The Marvel Cinematic Universe film has surpassed the box office collection of James Cameron's Avatar and emerged as the highest earning film in the world. As of July 14, the film had taken in $847 million in worldwide ticket sales.

Avengers: Endgame beats Avatar to become highest grossing movie of all time.

The new records have been penned down by Variety, who state the film officially passed $2.7892 billion at the global box office on Saturday. They wanted him to bring his "severed head" to the last scene of "Avengers: Endgame".

James Wan was already a big name in horror movie-making when he directed this entry in the "Fast & Furious" universe, which sees Deckard Shaw seeking revenge for his comatose brother.

Cameron's long-delayed Avatar 2 is scheduled to open in theatres December 17, 2021.

Here are the top 10 box office juggernauts of all-time, in a ranking which hasn't been adjusted to take inflation into account. "Gone With the Wind", first released in 1939, tops the list on that basis.

Barr said he could find no evidence of obstruction. "We hope it won't end up being a dud", Nadler said of Mueller's testimony.

However, details of what exactly will happen and who might appear at this point are being more closely guarded than one of the series' infinity stones.

After many years of speculation, the studio confirmed Black Widow will lead a film focused on the female character slated for May 2020.

The actor will reprise his God of Thunder role for Thor: Love and Thunder.

During Comic-Con, co-directors Joe and Anthony Russo also revealed a brand new trailer for the film's upcoming Blu-ray release, stuffed with behind-the-scenes footage, gags, and more.

Studios didn't believe it was actually possible to get Endgame to beat Avatar, however, their re-releases helped earn that top spot. Then, with a few days to go until San Diego Comic-Con, it looked like Endgame might have a shot a winning even without that re-re-release.

In a statement, Alan Horn, Disney Studios co-chairman and chief creative officer, said the record was a testament to the "power of movies".
