The Russo Brothers have had a banner last few years thanks to their work in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. That especially goes for Avengers: Endgame, which drew in billions at the box office but followed other big-time successes from the duo like Captain America: Civil War, and Avengers: Infinity War. Now the Hollywood Union Publicists have selected the Russo Brothers, made up of Joe and Anthony Russo, to receive the Motion Picture Showman of the Year Award. The Avengers: Endgame directors will receive the Showman of the Year Award at the 57th Annual Publicists Awards show on February 7th, which will be located at the Beverly Hills Hotel (via Variety).
“Anthony and Joe Russo have made a huge impact in cinema with the record-breaking ‘Avengers’ and ‘Captain America’ films,” said Lewis Rothenberg, national president. “They have taken audiences around the world on a wild journey with their unique and imaginative brand of storytelling and are two of the most exciting innovators in our industry today. We are thrilled to celebrate their cinematic showmanship and commitment to nurturing new talent.”
Endgame went on to bring in $2,796,274,401 billion at the box office, surpassing their already impressive effort with Infinity War, which brought in $2,048,359,754 billion. You can check out Endgame on home video now, and the bonus features included can be found below.
