Endgame also has a box-office record that “Avatar” set up nearly 10 years ago over 73 million USD. But leveling that gap seems to be an impossible task for them.
The gap between Avengers: Endgame and Avatar has only about 73 million USD. Avengers has made money in full capacity in the past 40 days, while director James Cameron’s blockbuster takes months and once released again to create a record of $ 2,788 billion globally.
However, the ability of Endgame to establish a new milestone is not really too high. And Avengers blockbusters probably need a new re-release that can dethrone Avatar.
For the first time, domestic sales fell to below 1 million USD.
In June 3, Avengers: Endgame “only” brought Disney and Marvel Studios about 860,000 USD in North America alone. This is the first time after 39 days of screening, blockbuster super hero “unpopular” $ 1 million at the hometown box office. This number is 82% less than last Monday.
The decline rate was faster than the Avengers: Infinity War itself, but this was natural because in the first three days alone, Endgame brought in more than $ 357 million in domestic.
With total North American revenue at 868.1 million USD, the ratio is 2.24 times higher than that of the week before. This number of Avengers: Endgame is 2.63 times fold. Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015) or Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017) has reached 3.78 times and 2.82 times more.
However, both Star Wars films benefit from a long Christmas holiday. Avengers: Endgame now faces too many new competitors starting from 12/5.
It is a bit unsettling when “the first time under $ 1 million in North America” of Avengers: Endgame occurs earlier than many other blockbusters, such as The Dark Knight is 41 days, Jurassic World is 46 days, Black Panther is 53 days, Avatar is 81 days, or Titanic is with a record of 102 days.
Avatar passing opportunity has become fragile?
Nearly 40 days ago, the Avengers: Endgame has crumbled a lot of box office records, and all ended up concerned whether the superhero blockbuster could surpass the record of $ 2,788 billion worldwide that Avatar set up. This is almost 10 years or not.
Back in the last three days, Avengers: Endgame has an additional $ 16.4 million worldwide. Accordingly, the film’s total performance by June 3 was $ 2.713 billion, including $ 815.5 million domestic, and $ 1.89 billion from international box offices.
Unable to dethrone Star Wars: The Force Awakens in North America when blockbuster Star wars collected 936.6 million dollars in early 2016, Endgame probably could not reach the record level of 2.029 billion USD international revenue that Avatar is holding.
Things are getting more and more difficult with the superhero team. From the week of 12/5, they were repeatedly attacked by Pikachu, assassin John Wick, Aladdin, Godzilla beast at the box office. Here, The Secret Life of Pets 2’s pet group and the X-Men team in Dark Phoenix continue to drain Endgame’s chance to make money.
The majority of international observers say that unless a miracle is created, or later reissued, the chance for Avengers: Endgame to overcome the record of an increasingly smaller Avatar.
However, Disney can still feel happy. After acquiring Fox, they naturally took ownership of the Avatar brand. When Avatar 2 hit theaters at the end of 2021, the “rat house” could still promote that this was a sequel to the biggest blockbuster in history.
Marvel Studios took more than 10 years to create the climax of the Avengers: Endgame. During that time, a series of Hollywood studios followed them to make film universes. But surely no one has achieved great success like Marvel Studios.
The studio has the right to be proud of the things that it has done, but many in the team acknowledge that they will never be able to create a monumental masterpiece and make the whole world go crazy. so much.
While the future of Marvel Cinema Space is a big question mark, Star Wars shows signs of decline, Disney needs more brands to reinforce its film empire. Acquiring Fox, the “rat house” is like “tiger growing wings” and Avatar is their biggest new weapon.
When the Avengers: Endgame is unable to surpass Avatar in revenue, the box office record created by director James Cameron’s blockbuster will stand again, maybe another 5 or 10 years. Because even Avatar 2 is unlikely to cause a big fever like Endgame now.
In fact, the “rat house” is simultaneously holding the highest grossing North American movie (Star Wars: The Force Awakens), the highest-grossing Hollywood movie in China (Avengers: Endgame), and the film has a joint venture. Highest global receiver Avatar.
Watch out that the Avengers: Endgame can’t overcome Avatar can make MCU fans a little sad. But Disney is in fact very beneficial in advertising campaigns for their other brands later.
