Endgame managed to hold off all the new releases to stay on top for the third weekend in a row as it closes in on Avatar worldwide but Detective Pikachu almost managed to top it with the biggest opening ever for a video game based movie.
Avengers: Endgame continues to absolutely dominate the box office both domestically and worldwide as it closes in on the all-time box office record set by Avatar with over $2.188 billion made so far worldwide.
Going into this past weekend, no one had any doubt Avengers: Endgame would be massive but it’s still utterly stunning how huge the movie was, breaking basically every record that you could possibly measure.
The Curse of La Llorona took the top spot at the box office over the Easter weekend in the last weekend before Avengers: Endgame arrives to destroy every record in its path.
Shazam took the top spot at the box office again for its second weekend out as none of the new releases could top it, most of all the disastrous new Hellboy.
Shazam took the top spot at the box office, meeting WB’s expectations as did Pet Sematary for Paramount while Dumbo took a massive nose dive and Captain Marvel crossed over $1 billion worldwide.
Dumbo took the top spot at the box office but it was below both Disney’s estimates and industry estimates while Captain Marvel is closing in on $1 billion worldwide and Us had a typical horror movie drop from last weekend but remains strong.
Jordan Peele’s follow-up to Get Out blew away it’s predecessor, and almost every other horror movie ever, with a $70+ million debut and the largest opening for an original live-action film since Avatar.
Captain Marvel easily remained on top of the box office for another weekend, becoming the highest grossing movie of 2019 worldwide so far while Wonder Park and Five Feet Apart exceeded expectations and Captive State had one of the worst openings of all time.
As we’ve come to expect from the MCU, Captain Marvel had a massive opening, delivering the seventh best opening for the franchise and the sixth largest worldwide debut of all time.
