Avengers: Endgame continues to reel throughout the globe in prizes and records. A vivid reddit graphic demonstrates how huge the film’s achievement was, even in comparison with other Marvel juggernaut films. This year, the business has had such a clear achievement course, and visual aids like the one on this page do a wonderful job of placing in perspective the heft of these hits.
Over 310 million tickets sold
The bar chart demonstrates over 310 million tickets sold at the top of Endgame. That amount extends by a significant margin all the other Avengers movies, including the initial outing. Even powerful performers like Black Panther and Spider-Man: Far From Home can’t keep a candle to the influence the swan song had over audiences for the team’s initial iteration.
It’s been almost six months since Endgame first struck theaters and it’s been fast climbing through the record books. These impressive numbers of box offices made the film the all-time top-grossing film. In that respect, James Cameron’s Avatar used to be the title holder, but it couldn’t stand up to a huge crossover re-release. Even Avengers: The film that followed it couldn’t stand up to Infinity War.
Best Box-office hit
Endgame topped Infinity War with a longer theatrical run that it passed with more than 140 days running. Even after all these months, the movie is still able to draw thousands of dollars in box office revenue. Black Panther is up next as that film ran for 175 days last year. While that film was a huge moment for Marvel Studios as well, the sheer ticket sales numbers show that Endgame is on a level all its own.
Avatar might have lost its spot in the record books, but James Cameron is hopeful about the future of the movie industry after the massive success of Avengers: Endgame. The director had previously expressed concern about superhero films and their omnipresent place in our popular culture as of late. But, he’s changing his tune here.
Cameron talks about Endgame
“It gives me a lot of hope,” Cameron said. “Avengers: Endgame is demonstrable proof that people will still go to movie theatres. The thing that scared me most about making Avatar 2 and Avatar 3 was that the market might have shifted so much that it simply was no longer possible to get people that excited about going and sitting in a dark room with a bunch of strangers to watch something.”
