Tavern Talk: Video Review - AVENGERS: ENDGAME

The question was never going to be whether or not Avengers: Endgame would top the box office, but rather by how large of a margin it would win the top spot at the box office. Well, not only did Endgame come in at No.1 over the weekend, but it decimated all kinds of records by delivering the largest opening weekend of all-time, both domestically and globally, with a three-day domestic gross totaling an estimated $350 million and a global weekend over $1.2 billion. That's $350 million domestic in three days of release and $1.2 billion (with a "B") globally in its first five days overcoming its predecessor, Avengers: Infinity War, to become the fastest grossing movie to reach a billion as it took Infinity War a whole eleven days to accomplish this feat. BoxOfficeMojo provided a nice list of records that Endgame broke over its opening weekend which is included in the hyperlink, but while Disney and Marvel Studios are no doubt celebrating this huge win they might also be celebrating a little extra as not only did they have the No. 1 film in the world, but the No. 2 film at the domestic Box Office as Captain Marvel received a favorable Avengers bump as, in its eighth week of release, the film dipped only -10% for an estimated $8 million three-day run placing it over $413 million at the domestic box office while adding over $2 million internationally for a worldwide weekend that topped $10 million and a global cume that now stands at $1.11 billion. To date, the Marvel Cinematic Universe's twenty-two films have now grossed over $19.8 billion worldwide, of which nine have topped $1 billion at the global box office. Not too shabby. For the rest of the films this weekend though, the news wasn't so great. The Curse of La Llorona dipped -72% for an estimated $7.5 million weekend, Breakthrough landed in third place, dipping -44% for a  $6.3 million weekend, while Shazam! brought in an estimated $5.5 million (-66%) as it entered its fourth week in release. This Friday will see the release of three new films including STX'a first original animated feature in Uglydolls, the Seth Rogen/Charlize Theron comedy Long Shot from Lionsgate and Summit, as well as Screen Gems' Dennis Quaid-thriller, The Intruder, but don't expect anything to surpass Endgame for that top spot just yet.
