2019’s sure been a year. For South Africa, that means extreme highs and depressing lows, but one things for sure, the country didn’t stop…
It’s only gone and done it. After its global re-release, Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Endgame has finally surpassed Avatar as the biggest movie of all time.
The decade-long reign of James Cameron blue-people-in-space CGI extravaganza is now relegated to second place, with $2.789-billion to its name.
Endgame, with a slim margin, holds the top spot with $2.79-billion, according to data from BoxOfficeMojo.
It’s been a long time coming too. Endgame was released at the end of April, enjoying an abnormally long lifespan as a blockbuster movie.
Avengers: Endgame fell well short of $3bn worldwide, but nontheless claims the title of biggest movie in history
Considering that it was Titanic that held the crown for more than 12 years, and Avatar a decade, we could be in for a long wait before Avengers: Endgame is knocked off its perch.
Marvel Studios’ this weekend also rolled out its plans for the Cinematic Universe’s fourth phase, so don’t be surprised to see another Marvel flick competing with Endgame in the coming years.
