Is this the Endgame for Avatar?

James Cameron’s Avatar film broke many records when it first tantalized film goers but Avengers: Endgame is catching up quickly!

As of the recording of this episode, Avengers: Endgame has become the fastest film to pass the $2 billion global box office milestone, a title last held by Avatar. More amazing is the fact that while Avatar was able to hit that milestone in 47 days, Avengers: Endgame used the Infinity Stones to snap away that record and then reaching it in only 11 days. 11!  Yes! ELEVEN!

Avengers: Endgame is only one of five films in history to pass the $2 billion mark. The others are:

  • Avatar – $2.78 billion
  • Titanic – $2.187 billion
  • Star Wars: The Force Awakens – $2.06 billion
  • Avengers: Infinity War – $2.04 billion

Only time will tell if Avengers: Endgame  will be able to take the top spot from Avatar but many of us are definitely rooting for it to happen!

 

Thanks, Tom!

If you haven’t yet seen Avengers: Endgame then heed the words of Tom Holland because watching the latest Spider-Man: Far From Home trailer contains some major spoilers. If you have Avengers: Endgame or just don’t care… enjoy!

Let’s play the feud!

Avengers: Endgame and Game of Thrones has been on mind’s of many as both franchises approach a close to their current story lines. SNL (Saturday Night Live) has taken notice of this and pokes fun at both franchises in this cold open sketch. 

Until next time! °o°
