I’ll check it out in a month once the crowds die down. I like going into a movie on a Monday morning with a half empty theater.  Infinity War was good but wasn’t even the best MCU movie to me but still looking forward to watching this.

Same could be argued for just about anything we do in life. Interesting perspective considering you have 28k+ posts here in 6 years, with an average of 13 per day. Like you said, whatever floats your boat. 

13 posts per day over 6 years about what... 10 minutes-30 tops

2.5 hours x 90 times in less than a year 

yeah sorry I hurt your feelings in the process 

enjoy that popcorn this weekend

Yeah,  out of the gate really fast.  Seems like 900 mil opening weekend is likely ( is it even feasible to hit 1 bill opening weekend). Seems destined to hit 2 billion by third weekend. Can it be the first movie to 3 billion. The early numbers are just staggering. The movie is on 4600 screens and theaters want to add more screens but available screens are running out. Looks like in some areas there are just not enough seats to accomidate the demand for opening weekend.

 

I also saw reports of some theaters basically staying open overnight so they can have 1 and 2 AM showings with showing s being added at like 6:30 AM for Friday and Saturday morning and those are selling out.

 

I even know several people leaving work early or taking the day off to see this movie tomorrow.

 

Just crazy.

Didn’t hurt my feelings, just pointing out that we’re all wasting our time in one way or another. No need to be judgmental about it.

In 5 days, it will have passed up Venom and Aquaman. And soon enough, exceed Infinity War. :whatthe:

Yesterday was technically the "opening day" for Avengers: Endgame, even though time zone magic meant that yesterday was technically China’s second day for the MCU blockbuster. The film earned an $80 million “pure Wednesday” gross, which is second only to Monster Hunt 2’s “pure opening day” gross of $86 million last year. That said, the record-crushing $28 million in midnight previews pushed Avengers 4 to $107.2 million over its whole opening day. That is the second-biggest single day gross for any movie outside of Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ $119 million North American opening day back in December of 2015.

 

Including a $47.6 million Thursday in China, the MCU flick has earned $216.6 million thus far as it prepares for a record-crushing bow in North America (over/under $280 million?), China (over/under $300 million in five days?) and around the world. Avengers: Infinity War opened overseas last year with $382 million. That doesn’t count China (which opened a couple of weeks later) and obviously doesn’t include North America. Offhand, a $400 million “not China” overseas launch plus a $300 million Chinese bow will put the film at (presuming at least $260 million in North America) at $960 million.

I have a feeling it will happen sooner than expected with these results so far.

With the overly-positive critic reviews, which does influence some people's desire to see a movie in-theaters, I think this movie's gonna break-and-make records that won't be touched for awhile.

Also, what are these guys smokin'?

"The mega-franchise's biggest fans will likely embrace the waterlogged sentimentality that pervades the entire three-hour affair. But where does that leave those of us who just wanted a good movie?"

This is the 22nd film of the franchise. If you're not invested in seeing it because of the preceding films, then what exactly are you doing..?

"I might be tempted to describe Infinity War and Endgame as a couple of the worst and ideologically vacuous blockbuster movies ever made - except I'm no longer sure they should even be called movies."

What!?

Every movie that has gone on to become a cultural touchstone has had its detractors upon release, Wizard of Oz, The Godfather, you name it.
