Avengers: Endgame has finally hit theaters, and it’s already making a killing at the box office. In its first weekend, the movie made $357 million domestically and $859 million internationally, for a total of over $1.2 billion. That makes it the highest-grossing opening weekend of all time—but is it the highest-grossing movie of all time?
Here’s a look at the five movies that have made the most money at the worldwide box office (not adjusted for inflation).
Avengers: Endgame – $1.2 billion
Avatar – $2.78 billion
Titanic – $2.19 billion
Star Wars: The Force Awakens – $2.06 billion
Jurassic World -$1.67 billion
As you can see, Avengers: Endgame still has a ways to go before it topples Avatar from its perch atop the box-office charts. However, considering that Avatar was released in 2009 and had the benefit of being shown in 3D (and thus charging higher ticket prices), Endgame could very well end up as the highest-grossing movie of all time by the end of its theatrical run.

Endgame is a 2019 American superhero film based on the Marvel Comics superhero team the Avengers, produced by Marvel Studios and distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures.

The film was announced in October 2014 as Avengers: Infinity War – Part 2. The Russo brothers were brought back to direct in April 2015 after previously directing Winter Soldier and Infinity War. Whedon did not return because he did not have time to work on a script for the film due to his work on other projects such as Batgirl. In July 2016, Marvel removed the film’s title following DC’s announcement of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice as well as its own title change for Infinity War from Part 1 to Part 2. Filming began in August 2017 at Pinewood Atlanta Studios in Fayette County Georgia with a significant number of sets used for interiors while location shooting took place around metro Atlanta including Downtown Atlanta for various sequences during filming which continued until January 2018.

While there is no denying the movie’s potential, it has yet to dethrone Avatar as the highest grossing movie of all time. However, with Endgame expected to bring in over $2 billion at the box office, it has a chance to claim the title.
The marketing of Endgame
Endgame is being marketed as the highest grossing movie of all time, but is it really? The answer may surprise you.
Endgame has a lot going for it. It has an all-star cast, impressive special effects, and a built-in audience of Marvel fans who are eager to see how the Avengers’ story ends. But is it really the highest grossing movie of all time?
In terms of box office sales, Endgame is certainly doing well. It has already made over $2 billion dollars worldwide, and it is still showing in theaters. However, when you take into account inflation and ticket price increases, Endgame isn’t actually the highest grossing movie of all time. When adjusted for inflation, Endgame falls behind Avatar, Titanic, and The Wizard of Oz.
In terms of ticket sales, Endgame is also behind Avatar and Titanic. So far, Avatar has sold about 22 million tickets worldwide, while Titanic has sold about 21 million tickets. Endgame has sold about 20 million tickets so far.
So while Endgame is doing well at the box office, it’s not actually the highest grossing movie of all time.
