Avengers: Endgame debuts with strong 97% score on Rotten Tomatoes

Last night, Avengers: Endgame premiered to star-studded red carpet in Los Angeles where all the film’s stars and co-stars and those with cameos showed up for the epic finale of 22 interconnected Marvel films.

Everyone was on the red carpet to celebrate the accomplishment: the Russo Brothers, Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johannson, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Danai Gurira, Chris Pratt, Paul Rudd, Brie Larson, Benedict Wong, Bradley Cooper, Karen Gillan, Don Cheadle, Jeremy Renner, and Benedict Cumberbatch to name just half of the players in the film.

It also meant that after the hub bub and screening that social media reactions were allowed and the official review embargo would be lifted the following day (today, like right now). With that, we the consumers would begin seeing and hearing more and more about the movie — hopefully without any spoilers.

With so much hype, so many pre-sale tickets being sold and expectations that Endgame has the opportunity to break all box office records, it’s clear that the fourth Avengers installment is one of the most-anticipated movie events in the history of Hollywood. One of the last remaining questions is how would it be received by the critics?

Avengers: Endgame Rotten Tomatoes Score (97%)

If you’re concerned about whether Endgame will be received well by critics or not then we have great news for you (unless you hate superhero movies). As of this post (7:30 PM EST on April 23rd), Avengers Endgame has an near-pristine 97% Rotten Tomatoes score after approximately 56 movie reviews. Here’s a screenshot of the score via Fandango’s app.

As reviews hit the system, Rotten Tomatoes scores are often inconsistent this early on. For example, Fandango’s page for Endgame on desktop shows that the movie sits at a 100%.  Even Rotten Tomatoes shows conflicting scores on their own site. Look at this:

Anyways, close enough, but the main point is ENDGAME IS AWESOME.

We’re fully aware that the regular pattern with first reviews of a new movie release tend to trend more more positive than negative and more often than not, the RT score normalizes as the opening weekend passes. More critics will get to see the film tonight, so that RT score is not locked whatsoever, but it’s a good sign.

That’s because the social media reactions were so effusive (epic and emotional were tweeted often) and the actual reviews have been really positive, we’re really confident that Endgame will surpass Infinity War’s 85% RT score from last year.

Only time will tell. There’s many futures that can play out. Stay tuned.
