James Cameron's 'Avatar' beats 'Avengers: Endgame' at the box office to be biggest blockbuster of all time

Marvel congratulated “all of the Na’vi Nation” for “reclaiming the box office crown”, and, in a reference to Endgame, added: “We love you 3000.”

Marvel Studios has congratulated James Cameron on reclaiming the ultimate box-office feat.

Following Avatar’s re-release in China, the 2009 blockbuster became the highest-grossing film of all time once again, having been knocked from the top spot by Avengers: Endgame in 2019.

At the time, Cameron took the news in his stride, congratulating Marvel Studios but also stating that he believes Avatar would reign victorious again at some stage in the future.

“I think it’s a certainty,” he toldUSA Today, adding: “But let’s giveEndgametheir moment and let’s celebrate that people are going to the movie theatre.”

He wasn’t wrong. The re-release means that Avatar’s overall global box-office haul sits at an estimated $2.802bn (£2.012bn) next to Endgame‘s $2.797bn (£2.009bn).
