For nearly a decade, it was impossible for any movie to beat the $ 2.79 billion worldwide box office record.
Indeed, James Cameron had to prevail as a blockbuster: Avatar Cameron Titanic with a worldwide lifetime of $ 2.1
It only took Disney's Avengers: Endgame 10T age to defeat the world record of the Titanic but when it comes to sell Avatar it takes a long time to complete (maybe months), although the final of Anthony and Joe Russo has only $ 37 million left since yesterday.
Spider-Man Far From Home Review: Spidey And Friends Experience an Unequaled Holiday in Europe
Today, Disney brings Avengers: Endgame to 2,025 canvases in US and Canada, and back to theaters in about 38 offshore markets. The new version features a Stan Lee homage, a Hulk-deleted scene and a short clip during the credits of Sony / MCUs Spider-Man: Far From Home. It's an interesting move by Marvel: They kept some powder dry, not to put it on the DVD, but to put it in a movie release.
You would think the re-release would be enough to Endgame about the bump and past avatar. Unfortunately, this is not to be expected, and if it happens, it would shock many in distribution circles. Although Endgame will bring $ 10 to $ 15 million worldwide next week, many say that the final $ 22 to $ 27 million will be a harsh slap in the event that Disney agrees Another reissue in the movies decides to outnumber the record of the mega-franchise filmmaker they inherited from Fox. Some in distribution circles even think that Endgame will not ultimately become an out-peg avatar.
Essentially, the Endgame offered an opportunity to bask in the sunlight of Sony's MCU title Spider-Man: Far From Home which opens on Tuesday and Expected to Own the Independence Day Week at $ 125 to $ 160 Million. As far as we can hear, the republication of Endgame was not part of a larger D-Day Disney distribution strategy designed to overthrow the Avatar record.
We have a similar cash phenomenon at Captain Marvel in the shadow of Endgame s massive opening record weekend ($ 357.1 million domestically) saw $ 1.22 billion worldwide.) During this time, the first female MCU movie on its eighth weekend at the box office rose to $ 8.3 million. Dollar in 2nd place After Endgame Captain Marvel earned another 17.4 million USD worldwide (12.9 million USD domestic, 4.5 million USD in Overseas) as the fans hurried back and forth between the films. Far From Home was scheduled for Endgame, is the Expectation for a similar B.O. Halo effect with Endgame. Weekend estimates starting today, see Avengers: Endgame at $ 6.3 million on Weekend 10, an increase of 218% for an ongoing domestic total of $ 842.1 million through Sunday.
The new cutback of this weekend of
Endgame is primarily a domestic piece that is largely driven by a digital marketing campaign. Abroad, the picture is played in Latin America (Mexico), UK / Ireland, Germany, Spain, Russia and some Asia-Pacific countries, including Australia / New Zealand and Japan.
So, if there's only a handful of cash [19459003Endgame must defeat Avatar, why is it so hard to get?
In essence, it has to do with the fact that Endgame lags far behind avatar in lucrative countries outside the US and China. Endgame generated 53% of its global gross in the US / Canada and China, while these two territories generated only 34% of Avatar ( Avatar
) worldwide ticket sales & # 39; s global republication in 2010 was $ 33.2 million, which means the Cameron off-shore image made up more ground. Forget that Endgame returned to China, where it raised massive $ 614.3 million (for $ 204 million from Avatar the country already had an emerging multiplex infrastructure in 2009 ). China also has a 30-day playing time for US images and Endgame has not received an extension. Not to mention the rampant piracy in China, it would not be advisable to bring back Endgame .
Avatar recorded such high records in important countries, Endgame could hardly beat them, ie France ($ 175.6 million versus $ 59.3 million), Japan ( USD 172 million compared to USD 54.7 million), Germany (USD 162.3 million compared to USD 63 million), Russia (USD 117 million compared to USD 45.6 million), Spain (USD 110 million compared to EUR $ 32.5 million) and Italy ($ 83.5 million versus $ 33.8 million). Another reason why this time you should not expect so much from Endgame in these areas is that the movie has already been played and screens have been promised for the next round of local and Hollywood courts. Much of the success of Avatar overseas as in the US and Canada had to do with the fact that 3D was a fad.
Stateside, Force Awakens owns the domestic B.O. Crown with $ 936.7 million, after Avatar had already beaten the US / Canadian record ($ 760.5 million) three years ago. Endgame occupies second place on the domestic B.O. List Behind Force Awakens has no chance to overthrow it.
Some sources believe Endgame could make more money later this summer when Disney plays it as a double feature with The Lion King. It's also not uncommon for Majors to re-release their big blockbusters for a final hurray on Labor Day weekend.
Many, however, say that Disney-Marvel was making the difference in Endgame [19459004reallywantedtobalancewithSonyandplaythefinalasofficialdoublewith Spider-Man: Far From Home next week. However, the films are not officially billed together as Sony controls its own ship on Far From Home. Nevertheless, there is no coincidence, especially in a domestic market where Disney products are offered dominates the majority of screens. So do not be surprised if you find both Endgame and Far From Home in the same multiplex near you.
