‘Avengers: Endgame’ becomes highest-grossing film ever

‘Avengers: Endgame,’ the Disney and Marvel blockbuster, will move past ‘Avatar’ on the list of all-time highest grossing films on Sunday in its 13th weekend of release, Disney reported Saturday night.

‘Avatar,’ James Cameron’s science fiction film set on the planet of Pandora, held the record for 10 years.

The latest ‘Avengers’ film, starring Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Evans, has made more than $2.789 billion worldwide.

“A huge congratulations to the Marvel Studios and Walt Disney Studios teams, and thank you to the fans around the world who lifted ‘Avengers: Endgame’ to these historic heights,” Alan Horn, co-chairman and chief creative officer of The Walt Disney Studios, said in a statement.

To get to the top spot, ‘Endgame’ passed some of the biggest blockbusters in film history such as ‘Titanic,’ ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ and its predecessor, ‘Avengers: Infinity War.’ l
