All The Box Office Records 'Avengers: Endgame' Has Broken
Avengers: Endgame shattered records. The film's weekend haul shows the box office can still make a record-amount of money in the era of streaming. The film just has to be a worthy cinematic event.
Avengers: Endgame is the culmination of the newly titled The Infinity Saga. Which is the first three phases of the Marvel Cinematic Universe starting off with 2008's Iron Man. (Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige is saying that the upcoming Spider-Man: Far From Home will end Phase Three so it is currently unclear if it will be a part of the Infinity Saga).
Thanks for The Hollywood Reporter and other sources we have all the box office records that were broken by Avengers: Endgame. Here are some of the startling records being broken.

Both Fandango and Atom Tickets noted that Avengers: Endgame had the biggest ticket pre-sale in history.

Biggest Opening/Single Day Domestically
On its first Friday the film earned $156.7 million, and Disney also holds the record in Thursday night previews with Endgame making $60 million. The only fair comparison is The Force Awakens on its first Friday with $119 million, including $57 million in previews.
Biggest Saturday Domestically

Most Showtimes in History
Avengers: Endgame had theater chains playing it in every theater and some theaters stayed open for a span of 72 hours with unique show times. Some locations were open 96 hours straight. AMC Theatres had at least 63,000 showings across its circuit.

The film was the widest release of all time opening in 4,662 theaters in North America beating out the likes of Despicable Me, Infinity War, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, and The Twilight Saga: Eclipse.
Biggest International Debut
Endgame defeated Fate of the Furious with an insane $859 million debut.
Biggest Global Launch
Avengers: Endgame made $1.2 billion worldwide on its first weekend. A BILLION in its first weekend. This was thought as unfathomable at one point.
It will be fascinating to see if Avengers: Endgame keeps up the pace or if it falters in the coming weeks. It is safe to assume though that the film will get multiple viewings at the theater.
