Avengers: Endgame finally surpasses Avatar to become highest-grossing film 

Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige announced the benchmark during the recent Comic-Con held in San Diego

Published: 21st July 2019

One of the most anticipated and hugely discussed topics in Hollywood was whether Avengers: Endgame would break Avatar's record for being the highest-grossing film at the worldwide box office. Disney has announced that the superhero film, which released this April has collected $2,789,200,000, which is only $500,000 short of Avatar's collections. It is expected that the weekend sales will eliminate this gap between the collections of both these films. 

The Russo brothers' film has been in theatres for 13 weeks and Disney recently re-released the movie with additional footage. 

In a statement, Alan Horn, co-chairman and chief creative officer of the Walt Disney Studios, said, "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. Of course, even with the passage of a decade, the impact of James Cameron's 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. 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." 

Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige also announced the benchmark during the recent Comic-Con held in San Diego.
