Will Avengers:Endgame beat Avatar?

Yes 68 80.00%
 
No 17 20.00%
 
Total:85

About time we have an actual great movie holding the box office record rather than a tech demo for 3D cinemas.



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.

I just watched the movie last night. I was one hour in line to get the tickets, and I almost couldn't make it. There were about a dozen seats left by the time I got there.

And all I could say is, I don't know what the fuss is all about. Considering the amount of interest this movie is getting, I thought it would be an incredible movie, but it isn't. The pacing was a little off, there was too much fake drama. The action scenes, especially the big one, were nice. And there were a lot of holes within the script. Which is normal considering the time travel technicalities, which they always get wrong. I wish they'd stop making movies with that theme.

I don't quite understand why this is so popular. Would anybody please explain it to me?

For the same reason why I don't like modern pop music, or how some other people don't like rap or metal. Or how some people like FPSs and others don't, or like how some like Final Fantasy and others don't.

Not everybody "gets it" with Endgame, because not everybody gets as excited about comic book films, and some may absolutely despise them.

There is absolutely no accounting for taste. I loved Endgame. Millions of others did as well. Why? I don't know. It just clicks for me, in the same way prog rock and pork rinds and 90s anime do. Certain things simply tickle my neurons in just the right way.

Isn't inflation-adjusted Gone with the Wind, like, way above 3 billion? More than half of it in the US too...

Adjusted Avatar should be a bit higher than its numbers nowadays, as well.

Edit - somewhat sad to think the next Avatar and Star Wars are the most likely candidates for $2 billion+ and Disney is the only one profiting and pocketing all that entertainment money.

Second fake edit - at the same time, buying Marvel and Lucasfilm for some $4 billion each was the best entertainment industry deal of all time.

Crazy how they most likely made that money back already.



Avatar released in 2009. Avengers: End Game released in 2019.
Population in 2019 roughly 1 billion more than 2009 and more people are going to see the latest films and obvious the latest film
Over hyped blockbuster films frequently get huge sales regardless if the success is deserved or not. Lower budget films with better acting and better stories rarely get the commercial success they deserve.

But we're talking about Endgame holding the box office record?

Passing Avatar is an absolute given at this point. Passing $3B also shouldn't be very difficult for it. It's an absolute monster overseas. It'll probably crap out around 3.3-3.5 billion.

That'd be huge if it happened!! :D

It's definitely going to slow down a lot, but I don't see them not hitting the 3 billion mark. I feel my estimate above may be a little high but it would be almost impossible to not pass Avatar now :)



I was contemplating to create exactly this thread.

Yes it will.

Yes. James Cameron grossing over $6.5 billion (adjusted) and 14 oscars between two movies without any sort of franchise or build-up around them is definitely a most impressive achievement than the MCU, same for George Lucas with Star Wars, and the first one specifically.

Well I hope it gets there, since it's the superior movie to Avatar.



Some days I just blow up.
