Post Avengers: Endgame 300 million+ opening weekend club
I'm not sure how there's going to be enough capacity for this, but this will be biggest opening weekend of all time by far

The highest average wide release ($59,982 by Star Wars: The Force Awakens) x widest release (4,535 theaters by Despicable Me 3) = $272 million.
But the biggest opening weekend of all time is already a very hard achievement in itself, as Endgame's prelude, Captain Marvel, is not as good as Infinity's prelude, Black Panther.

No way. It will be the third biggest opener.

I was going to say the same thing - capacity may not allow for it.

On that point:
If streaming causes a contraction in the number of theaters nationwide that will make it harder for future films to achieve a top 5 OW

BUT

....you have inflation helping boost the chances

So there would be conflicting forces.

I’m thinking it’ll fail to top Infinity War but still beat TFA and top 250m

I'm thinking 270m. 300m+ probably won't happen for awhile.

I don't think capacity is the problem. There are movies that can achieve higher PTA than $60k. Endgame needs an average of $66.2k-$67.2k and IF it's going to break $300m that's not a "big ask"

I am in.

This is going to be huge. Everywhere I go I hear people bringing it up. I listen to sports radio in the morning and every week on almost each show one of them will bring up Endgame or "thanosing" someone.

If it doesn't break it, it will be very close 295-305 range.

The thing these Avengers movies have going for them is the opening, so if any film is going to do it, this will. But I don't think it will reach $300m upon opening. C'mon guys, don't turn a $280m opening into a disappointment.

Yeah I think it will be closer to 270-280 myself, but if anything is going to challenge that record its going to be this movie.

I'm on the Rev boat. Just under IW, over SW.

I’m not worried about capacity, but I’m not sure how far past 700m it can go. Might be closer to 290m.

Screw it I’m in. It has the marketplace all to itself.
