Finally! Massive congratulations to Disney and Marvel for finally toppling Jim. No easy feat!

 

This is a huge win for the movie industry in general. I was tiring of bespoke single vision movies and think that more interconncted universes and committee based film making are honestly better for those on the ground to have their voices heard.

 

I'm just glad Disney did it fair and square in the end. Enjoy the victory MCU fans, it's tough at the top!

Well said... :bravo:

You're probably right about that, Avatar is the end of a long and glorious era, started with Birth of a Nation. Well at least for now, until re-release.

If not for Avatar 2's existence, I would probably think that Endgame keeps this record for a while, since original films don't break out anymore, and no franchise commands as much attention as MCU right now. Avatar 2 is also a sequel so that won't buck the trend.

Someone did a thought exercise about this a while ago which I thought was interesting, if not for the Cameron two films, the highest grossing film worldwide would have been handed over to a sequel when TPM (1999) surpasses Jurassic Park (1993), and from that point on, the highest grossing films worldwide would have changed hands many mores times (TPM - HP1- LOTR3 - HP8 - Avengers - JW - TFA - EG), all but one (HP1) are sequels. 

 

 

Excellent point NC, especially for those who believe being the highest grossing film as a sequel/franchise film is a big deal when we're in the franchise era.

 

Without Jim the highest grossing film for the last 20 years would have been a sequel or HP1, Jim is a force of nature and should be put as an outliner when doing analysis.

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.

Yeah, it's Jim and Titanic & Avatar that made highest grossing film worldwide a special crown to hold.

If not for them, we would have been seeing highest grossing film of all time on average every two years, popping out left and right. It's a situation of :

highest grosser come and go, greatest of all time runs will be remembered.  ;)

Natalie Portman as lady Thor...how will they make this work...Portman is, how can put this, "vertically challenged" 🙂. She's not the most physically intimidating, so her casting as an astrophysicist was perfect. 

 

Lady Thor in the comics suggested someone a little more statuesque, like a Charlize Theron or Cate Blanchett. Or even the Sif actress, Jaimie Alexander!

 

Tessa Thompson has height issues as well 🙂. But they sorta made that work...

That's a great point, Avengers:FG will be forgotten forever as soon as Avatar is re-released.

If they were going to do an Avatar rerelease it would absolutely make the most sense to do it next winter, a year before Avatar 2 and at a time when Disney doesn't have Star Wars slotted. I'm not convinced they will rerelease it though.

I'd be fine with that as well, but having Avatar re-take it does have a few benefit from my (Jim Stan) point of view.

 

1. Avatar was by far the more impressive run taking 2009 global market condition into consideration, it's also an original films that broke out, in that sense, it feels right for it to have the crown. MCU fans would have had that crown for a while, so Endgame did have its moment.

 

2. So that Avatar 2 can be marketed as the sequel to the highest grossing film, which is a first since.... Empire strikes back

 

3. So when Jim Cameron threepeats with Avatar 2 (it would be again, surpassing himself and not a film not made by him)...

I think Avatar will only get double features with A2 during preview night like IW got with EG and full gross will go to A2

Brother IW was never the highest grossing movie of all time and wasn't released 10 years ago. It would have never made sense to have a proper re-release for IW. Plus, people who will go see Avatar aren't necessarily like hardcore comicbook fans willing to sit 6 hours in a theater to watch movies. You will be able to catch Avatar on its own before A2 comes out don't worry

Denying what?

Yes Avengers:FG finally pased Avatar, but remember it was supposed to pass it 20 times already. I thought Avatar was going to be done and dusted a couple months ago, the fact Disney had to fudge it actually pretty funny as I thought it was going to do it on it's own two feet.

 

Time at #1:

Jim: 22 years

Disney's Marvel Studios: 1 day

 

If Avatar is re-released this christmas as a 10 year anniversary then we'll get to see a new record.

 

Least time above 0 spent at WW #1, which would be fitting for a film that had to fudge it.

Oh, I feel your sadness Jimbo

You will lose the only thing you use in your conversation with other members to bring other movies down

 

Now you will have to say Avatar which is the SECOND highest grosser is more impressive than X movie

 

Btw, forgot to give you your medal

Congratulations buddy😉
