which took the top spot with its $2.7902 billion take that year.

Avatar passes Avengers Endgame to retake box office

The surge in Avatar ticket sales comes as China theaters are re-opening in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.

With the rest of the weekend’s box office still ahead of it, Disney worked overtime to ensure it would take the top spot.

It’s also possible that Endgame might retake its crown: Disney has ben known to put its Marvel films back in theaters as part of marathons or fan events before major new entries come out.

So it’s entirely possible that Endgame could return to theaters to make a run at Avatar’s new record,

Of course, the real winner here is, as usual the Walt Disney Company. With Disney having bought 20th Century Fox (and with it, the Avatar films) back in 2019.

Avatar producer Jon Landau said today, “We are proud to reach this great milestone, but Jim and I are most thrilled that the film is back in theaters during these unprecedented times, and we want to thank our Chinese fans for their support. We are hard at work on the next Avatar films and look forward to sharing the continuation of this epic story for years to come.”
