It will not surprise you to know that Disney currently has nine of the biggest US box office weekends ever. Currently, Avengers: Infinite War is at the top of the list with an opening weekend of $ 258 million, followed by Star Wars The Awakening Force with US $ 248 million and Star Wars: The Last Jedi with US $ 220 million.
However, the upcoming Marvel film Avengers: End of the Game is currently crawling to make way for number one when it opens on April 26 with $ 282 million, which will likely lead to another $ 2 billion for Disney worldwide.
"Infinite War left the audience with a cinematic thriller, "Jeff Bock of Researcher Exhibitor Relations told Bloomberg. End of the game prediction. "The only thing that could really affect the opening weekend would be a race time that would exceed three hours, which has not yet been confirmed by Disney."
Mm. About that, Jeff? It may actually be more than 3 hours, although the final time has not been revealed. It's not that gamblers are not willing to sit down for a three-hour clash with Marvel superheroes – the vibe among fans is that End of the game could be 100 hours long and they would still buy a ticket – it's that movie theaters can not fit in so many shows a day when the movie opens.
Meanwhile, Captain Marvel is scheduled to open next week – Marvel's first hit on one of the first two box office punches in early 2019. Carol Danvers' solo solo solo pilot is gearing up for a box office of $ 118 to $ 160 million over the weekend, with full criticism for the coming days.
After End of the game, Spider-Man: Away From Home will open in the summer, and then we will be free of MCU for at least a year, which will become very strange after having three MCU films in 2017, three in 2018 and three in 2019, but maybe the audience is tired at the moment and needs the range. Quite possibly, this lull in Marvel's adventures will be the calm before the storm, but we will not discover the extent of the Phase 4 plans of the studio by the end of this year.
