Avengers: Endgame Beats Avatar’s Original Box-Office Record!

Avengers: Endgame may be getting a re-release this Friday, on June 28, 2019, but it’s already broken Avatar’s worldwide box-office record. Don’t take it as a whole. Because this record is actually the original box-office collection that James Cameron’s sci-fi epic made, globally.

Endgame has now made a whopping $2.75 billion worldwide, since its release in April end, earlier this year. And with this, it has gone past the total of $2.749 billion that Avatar made in its first theatrical run before a re-release pushed it to $2.788 billion.

So, indirectly speaking, Avengers: Endgame has become the number one film of all-time when it comes to the ‘first theatrical run’, even before it’s yet another arrival in theaters tomorrow. Currently, it’s just $33 million behind Avatar. Seems like it can make it, now, certainly.

But the sad news is that not every theater in the world will be playing this MCU epic. Because the re-release is only for some selected theaters in various countries. Another sad part, especially for the Indian Marvel fans, is that Endgame won’t be having a re-release in India either. Since there was no official word from Marvel India regarding this.

The 22nd MCU installment stars iconic Hollywood actors like Robert Downey Jr., Josh Brolin as Thanos, Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Brie Larson, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Mark Ruffalo, Paul Rudd, Karen Gillan, Benedict Cumberbatch, Bradley Cooper as the voice of Rocket, and Tom Holland among many others.

In its opening weekend itself, the most anticipated film of this year had created history by crossing the mark of $1 billion worldwide! And domestically too, it went beyond the expectations, taking in an unprecedented $357 million in North America alone—it beat Avengers: Infinity War’s 2018 record of $258 million.

In our review of Avengers: Endgame, the film was declared an enormous success and great accomplishment by Marvel Studios, in a way it managed to end a saga which was started a decade ago, way back in 2008, with Iron Man.
