Throw more money into the Disney vault. “Avengers: Endgame” had a better Sunday than what was originally projected by the studio.

On Monday, Disney updated the weekend box-office take for its record-breaking Marvel movie. The movie was originally projected to bring in $US84.3 million on Sunday, but it actually took in $US90.3 million. That brings its total domestic gross to $US356 million. The movie also upped its international gross to $US866 million.

The up-to-date global gross for “Endgame” is $US1.222 billion over five days (the movie opened in China on Wednesday).

Sunday’s estimates – $US350 million domestically, $US859 million internationally – were amazing numbers already. They were record-breaking numbers. No movie in its opening weekend had ever crossed the $US300 million mark domestically, the $US800 million mark internationally, and the $US1 billion mark globally.

But what the adjusted figures on Monday prove is that “Endgame” will have legs.

Sorry, other Hollywood studios opening movies soon, “Endgame” won’t have a dramatic drop in ticket sales. According to ComScore, 82% of audience members who saw the movie said they would recommend “Endgame” to a friend, and 29% said they would see the movie again in theatres.

So expect more record-shattering box-office figures for “Endgame” going into this weekend and likely beyond.
