Finally, likely buoyed by being the last Marvel film on the ten-year plan that led to the big finale of Endgame, Disney's Captain Marvel jumped back into the top five with another $4.2 million to its total box office.
Not only is 'Avengers: Endgame' a direct sequel to 'Avengers:Infinity War', it's the culmination of the previous 20-plus titles in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), a blockbuster series of films that commenced with "Iron Man' in 2008". Avengers: Endgame raked in Rs 100 crore in two days and at the end of its 10-day run in theatres, the film is expected to cross Rs 300 crore. Despite being a distant second to Endgame, the thriller sill beat industry expectations of a $9 million opening.
Unfortunately, debuting in third place is the romantic comedy The Long Shot, a movie that deserved a better release date that wasn't lost in the shuffle between Avengers: Endgame and Detective Pikachu. Frankly, we probably give too much of a damn. But even the draw of chart-topping musical artists like Kelly Clarkson, Joe Jonas, Bebe Rexha, Lizzo, Pitbull, and Blake Shelton wasn't enough to get people interested in the movie.
