Avengers: Endgame scores biggest box office opening in Singapore
The previous record holder for a five-day opening was 2018’s Avengers: Infinity War.
It’s official – Avengers: Endgame has achieved the biggest five-day opening weekend of all time in Singapore.
The final Avengers instalment took in a whopping S$7.52 million between Apr 24 and 28. This eclipses the record held by Avengers: Infinity War last year, which raked in over a million dollars less at S$6.13 million. Before Infinity War, the record for a five-day opening was 2011’s Transformers: Dark Of The Moon.
Endgame’s strong showing locally is keeping pace with worldwide opening weekend figures – it’s the No 1 movie in at least 54 countries and has smashed global box office records with US$1.2 billion worldwide.
The three-hour war against Thanos also saw chart-topping numbers in North America with US$350 million at the tills, obliterating the previous record-holder, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which made US$248 million in opening-weekend sales.
At the rate it’s going, Endgame has a good chance of zooming past Infinity War – currently Singapore’s biggest film – which had a total run of S$16.2 million.
