Even before its re-release in the US, Avengers: Endgame has beaten James Cameron’s Avatar’s original box office record before the latter was re-released again. The 22nd film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe had made $2.75 billion (Rs 19025 crore) in the two months of its release. On the other hand, in its original theatrical run Avatar made $2.749 billion dollars (Rs 18957 crore) worldwide. When it re-released in 2010 it grossed $33 million more.
After Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Avengers: Endgame has become the second-highest grossing film in the US as well as in India. In India, the film has had a fabulous run and crossed over Rs 300 crore within two weeks of its release. The re-release will have a post-credit scene that was not in the original theatrical cut. The film will also have a special tribute to Marvel’s creator Stan Lee who passed away last year.
Avengers: Endgame is at the brink of defeating Avatar’s box office record and become the highest-grossing film of all times. In order to defeat Avatar, the film only has to garner around $35 million. Avengers: Endgame is directed by brothers Anthony and Joe Russo and is the sequel to Avengers: Infinity War. The film stars Robert Downey Jr, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Don Cheadle, Paul Rudd, Chris Pratt, Brie Larson, Benedict Cumberbatch, Josh Brolin, Tom Holland, Karen Gillan, Zoe Saldana, Samuel L Jackson, Jon Favreau and others.
