Avengers Crushes Box-Office Records
Superhero fans came from far and wide to see the epic finale of the Avengers movie series, Endgame, racking up an unbelievable $1.2bn in global sales. Mind-blowing stuff!
The blockbuster film annihilated previous records set by Endgame’s predecessor, Infinity War, collecting a handy $330m in US theatres compared to the previous record of $257.7m set in 2018. Movie theatre chains have been holding some locations open for as long as 72 hours straight to cater to the unbelievable demand…and it may just be getting started!
Tickets have even been seen listed for as much as $25,000 a pop on ebay and signs have even been put up around London urging subway riders to hold off on spoiling the movie for others. This film is just the first of a few major titles to be released this year by Disney…And investors are loving it!
If the likes of The Lion King and Toy Story 4 follow a similar path as Endgame, Disney will be in for the best year in its history. Disney’s stock price is up 26.30% this month alone and may be set for more gains if it can maintain its unparalleled hot streak of record-breaking cinematic content.
What a time to be alive!
