It was a snap. The 22nd film from Marvel Studios shattered global box office records during its long opening weekend, raking in $1.2 billion worldwide. Endgame hit the billion-dollar milestone in just five days, smashing Infinity War’s record of 11 days. In the U.S. alone, the final film of Marvel’s Phase Three took $350 million — another record that far exceeded already-ambitious projections of $300 million.
Where else was the movie a hit? China accounted for roughly one-third of the global box office, posting $330 million in ticket sales.
