Avengers Endgame Global Box Office Passes Titanic

Avengers Endgame’s global box office has passed the non-adjusted box office of Titanic. Avengers Endgame only trails Avatar at about $2.8 billion. Avenger Endgame should easily get another $300 million in the USA alone and another $700 million overseas. It will thus pass $3 billion and could reach the inflation-adjusted total for Avatar.

If there is exceptionally strong repeat viewing then Avenger could top $1 billion in the USA and $1 billion in China.

  1. Ending didn’t make any sense. How did Cap end up on that bench in the same timeline as he left when it was established in mid-movie that such an action would create an alternate timeline?


    Saw the movie & enjoyed it. However, I do feel that Iron Man’s choice at the end was mishandled. He didn’t want to give up his family, even in service to humanity, but in the end he didn’t have to. Would have been a far more difficult & satisfying choice if he was forced to pick between personal happiness & saving the universe.

  3. Well. I’ve heard super-hero stories referred to as modern day mythology, but not because we believe in them actually existing.

    I rather expect that in times past, people being much like they are today, there were many, probably even a majority, who found it useful to give lip service only. Heck, failing to give lip service in some religions, even today, can get you executed. Of course, peer pressure, and fear of becoming estranged from family and friends, is usually enough to get people to conform.

    Gods may be created by zealots to explain things, and conmen to enrich themselves, but they persisted for the majority because of their entertainment value, and the way they allow some vicarious wish fulfillment.

  4. OK. I’m not a big follower of the Avengers in comics. I was into X-Men comics back in the 90s, when a lot of the stories later turned into movies appeared.

    After that the exposure I have to those franchises come mostly from the movies.

    I recall that for the X-men at least, their biggest threats were (in order):

    • regular humans with an ill intent, either politicians trying to control them or shady military guys/entrepreneurs trying to exploit their powers and regular folks who just hated mutants.
    • evil mutants and meta-humans with world domination or an apocalyptic/messianic agenda.
    • Disturbed over-powered mutants who couldn’t control their powers.
    • Alien beings (Skrulls, Shi’ar, etc) with a fully alien agenda.

    If the Avengers comics followed that same trend, then the MCU has indeed departed from the comics.

  5. Mind, in the actual comic books, most of the villians are humans, often without any super powers, the occasional alien threat is the exception, not the rule.

  6. I don’t deny the cathartic power of fantasy for dealing with some real world topics.

    But in the case of the MCU, IMO it has strongly departed from what happens in the real world nowadays.

    Of course, expecting otherwise would be foolish. We don’t have semi-gods, super-humans, nor aliens nor wizards walking around.

    The MCU world also has its enemies well cut off: alien powers seeking out-of-this-world macguffins. Evil humans aren’t more than an episodic threat to the vigilantes watching over the world.

    Probably that’s why we like these movies: to have the enemies well defined and clear cut, with existential threats above the ordinary and that there are some higher powers watching over us.

    That’s unlike the real world, where the threats are mundane yet ugly, people start seeing unforgivable enemies on fellow citizens, joining moral crusades for insignificant transgressions and where the enemy isn’t really that well defined (but we yearn for it to be). And where there are no super-heroes to save us.

  7. In this movie…. I agree. It’s really just about wrapping up the last ten years of the MCU. However, the other Marvel movies explore some interesting ideas. Avengers Civil War is a good example where Cap and Tony basically square off on security vs freedom. Captain Marvel explores power and if it should be used even if someone has it.

  8. Passable pop corn movie.

    A little bit messy but overall understandable what’s going on.

    It’s the kind of movie the freedom given by CGI fx would end up producing and requiring.

    After the mish-mash of aliens, wizards and super-humans in it, the fantastic world completed its divorce from the real one it pretended to adhere to in the beginning, though.

    That in itself is not a problem (fantasy exists precisely to escape the real world) but let’s stop pretending the subjects and events there represent anything on the real world.

    I say it because of the unavoidable sterile polemics about politics in it.

  9. I saw it in theaters. Even thought is was 3+ hours long… it didn’t feel like it. I’ll probably go see it again while it’s in theaters tbh.
