Avengers: Endgame to Pass Avatar to Become the No. 1 Global Release Ever


In its 13th weekend of release, Marvel StudiosAvengers: Endgame will overtake the global box office record that has been held by Avatar for the past 10 years.

Commenting on the achievement, 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.”

Avengers: Endgame shattered records when it opened day-and-date April 26 with $1,223.6 million globally, including $357.1 million domestically and $866.5 million internationally. It crossed the $1 billion mark in just five days and the $2 billion mark in 11.

To date, it is the No. 2 domestic and international release of all time, with $853.4 million and $1,935.8 million, respectively. It’s the No. 1 release of all time in 25 territories, and the No. 3 highest-grossing film of all time in China with $629 million.

As of yesterday, Avengers: Endgame’s global gross is $2,789.2 million. This is just $500,000 behind Avatar’s lifetime global total of $2,789.7 million, and Endgame will close this gap by tomorrow.

Avengers: Endgame’s estimated total includes reported daily and weekly grosses to date, as well as a near-final reconciliation of territory grosses as the film approaches the end of its run.
