‘Avengers: Endgame’ Grosses $156 Million In One DayŚWith a Snap of Its Fingers

In one day, “Avengers: Endgame” became the fourth-highest-grossing movie of the year. With Thursday night's shows, and Friday's receipts, it grossed an estimated $156 million, shattering the single-day mark of $119 million set by “The Force Awakens” in 2015. That's a superpowered leap.á

There are only four movies that have ever grossed $100 million in a single day:

  • Avengers: Endgame (2019): $156.7 (est.)
  • Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015): $119.2
  • Avengers: Infinity War (2018): $106
  • Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017): $104.6

Back in your corner, “Star Wars.” Good luck.á

Of course they‘re all owned by the same studio now. Who’s the leader of the club that's made for you and me.á

I guess this is the way you do it. You make good movies and create a continuous universe. Over a decade. Then you give us the slambang two-part finale.

Where she stops, nobody knows. Box Office Mojo is assuming a $300 million opening weekend. Abroad, it's already grossed nearly half a billion.á
