Endgame’ As Highest-Grossing Movie Ever Worldwide – .
As expected in the past few days, James Cameron’s Avatar has swapped places with Avengers: Endgame and reclaimed the title of the world’s top-grossing film of all time. The 2009 relaunch of the 3D science fiction phenomenon in China was estimated to cost an estimated RMB 58 million (US $ 8.9 million) by 5:00 p.m. local time on Saturday after being re-released in the market on Friday. This closes and exceeds the $ 7.82 million gap between the two pre-China re-release films. Disney / Marvels Endgame already won the world’s highest crown from Avatar in July 2019. The current (and liquid) global avatar grand total is an estimated $ 2,798,579,794 versus Endgame’s $ 2,797,501,328.
The numbers for Avatar, which was originally released in China in early 2010 and grossed nearly $ 203 million at the time – a massive figure before the market began to expand exponentially – will continue as of today and in the coming days increase. The film is currently leading the advance sales until Tuesday in the Middle Kingdom.

Avatar currently has a 9.2 score for Maoyan, compared to a previous score of 9.1, and the service is forecasting a finish of RMB 378.2 million ($ 58 million) for the reprint. There’s not much else on offer until Warner Bros / Legendary’s Godzilla Vs Kong, which is dated March 26th.
We expect Disney (which owns both Avatar and Endgame) to provide official numbers later today and be updated accordingly.
A re-release of China Avatar had long been debated, but the film suddenly appeared on the calendar earlier this week. Available on most of the IMAX network and in 3D (formats used in China), it is the first non-local film to top the weekend box office in China this year. This session puts the Chinese New Year phenomenon Hi Mom in second place.
Cameron spoke to China.org on Thursday about how the film was as relevant today as it was more than a decade ago. “We have climate change, we have deforestation, our relationship with nature is more vulnerable than ever and Avatar is about those things, but it’s also a timeless film. Some people criticize the stories for being too simple. It wasn’t that simple – it was universal. It was something that anyone, anywhere, could understand and relate emotionally. “It’s worth noting that Avatar has had a handful of re-releases since its original release, while Endgame made essentially all of its money in 2019.
Cameron has worked diligently on the sequels. Disney has planned Avatar 2 for December 16, 2022. Part 3 for December 20, 2024; Part 4 for December 18, 2026; and part five for December 22, 2028.
