Avatar Beats Avengers: Endgame for Highest-Grossing Film
AVENGERS: ENDGAME – Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Endgame has lost its place at the top of the all-time highest grossing movies as James Cameron’s Avatar has reclaimed the top spot.
In 2010, Canadian film director James Cameron’s science-fiction movie “Avatar” surpassed his epic romance and disaster film “Titanic” to become the highest-grossing movie of all time.
Then in 2019, Marvel’s “Avengers: Endgame” overtook Avatar. Cameron took to his social media account to congratulate producer Kevin Feige and the actors behind the superhero movie.
James Cameron wrote, “To Kevin and everybody at Marvel, an iceberg sank the real Titanic. It took the Avengers to sink my Titanic. Everyone here at Lightstorm Entertainment salutes your amazing achievement.”
