Avengers: Endgame takes over from Avatar as Hollywood's biggest film ever
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.
Feige also noted the inflation technicality and said Cameron will probably hold the title again someday.
