Avengers: Endgame falls behind Avatar in box-office collection

Avengers: Endgame which was re-released in some countries, witnessed a gross collection of $7.8 million, earning $5.5 million in the United States alone. This was possibly an attempt to put the Endgame ahead of James Cameron’s Avatar in its all-time box office collection. This, however, looking at the numbers so far, seems a tad too difficult a task now.

It would take Endgame another $26 million to come at par with Avatar. Avatar’s total collection stands at $2.788 billion, on the other hand, Endgame has now collected a total of $2.76 billion. Usually, the re-runs are released months after the original movies’ release, unlike was the case with EndgameAvatar had received a thunderous collection of $33 million on its re-release.

Since the world would be witnessing a sequel to Avatar in the year 2021, Forbes says that it would be highly favourable for Disney to let Avatar have the number one spot for now, for this very reason.

The re-release came with a small treat of sorts for its fans, featuring an introduction from the director Anthony Russo, a tribute from Stan Lee, an unfinished deleted scene showing Mark Ruffalo’s Hulk and a slight glimpse into Spider-Man: Far From Home

The tribute from Stan Lee was a touch too emotional, wherein Marvel showcased footage from his old interviews. In the United States alone Avengers: Endgame has earned $841 million. Furthermore, it is the highest-grossing superhero movie of all time and the highest-grossing film of 2019. Forbes has also predicted that Endgame will approximately fall short of $15 million from Avatar’s record and touch $850 million in the United States of America.

The re-release added, initially intended hype to Sony and Marvel studio’s Spider-Man: Far From Home. Spider-man himself would face the aftermath consequences of a time when there isn’t Iron Man or other key Avengers around to facilitate him with any help.
