"Avengers: Endgame," within only ten days after being launched, has earned a significant profit of up to $1.91 billion, which breaks the box-office record.

Avengers: Endgame, within only ten days after its launch, has earned a big receipt of up to $1.91 billion, which breaks the record at the box office. Currently, it is ranked 5th position among the highest grossing movies globally.

Especially, Avengers: Endgame is highly expected to beat Star Wars: The Force Awakens (grossed $2.06 billion) and another Marvel’s movie Avengers: Infinity War (raked in $2.04 billion) to become the 3rd highest grossing movie ever, only standing behind Avatar and Titanic with $2.78 billion and $2.18 billion, respectively.

According to Bloomberg's report, Endgame is expected to break the movie Avatar’s record to be the top spot among the world’s highest-grossing film. Moreover, the report also indicates that as soon as Avengers: Endgame grosses an amount of $2 billion, it would be in want of $789 million to topple Avatar's earnings ($2.78 billion).

Unprecedentedly, the ticket office multiplier of Avatar was 11x, while the one of Avengers: Infinity War was only 2.43x. It means that, if Avengers: Endgame does the same thing as Infinity War, its lifetime takings will reportedly achieve $2.92 billion globally.

Whether this movie could beat the Avatar’s record or not, it’s doing exceedingly well at its ticket run in a few weeks. Nonetheless, Russo Brothers the director duo feel almost dissatisfied by this massive success of the movie. On talking with ReelBlend Podcast, director Anthony Russo specified that fans pay more concentration on the film’s box office records than other criteria such as performances, music, visual effects, writing, and so on.

He shared that, to be honest, he feels almost disappointed to see his film performing exceedingly well as the story of its box office is controlling the conversation, literally. What’s more, it is not the story’s most gripping part.

Joe Russo continued, “It's always about the narrative, too, of these movies in the marketplace. How did it do? Did it break a record? Did it beat the last one?” He said that those questions are greatly important to a movie’s life. And, they were expecting that this movie would do well in the worldwide market and break the global record. Then, it was hoped to win the domestic office box, which used to be dominated last year by the film Infinity War. Joe added, “Otherwise, frankly, [for] some people looks like a failure.” And, it is crazy for such a film to have those types of demands.

If Avengers: Endgame doesn’t succeed in breaking Avatar’s record, its flop will never make the film lose its attractiveness. Still, it will be a fantastic movie for sure; however, the news won’t be like this anymore, and it’ll only involve how Endgame isn’t the highest-grossing movie ever.

Now, fans are expecting that this film breaks the record of Avatar as in last year's one interview, director James Cameron revealed that he expects “we’ll start getting Avenger fatigue here pretty soon.”
