Endgame surpasses Avatar as all time highest-grossing film

Pandora's decade-long rule has finally ended.

Disney and Marvel Studios' Avengers: Endgame has passed up James Cameron's 2009 behemoth Avatar to become the top grossing film of all time at the worldwide box office, not adjusted for inflation.

Marvel chief Kevin Feige and his team announced the milestone when taking the stage at Comic-Con late Saturday afternoon in San Diego.

“A huge congratulations to the Marvel Studios and Walt Disney Studios teams, and thank you to the fans around the world who lifted Avengers: Endgame to these historic heights," Disney Studios co-chairman and chief creative officer Alan Horn said in a statement.

Through Friday, Avengers: Endgame's global gross was $2,789.2 billion, $500,000 behind Avatar's $2,789.7 billion. The gap will be closed on Saturday or Sunday once weekend box office grosses are tallied (last weekend, Endgame brought in $2.8 million globally).

At the end of last weekend, Endgame trailed Avatar by $7 million, at least on paper. In recent days, however, Disney found additional money when reconciling the movie's final global earnings, a process that occurs at the end of any film's run. That's in addition to $2 million or more from weekday ticket sales.

As fate would have it, Avatar is now part of the Mouse House empire following Disney's acquisition of much of 21st Century Fox in late March.

"Of course, even with the passage of a decade, the impact of James Cameron‚Äôs¬†Avatar¬†remains as powerful as ever, and the astonishing achievements of both of these films are ongoing proof of the power of movies to move people and bring them together in a shared experience," Horn continued in his statement. "The talented filmmakers behind these worlds have much more in store, and we look forward to the future of both the Marvel Cinematic Universe and Pandora.‚ÄĚ

The devil worked hard, but Disney worked harder.

FUCK Disney, especially when they re-release Avatar before the sequel to take back the record. It's disgusting, but sure.

The way they are going to win in the end with this bullshit is the irony of it all.

Avatar is technically now Disney anyway, so even if Avatar is re-released, Disney still wins. The other studios need to step tf up.

The amount of times I've seen people say otherwise without fact checking because they need to justify why they feel some type of way about this. Do better @shumiley

Yeah, it seems like lots of people are forgetting Avatar also had a re-release and added 45.8M to their record.
