Avatar Re-released in China Reclaims the Title It Lost to Avengers: Endgame


Avatar, which James Cameron sat in the director’s chair, faced and won again with Avengers: Endgame, which stole its title in 2019. The movie, which was re-released in China, regained the title of the highest-grossing movie with the revenue it earned. Avatar, which was published in 2009 and directed by James Cameron, had a success that we will talk about for years. Combining the genres of science fiction and fantasy, the film topped the lists as the highest-grossing production for nearly 10 years.

But Avatar’s success lasted until Marvel’s Avengers: Endgame. When Avengers: Endgame came to theaters, the movie managed to beat Avatar’s record. Avatar, the former leader of the list with $2.7897 billion, lost its place to Avengers: Endgame, which grossed $2.7902 billion. What we expected due to this small difference has come true today.

It was recently announced that Avatar will be re-released in Chinese cinemas. The movie began airing in cinemas in China yesterday and grossed $3.5 million on its first day. Thus, the total revenue of the film rose to $2.7926 billion. This officially confirmed that Avatar has regained its top-grossing movie title. So why was Avatar re-released in China? China has requested that popular movies like Avatar be released in honor of the reopening of theaters. Avatar was a production that met with great interest in the country. When the movie was released in China in 2010, it earned a total revenue of $206 million.

While we’re talking about Avatar’s remake of Avengers: Endgame, they basically show the same thing: Disney is always at the top of the list. Incorporating 20th Century Fox in 2019, Disney now holds the rights to Avatar along with Avengers: Endgame.
