Will Avengers:Endgame beat Avatar?

Yes 68 80.00%
 
No 17 20.00%
 
Total:85

Yeah I believe it'll overtake Avatar, and I do think there's a possibility it could become the first film ever to pass $3b... it deserves it too!

I hope so, i feel lime the number 1 film should be one that actually has some impact on pop culture. Avatar outside of the 3d gimmick, which is dead now anyway, had no real impact on cinema or pop culture. No one remembers the characters, or quotes the dialogue or talks about it in any way except for its status as the highest grossing film.

Honestly, if we took inflation and ticket prices into account I'd say this ranking would look a whole lot different. Doesn't mean the accomplishment EndGame is setting isn't incredible per say, but when the price of tickets is almost the double from when I saw Avatar back then (Around 8 CAN$) and now you gotta shelve 15 bucks just to go see one ...

I understand what you're saying but that's just a gray area we shouldn't discuss.  Like you can talk about how technically Gone with the Wind should be #1 domestically if we're talking inflation, as well it sold the most tickets if you were to count most all time ticket sales/viewers.  And I remember reading how Avatar made as much as it did because majority of people that watched it bought the 3D ticket (as it was made for 3D) so lots were paying double the ticket price for that.  Again, this is why its just a gray area many don't discuss.

Personally I thought Avatar was a mediocre movie with amazing 3D effects, but with 3D screens and ticket sales drastically declining James Cameron better hope his Avatar 2-6 are really good storywise lol

I'm from Canada too but I dont think our ticket prices have gone up to $15, at least not in my area/city/province? lol  Currently at $12, and $12 CAD is like $4 US loll jk jk 



At the rate it's going, and with all the hype turning out to be real, I think it can. :)



Some days I just blow up.

I think the more interesting question is if it can pass Star Wars 7 in the Domestic Box Office. That one is a tighter race.

It'll easily take out Avatar. I don't think it'll beat Force Awakens in the US but you never know.
Also, feel you on MUA. I have watched Endgame a few times already and it makes me wanna play a good Marvel game.

Yes, without a doubt. It will probably get to 3 billion as well.

The real even battle is against TFA for domestic gross, tho.



Bet with Intrinsic:

The Switch will outsell 3DS (based on VGchartz numbers), according to me, while Intrinsic thinks the opposite will hold true. One month avatar control for the loser's avatar.

That is a specific character based game. I'm referring to ensemble titles. 



Breaking the record for fastest movie to $2 billion by a wide margin makes it seem almost inevitable it will surpass Avatar. It passing the US gross of Star Wars: The Force Awakens seem a much bigger challenge. The international market (especially China) has grown a lot in the last 10 years.
