James Cameron predicted Avatar will retake the top spot at the box office from Avengers: Endgame.
A few months after debuting in theaters, Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Endgame claimed the title of the highest-grossing film of all-time from James Cameron’s Avatar after a decade-long reign. Of course, James Cameron offered his congratulations to the Avengers: Endgame team on their victory and the Avatar director even expressed relief upon seeing that movigoers were still willing to flock to theaters for event films even in the age of streaming.
However, James Cameron noted that he believes Avatar will be able to reclaim the top spot at the worldwide box office through a re-release ahead of the upcoming sequels. In fact, James Cameron went as far as saying it is a “certainty” that Avengers: Endgame lose to the title to Avatar in the future:
“I think it’s a certainty. […] But let’s give ‘Endgame’ their moment and let’s celebrate that people are going to the movie theater.”
With Avengers: Endgame grossing a worldwide total of $2.79 billion compared to Avatar‘s $2.78 billion global earnings, James Cameron seems to believe the gap between the two blockbusters is easy for his film to cross:
“I don’t want to sound snarky after I took the high road (by offering congratulations). But they beat us by one quarter of a percent. I did the math in my head while driving in this morning. I think accountants call that a rounding error.”
James Cameron is set to release four Avatar sequels every other year on the pre-Christmas weekend starting in 2021. The Avatar sequels star Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana, Sigourney Weaver, CCH Pounder, Cliff Curtis, Kate Winslet, Stephen Lang, Giovanni Ribisi, and David Thewlis.
Here is the official synopsis for Avengers: Endgame:
The grave course of events set in motion by Thanos that wiped out half the universe and fractured the Avengers ranks compels the remaining Avengers to take one final stand in Marvel Studios’ grand conclusion to twenty-two films, “Avengers: Endgame.”
Directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, Avengers: Endgame stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Don Cheadle, Paul Rudd, Brie Larson, Karen Gillan, Danai Gurira, Benedict Wong, Jon Favreau, Bradley Cooper, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Josh Brolin.
Avengers: Endgame is now available on Digital HD, 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, and DVD.
