In the United States, the site broke its own previous single-day record from December 25, 2015, the opening weekend of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, in just eight hours.

Earlier this week, The Hollywood Reporter published an article assessing the latest box office projections for Avengers: Endgame.

While the Russo Brothers still have a couple more weeks to make some last-minute adjustments, it sounds like this might well be the final figure, making Endgame roughly 32 minutes longer than last year's Infinity War.

Some box office analysts believe Avengers: Endgame could premiere between $750 million and $800 million worldwide, thanks to its Chinese debut.

New footage from the hugely anticipated Avengers: Endgame was shown during the CinemaCon event this week in Las Vegas, and it suggests Captain Marvel may play a major role. It's thought that due to strong ticket sales of The Avengers: Endgame, the record will be shattered by the follow up to Infinity War that sees the remaining Marvel heroes take on Thanos in an attempt to undo the Great Titans Snap that killed off half the universe. Turns out, even the high end was too low - the movie breezed past that for an opening week domestic box office of $257 million. Advance ticket sales for Endgame brought websites for some cinema chains like AMC grinding to a halt, while ticket site Fandango declared a few days ago that the movie smashed the company's all-time single-day record for ticket sales.

The movie is opening in all territories at the same time (though a day early in the UK) on April 26, meaning that it's feasible that the movie will be the first movie to break through $1 billion on its opening weekend.
