Avengers: Endgame Is Expected To Make More Money Than Infinity War For Its Opening Weekend
The next Avengers movie is almost here.
It's not a big surprise, but now one research firm has put out a report about how much money Avengers: Endgame is predicted to make for its opening in April--and it is a lot.
Numbers from Research Exhibitor via Collider state that Endgame is lined up to make $282 million in the United States and Canada for its opening weekend to set a new opening-weekend record. For comparison, 2018's Infinity War made $258 million domestically on its opening weekend.
A massive opening weekend for Endgame is expected. Infinity War ended on an epic cliffhanger thanks to Thanos' snap, and the film itself is said to mark a conclusion of sorts to the overarching storyline that began 10 years ago.
One factor that could hurt Endgame's box office take is its length. The movie is currently sitting at around three hours, which makes it the longest MCU movie ever. That long of a runtime means theatres will be limited, to a degree, in the number of daily screenings they can accomodate.
The next Marvel movie is Captain Marvel, which hits theatres in March and is also expected to make lots and lots of money for its opening weekend. The film introduces Brie Larson's Captain Marvel to the MCU, and she'll play the role again in April's Endgame.
