“Avengers: Endgame” is just beginning its box office domination. 

The action film broke records by raking in $60 million in U.S. previews Thursday night before the film officially opened Friday. 

The previous preview frontrunner was “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” at $57 million, set in 2015.

“Endgame” is going strong overseas as well, grossing $305 million in its two day opening starting Wednesday, according to online box office database Box Office Mojo.

The film’s stellar performance doesn’t come as a surprise, however. 

The Marvel Studios empire has racked up about $15 billion in box-office profits since “Iron Man” was released in 2008. And since “Endgame” is a culmination of the 21 previous films in the franchise, it was safe to bet fans would come out to see the epic superhero team finale.

The 4,600 theaters the Walt Disney Co. lined up for showings Thursday night were also prepared for the expected high demand, many theaters staying open round-the-clock, according to Associated Press.

And records may continue to break as the weekend continues, with weekend box office estimates ranging from $260 million to $300 million domestically, and between $800 million and $1 billion globally.
