As of Sunday, 5th May 2019, “Avengers: Endgame” is now the second top-earning film of all time. The film has been in cinemas worldwide for only 12 days now. The only film standing between Endgame and the number one spot is Avatar (2009).
“Avengers: Endgame” has so far earned $2.189 billion, beating “Titanic”, “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” and “Avengers: Infinity War” to earn the number two spot. “Endgame” still has a lot of time left in the theatres to beat Avatar’s $2.788 billion on the number one spot.
The film passed the $2 billion mark in record time on Saturday, 4th May 2019. This came just 11 days after the release. The chances of “Endgame” beating “Avatar” to the number one spot are very high. A good reason is that it took “Avatar” 47 days to earn the feat Endgame did in 11 days. So far, only five films have ever reached the $2-billion mark, including MCU’s 2018 “Avengers: Infinity War”.
How much did it cost to make “Avengers: Endgame”?
“Avengers: Endgame” was not a cheap film to make. The cinematography, technology, characters, attention to detail, costume and intense action show that the film was not child’s play.
“Endgame” reportedly cost roughly between $350 to $400 million to produce. This makes it one of the most expensive films ever made. That’s money well spent because the film has easily made five times the profit already in two weeks.
Presently, the most expensive film ever made is “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides”, which cost about $379 million to make. “Star Wars: Age of Ultron” follows closely, reportedly costing $365 million to make. “Avengers: Infinity War” cost about $316 million. The only other MCU film to come this close is “Captain America: Civil War”, which had a budget of about $250 million.
