How staggering were ‘Avengers: Endgame’ numbers? Take a look

In just its first several days, “Avengers: Endgame” has broken just about every notable box office record.

So, did you see “Avengers: Endgame” this weekend?

If not, you might just be one of a select few. According to the numbers, the Marvel super hero flick busted just about every box office record there was.

In just its first three (OK, four counting Thursday night) days, the film brought in $350 million in the United States. And worldwide, it grabbed another $859 million. That’s a grand total of $1.2 billion.

Box Office Mojo, which keeps track of movie numbers, breaks films down by just every imaginable stat. “Endgame” claimed the record in 34 areas, including Worldwide Openings, Foreign Opening Weekends, Opening Day Gross, Opening Weekends, and Top 3-Day Grosses.

“Endgame’s” weekend domestic total beat out the No. 2 film (last year’s “Avengers: Infinity War”) by $92.3 million. That’s more than some movies — like “The Karate Kid,” “Braveheart,” and “Die Hard” — made during their entire run.

To see just how crazy the numbers are, among all movies in the Time Travel genre, Marvel’s latest film is tops. That’s right, in a few scant days of release, “Avengers: Endgame” had made more money than all other time travel films.

“The Terminator” movies? Maybe combined, but not individually.

“Back to the Future”? Nope. Not even I and II put together made as much as “Endgame.”

Yeah, but what about … Nope.

When it comes to movies released in the past 356 days, “Endgame” ranks No. 4 — with only “Captain Marvel,” “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom,” and “Incredibles 2” beating it out.

In fact, the movie is already at No. 18 on the All-Time Worldwide chart. (Although, to be fair it’s probably moved up a few spots by now.) The top slot belongs to “Avatar” with its $2.78 billion lifetime haul. “Endgame” is certainly gunning for that record, too.

Although there’s one Box Office Mojo chart where “Endgame” ranks the lowest: The Slowest to $100 million. It ranks dead last.

Can’t win ’em all.
