Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Endgame has broken all sorts of box office records having grossed over $2.2 billion in the 13 days since it was released. So many that it has surpassed James Cameron‘s Titanic ($2.1 billion worldwide).
While Cameron has gone on record about how superhero movies are played out, the director displayed a very gracious gesture by congratulating Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige on accomplishing this rare achievement. Check out the tweet that Cameron sent out below.
Avengers: Endgame is quickly showing how much of a box office powerhouse it has become since it opened 12 days ago. After it debuted to a very impressive $1.2 billion worldwide, the film continued its dominance at the theaters, overshadowing the likes of newcomers like Long Shot, The Intruder, and Uglydolls. Not only that, but it’s reached $2 billion faster than any other movie; only four other films have made that rare accomplishment. Additionally, it has eclipsed James Cameron’s Titanic box office totals. More on the report here below.
Avengers: Endgame featured so many memorable comic book movie moments that made audiences go through a roller coaster ride of emotions. Though there were big action spectacles and very sad goodbyes, the epic finale also had some very funny moments marked by snarky insults and name-calling, most of which came from Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) and Rocket (voice of Bradley Cooper).
These were mostly observational insults that targeted another person’s intelligence or body figure. But it was all in good fun, and to lighten the mood. So check out some of our favorites from Avengers: Endgame, below.
Disney released a tiny movie some of you may have heard about over the weekend. It’s called Avengers: Endgame. After 11 years and 21 films, it has come down to this one movie that simply smashed box office records. Having seen it four times already, I can tell you that it is one of the best movie-going experiences I have had in a very long time. Watching the press screening is one thing, but watching it with the general public is something else.
And it shows, as Avengers: Endgame was not only the number one film this weekend, taking in $350 million domestically, but also smashed a few other records in the process such as the biggest opening day and weekend, which were previously held by films like The Force Awakens and Avengers: Infinity War. But now the question is, can it pass Avatar? More on this report below.

It wouldn’t be the least bit cliche to say that all good things must come to an end. For Marvel Studios, all roads that have been paved by the last 21 movies in the last 11 years have led up to Avengers: Endgame. What directors Anthony Russo and Joe Russo have done is truly indescribable. It’s a true gift to the fans who have been a part of this journey since 2008. To put it simply, it is the epic conclusion to an 11-year story arc.
Filled with a wide range of emotions from joy, sorrow, laughter, and excitement, Avengers: Endgame will surely go down as one of the greatest superhero movies of all time. Check out my full review below.
