"Endgame" is going to be big.
Avengers: Infinity War currently stands triumphant as a reigning box office champion, holding it down as one of the highest grossing films of all time. As of now, the Marvel hit sits at number four in overall worldwide intake, behind Black Panther, Avatar, and Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Now, with the conclusion set to arrive on April 26th, projections already indicate that Avengers: Endgame will surpass its predecessor, and quite possibly those that stand above it. After all, Infinity War ended on a cliffhanger, which bodes well for the upcoming chapter.

As it happens, Bloomberg' Researcher Exhibitor Relations has already projected the opening (domestic)weekend numbers: $282 million. Should those projections become reality, Endgame will be well on the way in shattering many existing records. Though some worries have arisen concerning the expansive (and still unconfirmed) three-hour runtime, it seems likely that audiences will be happy to sit through whatever the Endgame brings.
In short, those keeping score can expect Endgame to find massive success at the box-office, and possibly dethrone a few reigning champions in the process. Are you looking to buy a ticket?
