Avengers: Endgame took the world by storm earlier this year. When it surpassed Avatar to become the highest-grossing film of all time, it proved that Marvel’s revolutionary and slow-burning franchise was a game-changer in money-making machines. And several months after its initial release, the film is still breaking records.
Taking place across the pond, Endgame recently became the UK’s fastest-selling digital movie ever. According to the BBC, the picture garnered 335,400 downloads in its first week, smashing the previous record of 265,000 held by the Queen biopic, Bohemian Rhapsody.
That may be weird to hear for those of us in America who have the film sitting on our shelves. But unlike American stores, the DVD, Blu-Ray, Blu-Ray 3D, 4K UHD, etc. release has yet to happen across the pond. We’ll see if sales will continue to spike once the physical copy hits stores on September 2nd.
With that said, some fans may be holding out on purchasing Avengers: Endgame in any capacity. Those who feel like they had their satisfying share in cinemas also have the option to wait until Disney Plus launches this winter to see it again. Heck, when that happens, fans will have the opportunity to watch all four in a row if they want, and then pop in Don Chaffey’s Pete‘s Dragon because it’s there. It’s all there.
But this advice unfortunately doesn’t apply to our European friends. While Marvel fans in America will have access to the Disney vault on November 12th, an official release date for the streaming service has yet to be confirmed in the UK.
