Marvel's last offering in Phase III of its cinematic universe seems to have created box office history. Avengers: Endgame has collected a total of Rs 187.14 crores (gross) on its opening weekend in India. The film raked in Rs 157.2 crore in net figures, which is 66.70% higher as compared to the numbers collected by its predecessor Avengers: Infinity War on its opening weekend.

These astronomical figures has pushed the film to create new records at the Indian box office. With these earnings, Avengers: Endgame eclipses opening weekend figures of all Hindi films and emerges as the biggest Hollywood opener till date.

The Avengers finale far exceeded even its own gargantuan expectations, according to studio estimates on Sunday. The movie had been forecast to open between $260 million and $300 million in US and Canadian theatres, but moviegoers turned out in such droves that Endgame blew past the previous record of $257.7 million, set last year by Avengers: Infinity War when it narrowly surpassed Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($248 million or about $266 million in inflation-adjusted dollars.)
