It's the first film in history to ever do so and it's not the only milestone that it has passed on its path to worldwide domination.

Endgame moved the needle to negative 13.3 per cent but the boost was less significant since Infinity War opened on the same weekend in 2018.

This means that Marvel and Disney continue their stranglehold on box office money, now having the two biggest global openings of all time in Avengers: Endgame and Avengers: Infinity War. "'Endgame' has truly started the momentum rolling on potentially the biggest revenue generating summer (and year) in box office history".

Endgame is the number one movie domestically, internationally, and combined globally.

It has made approximately $487 million overseas, according to the studio, smashing the record for the biggest global opening weekend that was previously held by 2017's The Fate of the Furious.

Technically, films open on Thursday night, but the total is usually combined with Friday's numbers and then that it considered the opening day total.

Some fans in China paid more than 500 yuan ($105.60), for "Endgame" tickets on the grey market, far more than the average 60 yuan average price at cinemas nationwide. After Baahubali: The Conclusion, the Avengers franchise holds the second highest opening day record with the former earning Rs 121 crore on its first day in India.

Warner Bros.' superhero film "Shazam!" finished fifth with an estimated 5.52 million dollars in its fourth weekend, pushing its North American total to 131.15 million dollars through Sunday. This, of course, is mostly due to the Avengers connection. Where available, the latest worldwide numbers for Friday through Sunday are also included. Disney calls the Chinese box office receipts of $330.5 million "astounding", if it does say so itself. Sharing the film's box office report, Taran Adarsh tweeted: "Avengers Endgame is rewriting record books".

Disney now holds all but one of the top 12 box-office openings of all time. This right here is unprecedented.

Marvels much-awaited film 'Avengers: Endgame' is on a roll ever since its release all over the globe. The film crossed the $1 billion threshold in just five days, breaking the eleven day record set byInfinity War .
