Ante up, Avengers!
Marvel’s Avengers: Endgame snapped box office records with a staggering-heart-clutching $1.2 billion worldwide debut!
Via Box Office Mojo:
Avengers: Endgame would deliver the largest opening weekend of all-time, both domestically and globally, but to deliver a three-day domestic gross totaling an estimated $350 million and a global weekend over $1 billion was almost inconceivable.
On Sunday, that figure has become a reality as Endgame not only delivered an estimated $350 million over the course of its first three days in domestic release but a massive $1.2 billion at the global box office in just its first five days in release.

Avengers: Endgame Review By B. Gunn
Jay Z said, “A loss ain’t a loss, it’s a lesson. Appreciate the pain, it’s a blessin’.” Uh ruh, try telling that to the Avengers, Hov.
“Avengers: Endgame” stars… whoever was left from the “Infinity War” snap. Almost 11 years and 22 films have brought us to the conclusion of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Phase 3 and here we are.
So, the remaining members of The Avengers, along with the universe’s remaining population, are trying to come to grips with the aftermath of Thanos’ Infinity Stone-infused snap which wiped out half of ALL living creatures everywhere.
Thor, Ironman, Captain America, and Hulk are supposed to be these un-beatable heroes we can count on to save the day, but no one is truly indestructible, and “Endgame” delves into what happens when these saviors can’t come to our aid. It’s not just about losing a battle, it’s about loss; loss of loved ones, loss of hope.
How does one recover from this? How can we move on? Is it even ok to move on? Real-life situations.
“Endgame” is a decades-long culmination of character introductions, team-ups, and inspirational moments that attempts to bring satisfactory closure to dedicated fans. Directors the Russo brothers facilitate what is an extraordinary grand finale destined to be discussed for even another decade.
We as an audience have invested time and money on these Avengers-based films like a relationship so it’s hard to see it come to an end. But, “Endgame” goes out like a soldier! It is everything you hoped for and nothing that you expected.
All loose ends are tied up individually and as a group. The plot, subplot, and supporting storylines take us on a three-hour odyssey you don’t want to end. I can talk about how outstanding the performances are.
I can talk about how totally mesmerizing the action and CGI are. I can use every adjective in the English language then start using Wakandan language, but it wouldn’t do this masterpiece any justice. You must see it for yourself.
“Avengers: Endgame” is desperation, grief, hope, triumph, and heartbreak. Bring your Kleenex, aiight? I’m just sayin’.
When this film is over, you’ll sit in your seat for a minute, go to the restroom (hey, it is three hours long after all), then go to your car and sit for another minute, decompressing. “Avengers: Endgame” gets a Co-sign Classic!
If I had the money, I’d buy you all a ticket, no cap. See it in IMAX if you can to experience the full force, but see it regardless. I can’t believe this is it.
Although we’ve come…to the eeeend of the roooad…still I caaaan’t leeeet go.
Did you see Avengers: Endgame over the weekend?
