AVENGERS: ENDGAME Just Earned An Astonishing $1.2B At The Worldwide Box Office

So, uh, did anyone go to the movies this weekend?

Well, we've been keeping tabs on this for several days now, but the final tallies are in:

Avengers: Endgame opened to $350M at the domestic box office, shattering the record previously established by Avengers: Infinity War (which opened to $257.6M last year) and a number of other opening-weekend records in the process. In other words: not only did the Russo Brothers and Marvel Studios top themselves, they did so by almost $100M.

But wait, there's more: in addition to that utterly insane domestic take, Avengers: Endgame also reaped another $859M overseas, which means Marvel Studios just opened a movie to $1.2B (that's billion, with a B) at the worldwide box office. To put that in perspective: Infinity War made just over $2B worldwide during its entire run.

We'll have a more in-depth examination of Avengers: Endgame's historic opening for you in the next day or two (it's gonna take a minute to break down the various records this thing has shattered), but for now, this is the news. It's Avengers: Endgame's world and we're just living in it.

Here's hoping that, wherever the Russo Brothers are right now, they're either celebrating recklessly or taking a much-deserved nap. Stay tuned.
