Avengers: Endgame was finally dethroned at the US/Canada box office this weekend, with John Wick 3 taking the No. 1 spot. The Marvel movie, did, however reach $771 million to surpass James Cameron’s Avatar as the No. 2 highest-grossing movie ever in the US and Canada. Endgame still trails Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which has made $937 million in the US and Canada to sit in the No. 1 position.
On a worldwide basis, Endgame has now made $2.62 billion. It still trails Avatar, which is the biggest movie in the history of film with $2.78 billion globally. Endgame will stay in theatres presumably for a while longer, so it will be interesting to see if it’s able to catch up to Avatar before its theatrical run comes to an end.
Last week, Endgame surpassed Cameron’s other box office smash, Titanic, to become the No. 2 movie of all time globally. Cameron released a nice statement in which he congratulated the team at Marvel for the incredible achievement that he says demonstrates that the film business is alive and thriving.
The next MCU movie is Spider-Man: Far From Home, which is a Sony production made in partnership with Marvel, and it releases in July. After that, Marvel plans to reveal more details about MCU Phase 4.
