“Avengers: Endgame” has been declared the highest grossing movie in the world!
According to Forbes, Marvel and Disney last night announced that the new global total for the movie was $2.7892 billion in raw grosses.
That puts it $500,000 away from the $2.7897 billion for James Cameron’s “Avatar” during its theatrical release in 2009 and 2010.
Once this weekend’s ticket sales are tallied, the tentpole will exceed the $500,000 needed to surpass the ”Avatar” benchmark.
Marvel and Walt Disney used the San Diego Comic Con panel last night to make this announcement.
The record seemed certain after the film’s absurd $1.223 billion opening weekend.
However it took a re-release with extra material to push it over the line.
