‘Avengers: Endgame’ Out-Earns ‘Titanic,’ James Cameron Congratulates Marvel

Avengers: Endgame has smashed box office records since its debut, and hasn’t stopped since. One of the film’s most significant accomplishments was passing $2 billion in global box office revenue in two short weeks. It now joins the same high-earning club as Avengers: Infinity War, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Titanicand Avatar.

James Cameron directed these latter two films, previously the two highest-grossing movies of all time. When Endgame crossed the $2 billion mark, it broke Cameron’s monopoly on the top two spots to become the second-highest-grossing film of all time. It is now less than 500 million away from surpassing Avatar to become the highest-grossing film of all time. Even if its doesn’t hit that mark, there’s no reason to downplay the massive success the film has already achieved: Titanicreleased in 1997, had maintained its record for two decades before Avengers: EndgameWhile Avatar is a more recent film, its earnings are impressive… but, of course, Avengers: Endgame already beat its opening weekend.

After passing Titanic, James Cameron tweeted his congratulations to Marvel Studios on the success of the film:

This isn’t the first time studios congratulated others on a successful weekend. Star Wars did the same with Marvel Studios when Infinity War broke the record back in 2015.

 

Will James Cameron have to make another tweet if Endgame passes Avatar? Most likely.
