Endgame Sinks Titanic in Box Office

Twelve days was enough for Avengers: Endgame to become the second biggest blockbuster in history. Marvel's latest production has already defeated Titanic, and may soon dethrone Cameron's Avatar.

Avengers: Endgame continues its triumphant march through the cinemas. The production has already generated more than 2,188 billion dollars. Thus, after twelve days from the premiere Titanic was deprived of the second place of the most profitable hits of all time. Avatar remains the leader with a result of 2.78 billion, but it seems that the end of its reign is near.

The achievement is even greater because, in the case of Titanic, the amount of $2.187 billion collected by the film includes the results of both the first movie version from 1997 and the 3D version released fifteen years later.

Marvel fans hope that the latest Avengers will be able to beat Avatar. Especially after the director of the latter, James Cameron, expressed a very negative opinion about the cinematic stories about superheroes. He expressed the hope that the audience would soon become bored with productions in which, as he put it, "hyper-gonanded males without families doing death-defying things and wrecking cities in the process".

Equally impressive is the pace at which Avengers: Endgame earns profit. It only took 11 days for the film to cross the threshold of $2 billion. It took Avatar 47 days and 48 days in the case of Avengers: Infinity War.

Success of Avengers: Endgame also lifts the previous film from this universe, Captain Marvel. Last weekend the production was ranked fifth in the American box office, increasing its result to 1.12 billion dollars.

Currently, among the ten most profitable films of all time, there are as many as five Marvel's productions. Apart from Avengers: Endgame and Avengers: Infinity War, the list also includes two earlier parts of Avengers and Black Panther.
