Box Office Report For April 26-28


Welcome back to the weekly box office report! Each and every Sunday, expect a look at what made the most money in theaters, as well as just how all of the new releases fared. This week, it was all about Avengers: Endgame. We knew it was going to be massive, but did it actually set records? Yes, it did, and frankly, it set basically all the records. How did it do and how much did it make? Let us take a look right now at just that…

Putting forth easily the biggest opening weekend of all time, the top spot went to Avengers: Endgame, making history in the process. An estimated $350 million just domestically makes it the largest weekend ever, blowing by Avengers: Infinity War by nearly $100 million, accounting for 90% of the cinematic market share as well, which is insane. Globally, it shot past the $1 billion mark, which is actually something it can approach domestically too, if you can believe it. The Marvel Cinematic Universe gets bigger and bigger, and if you read my review, better and better.

Impressive, right? And just wait, next weekend should be another huge one for it as well!

Coming in at number two, buoyed by Avengers: Endgame, was actually Captain Marvel, which shot back up to the runner up spot with another $8 million. The movie has now made over $400 million domestically, clearly giving the MCU a hit. It may not be the Endgame numbers, but folks who came for the new effort certainly opted to take this one in again as well.

Among indie/smaller debuts, White Crow opened up on just five screens and took in right around 80K, while Carmine Street Guitars turned a single screen into 7K. Clearly, films big and small were staying out of Marvel’s way…

Here now is what the top ten looked like at the box office for this weekend:

1. Avengers: Endgame – $350,000,000

2. Captain Marvel – $8,051,000

3. The Curse of La Llorona – $7,500,000
