Deadline reports that Disney/Marvel Studios has secured an April 24th release date for Avengers: Endgame, the rest of the various foreign markets will get the film on April 26th (same as the domestic release). They rightly point out that this move could result in a massive record for opening global grosses for the film tallying around $840 million, not too off from the combined opening earings on Avengers: Infinity War, but the China release date was delayed resulting in the film earning $640.4 million globally and then $199 million in China a little while after that.
I think the aim is to grab a box office record rather than increasing the box office earnings of Infinity War, although that could happen as well.
It’s already been a fantastic year for Marvel Studios as the debut film in the budding Captain Marvel franchise has made an impressive $938 million worldwide as it seeks to cross the billion-dollar mark by Monday, if not sooner. They also have Spider-Man: Far From Home coming out on July 5th, while being distributed by Sony Pictures is still a Marvel Studios production.
Adrift in space with no food or water, Tony Stark sends a message to Pepper Potts as his oxygen supply starts to dwindle. Meanwhile, the remaining Avengers — Thor, Black Widow, Captain America and Bruce Banner — must figure out a way to bring back their vanquished allies for an epic showdown with Thanos — the evil demigod who decimated the planet and the universe.
