Marvel might have beat Avatar when it released Avengers: Endgame, but industry analysts believe that it may take years and years before the second half of Joe and Anthony Russo’s two-part Avengers movie gets unseated from the top spot at the box office.
Taking a look at the blockbusters that have been released the past few years, Indie Wire believes that it may take a few decades before Endgame ever gets dethroned as the highest-grossing film of all time. According to the entertainment news outlet, folks in the Hollywood community aren’t that sure whether studios are ever going to produce projects of the same budget as Endgame. Marvel spared no expense on the movie – after all, Endgame was supposed to culminate the last ten years of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
It was the right decision, of course. Endgame was the biggest movie of 2019, raking in $357 million at the domestic box office, $843 million at the foreign box office, and then $1.2 billion worldwide, all during its opening weekend.
The film managed to gather so many attendees during its opening. According to Indie Wire, more than 30-35 million moviegoers in North America flocked to cinemas to watch Endgame during its opening.
Earning more than $2.8 billion during its theatrical release, Endgame finally beat Avatar as the highest-grossing film of all time. We’re not entirely sure what conditions need to be met for another movie to beat Endgame, but it’s definitely going to take a long, long while before the film gets pushed out of its seat in blockbuster history.
Avengers: Endgame is available on Digital HD, Blu-Ray, and DVD.
