Endgame Keeps Breaking All Records:
Avengers: Endgame is the highest-grossing film of all time, which keeps breaking records even after its Blu-Ray release. The film is still being shown in over 100 theatres all across the United States.
Studies of the box office receipts by various studios and exhibitors suggest that the film has made more than $850 million (Domestic). This is only in the domestic box office, as opposed to a staggering $2.8 million on an international level.
Single Day Earnings:
Endgame made a revenue of $2,820 at nearly 110 theatres on just September 4th itself. This is in addition to a whopping $16,000 on Labour Day.
The earnings suggest that Endgame is still playing in theatres that are mostly empty. It is important to note that the movie is now available for viewing on Blu-ray.
Despite that, there are people who would rather see their favorite Marvel heroes on the big screen.
The Reason Behind the Huge Earning:
Such huge revenues are not uncommon for huge blockbusters. Especially for something like Avengers, which has a huge fan-base all around the world, such earnings are quite common.
This is also in regards to the obvious overlap window that takes place between the theatrical run of a movie and its home release.
The time gap between the two seems to be getting closer with every movie. While Avengers: Endgame hit theatres on April 26th this year, it was available for streaming on July 30th.
Even the time span for which the film remains in theatres affects the earnings. The previous highest-grossing film of all time was Avatar.
It was reportedly in theatres for almost 34 weeks. But, with new movies and blockbusters releasing every week or other, this time period has been cut short. Avengers: Endgame moved out of theatres in just 18 weeks.
To make a comparison, Spider-Man: Far From Home is still running in over 3,000 theatres across the world. One of the reasons for this is its re-release, before which it was in almost 1,000 theatres.
The film has earned around $1.3 million on Labour Day, with $400,000 on a single day in September.
To calculate, the amount comes to $128 per screen for Spider-Man and $26 for Endgame, for one day. One of the major reasons for the films still being in theatres is the proximity along with their plot connections with each other.
The connections make both the movies seem more cohesive to each other, thus making fans want to see both.
