MANILA – As expected, Marvel Studios’ “Avengers: Endgame” smashed Philippine box office records on its opening day.

Fans have lined up as early as 4 a.m. for the first screening of “Endgame,” with some even dressing up as their favorite superheroes from the movie. 

Some cinemas started showing the film as early as 6:01 a.m., with others holding 24-hour screenings.
