Final Thought – Cinema Releases 3 May 2019 – & Box Office

Avengers: Endgame dominates the box offices on both sides of the Atlantic which is no real surprise given Endgames the beginning of the end of the current crop of actors playing the respective superheroes. Even so it’s still hard to grasp the numbers involved with Endgame taking massive $357 million in just a few today in America and £43.4 million at the UK box office.

There are several new films out in both the United Kingdom and USA this week but most will probably be overshadowed by that superhero offering. For my part I’m looking forward to seeing horror film The Curse of La Llorona which hits UK cinemas this week.

A quick glance at the Blu-ray and DVD charts show that superhero draw with several films re-entering the charts.
