‘Avengers: Endgame’ Already Breaking Box Office Records Overseas As Film Grosses Almost $170 Million In First Day

Just about a month ago, we reported that some box office analysts thought that “Avengers: Endgame” could hit the coveted $1 billion mark after its first weekend. The previous opening weekend record was held by “Avengers: Infinity War,” with $640 million. Obviously, for ‘Endgame’ to reach $1 billion during that time period, it’ll have to do a lot better. And judging by the first day’s box office stats overseas, it is doing a lot better already.

Avengers: Endgame Breaks Records Overseas With $169 Million Opening Day

Avengers: Endgame has now completed its first day in various territories across the world, and to the surprise of no one, the film is getting off to a phenomenally strong start.

Deadline reports that after one day in cinemas, the Avengers: Infinity War sequel’s box office total sits at $169 million. This figure can mostly be attributed to the movie’s record-breaking first day in China, where the flick managed to take in $107.5 million. The next best Wednesday launch was in Korea, where Endgame broke the all-time record for best non-holiday opening day with its $8.4 million haul.

In all markets, Endgame is tracking ahead of Infinity War – and, in some cases, by a pretty wide margin. In France, for example, Endgame outperformed last year’s release by 64%. Over in Germany, meanwhile, the film was a whopping 95% ahead, but the biggest improvement was in Hong Kong, where Endgame was up 98% on Infinity War.

Bradley Cooper Turns Down ‘Star Is Born’ Tour Idea, But Has Great Plan for a Lady Gaga Reunion

Bradley Cooper Turns Down ‘Star Is Born’ Tour Idea, But Has Great Plan for a Lady Gaga Reunion
Ever since Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga triumphed at the Oscars with their live rendition of “Shallow,” fans of both performers and their blockbuster romance “A Star Is Born” have wondered if the duo might ever team up and hit the road for a live show. Cooper performed “Shallow” once before with Gaga at her Las Vegas residency, so it wasn’t entirely out of the question to think he might agree to some more live shows. Pairing Cooper and Gaga would certainly result in sellouts. Unfortunately, Cooper isn’t pursuing a side career as a touring music artist.

During an appearance on “Ellen,” Cooper shut down the “A Star Is Born” live tour idea while offering up an alternative option that sounds incredibly exciting. “What I thought would be a cool thing to do, maybe one night, is a live reading of the movie, of the script, and sing

According to This Wild Endgame Theory, Thanos's Snap Didn't Do What We All Think

  • Popsugar
It seems like it was only yesterday when Marvel broke our hearts into itty-bitty pieces in Avengers: Infinity War, not unlike what became of half of the Avengers after Thanos's snap. With the arrivals of Ant-Man and the Wasp and Captain Marvel, we get closer to figuring out what's going to unfold in Endgame. The widely anticipated movie will show the Avengers figuring out a way to bring back their friends and defeat Thanos once and for all. Which is to say, we're going into the film with the assumption that Thanos wiped out half of the living population in the universe - that half of the superheroes we know and love are gone.

But what if no one is actually dead? The Marvel Cinematic Universe is so deeply entrenched in mystical magic and science fiction that this isn't too far of a leap to make. Read on to explore

If You Thought Infinity War Was Long, Just Wait Until You See Avengers: Endgame

If You Thought Infinity War Was Long, Just Wait Until You See Avengers: Endgame
Now that we have an official trailer, poster, and release date for Avengers: Endgame, it's time to start preparing ourselves for the mental and emotional stress the movie is going to put us through on April 26. Avengers: Infinity War was already a roller coaster, but considering everything we're expecting to happen in the epic fourth Avengers installment, it's going to take a while for us to recover. And because Marvel is so relentless in their endeavor to completely wreck us, Avengers: Endgame is the longest running Marvel Studios movie ever.

The film was still going through the editing process as of Nov. 8 with a runtime of three hours. Now, a few months later, it's been confirmed on AMC's website that Endgame will be a lengthy three hours and two minutes long.

Since that time is indeed true, it takes the crown - or gauntlet - as the longest Marvel movie so far.

‘Avengers: Endgame’ Directors Joe & Anthony Russo Address Inclusion Of First Openly Gay Character In Marvel Superhero Film
Mild Spoiler: The preoccupation on today’s opener Avengers: Endgame will be about a near billion first week gross fueled by 24 hour showings, its assault on the all time box office record books and the resetting of the Marvel Comics Universe. The film also breaks ground on a cultural level. It is a small moment but a milestone nonetheless in such a global appeal blockbuster. Avengers: Endgame introduces the first openly gay character to ever appear in a Marvel movie.

That character isn’t a superhero, and he is played in an early scene by Joe Russo, who co-directed with brother Anthony Russo. The character is an average guy who is part of a support group of people trying to move on from the grief of losing loved ones who vanished at the end of Avengers: Infinity War at the hands of Thanos.

Tom Holland Explains Why He Wasn’t At The Avengers: Endgame Premiere

While the McU’s dead characters have been mostly absent from Avengers: Endgame press events, one major exception was the film’s world premiere in Los Angeles earlier this week, where an array of snap victims showed up to support the Avengers: Infinity War sequel. Even stars like Natalie Portman and Linda Cardellini, who haven’t featured in a Marvel movie in years, managed to make the event, and yet Spider-Man himself, Tom Holland, was a no-show.

Nonetheless, the star of the upcoming Spider-Man: Far From Home still took the time to share a quick a video, in which he explained why he wasn’t at the premiere, before offering a big thanks to his fans and collaborators.

“Hey everyone. I just wanted to do a little message and say sorry I wasn’t at the premiere last night,” Holland said. “I’m here in Alabama…no I’m not I’m in Atlanta shooting…

Stan Lee’s Avengers: Endgame Cameo’s Been Revealed

Spoilers to follow.

In November of last year, we lost legendary comic book creator Stan Lee, though as we’ve been told, he was still able to shoot a few more of his patented cameos. Last month’s Captain Marvel, for example, brought us an unusually meta take on the tradition, as Lee appeared as himself reading for his part in Mallrats.

With the upcoming Avengers: Endgame, though, Lee is finally bringing his run of cameos to a close and we now have all the details on how he factors into things. Admittedly, it’s not his best or most memorable appearance in an McU movie – or any movie, for that matter – but it’s certainly nice to see him on screen one final time.

The cameo occurs when Cap and Iron Man travel back to 1940 to retrieve one of the Infinity Stones. Specifically, they head to a military base

The Russo Brothers Explain How ‘Avengers: Endgame’ Was Inspired By Antonioni-Level Darkness

The Russo Brothers Explain How ‘Avengers: Endgame’ Was Inspired By Antonioni-Level Darkness
[Editor’s note: Spoilers ahead for “Avengers: Endgame.”]

Directors Joe and Anthony Russo have come a long way since “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” (2014) in harnessing the power of VFX and effectively integrating it into their four-film McU journey. Throughout the last five years, they’ve taken advantage of tech advancements in lighting, surfacing, rendering, compositing, and facial animation that have benefited Marvel’s seamless, photo-real, visual virtuosity. The finale demanded that they deploy all the skills they’ve learned to get the most from the wide range of challenging effects sequences they faced in one three-hour movie.

To bolster the action for “Winter Soldier,” the Russos led off with Industrial Light & Magic’s revamped, fully weaponized Helicarrier (the biggest CG model in Ilm’s history). Then, in “Captain America: Civil War” (2016), they choreographed the intricate airport battle (also handled by Ilm) featuring newcomer Spider-Man (Tom Holland), Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman), and Ant-Man (Paul Rudd).

New Avengers: Endgame Promo Teases The End Of Hawkeye’s Journey

In the words of Tony Stark himself, part of the journey is the end.

And after 22 movies in the space of a decade, Avengers: Endgame truly feels like the end of an era. So while Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige considers Spider-Man: Far From Home to be something of an epilogue to McU Phase 3, Endgame looks set to bring the curtain down on a cinematic journey the likes of which we’ve never seen before. And are unlikely to see again anytime soon.

Case in point: this all-new Endgame promo, which essentially heralds the end of Hawkeye’s journey. Introduced as a brainwashed agent in 2012’s The Avengers, Clint Barton soon became a fan-favorite among McU fans, who mourned his absence from Avengers: Infinity War.

But fear not; Hawkeye returns in Avengers: Endgame and sure enough, his transition into Ronin has sent the Internet into a tizzy.

The official synopsis from Stx Entertainment reads: “’21 Bridges’ follows an NYPD detective (Boseman), who is thrust into a citywide manhunt for a pair of cop killers after uncovering a massive and unexpected conspiracy. As the night unfolds, lines become blurred on who he is pursuing, and who is in pursuit of him.
