Avatar released in 2009 and it took Hollywood 10 years to replace it from the top spot with the Highest Grossing Film Of All Time globally. The film was Avengers Endgame which released in 2019. But the win was short-lived as Avatar has reclaimed its past glory, all thanks to China. James Cameron's directorial was released in China last Friday and it has already managed to take the top spot. Avatar is now at $2.802Bn while Endgame bagged $2.797B. Both the films are under Disney's umbrella especially after it acquired both Marvel Studios and Fox. Russo Brothers have thus passed the Gauntlet back to where it belongs - To Cameron.
