James Cameron offered his congratulations to “Avengers: Endgame” for passing “Avatar” for the all time box office record.
Last weekend, “Avengers: Endgame” became the highest grossing movie of all time at the global box office. After the original debut in 2009 and a few re-releases in 2010, “Avatar” held the top spot for almost a decade.
Here’s what James Cameron posted on the “Avatar” franchise social media pages:
“Oel Ngati Kamele, I see you Marvel – Congratulations to Avengers: Endgame on being the new box office king.”
This message was posted on a photo of the two franchises merging into one. Iron Man is shown with a group of woodsprites of Pandora.
“Oel ngatie kamele” is a well-known phrase of the Na’vi people from the film “Avatar”. It means “I See You” and Cameron used it to recognize the success of his fellow filmmakers.
“Avengers: Endgame” may be the highest grossing movie of all time, but James Cameron still holds the silver and bronze medals. “Avatar” and “Titanic” are second and third on the list. Half of the top ten highest grossing movies are from the Marvel Universe. These films are “Avengers: Infinity War”, “Marvel’s The Avengers”, “Avengers: Age of Ultron”, and “Black Panther”.
The only three films that weren’t created by Marvel or James Cameron are “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”, “Jurassic World”, and “Furious 7”.
Cameron is hoping to snag the highest spot once again when the “Avatar” sequel premieres. Or will “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker” take the lead? We will just have to wait and see!
