What are the highest-grossing films of all time?

After nearly a decade of asking, one film has done what was thought to be impossible. Avengers: Endgame as of July 2019, has officially become the world’s highest-grossing movie of all time.

To deny James Cameron’s sci-fi/fantasy epic Avatar is a tremendous feat, seeing as the now-second most successful film of all time, grossed US $2.789 billion in 2009.

Based on insights from Box Office Mojo, BUZZ notes that the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) has four entries in the global top 10. If parent company Disney is included, the pair sweep two extra spots on the best 10, to bring Buena Vista Studios’ count to six out of ten.
