A while back, Avengers: Endgame became the highest grossing movie ever. Now, thanks to a fortuitous re-release, Avatar has reclaimed that title.

James Cameron’s epic space adventure has been re-released in Chinese cinemas, and has already taken in enough yuan to leapfrog the Marvel movie and reclaim its throne.

Worldwide, Avatar has now grossed an estimated $2,798,579,794. That’s a bloody lot of dollarydoos, it is!

Directors of Avengers: Endgame the Russo Brothers have been gracious in “defeat”, posting the following cool message to Twitter:

The moral of the story? Uh, If you’re making a movie and want it to be a money-spinning box office smash, start the title with ‘Av’, we guess.
