Last summer, Avengers: Infinity War broke all box office records by delivering the biggest opening weekend of all time. Now that Thanos has wiped out half of the universe and left people wanting to know how the Avengers reverse the decimation, the sequel is predicted to be even bigger.
According to a new article from Bloomberg, a box office researcher predicts that Avengers: Endgame is going to turn all previous box office records to dust:
“Avengers: Endgame,” the fourth film in the Marvel superhero series, is expected to set a weekend box-office record when it opens April 26. Researcher Exhibitor Relations predicts $282 million in North American ticket sales, topping the $258 million mark set last year by “Avengers: Infinity War.”
It’s still two months until release, and we don’t even have a second trailer yet, so this will obviously change as actual tracking comes in. But that’s a seriously impressive prediction and if Endgame comes close to reaching it, the top two opening weekends of all time will be Avengers movies.
