‘Captain Marvel’ Powers Past $1 Billion at Global Box Office

Currently, Infinity War holds the opening weekend box office record in the US with about $257.7 million.

Tom Holland was not trusted to be given a script for "Avengers: Endgame", one of the directors of the film revealed.

Some box office analysts believe Avengers: Endgame could premiere between $750 million and $800 million worldwide, thanks to its Chinese debut.

During the Disney panel at this year's CinemaCon in Las Vegas, a full scene for Marvel Studios' highly-anticipated Avengers: Endgame was shown, giving attendees a glimpse of the group dynamic between Captain Marvel and the remaining Avengers.

Avengers: Infinity War opened to a massive $191 million last April, the biggest opening weekend in Chinese history, en route to $359.4 million in China, by far the biggest worldwide territory.

The Avengers: Infinity War grossed over $2 billion previous year, so while there are high expectations for The Avengers: Endgame, assuming Kevin Feige and the Russo brothers can come through for the fans, there shouldn't be anything to worry about.

According to Fandango, the latest installment of the Marvel franchise broke the record for the most pre-sale tickets purchased in 24 hours, a record that was previously held by Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Demand was so high for tickets that loading errors occurred for many, and those lucky enough to get to pages were met with 503 error codes and placed in waiting queues ranging anywhere from 40 minutes to four hours.

The movie is opening in all territories at the same time (though a day early in the UK) on April 26, meaning that it's feasible that the movie will be the first movie to break through $1 billion on its opening weekend. The site for AMC theaters went down for hours on Tuesday, and its mobile app was down even longer.
