The Avengers: Endgame directors aren’t being too arrogant about the film’s recent box office record, as the Russo Brothers have praised Avatar director James Cameron’s films in a new post.
The post came from the Russo Brothers’ official Instagram account. In the post, they praised the works of James Cameron and say that he was a big inspiration to them as filmmakers and can’t wait to see what he does next. The pictures attached to the post have two heads silhouetted saying “Holy Sh*t!” at several of James Cameron’s iconic films.
The James Cameron films that are on display includes The Terminator, Aliens, Titanic, and Avatar. You can see the full post below:
From the look of things, James Cameron was a big influence on the Russo Brothers!
As we all know, the Russo Brothers’ latest film, Avengers: Endgame, broke numerous box office records when it was released earlier this year. The big question on everyone’s mind was if it would be able to dethrone Avatar and become the highest-grossing film of all time. Over the weekend, it finally beat that record.
Avatar has held the record of the highest-grossing film of all time for nearly ten years with a $2,787,965,087 worldwide box office haul. Over the weekend, however, Avengers: Endgame finally ousted Avatar off its throne, with its current box office count at around $2,790,591,417. But, from the look of things, the Russo Brothers are being very professional about the victory.
What do you all make of this? Are you glad that the Russo Brothers are being so nice about the box office triumph? Let us know what you think in the comments below!
