Much like how Thanos snapped his fingers to wipe out half of the population of the entire universe in an instant, the much-awaited release of Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Endgame obliterated Philippine box-office records on its opening day.
Bringing a decade’s worth of action and storytelling to an epic conclusion, Avengers: Endgame smashed local opening day box office records as it opened with P205,676,345 (US$ 3,880,685) in 970 screens, with select cinemas starting at 6:01am and some holding 24-hour screenings.
The fourth film in the Avengers franchise and the 22nd film in the grand Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), Avengers: Endgame broke the opening day record of 2018’s Avengers: Infinity War, making it the biggest opening of a Marvel film in Philippine cinemas to date.
Weeks prior to the opening day, local malls have already started selling tickets for Avengers: Endgame and Filipino Marvel superfans showed their love and support for the Infinity saga movie as opening day tickets were almost immediately sold out.
Avengers: Endgame is now showing in Philippine cinemas nationwide. Join the conversations online at #AvengersEndgame and #MarvelPH.
