It's official, by uniting their forces, the Avengers team did it. They surpassed Avatar as the most successful movie of all time.
As of last Friday, the movie' total worldwide gross hit $2,789.2 million with just $500,000 to go before surpassing Avatar’s $2,789.7 million record. By Sunday, that gap closed with Endgame reaching $2.79 billion.
Obviously, these records are, in a way, pointless. The reason being that they are not adjusted for inflation. If we would do so, Iron Man and his friends would easily be beaten by Rhett Butler and Scarlett O'Hara in Gone With the Wind. But as Scarlett had screamed, she'd never be hungry again and would never let anyone surpass her.
