    It's hard to celebrate Disney for breaking records when they underpay their employees and give them terrible working conditions. Maybe they should take the billion dollars from avengers and rectify that.

    Yes, because it’s a property they own that made a billion dollars

    It makes sense for Disney to re-release Avatar before the sequels are released. They need to remind people about the first film.

    Yeah, Disney definitely doesn't care about franchises it didn't build, only those it did, like Star Wars... Oh, wait.

    Of course Disney would re-release Avatar. There is no concept of pride when people are looking at numbers and trying to make them bigger.

    It seems like such a strange thing to celebrate, though, because the population of the world keeps getting bigger, more countries are gaining access to theaters, and the price of a movie ticket keeps increasing. It is not a record that will stand the test of time unless something radically changes with the way people experience movies in theaters.

    Of course, adjusted for inflation, Avatar made less than half of what Gone With The Wind did, which came out in the middle of the Great Depression and with a population much smaller than it is today.

    Before that, a James Cameron movie beat a James Cameron movie and before that a Steven Spielberg movie beat a Steven Spielberg movie.

    I was surprised to learn that, for a four year period, The Godfather was the highest-grossing film. That is more impressive than a lot of this other stuff because it isn't something that people took their children to.

    What is the chance that a non-CGI movie can ever become the highest-grossing film again? It’s gotta be like 5%

    Probably not anytime soon. Pretty much every big budget picture uses CGI in some capacity these days, even non-action/franchise movies. The Wolf of Wall Street comes to mind, watching the behind-the-scenes reel there is a TON of CGI in that movie, even if it's mostly just for backgrounds/locations.

    Never.

    The next film has to be a big budget family film. That is what makes The Godfather so interesting; not only is it rated R, but it is a film children wouldn't want their parents to take them to anyway, unlike Jaws, which topped it. It would be like a Paul Thomas Anderson film doing it today.

    You have to make a film that hits all the demographics. It has to be simple enough for children, but not so much that it is considered childish. You have to account for international audiences, including the whims of Chinese censorship and the global appeal of movie stars.

    I don’t know what already announced film could top Endgame. It may be another 10 years or so

    Rise of Skywalker might be the only one that has a chance at all, and even that is a little unlikely I think

    I'd be surprised if Rise of Skywalker crossed 2 billion. No way it tops Endgame. I think we're a good bit of time away from something that tops Endgame

    Yea, I mean, it will still be a huge movie. But I feel like the toxic fandom after TLJ took the wind out of the sail for some people.

    Rise of Skywalker won’t have China like Endgame did, either. China still hasn’t caught onto the Star Wars franchise and to top Endgame you’ll need to make bank in China. Endgame had almost $600 million there alone, TLJ only had $50 million.

    Yea, RoS won't have a chance because of China. I'll be interested to see how it does against Endgame domestically since TFA ended up staying on top there.
