In it’s opening weekend, the fourth and final installment in the ‘Avengers’ series and the conclusion to the Infinity Saga, Avengers: Endgame opened at $1.2 billion worldwide and $350 million domestically, besting The Fate of the Furious and Endgame’s predecessor Avenger’s Infinity War for the respective titles.

Endgame smashed additional records on Friday for the biggest domestic opening day collecting $156 million and has most recently set the record in China for the highest-grossing opening weekend of any film and of all time.

News of Endgame’s feats comes as a shock to no one as the culmination of 21 films over 11 years received a considerable amount of hype and was highly anticipated by longtime fans. The film was set to be the comic book movie event of the century, an event that no fan was going to miss out on seeing the opening weekend.

And, based on an overwhelmingly positive response, it is safe to say that the movie delivered. Without giving much away, the film was an emotional experience of cosmic proportions, a love letter full of fan-service, call-backs to previous films, references to comics, and the wrapping up of loose ties.

Avengers: Endgame eulogized a phenomenal decade of films and turned the page on a blank slate and a new era.

“Woah,” said a dehydrated Matty Mendez walking out from the theater.
