Avatar is once again the highest grossing film in history, surpassing 'Avengers: Endgame'

As expected, Avatar is once again the highest-grossing film in history after its re-release in China, surpassing 'Avengers: Endgame'.

As expected, Avatar (2009) is once again the highest-grossing film in history, beating Avengers: Endgame after its re-release in China. The Marvel movie stole the crown from James Cameron's when it raised an impressive $ 2.79 billion in 2019.

But as China reopens cinemas across the country, following the lockdown due to coronavirus lockdown measures, old movies are being re-released, in the absence of new ones. Most film studios partially or completely halted their productions in 2020 due to the closure of cinemas around the world.

Avatar is one of those old movies that can be seen again in the cinema as new feature films arrive. The box office advantage will continue to grow as the weekend continues and more people return to the movies to see it.

But 'Avatar' will not be the queen forever, 'Endgame' could return to the first place

That does not mean that in a few weeks or a few months Avengers: Endgame will not be the highest-grossing movie in history. Marvel Studios could adopt a similar strategy or prior to the premiere of Black Widow ( Black Widow ) later in the year. If so, you could have enough money to return to the top spot again.

Avatar remained in first place in the global box office for almost ten years and Titanic, also James Cameron in the second. The real winners? Disney, of course, made the historic purchase of 20th Century Fox in 2019. With the acquisition, they obtained, among many other things, the distribution rights to Avatar and all its sequels.

That puts the five highest-grossing movies in history under the Disney umbrella — and of course, they can all conveniently be seen on Disney Plus. A simple, but quite clear, way to understand the reach that the American company has in the multibillion-dollar audiovisual entertainment industry and everything that derives from it.
