With big movies like Endgame shattering box office records and selling out theaters, I was wondering if anyone has done or could do the math on what the most a movie could make in its opening weekend. I assume it's a finite number considering there's a finite number of movie screens in the world and a finite amount of time in a weekend.

I'd tend to says that it is impossible to know, looking to all the variable parameters.
But, I understand your question. Actually, if we could know the exact number of seats available in the theaters by country at a specific time, with an average ticket price by country at a specific time, we could approach an estimation of the maximum money a movie could make.
However, those numbers would still be incorrect through time, because of the inflation, the variation in the amount of theaters, etc.
