Marvel’s Avengers: Endgame beats Titanic’s $2.12bn box office record

Marvel's Avengers: Endgame

In just a few weeks following its release, Marvel‘s highly-acclaimed film, Avengers: Endgame, is said to have surpassed the 21-year-old record set by Titanic which grossed  $2.12bn in the box office.

With this record, the Marvel‘s blockbuster is now the world’s second highest grossing film of all time, with an estimated worth of $2.189 billion.

There’s an $18.9 million difference between Avengers: Endgame and Titanic: $619.7 million was grossed domestically, that is within the US domestic box office. This surpassed the $600.8 million Titanic grossed during its initial theatrical run after its opening in December 1997.

Titanic also grossed an additional $58.6 million when it was re-released in 2012 and 2017.

Due to varying ticket price inflation rates and unreliable record keeping, it is virtually impossible to reasonably adjust for box office inflation worldwide.

However, fans everywhere are hoping the film could break Avatar‘s box office records of $2.788 billion which is made from December 2009 through to February 2010.
