'Avengers: Endgame' is a BEAST of a movie. It has already broken multiple records and it pacing to be one the highest grossing films EVER!
After just two weeks in theaters, the Marvel film has officially surpassed 'Titanic' as the second biggest movie of all time. The director of the 1993 blockbuster -- James Cameron -- went to social media to tip his hat to Marvel Studios for the historic box office success of their latest release - 'Avengers: Endgame'.
“Titanic” raked in a mighty $2.187 billion in global ticket sales. So far, “Avengers: Endgame” has amassed $2.27 billion and counting. Reminder that 'Titanic' was released over 25 years ago.
“An iceberg sank the real Titanic. It took the Avengers to sink my Titanic,” Cameron wrote Thursday on Twitter. “Everyone here at Lightstorm Entertainment salutes your amazing achievement.”

“You’ve shown that the movie industry is not the only alive and well, it’s bigger than ever!,” he continued.
Thus far, “Avengers: Endgame" has earned $644 million in North America and $1.6 billion overseas to date. Among its numerous benchmarks, “Avengers: Endgame” became the fastest film to gross $2 billion. It beat “Avatar,” the previous record-holder, by over a month.
Of course, Cameron is still king of the box office — for now. “Avatar” has remained the biggest movie ever, with $2.78 billion worldwide, for a decade. If “Avengers: Endgame” keeps steamrolling the box office at its current pace, it could give Cameron’s sci-fi epic a run for its money. Will the Avengers take over the the throne? We shall see, but it seems it just may happen.
