Despite the drama over the past two months, I still hold a bigger grudge against the Star Wars fandom.

But fandom rise and fall, in time, MCU fans will probably know what it's like to sit in a corner of a conversation. I recall in the heyday of TFA, Star Wars fans were doing mental gymnastics trying to justify TFA's worldwide performance being greater than that of Avatars (a truly amusing and sad attempt), while simultaneously sneering at Asian film taste (especially Chinese), which is something I will never forget. Where are these people now?

It's amazing how fanboy obnoxiousness and franchise financial performance has an almost perfect positive correlation. 

That's ridiculous. Even if EG passes Avatar it's still less impressive than Avatar and considerably less than Titanic.

Yeah, I agree that sneering at the BO taste of a region of the world is very unforgivable. 

 

Fortunately, there isn't any other fandom that does that with any other region, no one at all :rolleyes:

I guess that calling out loud the hypocrisy here would enter "personal attack" territory, so I won't comment any further, but damn

I loved the previous Batman films and loved Aquaman. I'm a CBM fan, independent of MCU/DC. Loved Wonder Woman and will love the sequel.

Depends on how you define impressive. That is a very subjective word

I would say that Titanic had the most impressive run of any movie at least in the past 30 years. It was number one at the box office for 15 weeks, made $600 million domestically in a time when ticket prices were much lower, and movies didn’t benefit from 3D or IMAX ticket sales, and made $1.2 billion overseas in a time when  China was nowhere near the powerhouse market for movies that it is today.

Dirty dancing had the same effect albeit at smaller scale. Although at much much lower budget

 

and talking about impressivenes - EG is first film ever to get WW crown without dom/os/china crown. For me that’s impressive. Like country winning olympics without any gold medal

EG and Avatar are both impressive in their own way. EG made $2.7B+ in 9 weeks whereas Avatar required 34 weeks to gross that much... Avatar was kind of original IP or first movie which then went on to become highest grossing movie of all time but then Endgmae is 22nd movie in the long running MCU which beat Avatar's first run when sequels to movies nowhere grow as big and sequels generally don't hold WW crown that much. That itself is the proof of how Endgame is impressive...

I think this is the best way to look at it. Both had huge, and very different, box office runs. Simple.

Or we go back to reality and realise avatar was far more impressive.

 

A2 will show you how small 2.78b is for a 2019 top grosser

@Deep Wang

Factually wrong yet again JB33.

 

I cant make any clubs for A2 yet JB33, I thought you would know that with the amount of hilarious Avatar delay jokes you make.

They are both impressive!  

 

EG opened $100m higher than IW, which broke the opening weekend record last year.  That is pure insanity! 

 

Yes, Avatar had very long legs and and a thoroughly massive overseas gross in the time before overseas really expanded.
