“Avatar,” James Cameron’s science fiction film set on the planet of Pandora, held the record for 10 years.
The latest “Avengers” film, starring Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Evans, has made more than $2.789 billion worldwide.
“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,” Alan Horn, co-chairman and chief creative officer of The Walt Disney Studios, said in a statement.
To get to the top spot, “Endgame” passed some of the biggest blockbusters in film history such as “Titanic,” “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” and its predecessor, “Avengers: Infinity War.”
Robbins added that the title of highest-grossing film of all time is “the cherry on top for Marvel’s first decade.”
“Never before had audiences experienced an episodic, cinematic journey over the span of 11 years,” Robbins added. “It’s nearly impossible to predict something like that, just as ‘Avatar’s’ own run was widely unexpected. In a way, they share that common bond.”
“Endgame” shattered records when it opened in late April.
“Even with the passage of a decade, the impact of James Cameron’s ‘Avatar’ remains as powerful as ever,” Horn added. “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.”
