Well, it’s been a big weekend for Marvel, to put it mildly. Avengers: Endgame opened to rave reviews and smashed records around the world in its first weekend. It pulled in $350 million at the domestic box office (nearly as much as <em>Captain Marvel’s $413 million 8-week haul) and landed squarely in the top spot this week. Outside the US, the film earned another $850 million to score the first ever $1 billion opening in film history. For a better breakdown of Endgame’s opening, check out our post detailing every record it broke here.
Endgame may be breaking records but it’s still not the only movie in theaters this week. It’s not even the only Marvel movie in theaters because Captain Marvel came in second this weekend. Carol Danvers isn’t by any means the main attraction this weekend though as it only earned $8 million stateside. Its total US haul is now up to $413 million.
In third this week is The Curse of La Llorona. In a week when Marvel’s dominating, Llorona was still able to carve out another $7.5 million. It’s not much but it is enough to put the film’s domestic total up to over $40 million. The Conjuring spinoff has received mostly lukewarm reviews though so without strong word of mouth and the start of summer around the corner, I’d expect its run to be mostly over now.
Finally, rounding out the top five this week are Breakthrough and Shazam! In fourth, Breakthrough added another $6.3 million, bumping it’s total up over $25 million. Then, in fifth, Shazam! was able to pull in another $5.5 million for DC during Marvel’s record-smashing weekend. Its domestic haul is now up to $131 million.
