    I'm laughing everytime I see that clip when Cap says "lets get that son of a bitch'.
    Thanos smacked him like a child, basically one-punched him.
    Why is he so confident that it will be any different now?

      He can do this all day, but Thanos smacked him like a little brat xD
      Unless, obviously, he will get plot-armor and plot-strenght this time.
      "Thanos beats Hulk with no problem and one Infinity Stone?
      Rogers holds his fist when he has 5!"
      What a bullshit.

    your downplaying the importance of endgame. its not "just another installment". its literally the culmination of some of our childhoods. its the finale of a decade long saga that has brought back the idea of event style movies. its made ners cool, its brought light too some of the most well written stories in modern history, its the birth of modern mythology. never again, will a franchise bring parents, grandparents, children and grandchildren together the way MCU has. Even star wars cant do it anymore.

    ANTMAN wants to crawl up inside Thanos, , Do Aliens Wipe their Butts? Do Alien Children use Diapers? Who trains them to use the Potty? Who taught Any of the thousand Aliens , Earth Costumes or habits, Where ever farm Thanos is living on, must be 5-Star-rooms with a working Toilet, Cause Super Villain Don't pee on Trees . I've always wanted to know where does the Guardian's GO or do they Share with Rocket & Groot, Does their Ship Flush it all out into Space?

    Nobody explained the situation with "SONY" Spider-Verse belongs to "SONY" in association with MARVEL, That how the Logo READ. So "Spiderman Far from Home" is it a Full MARVEL Credit, Meaning it is a Prequel to ENDGAME, and Spider-Man did DIE-DUST in the MCU, So I'm thinking " far from HOME" is Spiderman Last MARVEL movie, He Dusted in INFINITY WARs , He Goes Back to SONY> There is No-Way to bring Back 50% of all universe, And it's Not just Earth Universe, Titan is in Earth Solar System , But Xandar, Nowhere, Skarr, and a few other living Aliens Planets are Not? It wouldn't be Fare if the AVENGERS just change what happen in their Solar System and Not what happen in other universe, remember there are Damage Infinity Stone?

    The SHAZAM family Toy-Dolls was a Spoiler , if there a Doll of DARLA Eugene Pedro , Who are these Shazam Characters? It's the New Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Dolls without the Helmet , They gave SAVANA an Action Toy, "Where's BLACK ADAM?" I would rather be in the TOY-STORE that in the movie and Raid these BATMAN - other toys "Where are they in the Real-World?

    Like Theaters are going to show ENDGAME in One Theater!! You trying to start a Riot, People Killing people just to skip in line or grab the good Seats, Relationship will break-up, just for the fact No girl wants to be drag into a theater just for her to save their seat, of she the one who has to go get popcorn and soda, When was the last time you were with the General public Audience, You normally hang with the Advancement Ticket holders, the Fanboys & Critics, The MCU is really a universe with individual Film Adventure ,

    I think with the box office numbers thing part of it goes to how many screens a theater will play it on. Like my amc theater by me will show movies as big as avengers on like 3 or 4 screens sometimes and on the opening Thursday they literally are only showing endgame on all 10 theaters most of which are sold out lol. But none amc theaters around me just show it on the one I’m not saying that will get an extra 5 million seats. I also don’t know what the situation with the rest of the country. It’s just me thought vomiting into the comments.

    I think captain America would retreat, because if he leads the rest of the avengers to their deaths he knows there would be no hope at all. He’s a good leader, he’d do what’s necessary the smart way.

    In a weekend. A film can make 1 billion bucks on maximum capacity. Considering 4400 theatres with roughly 10 rooms with roughly 300 seats having roughly 4 showings with a price of roughly 19 dollars in 3 days.

  • NjA

    Let's run the numbers if it's plausible 50 million dollars extra is possible.
    Average ticket 10 dollars.
    5 million seats. Divided by 4400 theaters.
    That's 1136 seats per theater.
    So each theater needs about a thousand extra viewers than Infinity war had. For argument's sake say that each theater on average shows Endgame on 3 screens, 5 times a day. That's 15 a day, for 4 days (I believe Thursday is included in the weekend box office, no?).
    That's 1136 / (15 x 4) = 19.
    So taking these numbers, which are really just guesses after that 1136 number, they need to fill 19 more people per showing.
    I don't know man, feels like a tall order.

    • Vino sitas

      +NjA i mean... that's kind of realistic? still a lot ... idunno 300 million seems impossible in opening weekend tho.

      The average ticket price in NA according to the National Association of Theatre Owners was just above $9.
      But that's including ticket prices for all sorts of movies, every day of the week and theatres in smaller towns too, where the prices might be lower. I suppose it's more fair to look at the median price, but unfortunately, we don't have those numbers.
      Even if we guesstimate it to $16 instead, then with the same calculation I just did, it would be ~12 seats extra per showing to get 50 million more than Infinity War.

    • Vino sitas
      Vino sitas Month ago

      10 dollars? Those are European prices my dude. The cheapest tickets you can find are on weekdays. In the weekend your average ticket price differs from 14 to 25. So a ticket is roughly 19 on average.

  • Robert Gittings

    Imax screenings are very over priced in the UK, £25 per ticket which is crazy, imax should just become the norm.
    We shouldnt have to sit through so many adverts, the only benefit of adverts is that it gives you a little extra time to find your seat but also buy snacks and drinks.
    I dont mind sitting through a few new movies trailers of upcoming films but do we really have to watch the ads for phones, cars, food chains, insurance etc...
    That stuff has no place in a paid showing, especislly when moviies are longer these days.
    The cinemas must make a lot of money from the adverts, but we pay good money to see a film so we shouldnt be bombarded with so many adverts before a film starts.
    The only thing worse than adverts before a film though, the over use adverts within the movies themselves, heres looking at you Man of Steel.

    Could Ant-Man give Thor with Stormbreaker a suit so he (Thor) could shrink, go up Thanos' ass and wreck it? Thor is Asgardian and could survive a Titans' innards even when expanding inside him (Thanos) right? Stormbreaker obviously wouldn't disintegrate right? Summoning lightning from inside Thanos's body is a good strategy as well... just sayin'.

      Perhaps things of such molecular structure can't be shrunk by Pym particles? Like Thor, Cap shield, Stormbreaker etc.

    I was only an 8 year old when that first Iron Man movie came out. Since then my life has changed astronomically. I am now an adult and I have my own life. But marvel always remained. In a way this movie marks an end to my childhood but an amazing start to new things

  • Jamie Banner
    Jamie Banner Month ago +1

    I suppose there is a theoretical limit but. I'm just going to point out the thing that's puzzling me. Is the movies that are supporting diversity are making twice as much as white male Superhero movies. And the thing is everybody is talking about the diversity movies more. Including your channel. There's been a hell of a lot more talk about Captain Marvel than Shazam. And Shazam Billy Batson a young kid. I can't think of any superhero that young boys and Men around the world could relate to more... opened up at 50 to 55 million? Frankly I'm surprised anybody talking about Ant-Man first topic about him I've seen in a long time. Although it's great that there's diversity but I'd like to see a bit more support all around. If white male superheroes are making twice the less than diversity characters it's going to be what's the point. You gonna get twice as much for a female character a person of race or religion. Does it make any sense to me.

    • Semere Tesfai
      Semere Tesfai Month ago +1

      Hey man I was disappointed at Shazam box office as well. I wanted it to top 70 million opening weekend. But it didn’t and ultimately that’s okay. Important thing is that I loved it as a movie. Why it didn’t blow up at box office like Aquaman or Captain Marvel is probably because it’s lesser known character to the general audience. Kinda like Antman. In the end it’s going to make enough $$ to be profitable and they will make a sequel. Now I believe the sequel will do a lot better at the box office. People who didn’t see it at the theater will see it at home via streaming/ dvd/rental. It’s going to gain more audience that way.
      All I can tell you is don’t take it personally. Hollywood is a business and they’ll keep making superheroes movies (of all kinds) as long they are profitable. White male superheroes movies have been profitable more than not.
      Also the reason Black Panther, Captain Marvel & Wonder Woman made so much money is because they are so diverse. Not only did white males pay to see them but everyone else that are usually under served by Hollywood. Also the movies were so damn good & people went back multiple times. Especially for Black Panther & Wonder Woman.

    • Jamie Banner
      Jamie Banner Month ago +1

      +Semere Tesfai no I'm not worried about that. I'm saying white male superhero movies in general struggle to pass 600 million. Despite movies like Winter Soldier and Logan considered best Superhero movies ever made. It's a rarity to reach a billion. Obviously Dark Knight but that had the help of the Heath Ledger movement. And Iron Man 3 came on the back of Avengers 2012. Apart from those two most scrape past 600 the first Ant-Man didn't even do it. Wolverine was struggling to scrape past 400.. But Wonder Woman. Captain Marvel. Black panther. Aquaman. Which is supporting gender and race are making twice as much regularly on average. And it doesn't look like it's slowing down. Why not show support for all types of Superhero movies? Disappointed in the Shazam opening weekend. Because the superhero is actually a young boy. You think people would be taking their children to see it.. it seems parents have taken their daughters to see Captain Marvel but not their sons to see Shazam... kind of sending out a wrong message. If it doesn't make 500 million.

    • Semere Tesfai
      Semere Tesfai Month ago

      Jamie Banner if you’re worried about the future of “white male superheroes movies ” don’t be! They’ll keep making them. Avengers Endgame has how many wms? ...Ironman, Cap, Hulk, Hawkeye, Antman, Thor, Star Lord, Spider-Man, Winter Soldier, Dr.Strange.
      Also...these other movies coming out this year...
      Spider-Man Far From Home
      Having more diverse superheroes movies representing the rest of the human race does not mean they will stop making movies for white males. Don’t feel threatened by that. If you still do then Hollywood has 100 years worth of white male heroes movies for you to watch.

    Even taking into account the longer runtime wouldn't it make business sense for cinemas to run End Game on more screens than they did with Infinity War, with that movie being the litmus test for how much they could make for the "sequel", I see chain theatres barely running anything else from the get go for weeks besides End Game, that's one way I think End Game could eclipse Infinty War for both opening weekend and overall box office having a longer runtime
