While Avatar did a great performance on screen, earning a gross total of USD 2.78 billion (Rs 19,788 crore) worldwide, Avengers: Endgame broke the ten-year-long record by heading the chart with a collection of USD 2.97 billion (Rs 21,135 crore).

He also feels that the huge success of Avengers: Endgame is a good sign for his movies. He added, “I was really concerned with all the new streaming services and the different ways people can consume movies right now that the theater going experience might have been eroded to the point that a new Avatar film – even if it were better than the first one, and better received – could never achieve the same box-office levels. Now at least we know such a thing is still possible at the movie theatre.”
