), and Avengers: Age of Ultron ($946 million) to become the 9th highest grossing film of all time internationally.

Yesterday’s global figures include a $7.8 million opening in Russia, the highest opening day of all-time in that territory. It was 59 percent ahead of Infinity War‘s first day in Russia, which opened on a Thursday.

Disney projects that Tuesday’s earnings will send the entire 22-film suite of the MCU cross the $20 billion global mark. That will also send Disney’s studio total for 2019 past $1 billion domestically ($1.01 billion), overseas box office past $2 billion ($2.3 billion), and global box office past $3 billion ($3.3 billion).
