Avengers Endgame is Breaking Records

By Matthew Mangibin, Staff Writer

“Avengers, assemble.” – Captain America (Chris Evans).

After Infinity War, fans all around the world have been looking forward to the ending of the two-part movie. Avengers Endgame brings all of the superheroes from the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) all together and have a final fight against the notorious Thanos. It’s been two weeks since the movie premiered on April 26, and it has been making tons of money. Endgame continues to break records as it might be one of the best movies of all time.

The movie has been getting everyone’s attention as it breaks more of the overseas record of $21.7 million on Tuesday. Combined with its current $644.5 million 12-day domestic scume, the Russ Bros’ MCU sequel has earned $2,272.7 billion worldwide in two weeks of global release. There is likely a chance of Endgame topping Avatar’s unadjusted $2.788 billion global gross this week or maybe in the future. As the cinematic universe comes to a close, with Spider-man Far from Home being the last movie before a huge break, it captures all of the actors in one huge final conclusion. The Guardians of the Galaxy and the Avengers, and Dr. Strange all band together. This is what the fans wanted for a long time. Ever since the first Iron Man movie back in 2008, everyone knew that the MCU will be something to remember. This is what we wanted and we got that.

The movie will be relevant for a long time. Avengers: Endgame would still  be the event movie of choice, and the babysitter-worthy date night pick, even alongside Detective PikachuJohn Wick 3AladdinGodzilla 2Rocket-man and Dark Phoenix. Presuming Avengers: Endgame earned $910 million domestic and $3 billion worldwide (which is possible), that will still mean that the film will have grossed 68% of its domestic haul and 74% of its global haul by the end of its second weekend.

Black Panther was a big hit last year and it made a lot of money for five weeks. The reign was a lot more complicated than Endgame‘s, but it was also close to beating Avatar. Black Panther topped the box office for five weekends (the first to do that since Avatar). Besides the point, Avengers Endgame marks one of the most iconic films of the year and for our generation.

“The Russo brothers’ poignant, powerful finale more than lives up to the hype: It’s a thrilling conclusion and a deeply emotional exploration of loss and love, duty and honor, friendship and family,” written by Sandie Angulo Chen of Common Sense Media.

This finale reminds us of movies gone by, celebrating the heroes we’ve come to know and giving them, I think, a fitting coda,” Paul Asay of Plugged In.

“I enjoyed the film! I’ve been waiting since the first Iron Man movie and now we got this!” Arwyn Albano, a junior from PCTI, said.

The movie will continue to be one of the greatest movies of all time and it will be the most iconic. ‘Avengers, assemble’.
