With its rerelease in China this weekend, Cameron’s 2009 sci-fi pic overtook the Russos and Marvel’s Avengers: Endgame, which had previously topped Avatar as the worldwide box office record-holder in July 2019. Through Saturday, Avatar‘s global box office is now estimated at $2.8B versus Endgame‘s $2.797B.
The Russos and their AGBO braintrust of Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely teamed with fan artist Bosslogic to create a stunning new piece of art that celebrates the Avatar triumph. They sent it with a message: “Passing the gauntlet back to you… @JamesCameron. Thanks for the beautiful art @Bosslogic.”
The Russos have something to celebrate of their own. Cherry, the Tom Holland-starrer that is the first directing project at AGBO for the Russo Brothers, opened this weekend.
