Endgame Records Shattered in a Month…
James Cameron’s “Avatar” still sits at the top of the worldwide box office with $2.79 billion, while “Endgame” is currently at $2.62 billion.
It’s not out of the realm of possibility for “Endgame” to reach “Avatar’s” record number. The coming summers will even become bad for the movie.
If international box office doesn’t work in “Endgame’s” favor this summer, it will likely end its time in theaters as the number two movie both globally and domestically.
Endgame” faces even greater challenges in the record books.
It’s currently the 22nd highest-grossing movie domestically.
“Endgame” is the second-biggest movie domestically at $780 million.
It will absolutely make more before its theatrical run is over, but would need a miracle and then some to top “The Force Awakens.”
