Signposted by the unprecedented hype and monster opening day, “Avengers: Endgame” convincingly broke the all-time opening weekend record at the US box office.

The eagerly anticipated film will close the weekend with an estimated $350 million.

“The Curse Of La Llorona,” last weekend’s winner, falls to #3 with $7.5 million (cume now $41.3 million).

“Breakthrough” slips one place to #4 with $6.3 million (cume now $26.1 million), and “Shazam!” drops three places to #5 with $5.5 million (cume now $131.1 million).
