LOS ANGELES (AP): The global box office has a new king in Avengers: Endgame.

The superhero extravaganza this weekend usurped Avatar to become the highest-grossing film of all time, with an estimated $2.79 billion in worldwide grosses in just 13 weeks.

Avatar held onto the record for a decade at $2.789 billion.

The title comes with a few caveats, however, including the fact that Avatar's grosses are not adjusted for inflation.

Also, domestically, Avengers: Endgame is No 2 to Star Wars: The Force Awakens by around $80 million.

Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige gave a shout-out to Avatar director James Cameron Saturday night at San Diego Comic-Con for holding the record for so long.

Feige also noted the inflation technicality and said Cameron will probably hold the title again someday.
