Is 'Avengers' the 'Endgame?' Other blockbusters coming in 2019

IMDB ranks best upcoming movies


“Avengers: Endgame” is all anyone can talk about, with its highly anticipated release today. 

Walt Disney Co. has lined up 4,600 theaters across the U.S. to show the film, but that may not be enough, according to the Associated Press. 

The anticipation leaves everyone wondering how much the Marvel movie will gross at the box office. Some speculate it might clear $300 million domestically and $1 billion worldwide, according to the Hollywood Reporter. 

Once "Avengers" mania dies down, there are other movies to get excited about.
