Updated July 1, 2019: Avengers: Endgame earned an estimated $7.8 million globally this past weekend with its "Bring Back" re-release to put it just $27m shy of Avatar's all-time international box office record ($2.78 billion), according to The Hollywood Reporter. The weekend receipts breaks down to $5.5m domestically and $2.3m outside of North America.

With a new $2.76 billion total, Endgame has surpassed Avatar's first box office run but when you factor in the fact the James Cameron film was also re-released to earn an extra $33m in 2010, it's still shy of the record.

Updated May 27, 2019 at 10:05 a.m. Eastern: With the latest weekend over, Avengers: Endgame is now $110 million away from matching Avatar's all time global box office record.

In figures released Sunday evening by Deadline, Avengers: Endgame has earned $1.879B internationally and $799m domestically - for a total of $2.678B worldwide.

Endgame won't be getting any help from China to surpass Avatar however, as the film's four-week run in the Middle Kingdom has ended - with no sign of it being renewed. To date, the fourth Avengers film earned $629.1m in China.

Updated May 9, 2019 at 3:24 p.m. Eastern: Avengers: Endgame came away with $22.1 million at the foreign box office on Wednesday, according to Forbes. That brings the foreign total to $1.65 billion - and the global (including North America) to $2.303b.

That $2.303b puts Endgame as the second-highest grossing movie at the global box office (unadjusted for inflation), behind only 2009's Avatar ($2.788b).

Updated May 3, 2019Boxoffice.com reports Avengers: Endgame made an estimated $100 million at the foreign box office Thursday, upping its total to $1.3119 billion, #4 all-time in foreign box office. 

With an estimated $474m domestic total through Thursday, that gives Endgame a new estimated global total of $1.7856b, #5 all-time in the combined category. It now just has Avengers: Infinity War ($2.0484b), Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($2.0682b), and James Cameron's super-duo of Titanic ($2.1875b) and Avatar ($2.7880b) in front of it heading into just its second weekend. 

Like its domestic ceiling calculation, Endgame's global endgame is that it'll certainly wind up no less than #2 on the all-time chart, achieving that goal in a matter of days. But analysts are also cautious as to whether it can ultimately catch Avatar.

Updated May 2, 2019Boxoffice.com reports Avengers: Endgame made an estimated $157.8 million at the foreign box office Wednesday, including $70.4m in China, upping its total to $1.2118 billion. 

Add in an estimated $25.2m domestically Wednesday for a new $452.3m total, and you got $1.6641 billion globally, good for #6 on the all-time unadjusted-for-inflation global box office chart, passing The Avengers $1.5188b total. 

Updated May 1, 2019: Boxoffice.com is pegging Avengers: Endgame Tuesday's overseas haul at $105.3 million, including $39.9m from China. 

That would up the film's foreign total to an estimated $1.045 billion. Combined with its domestic take of $426.9m (after Disney's own slightly lower Tuesday estimate of $32.9m) and that gives Endgame an estimated $1.4809b worldwide through Tuesday, good for eighth place on the all-time unadjusted-for-inflation chart, passing of Avengers: Age of Ultron ($1.405b).

There are also reports that Endgame's China totals are in excess of $75m on Wednesday, May 1, the start of a four-day holiday in the country. So the remainder of the week's foreign totals may climb even higher. 

Updated April 30, 2019Avengers: Endgame made an estimated $82.2 million at the international box office Monday, including an estimated $18.6m in China, raising its foreign total to an estimated $948.7m. It will likely pass $1 billion when the final Tuesday figures are calculated. 

The total includes a reported $387m in China through its first week, already passing the lifetime run of Avengers: Infinity War ($360m) and it will reportedly pass 2017's The Fate of the Furious ($393m) as China's all-time highest grossing import film Wednesday May 1, on its eighth day of release.

With an estimated $36.7m at the domestic box office Monday for a $393.9m total, Endgame's global total stands at an estimated $1.34 billion.  


Updated April 27, 2019: Boxoffice.com is reporting Avengers: Endgame has earned $487m through Friday overseas, which already tops The Fate of the Furious' record overseas weekend debut of $443m set in 2017.

Endgame's $643.7m global total which includes the domestic figure $156.7m already breaks Avengers: Infinity War's global weekend debut record of $641m.

...with Saturday and Sunday still to go. 

Updated April 26, 2019: Avengers: Endgame has earned an estimated $365 million at the global box office by the close of business Thursday, according to Box Office.

The Russo brothers' film took in $60m in North America on its Thursday preview night (which we wrote about in more detail here).

Internationally, Endgame grossed $136m on Thursday - for $305m overall from those markets.

China led the way with $107.5m - slightly higher than Disney's estimates from Wednesday (as seen below). Infinity War previously opened on a Friday in the Middle Kingdom.

Here's some selected Endgame openings, compared to 2018's Avengers: Infinity War first day openings in the same markets: South Korea with $8.4m ($6.5m); Australia, $7m ($6.7M); France, $6m ($3.9m), Italy, $5.8m ($3.9m); Philippines, $3.9m ($2.7m).

Original Story: Avengers: Endgame has already garnered a record-breaking $107.2 million at China's box office, according to early estimates from the Walt Disney Company (via The Hollywood Reporter). With Tuesday midnight screenings alone bringing in $28.2m in China, Endgame's day 1 Chinese total trumps the previous record-holder for biggest first day ever in China, Monster Hunt 2 with $85m.

Endgame reportedly accounted for 99% of all movie tickets sold in China on Wednesday, with "many top multiplexes" showing the film on all of their screens - some beginning at 15 and 30 minute intervals.

For reference, Avengers: Infinity War opened in China with $76m on day one, followed by a $191m opening weekend, and a $359.5m gross for the country.

According to the Hollywood trade, movie industry analysts are expecting Endgame to become the first North American film to break $500m in China ultimately. One of China's movie ticket sellers, Moayan, projects to take in $521m by the end of its run.

Internationally, Endgame was tracking for a $270m opening weekend - but THR says some sources predict it to exceed $300m.
