Marvel Studios’ “Avengers: Endgame” is on track to make ridiculous money when it opens next month, just as Chinese authorities have given the film the go-ahead to open in the Middle Kingdom on April 24th.
With that extra cash flow coming in, the film is said to be tracking for a global opening weekend of around $800 million if not more.
‘Infinity War’ opened to $258m domestically and $383M internationally, and that was before the further $199M opening in China arrived two weeks later.
With pretty much the entire world now getting this follow-up on the same weekend, the money looks set to flow.
Speaking of ‘Endgame,’ Joe Russo recently spoke about the differences between it and ‘Infinity War’ telling Box-Office Pro:
“I will say that the movie is definitely unique in tone. It has its own spirit that’s different than Infinity War, which is why I was keen for us to separate the movies. Of course, we’re handing off narratives and it’s been serialized over 22 movies.
But, it’s different tonally than Infinity War and it is told from a different point of view. It was important for us in our minds as film directors to separate those two because we do not want to make the same movie twice, and ways that you can differentiate films are through tone and point of view.”
“Avengers: Endgame” opens in cinemas April 26th.
