Weekend Box Office: May 3 - May 5, 2019
Well, it was an easy prediction last week to make that 'Avengers: Endgame' would repeat as the #1 movie at the Box Office! Not only did it repeat, it decimated the competition like a snap of the fingers wearing the Infinity Gauntet & breaking more records along the way.
In its second weekend 'Avengers: Endgame' came in 1st place with $147M and in only 10 days earned $2.2B (yes that's Billion with a "B" lol) moving ahead of 'Titanic' as the 2nd highest grossing movie of ALL TIME worldwide! Just insane, 'Titanic' was in theatres for 41 Weekends, EndGame did it in 2 Weekends!
Rounding out the other top spots this past weekend were a lot of new movies hitting theatres for the first time, unfortunately they chose to release it around 'Avengers: Endgame' so that obviously reflected on their totals. Second place with $10.8M went to a thriller starring Dennis Quaid called 'The Intruder'. Coming in 3rd with $9.7M was the comedy 'Long Shot' starring Seth Rogen & Charlize Theron. 4th place was a new Animated feature 'Uglydolls' with $8.6M and 5th place with $4.2M was 'Captain Marvel'. 'Captain Marvel' still in the top 5 after 9 weeks is pretty impressive and now has a domestic total of $420M!
There are a few movies opening this coming weekend, the only one worth noting is 'Pokémon Detective Pikachu' voiced by Ryan Reynolds. It will crack the top 5, it will most likely open in 2nd place, however nothing is stopping the juggernaut that is 'Avengers: Endgame'. We can easily predict it will Three-peat as your #1 movie at the Box Office again this coming Weekend! In fact, it might just come close if not beat 'Avatar' to become the highest grossing movie of all time worldwide! Sorry James Cameron but 'Avengers: Endgame' sunk 'Titanic' last weekend and they're headed to the moon Pandora this weekend to jump ahead of 'Avatar'! Only time will tell how much EndGame will earn, but there seems to be no stopping it anytime soon.
