The movie became the first pandemic movie to surpass $1B at the box office worldwide. In just over 12 consecutive days Sony’s comic book epic eclipsed it and tied it with 2014’s “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”. The Avengers: Endgame 2018 and The Avengers: Endgame 2019 topped their target times by smashing their desired timetable of 11 and five days. The rapid spreading micron variant of COVID-19 is remarkable.
The last movie to garner $1 billion at the box office was Star Wars:
The Rise of Skywalker, which hit theaters in December 2019. Many countries began shutting down due to COVID-19 in the months immediately following the film’s release.
