There’s no deniability in the fact that Avengers: Endgame will turn out to be the biggest MCU movie, probably the second biggest Hollywood film, if not the first. Let’s be honest, even though competition from other movies won’t really bother Endgame much, it could surely affect the Box Office returns a teeny bit. Moreover, Avatar stands at a staggering $2.7 Billion, and that just might never be beaten. Endgame does have a chance to do that, but don’t bet big on that.
One thing we know for sure is that the force is not with the Star Wars franchise anymore. It is with the MCU, and the entire world follows this franchise like a hawk! Endgame will be the film that finally takes down Titanic. Even if the quality of the story deteriorates (which it certainly wouldn’t), the movie will still end up making more than $2 Billion worldwide. That’s already a major success for Disney anyway. But if the story is actually as compelling as everyone suggests it would be, then that could mark the difference between a $2 Billion movie, and a $2.7 Billion movie.
As far s Pre-ticket sales are concerned, Endgame has already sold nearly double the tickets sold by Avengers: Infinity War, Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Aquaman, and Captain Marvel combined. CNBC has reported that the numbers come from Atom Tickets. When the tickets went on sale on April 2nd, this was actually the first time that there was a waiting period upon the digital portal for buying tickets online.
No one had really seen anything like this happen before. Sites were crashing and people were actually facing a lot of issues trying to buy tickets for the film in the US. So, we can only imagine that this film will in fact have the biggest opening of all time.
So far, Avengers: Infinity War holds the record of having the biggest opening weekend in the US as it mounted a staggering $257.6 Million within the first 3 days. The latest reports for Endgame actually suggest that $300 Million would not be out of the question. But, if we were to be more realistic considering the Runtime of the film and every other factor, Deadline says, that Endgame is coming in around $265 Million. That will still make it the biggest opening, and predictions have already suggested that the film will open with a worldwide total of $850 Million+.
So the hype for this film is actually insane and we just cannot count it out of the race against Avatar. Here are the top 5 highest grossing movies till now, and Endgame can beat all of them:
- Avatar ($2.78b)
- Titanic ($2.18b)
- Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($2.06b)
- Avengers: Infinity War ($2.04b)
- Jurassic Worlds ($1.6b).
Let’s see what happens. Directed by Joe & Anthony Russo, Avengers: Endgame will open on April 26, and it’ll presumably star Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Benedict Cumberbatch, Jeremy Renner Don Cheadle, Tom Holland, Chadwick Boseman, Paul Bettany, Tom Hiddleston, Idris Elba, Danai Gurira, Peter Dinklage, Benedict Wong, Elizabeth Olsen, Anthony Mackie, Sebastian Stan, Gwyneth Paltrow, Benicio del Toro, Josh Brolin, Pom Klementieff, Karen Gillan, Dave Bautista, Zoe Saldana, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Chris Pratt, Paul Rudd, Samuel L. Jackson, Cobie Smulders, Tessa Thompson, Evangeline Lilly, Aaron Taylor Johnson, Cate Blanchett, Michelle Pfeiffer, Michael Douglas, Tilda Swinton, Jeff Goldblum, Katherine Langford, Stellan Skarsgard, Ava Russo and Brie Larson.
Here’s the new synopsis of Avengers: Endgame:
“Thanos snapped his fingers in Avengers: Infinity War, and half the life in the universe instantly dissolved. Now a ragged group of surviving warriors, including Captain America, Black Widow, Iron Man, Thor, and the Hulk works to counteract the Mad Titan’s genocidal action.
Since our heroes couldn’t stop Thanos the first time, what makes them think they can win in a rematch? The answer may be in overwhelming power, thanks to Captain Marvel, or in the tiniest spaces between atoms accessible to Ant-Man. Avengers: Endgame will rewrite the Marvel Cinematic Universe as we know it. When it’s all over, nothing will be the same.”
