First film to break $1 billion in an opening weekend

In its opening weekend, ‘Avengers: Endgame’ made breaking box office records look like a snap. The last film in what Marvel Studios dubbed phase three of its rollout of characters and plots in an ever-expanding cinematic universe is a box office marvel raking in an estimated $1.2 billion at the box office.

Benefiting from a $350 million domestic debut and another $859 million in global box office receipts, it’s clear that the Marvel Studios franchise has achieved super heroic returns for Disney since its 2009 acquisition for $4 billion.

‘Avengers: Endgame’ hit the billion-dollar mark in five days, faster than its predecessor ‘Avengers:Infinity War’, which held the previous record at 11 days (but still not faster than a speeding bullet).

Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Brie Larson, Jeremy Renner, Don Cheadle, Paul Rudd, Brie Larson, Karen Gillan, Danai Gurira, Chadwick Boseman (fleetingly), Bradley Cooper and Josh Brolin; the film was an exercise in fan service, but also a thrilling and moving way to say goodbye to the current crop of Earth’s mightiest heroes, according to our reviewer, Anthony Ha.

In all, the 22 films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe have grossed $19.9 billion at the global box office - with the four ‘Avengers’ films bringing in nearly $6.2 billion. Tech Cruch
