Marvel’s blockbuster end to the Avengers saga, Avengers: Endgame stands poised to beat Avatar’s record for making the highest at the box office ever. But the target is high and timeless. Will Marvel fans have to settle for a defeat? We’ve got all the updates.
How Much And How Soon?
Endgame needs to 7.2 million dollars more to beat the box office record of James Cameron’s sci-fi film Avatar. And there are only three weeks left to make it as it’s scheduled for release on home video following that.
Avatar currently holds the box office record for the highest-grossing film ever at 2.788 billion US dollars. It was released back in December 2009, and the crown it holds hasn’t been taken down for almost a complete decade.
Why A Victory Is Possible
Avengers: Endgame‘s current box office total amounts to 2.781 billion dollars. Out of these, a massive 851 million dollars come from the US itself and another 1.9 billion worldwide from other places in the world. Last weekend, it made 2.8 million USD at the box office, out of which 1.7 million USD was made in the US.
Victory is close, more so than ever.
The Re-Releases: A Successful Attempt?
Endgame was re-released on June 28 hoping to beat Avatar while also promoting Marvel’s latest film- Spider-Man: Far From Home. The re-release included some special content including a message for the fans from director Anthony Russo, a deleted scene with the Hulk, a Stan Lee tribute and a teaser for Spiderman: Far From Home. And if that’s not enough to compel fans to go back, the references and nostalgia that Spiderman: Far From Home is now giving the world should certainly be.
But it’s a fierce battle for the Avengers, who are now up against the new Lion King, Once Upon A Time in Hollywood and Marvel’s own Spider-Man: Far From Home in their box office battle.
