The 30 all-time highest-grossing films in the world
'Avengers' has just dethroned 'Avatar'
It's been a big year for Marvel, particularly with the immense success of 'Avengers: Endgame,' which has become the blockbuster of the decade. The superhero franchise epic, in its 13th weekend of release, has now surpassed even 'Avatar' on the list of all-time highest-grossing films.
James Cameron's sci-fi film had previously held the top spot for 10 years, but the culminating 'Avengers' installment brought superhero fans of all ages to theaters around the world.
That said, neither of these film franchises are over, and the 'Avatar' series will have a chance to take back its box-office crown, as Disney reportedly plans for four sequels between 2021 and 2027.
But let's take a moment to celebrate 'Endgame' while it still reigns supreme, having surpassed some of the biggest blockbusters in cinema history. Check out this gallery to see just how much the film grossed worldwide, and which other films remain in the top 30.
