Avatar director James Cameron congratulates Avengers Endgame on TOPPING all-time record

For the last 10 years, Avatar has dominated the top spot as the highest-grossing movie of all time. With a box office run of $2.789 billion, it looked like the 3D sci-fi epic could never be beaten. In fact, Cameron’s Titanic was No 2 for years with over $2 billion too. However, a few months ago Avengers Endgame beat the latter and now has dethroned Avatar as the biggest film of all time with a current taking of $2,790,216,193.

And as is a tradition when this record is broken, the defeated director congratulates the new winner.

This morning James Cameron tweeted from the official Avatar account: “Oel Ngati Kameie, I see you, Marvel.

“Congratulations to Avengers Endgame on becoming the new box office king, Jim Cameron.”

He added “It’s just, come on guys, there are other stories to tell besides hypogonadal males [men who produce too much testosterone] without families doing death-defying things for two hours and wrecking cities in the process. It’s like, oy!”

“Not that I don’t love the [Avengers] movies.”

Meanwhile, it’s possible that Cameron could retake the crown with another Avatar re-release.

The first of his sequels arrives Christmas 2021, and we wouldn’t put it past the director to re-release the original film again beforehand.
