A new TV spot for upcoming Avengers: Endgame has been released online.

This is the first TV spot for the blockbuster since the 30-second spot which aired during the Super Bowl. It contains new footage by comparison to other Endgame trailers but in the form of already-released Marvel Cinematic Universe films.

This time around, the opening of the Avengers: Endgame trailer shows more fallen characters which weren’t used in the latest full-length trailer. For example, Evangeline Lily’s Hope van Dyne a.k.a. The Wasp is also featured in the opening of this new Avengers: Endgame TV spot.

“You cannot chase bigger because you get yourself into trouble,” co-director Joe Russo said in an interview. “What you can chase is storytelling. So, everything for us is based on that story. Obviously, this is larger in scale than the Civil War because we have more than double the number of characters in it. And it is Thanos. It is cosmic. The stakes are the universe. You cannot get much bigger than that.”

In another later interview regarding Avengers: Infinity War, the directors Russo Brothers went into further detail about what they expected the year between Infinity War and its sequel to feel like for fans.

“I think the reaction is that in [Captain America:] Winter Soldier and Civil War, we like complicated stories,” said Joe Russo. “We like stories that are in bounds. And Thanos is the toughest villain they have ever faced. It is going to cost these heroes a lot if they are going to beat him. We like robust concepts. So I think when people are done with the movie, hopefully, it is a cathartic experience for them; and so they feel it was a worthy finale to 10 years of film-making.”

Avengers: Endgame officially hits theaters on April 26. In the meantime, Captain Marvel is still showing. And Spider-Man: Far From Home is set to release on July 5.

“Avengers: Endgame” Breaks Record for Biggest Opening Day Ever in China

Published

By

The wait for Avengers: Endgame is finally over. The blockbuster is starting to trickle into theaters across the globe, giving Marvel fans the film they have been talking about for the past decade. While Endgame does not open in North America until Thursday night, it’s currently concluding its opening day over in China where it is delivering a massive haul. There will likely be several records broken by Avengers: Endgame over the next couple months, and it took just one day to check the first milestone off the list.

Avengers: Endgame has officially set the record for the biggest opening day in Chinese box office history.

According to early estimates from Deadline, the film has earned a whopping $107 million after debuting in China, including $28.1 million from midnight screenings. That also knocks off the previous champion Monster Hunt 2, which released last year.

At this rate, China will likely match, or possibly even surpass, the opening weekend haul for the United States. Initial estimates even suggested that Endgame could deliver an opening weekend between $250 and $280 million. However, these estimates are now starting to rise, with some believing it could reach the $300 million mark.

That is the goal for the United States opening weekend as well. Meanwhile, the current domestic opening record belongs to last year’s Avengers: Infinity War, which earned more than $257 million in its first three days. Avengers: Endgame will easily smash that mark when it arrives this weekend. Still, the only question remaining is just how far it can go.

Certainly, it helps Avengers: Endgame that the critical reviews have been so overwhelmingly positive early on. After the embargo lifted on Tuesday night, Avengers: Endgame quickly became Certified Fresh on Rotten Tomatoes with a %97 score. It is a hit with critics as well as the box office, setting it up for a massive theatrical run.

So, how much do you think Endgame will make in the opening weekend? Could it pass Avatar and become the highest grossing movie of all time? Let us know in the comments!

By

Earlier in the night, the reviews for Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Endgame started surfacing, and just like that, the movie has earned its first major distinction. Moments ago, Rotten Tomatoes announced that Avengers: Endgame was Certified Fresh at 98%, the same score it debuted with 85 reviews submitted. Since it has been Certified Fresh, the film has dropped 1% point, now hovering at 97% along with 89 reviews submitted as of this writing.

Out of those 89 reviews submitted, only three are “rotten.” There is one dissenting opinion that says the film is disappointing as a “direct result of Infinity War being so great” while others say the film is interrupted by “faux-improvised humor” throughout.

At 97% Certified Fresh, Avengers: Endgame is now tied with Black Panther for becoming the highest-rated movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe on the review-aggregating site. It is the 20th “Certified Fresh” film from Marvel Studios with the only two flicks not earning this honor include Thor: The Dark World and The Incredible Hulk.

Endgame is set to make unprecedented money at the box office, with some reports suggest the movie could earn upwards of $1 billion worldwide during its debut outing. Meanwhile, the current global opening record is held by Avengers: Infinity War, which made $647.5 in its opening weekend.

Entire “Avengers: Endgame” Film Leaks Online on Piracy Networks

Published

By

We’re officially at Defcon 1 when it comes to Avengers: Endgame spoilers flooding the Internet. Not only has the movie now screened for the select press (people now living in the separate universe of spoilery details), but Endgame has also now leaked online, on several key piracy networks.

A new report digs into the incident, turning up that the leaked copy of Avengers: Endgame did come from a Chinese theatrical screening. At the time of writing this, Endgame has already had a record-breaking opening in China, so it means that there are literally hundreds of thousands of potential culprits, especially when it comes to who recorded the film and then uploaded it online.

Chinese users have been passing Endgame around in a 1.2G file along with peer-to-peer networks, and it has since made its way overseas to American torrent networks. Obviously, the exact links and locations to that file will NOT be posted here. However, before you are about to go looking (those few of you masochistic enough to do so), you definitely should be warned: you probably will not like what you find. All reports state that the version of Endgame that leaked is a pretty crappy one. As Variety reports:

However, per TorrentFreak’s report, the quality of that pirated copy is really bad. ‘The image constantly flickers throughout,’ the site quoted a source as saying. ‘It is semi-rotated and littered throughout with watermarks for a gambling site that spin around the screen.

Still, this is not the first big leak to hit Avengers: Endgame. In fact, last week, a 5-minute clip of spoilery Endgame footage hit the Internet and made big waves, as it was the first real insight into the movie that fans and industry figures had seen. Many fans swore off watching it, but as always, there were those shameless trolls that had to spread to footage around like they were that crazy dude in Bird Box, trying to make people see.

Throughout the onslaught of spoiler drops, Marvel Studios and Avengers: Endgame directors The Russo Brothers have steadily maintained the “#DontSpoilTheEndgame” mantra, constantly reminding viewers to preserve the experience for other Marvel fans. As the first Endgame early reactions from critics, the less you know about this film going in, the more epic the experience of seeing it. Take note!

“Avengers: Endgame” Box Office Projections Closing In On Record-Shattering, Near $1 Billion Global Launch

Published

on

By

Big things are highly expected of Avengers: Endgame when the film finally hits theaters, including a monumental opening weekend at the box office. Endgame has already broken records in regards to advance tickets sales, which is even more impressive when you consider Infinity War’s impressive record-breaking status. Though Avengers: Endgame seemingly is poised to not just defeat Infinity War in advance ticket sales, but also in its opening weekend box office according to new projections.

These early projections are incredibly promising, as Endgame is expected to launch out of the gate with an $850 million worldwide box office in total (via The Hollywood Reporter). The movie is predicted to debut with $270 to $300 million domestically when it hits North America’s 4,600 theaters. If Endgame manages to land in that projected range (or even better), it’ll likely surpass a billion in just less than a week, which is honestly just crazy.

To put that into perspective, Avengers: Infinity War holds the biggest opening ever at $640.5 million as well as the biggest domestic opening with $257.6 million. Globally it does not even seem like a close race, as it’s also launching in China with the rest of the markets, unlike last year’s Infinity War. The upcoming Endgame is expected to premiere in China with around $250 million as compared to Infinity War’s $191 million. But we will wait and see if that actually happens.

Domestic though will be a closer race. That is because Endgame will have fewer showings than Infinity War did due to its increased run time. While Infinity War took 2 hours and 29 minutes, Endgame clocks in at 3 hours and 58 seconds. To be fair, we still do not think this will be much of an issue, but it might make the debuts much closer than expected.

Avengers: Infinity War ended up bringing in $2,048,359,754 billion at the box office once all was said and done. And Avengers: Endgame will likely exceed that number, though we are not sure by how much. If the flick is as good as early reactions are indicating, it should have no probable surpassing Infinity War.

“Avengers: Endgame” Cast Sings A Marvel Version of “We Didn’t Start The Fire” Featuring Stan Lee Tribute

Published

on

By

Leading up to the forthcoming release of Avengers: Endgame in theaters, on Monday, the cast of this blockbuster stopped by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to sing their iteration of “We Didn’t Start The Fire,” and it is about as glorious as you would expect. Doing the best cover of the Billy Joel 1989 history-filled hit, the majority of original Avengers – alongside new additions like Brie Larson, Danai Guira, and Paul Rudd – were on hand to send their hearts out.

Enjoy the comic strip mash-up above.

Last year, right before Avengers: Infinity War debuted, the cast also spoofed the classic Brady Bunch opening credits in a bit to hype the film. The video has since been viewed more than 21 million times. And this year on the show, with Avengers: Endgame about to smash into theaters, the cast parodied and danced to the tune of Billy Joel, turning it into a tribute to the late Stan Lee.

Just like last time, Robert Downey Jr. starring Iron Man leads the band. He sings lyrics like, “Tony Stark, Iron Man, Nick Fury has a plan.” Marvel villains also get their turn in the spotlight. Groot and Goose the cat nail their brief appearances which are especially good, yet the ending will have you saying “awww.” And the lump-in-throat moment comes at the end as the special tribute to Lee forms out of nowhere.

In a move that is sure to tug at the heartstrings of Marvel fans, the video finishes with a mosaic of Stan Lee. Avengers: Endgame co-director Joe Russo previously confirmed that Lee’s cameo in this latest Avengers flick was the last one he filmed.

Avengers: Endgame stars Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, with Chris Evans (Captain America), Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow), Brie Larson (Captain Marvel), Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye), Mark Ruffalo (Hulk), Josh Brolin (Thanos), Paul Rudd (Ant-Man), Don Cheadle (War Machine), Danai Gurira (Okoye), Tessa Thompson (Valkyrie), Karen Gillan (Nebula), and Bradley Cooper (Rocket Raccoon).

First “Avengers: Endgame” Reactions Arrive Online

Published

By

Earlier this evening, the highly-anticipated world premiere of Avengers: Endgame took place in Los Angeles, alongside the first reactions of the film have started flooding social media. As expected, the responses are overwhelmingly positive, with some even going the length of calling Endgame the best superhero film ever released.

Leading up to this weekend, various reports of suggested monstrous box office tracking amounts, with some analysts thinking the Marvel film could crack $300 million domestically during its opening weekend. The biggest domestic opening of all time currently belongs to last year’s Avengers: Infinity War, which brought $257 million over the course of its debut outing last May.

“It is unprecedented territory,” Boxoffice chief analyst Shawn Robbins expressed. “The numbers that are out floating round out there no matter where you look. It is on a level that I do not even think the most optimistic and/or sort of expected. It feels pretty reasonable, if there’s such a thing, to say that it will set a new record at this point.

Meanwhile, Brandon Davis from Comicbook also shared his feelings.

Avengers: Endgame is an astonishing and amazing film. I have never seen anything like it. The movie is everything I wanted to be and SO much more. Amazing.

While watching Endgame, I laughed so loud, then I clapped with so much force, and I cried so hard. This movie exceeds every expectation and is the perfect culmination of the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe.”

“I just cannot remember a cinematic experience like the one I just had with Endgame. Simply blown away. I feel like the movie was made for every Marvel fan, everywhere.”

Fandango managing editor Erik Davis also said the film was really emotional, so get your tissues ready.

Avengers: Endgame is a masterful epic – a true culmination of 22 films that not only concludes the story but expands upon it. You will learn more about the other movies while this one unfolds. If Avengers: Infinity War is the brawn, Endgame is the brains. And wow, what an ending!

Do not go in expecting Infinity War part II. The two films are so different, yet compliment each other in all the best ways. In terms of which MCU film to watch beforehand… honestly, all of them. What an experience – what an accomplishment,” he wrote.

Not going to spoil anything at all, but I’ll say I laughed, I cried, I cried, I cheered, and I laughed, I cried again and the entire audience gave it a massive standing ovation. Then I cried again. Be ready, kids. Be. Ready.”


“Imagine the best possible version of Avengers: Endgame and somehow the film still surpasses all expectations. I cried 5-6 times. It is the most emotional and most epic MCU film. A tribute to 10 years of the universe and holy sh*t the great fan service in this movie. Sooooo good.” Peter Sciretta from SlashFilm also said.

“Avengers: Endgame” Estimated to Have Already Sold Over $120 Million in Presale Tickets

Published

on

By

It is no secret by now that this weekend’s Avengers: Endgame is going to be a massive blockbuster at the box office. This culmination of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is already prepared to smash several different records, including its opening weekend, and possibly the overall worldwide box office title. The film is poised to make all of the money. Actually, Endgame is already a box office behemoth in spite of not yet playing on a single screen. The presale tickets for this Marvel’s latest are absolutely staggering.

According to Deadline, recent sources are estimating that Avengers: Endgame has already sold more than $120 million in presale tickets across retailers as well as theater companies.

Meanwhile, other sources believe the number is even coming higher, potentially reaching the $140 million thresholds.

However, these numbers are not official by any means. And there’s no guarantee that all of the tickets already sold are for the movie’s opening weekend; however, this does align with similar situations at the box office. It was previously estimated that Star Wars: The Force Awakens had sold around $100 million in presales ahead of its debut back in 2015, and the movie went on to score $247.9 million in the opening weekend. Though that was the record at the time, now Avengers: Endgame is set to pass it this weekend, especially considering Marvel’s latest blockbuster has easily topped The Force Awakens in just presales.

As of now, it looks like Endgame could not only break last year’s Infinity War but could even become the first movie ever to make $300 million in its domestic debut. With that in mind, it is not a stretch to think Endgame could be the film that even takes out Avatar as the highest grossing film in Marvel history.

Following its debut back in 2009, James Cameron’s Avatar did ride the waves of groundbreaking visual effects and exceptional word of mouth, taking the top spot in the all-time box office rankings. According to Box Office Mojo report, Avatar earned a whopping $2,787,965,087 by the time it was all said and done. If there was ever a film to take out Avatar, it should be Avengers: Endgame.

So, have you already got your tickets for the forthcoming Avengers: Endgame? The film hits theaters on April 26!

By

Marvel Studios has just released a new TV spot for the upcoming Avengers: Endgame. The promo offers fans the first look at Tessa Thompson returning as Valkyrie in the film. We also see a glimpse of Josh Brolin monologuing as Thanos, threatening to burn Earth to Cinders: “After I kill you, I am going to burn this annoying little planet to cinders.”

Check out the TV spot below.

It’s still unclear at this time just what Valkyrie has been doing since Thanos defeated the Asgardians following the events of Thor: Ragnarok. However, it is likely that she is just as eager as the God of Thunder to get revenge against the Mad Titan.

The Endgame stars have also been pouring on the hype for the movie.

Karen Gillan believes that Avengers: Endgame is the best superhero film ever made.

“It is going to be the best superhero movie of all time,” the Nebula star said in an interview. “Even if you have never seen those characters before, it does not matter. You can still jump on board, and you are going to have a whale of a time.”

During another interview, Robert Downey Jr. declared, “The last 8 minutes of that movie are maybe the best of the entire history of the whole run of them in a way because everyone is involved. So I was delighted.”

Avengers: Endgame is directed by Joe and Anthony Russo with a screenplay from Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely. The film’s ensemble cast is Robert Downey Jr./Iron Man, Josh Brolin/Thanos, Mark Ruffalo/Hulk, Chris Evans/Captain America, Chris Hemsworth/Thor, Jeremy Renner/Hawkeye/Ronin, Scarlet Johansson/Black Widow, Brie Larson/Captain Marvel, Karen Gillan/Nebula, Paul Rudd/Ant-Man, Bradley Cooper/Rocket Raccoon, Don Cheadle/War Machine, Danai Gurira/Okoye and so on.

Avengers: Endgame officially hits theaters on April 26. In the meantime, Captain Marvel is now in theaters. Spider-Man: Far From Home premieres earlier on July 2.

“Avengers: Endgame” Has Broken the Opening Night Record in China With Just Pre-Sales

Published

on

By

To say that everyone is excited about Avengers: Endgame would be a bit of an understatement, as the upcoming chapter in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is set to be the culmination of the 21 films that came before it. Understandably, audiences do not want to risk having to wait any longer than they have to, leading to massive amounts of pre-sale tickets around the world. The film has already broken a huge number of records with advanced ticket sales, with the latest achievement being that it has earned the highest opening night box office in China based solely on pre-sales, a number which is sure to increase when Endgame officially hits theaters.

Over on Twitter, Chinese box office tracker Gavin Feng declared that the pre-sale tickets for Avengers: Endgame total roughly ¥100 million, which equates to $14,9 million. At this page, the film could end up taking in closer to ¥135 million, which is about $20 million. The previous opening midnight record holder was The Fate of the Furious, taking in ¥62,71 million, which is roughly $9,11 million.

There is no surprise that Endgame could earn this achievement, as the film broke records merely hours after tickets officially went on sale. Avengers: Endgame set the record for the most number of tickets sold within in the first 24 hours of sales, a feat it accomplished in just 6 hours.

After devastating events of Infinity War, the universe is now in ruins due to the efforts of the Mad Titan, Thanos. But with the help of remaining allies, the Avengers will assemble again to undo Thanos’ action and restore order to the universe once for all, no matter what consequences may be in store.

Avengers: Endgame is landing in theaters on April 26. Spider-Man: Far From Home will follow on July 2 (set to arrive earlier).

Robert Downey Jr. Declares Last 8 Minutes of “Avengers: Endgame” The Best In MCU History

Published

on

By

While Marvel fans are counting down the days until they can eventually see Avengers: Endgame, the recent trailers and TV clips are only hyping that feeling even up more. After the emotional ending of Infinity War, fans are hoping to see the remaining superheroes restore the universe or at least get a few of their allies back in the process. However, if you thought the ending of Infinity War was crazy, Iron Man actor Robert Downey Jr. says you have not seen anything yet. In fact, the final minutes of the upcoming Endgame might just be the best Marvel has ever brought to us.

Recently, Robert Downey Jr. spoke to The Upcoming, kicking off the discussion with a bold proclamation.

“The last 8 minutes of the movie are maybe the best 8 minutes of this entire history of their whole run in a way because everyone is involved. So I was delighted.”

Still, that is bold to be sure, as fans have seen some stellar climactic moments throughout the last ten years. Robert Downey Jr. has been involved in many of them though, so we are inclined to believe him when he says it’ll deliver.

Robert Downey Jr. also gave a bit more insight into Tony Stark’s state of mind when Endgame begins.

“He recognizes that he should have his eyes on the long game here. So I guess there is a different set of principles that he’s operating by then he has before. I think a lot of it has been the burgeoning effect of all other Avengers and seeing how much they have put on the line,” said Downey.

The iconic actor also broke down why these movies resonate so much with Marvel fans, especially in this day and age.

“It was all there in that universe to begin with. That is why I think the Marvel comics have been so numinous to kids and grownups and people,” Downey continued. “There is the love for it because it speaks to the world, but also speaks to the democratic American projected dream, which is even far more complicated than that *laugh*. But there is an idea there that has always been trying to express itself. Strangely, in some ways, the best of that has been expressed in those little two-hour segments of entertainment.”

Avengers: Endgame is hitting theaters on April 26.
