Monday's Headlines | Avenger: Endgame Smash Record

Avengers: Endgame crushed the opening day box office record set Star Wars: The Force Awakens in 2015. Endgame made an estimated $157.5 million on Friday, including a record-setting $60 million in Thursday night previews. That beats the $119.1 million record set by The Force Awakens by more than $38 million.

Endgame, the finale to Marvel Studios’ decade-long Infinity Saga, is benefiting from having the widest box office opening of all time. Projections for Endgame’s opening weekend total are now in the record-shattering $349-$356 million range. The film may also have the first $1 billion opening weekend at the global box office.
