In an historic event, AVENGERS: ENDGAME knocks it way out of the ballpark with a $356 million opening this weekend in its debut at the Box Office! It plays at 4,662 theatres (widest release of all time) for Disney/Marvel and along with those numbers comes great acclaim, as it reaches 96% on the Tomatometer for Critics, while achieving a super-rare A+ CinemaScore. The previous highest opening of all time in North America belonged to 2018’s AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR with a $257.6 million debut and it might a while before we see another Film open to these numbers. In Canada, it sets a record as the highest opening ever for a Film according to Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures Canada, taking-in $28.9 million. Globally, it will hit $1.2 billion+ this weekend.

None of it comes easily for him, especially considering he’s targeted by everything from killer whales to leopard seals, who unapologetically threaten his happily ever after. From the filmmaking team behind “Bears” and “Chimpanzee,” Disneynature’s “Penguins” opens in theatres nationwide in time for Earth Day 2019.
