It was generally assumed that Avengers: Endgame was going to have a strong opening weekend at the box office. In fact, most people figured that it would probably have the biggest opening ever, which it did, but I don’t think though that it was expected to break a new record every few hours.

Endgame’s estimated $350 million opening weekend will likely improve once actual numbers are received later today, but as for now, the film has broken the previous record set by Avengers: Infinity War ($257.69 million) by $93 million.
