Movie of the Week: AVENGERS: ENDGAME.

AVENGERS: ENDGAME is… finally out? There was weirdness involved in the release dates. I’m not exactly sure how that was all going down. But, no matter: it was there while I was shopping for school supplies…

Mmmm. School supplies.

…so I picked it up. Gonna find me some Howard the Duck.

The AVENGERS: ENDGAME Honest Trailer.

Although I’m confused, because I thought the AVENGERS: ENDGAME DVD comes out next week. I think that something funky may have happened with the release date. Anyway: it entertains. I’m looking forward to watching the movie again when it finally does show up physically*. There are details I figure I missed the first time.

*That should probably be a general rule for you, from now on. They seem to be increasingly comfortable with retroactively altering digital copies of flicks, after the fact. Even when the changes are unobjectionable they’re not really unobjectionable, you know what I mean?

Tweet of the Day, Go See Endgame Before You Watch This edition.

It’s not quite perfect — there’s a sound effect that maybe needs to be moved, if possible; maybe-possibly-I-haven’t-decided-yet removed, if it is not; and, of course the whole sequence needs to set to music — but it’s really good. After the fold.

Quote of the Day, The Ultimate Dad Joke In Avengers: Endgame Almost Didn’t Happen edition.

Spoilers after the fold, although by now you’ve probably seen the movie. Well, I assume. Over 2 billion dollars in ticket sales? …Well, somebody’s watched it.

Avengers: Endgame gets a 1.2 billion opening weekend.

Excelsior.

Avengers: Endgame shattered the bounds of realistic opening weekend predictions this weekend, with a towering $350 million domestic and $1.2 billion in its global debut. Of note, 45% of that came from 3-D showings around the world while $91.5 million came from IMAX (double their previous opening weekend record) and even 4DX earned $15 million globally on the title.

Domestically, the film earned a 2.23x multiplier (not bad considering the numbers) and snagged the biggest Thursday preview ($60 million), the biggest “pure Friday” ($96.7 million), the biggest single-day gross ($156.7 million on Friday counting the previews), the biggest Saturday ($109 million, down just 31% from Friday) and biggest Sunday grosses ($84.3 million) even when adjusted for inflation.

Lifehack: don’t shout Avengers: Endgame spoilers outside of a Hong Kong theater.

They don’t take kindly to that in Hong Kong, you see.

A man who obviously didn’t get the memo on Avengers: Endgame – or chose to ignore it – was beaten outside a Hong Kong cinema for shouting out spoilers to fans waiting in line to see the film.

Taiwanese media said the man, who was not identified, was left bloodied outside a cinema in Causeway Bay, Hong Kong, after watching the movie.

Turns out I’m seeing Avengers: Endgame tomorrow after all.

They added some more showings to the theater that I go to — Regal Cinemas is my default theater these days; good seating, a decent rewards system, the amenities at my local theater are excellent, and they have actual matinees — so I’m hitting it tomorrow morning. Which is good, because people are already starting to go purple-faced with the strain of not telling me any freaking spoilers.

Although some of them are also taking the no-spoilers thing way too seriously, too. I mean, gimme a break. You should be able to say whether or not you liked a flick.

My opening weekend prediction for Avengers: Endgame.

Ready? Here you go: a metric sh*tload. Which is what everybody else is saying, only they’re trying to gussy it up more: “Fandango reported this month that it sold out thousands of Endgame showtimes on its website and that theater owners were scrambling to post new showtimes and screens to meet fan demand (some as early as 4 AM and 6:30 AM for its opening day Friday). In its first seven days of presales on Fandango, Endgame sold five times as many tickets as last year’s Avengers: Infinity War.”

I’ve seen everything from three hundred million domestic to nine hundred million worldwide, and I absolutely decline to come up with a harder number than ‘metric sh*tload.’ This movie is gonna be a monster. I didn’t have trouble getting a ticket only because I’m going next Monday at 11 AM.
