How likely is Avengers: Endgame to beat Avatar al time box office record.
Having released a little over a month ago, it’s safe to state the publicity and energy surrounding "Avengers: Endgame" has started to slow down a bit. While there’s no uncertainty that we’ll be talking about the latest MCU movie for some time to come, most Marvel fans have moved their attention to future films, especially since Spider-Man: Far From Home is expected out in half a month.
However, there’s still a lot of reason to keep your eyes on the latest Avengers outing. As it enters its seventh end of the week in theaters, Endgame is now slightly more than $70 million away from outperforming 'Avatar' as the highest-grossing movie of all time. As of Thursday, June 6th, Marvel’s newest release has earned quite recently over $2.716 billion, as detailed by Box Office Mojo. With Fox’s epic sci-fi sitting at $2.788 billion, Endgame is around $72 million from ousting the prevailing champ.

As expected, the weekend gross has been declining ever since it started its theatrical outing on April 26th. While it began solidly with an astounding $357 million domestic run during its first few days, the numbers have been dropping from that point forward. A slight bounce back on Memorial Day weekend has, however, certainly helped, and if Endgame figures how to remain in theaters for one month or two it’s likely that it’ll catch up to Avatar.
Unfortunately though, if the Russo brothers’ latest film gets any opportunity of dethroning James Cameron’s sci-fi epic at the box office, MCU fans might need to make a concerted effort to get moviegoers to spend for another screening. Not long ago, it hit a new low when it came to "day by day" ticket deals and couldn’t gross more than $1 million on June 3rd.

With a bunch of summer blockbusters prepared to hit theaters, it may be the perfect time for Marvel (or a committed fan) to dispatch a social media campaign and make one final push for Avengers: Endgame at the box office.
As for the question if endgame could really beat Avatar historic records?
May 28th, marked the 32nd day of release for fourth Avengers movie and the tally at the time stood at 803.3 million DOM and 1883.5 million international, of which apparently 608 million came from China, according to Box Office Mojo.
That $2,686,851,641 leaves us just $101,113,466 from the untouched #1 worldwide box office spot which Avatar has held for as far back as ten years.
So far Endgame has been keeping up essentially a similar way Infinity War did during its run. Globally, from the Tuesday after Memorial Day onwards, Infinity War made somewhat in excess of 52 million until it was out of the box office entirely. Domestically, it made a comparative sum, about 49 million. Meaning, if it follows Infinity War (and it has been holding just somewhat to a lower extent), then it’ll without a doubt creep over the finish line.

Getting a little lift when Spiderman: Far From Home comes out in July is possible for Endgame. Another few million or so will be added to the count consistently, much like how Captain Marvel got a bit of a bounce when Endgame was released. It may be the only reward which at last which may put it over the top, but we’ll have to see.

Foreign numbers are still coming in, as well. In spite of the fact that the massive flood has slowed to a mere trickle.
And here's the thing; all the above predictions came true for Endgame and the movie’s recent update passed 1.9 billion international with something like 615–630 million from China. Endgame took around 10 days to meet the aforementioned forecasts.
As per reports that were written on June 7th, 2019 Endgame being released onto the theaters for 41 days stood at $2,720,504,783 according to Box Office Mojo. Only $67,560,304 from the record, and finally breaking 1.9 billion global at $1,901,800,000. However, without the assistance of China, the overseas market has totally evaporated. It would be an absolute surprise to see more than 20 million (additional) from that direction.
Avengers: Endgame could still benefit a lot from discount theaters.
Even in the States, it has fallen hard, previously being below a million dollars a day revenue a full week before Infinity War at $818,704,783. But it hasn’t gone into Dollar cinema and rebate theatres yet, so there’s, in any event, another full 20 million left in the local tank.
After its record-breaking release, this movie now has an excellent shot of surpassing the amount of Avatar’s original run (before re-release) of $2,749,064,328. So that may finish up being the incidental award: regardless of whether it takes the top spot for box office worldwide revenue, it already is a number one for the original release.
