Avengers Endgame beats Titanic box office record. Avatar director James Cameron congratulates the Phase 3 Marvel movie.
After two weeks in theaters, Avengers Endgame sinks Titanic as the second biggest movie of all time. Avengers Endgame box office has amassed $2.27 billion and counting.
“An iceberg sank the real Titanic. It took the Avengers to sink my Titanic,” director James Cameron wrote Thursday on Twitter. “Everyone here at Lightstorm Entertainment salutes your amazing achievement.”
James Cameron noted that despite naysayers forecasting the death of multiplexes, “Avengers: Endgame” proves audiences will still come out for the right theatrical experience.
“You’ve shown that the movie industry is not the only alive and well, it’s bigger than ever!” the Avatar director said.
A James Cameron interview comments came under fire last year and had MCU fans mad at the Terminator director regarding the Marvel Avengers movies.
“I’m hoping we’ll start getting ‘Avenger’ fatigue here pretty soon,” James Cameron said to IndieWire. “Not that I don’t love the movies. It’s just, come on guys, there are other stories to tell besides hyper-gonadal males without families doing death-defying things for two hours and wrecking cities in the process. It’s like, oy!”
Avengers: Endgame has earned $652.9 million in North America and $1.6 billion overseas to date. Among its numerous box office records, “Avengers: Endgame” became the fastest film to gross $2 billion. It beat “Avatar,” the previous record-holder, by over a month. Avengers fatigue is not a thing and comic book movies are here to stay. Can the James Cameron hate stop now Marvel fans?
James Cameron movies is still king of the box office records — for now. Avatar box office numbers has remained the biggest movie ever, with $2.78 billion worldwide, for a decade. If Avengers Endgame box office numbers keeps it up at its current pace, it could give the biggest James Cameron film Avatar a run for its money.
