  1. "As you can see, I am not dead!" Thinking of it, that’s basically what Endgame said to Avatar late in its run lmao.
  2. Dude is already super rich, his net worth is $700 million. The real question to ask about the Avatar saga is whether it turns him into a billionaire.
  3. To make room for Star Wars? Ugh. I like the series, but c’mon. That trilogy is not going to light the world on fire, Avatar 3 will slaughter that movie. Doesn’t matter if you’re pessimistic or optimistic about it, no way Star Wars outgrosses Avatar 3.
  4. That would be some crazy shit... I can’t believe that all three Avengers movies re-released and surpassed Endgame! On a real note, at this rate of delays Cameron should just wait until he can release 2 and 3 a year apart. Then do the same for 4 and 5 a couple years later. Like IW and EG but twice.
  5. I can’t tell if this is another Shivampa alt, or if it is JamesCameronScholar pretending to speak in broken English again.
  6. The Argentina number is weird because that economy has plummeted and experienced hyperinflation. Most others, with stable economies, are much more accurate numbers. I agree in a lot of those markets, specifically Europe, Avatar definitely beat Endgame. However, on paper with USD as the only metric, it looks like a slaughter because of Avatar’s amazing exchange rates compared to Endgame’s horrible rates. However, while Avatar solidly beat Endgame in Europe, it is not absolute destruction as it appears looking solely at USD gross. Still Endgame’s weakest major territory.
  7. Charlie dying and becoming Jat-One is a better story of rebirth than Dark Phoenix.
  8. I think that if it got within one or two million I could see a Labor Day expansion or something to get it over. Disney has shown a willingness to push for milestones if they are that close. I do agree it should happen by itself though.
  9. Yeah, it can get at least $5 million more domestic, if not more. Overseas has a few million at least left in the tank, especially with that South Korea re-release.
  10. Do you guys think it can crawl to $2.8 billion? I think it can, but I’m not sure. Should get super close if it misses, and I’m sure Disney would get it over the hump in that case. We have been distracted by Avatar, but $2.8 billion is a huge, huge milestone. Uncharted territory, and much bigger than $700 million domestic, a mark Disney was willing to push Black Panther over.
  11. It’s easier because they have so many alts! We should make some too, make the conversation look like fifteen people when it’s more like five.
  12. This shit doesn’t even count because Marvel fans and fanboys watched the movie a lot! What the fuck? Why is it fair for fans to rewatch a movie and boost its gross? Every movie that becomes number one should start with no fans, and in some cases, end up with none. Along with no cultural impact beyond being an amusement park ride in the theater. #Bait #GetToPage357
  13. @Zatt was right Does it involve Endgame’s Box Office? #ChinaRe-ReleaseConfirmed
  14. 100%. But because those had such a high price, I don’t think it makes much sense to adjust for ticket price inflation when Avatar’s tickets are already higher than the average ticket price today. But of course it is a huge credit to that movie, and no money should be subtracted or downplayed because of that. Getting people to spend more on a ticket is no easy feat.
  15. EXACTLY. These people were using those factors to state why it couldn’t reach these heights, saying that they were huge disadvantages. Now that it actually beat Avatar, this is somehow the greatest, most unfair set of advantages any movie has ever had. And I personally hate adjusting for inflation, especially for Avatar. You can’t even really accurately adjust for foreign inflation. Avatar’s average ticket price was higher than today’s, and it had exchange rates that gave it upwards of $500 million compared to today’s rates. But nobody states that Endgame sold substantially more tickets because that requires a bit more knowledge and research than the adjusted for inflation circle jerk.
  16. We won, Mr. Stark. It’s all sinking in still, it actually happened. At least the slow crawl was actually a lot quicker than we thought it would be. Many feared it would take until Labor Day.
  17. I’d prefer Avatar 2 to get it rather than an Avatar re-release. Just seems more fitting and suspenseful. Though I hope at least one gets it, we need more big shake ups like this to keep the box office entertaining. Otherwise we may need to wait until Avatar 5 or Avengers 7, which would be pretty boring.
  18. We need the Gone with the Wind fan club to dispute this! #TheRealKing. Feige was very gracious though, could not have handled it better.
  19. All I meant is that it would be cheap because it would be re-releasing yet again. I agree that Avatar’s Special Edition had leaps and bounds more effort than Endgame’s new content. I actually would like to see it again in theaters and am fine with it taking back the title, I just thought your idea of not congratulating Endgame because of its new version to get over Avatar was not fair. Especially when advocating for another Avatar re-release to take it back.
  20. So Endgame passing Avatar’s original run without any help and then passing its re-release total with a half assed re-release/expansion is not worth congratulating, but Avatar re-releasing yet again would be this great thing? That would be way cheaper than anything Endgame has done in its run.
  21. Just get to $2.8 billion Endgame. You can rest then. Part of the journey is the end. It actually happened guys!
