In the US and Canada, Avengers has so far racked up a whopping $60 million in grosses, squeezing past Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which until now had the highest-grossing Thursday opening with a box office net of $57 million. "Infinity War" made $39 million for its preview showings past year before going on to have the highest-grossing opening weekend in history at $258 million.

The highly anticipated film opened in theatres on April 24 in countries like Taiwan, China, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore, and South Korea.

Marvel's latest superhero flick Avengers: Endgame has notched up the highest opening day for a Hollywood film in India till date at ₹52 crore.

IMAX also enjoyed a record-breaking night, as "Endgame" grossed $4.8 million domestically in previews on 412 IMAX screens.

On Wednesday, Endgame was released in China, approximately two days before the United States release.

The domestic debut topped the previous opening night record of US$57 million set in 2015 by Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

The purple baddie Thanos (Josh Brolin) first hoisted the Infinity Gauntlet in last year's "Avengers: Infinity War". The domestic box office is down about 16% compared to past year.

What is all the more remarkable about the opening of Avengers: Endgame is the fact that it has taken this kind of record opening with the least number of screens. The 22nd film in the MCU, which marks the conclusion of its huge superhero universe, hit the big screens on April 26, 2019.

Like every other Marvel Studios movie before it, Avengers: Endgame is riddled with cameos and subtle callbacks to MCU past. The UK is the second-largest global market with $15.3 million, followed by South Korea at $14.2 million and Australia at $13.9 million.

The movie, helmed by Russo Brothers Joe and Anthony, features an ensemble of stars Robert Downey Jr., Brie Larson, Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner and Scarlett Johansson.
