Avengers: Endgame came out over the weekend and has already made over a billion dollars worldwide. Literally, a billion dollars. Just like that. Worldwide it’s already one of the twenty highest grossing movies of all time.* The only other new release this week is an odd children’s movie from France about a little girl and her pet lion. Crazily, the film was shot over the course of several years with an actual lion cub who spent years bonding with child actress Daniah De Villiers. There’s no CGI at all, which seems completely insane (and also ideal counterprogramming for anyone jaded by the enthusiasm of Marvel fans). Nationally, Endgame is playing in 4,662 screens this week; Mia and the White Lion is on 5.
