Avengers On Top

For just about a decade, Avatar (2009) has held the honor of being the highest grossing film or all time and this last week it was officially announced that Avengers: Endgame (2019) has taken that top spot.

Overall, during its initial run and re-release, Avatar brought in a total total of $2,789,679,794 and as of this post, Avengers: Endgame has brought in $2,790,849,263. This is amazing, however, there is a caveat that has to be mentioned: if adjusted for inflation the amount that Avatar brought in would be $3,254,227,126.10. 

We’re not exactly sure how this calculated or if that is even taken into consideration but James Cameron and his company have officially conceded the top spot to the Russo Brothers directed film and Marvel Studios with a heartwarming post:

Congratulations to everyone at Marvel Studios and everyone involved in making Avengers: Endgame!

Disneyland’s birthday and Soundsational

We had the opportunity to see Disneyland’s 64th Birthday Celebration and catch Mickey’s Soundsational Parade on it’s final day.  If you didn’t get a chance to see either or just want to relive them, check out the videos below.

A striking resemblance?

A​lso, Gavin mentioned a great post by Mickey’s Soundsational Parade designers, Kevin and Jody, where they talked about the moon on the Mary Poppins float bares some similarities to one of our favorite chimney sweeps.

Until next time! °o°
