“Avengers: Endgame” $60 Million Thursday Previews, Largest Ever, Beats “The Forces Awakens” by $3 Mil


Here we go!

“Avengers: Endgame” took in $60mil last night, largest ever preview night. It beat “The Force Awakens” by $3 mil.

“Endgame” is on track for a $300 million opening, shattering all records. It now has $305 million including foreign markets that had a 24 hour jump on the US.

A billion dollars should be in the Disney till by Sunday night.

They do talk about friendship and family over money in “Endgame,” but hey– the money is the endgame!

All of this record breaking stuff is very exciting. And it will be until “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker” comes in December. And it’s all from Disney! This is no Mickey Mouse stuff, as they say!
