Damn from 2003-2011? Titanic was really crazy because that 1.1b in 2003 is actually really damn impressive.

  

 Actually I'm going to unretract that statement of yours, I think ROTK might be just as impressive as Endgame.

Yep, if we remove Anomaly Avatar, ROTK would have been highest grossing film for 8 years, not TDK, Shrek 2, Pirate 2, Finding Nemo, Harry Potter 4, 5, 6, and Toy Story 3 none of them were able to outgross ROTK.

I think the reason that ROTK didn't threaten Titanic all that much, like how Endgame is threatening Avatar now. Was because China is dormant in those 6 years between ROTK and Titanic, if China increased by 10 times like it did during 2009 - 2019, and ROTK took advantage of that.... It's not inconceivable that we had a 1.4B+ grosser back in 2003! That is definitely impressive ;)

I didn't remove them, I just simply cant see how that is an disadvantage for movies in this era, especially for blockbuster.

I do agree streaming affect box office of the mid budget drama/comedy or non-action/VFX film, but at the space of VFX blockbuster, technology advancement cohabit with them well.

 

Blockbusters are getting more and more money nowadays, while non VFX/action oriented films struggle. I called them income gap of the box office and they just got worse and worse.  The days of Hangover/Blindside or Ted kind of success are becoming less and less likely.  

 

 

 

I can't make you see logical things but legs are getting shorter for every single movie. It's getting harder every year for every movie to sustain anything. If you want to pretend it doesn't impact it I can't stop you.

Hmm.

 

Wouldn't you say we were already in the social media and 3d age when Avatar was released?

 

It is a great achievement of course no one is doubting that.

 

 

Not really no. We were in the start of it. iPhone came out in 2008. Avatar might have exploded even more like Titanic in 2000

This thread has become a tragedy. 

 

Anyways, EndGame still getting those coins. 

I'll just sit and patiently wait to see just how big that pile of coins is when all is said and done....

Titanic was amazing it it's time. Avatar was amazing in it's era. End Game was amazing in it's era.

 

Lotr and Harry Potter did great but less so overall. Like Star Wars TFA shattered DOM but just did very good internationally.

Unless some miracle expansion or stabilising. Beating Avatar is dead.

 

It was a nice dream, for however long it lasted.
