Avengers: Endgame Is Still Setting Box Office Records

Rather amazingly, Avengers: Endgame just set another box office record. It's something of a record by default, but a record nonetheless. The massive Marvel Cinematic Universe hit has officially crossed the $2.8 billion mark at the global box office, making it the first movie in history to do so. Granted, it was already the highest-grossing movie ever, so it was a given that no other movie had hit that mark. But it puts a little more distance between Avengers: Endgame and any other movie that may have its sights set on the record in the future. Like Avatar, for example.But how is it possible that a movie that has been out of theaters for months managed to set a new box office record? Well, according to a new report, some unreported box office dollars were recently discovered from China, to the tune of $3 million. That puts Avengers: Endgame at $2.8008 billion globally. That includes $853.3 million domestically and $1.94 billion from international markets.James Cameron's massive 2009 sci-fi hit Avatar had held the all-time global box office record for nearly a decade with $2.74 billion. At the time, that number was truly unfathomable, as even crossing the $1 billion mark was far less common. It seemed, especially after Star Wars: The Force Awakens failed to get anywhere near that total, that Avatar may hold the record forever. Yet, Avengers: Endgame, which served as the culmination of an entire decade of MCU storytelling, managed to generate enough global interest to get the job done.RELATED: Unused Avengers 4 Concept Art Gives Captain Marvel a New HelmetHowever, Marvel's record may not be safe for long. It's not so much that any new release, not even Avatar 2, is likely to make more than $2.8 billion. Rather, Avatar could easily reclaim the crown. Disney is now in control of the franchise following the merger with Fox last year. With Avatar 2 set to arrive in 2021, the studio will surely want to give audiences the chance to become familiar with the first movie again. As such, it seems probable that an Avatar re-release will take place sometime between now and December 2021. All the movie would need to do is generate roughly $60 million at the box office and the record would belong to James Cameron once again.Be that as it may, what Avengers: Endgame managed to accomplish is nothing shy of stunning. Even by Marvel standards. It became a true global pop culture event, especially after the cliffhanger we were left with in Infinity War. Directors Joe and Anthony Russo pulled off something miraculous and that $2.8 billion total truly speaks to what they and the folks at Marvel Studios created. When Avatar inevitably takes the record back in a few months, it should take nothing away from the remarkable feat. And, ultimately, Disney wins no matter what. This news comes to us via Forbes.

Halloween II NECA Figures Come Home with Michael Myers, Laurie Strode and Dr. Loomis

NECA is at it again with their incredibly detailed action figures. This time around they're going back into horror territory with 1981's Halloween II. These are not to be confused with Rob Zombie's movie. Laurie Strode and Dr. Loomis come in a special two-pack, while a new version of Michael Myers from the sequel is sold separately. As with all of their figures, these look great and are a must-own for any hardcore horror fans out there looking for more memorabilia to put up on the shelf.Based on their appearance in the classic 1981 sequel, each figure stands approximately 8″ tall. They come complete with pistols, an interchangeable hand, and a pumpkin based on the movie poster artwork. Figures are highly detailed and fully poseable featuring the authorized likenesses of Donald Pleasence and Jamie Lee Curtis. Window box packaging recreates the look of Haddonfield Memorial Hospital.These new Halloween 2 figures come with real clothing, which separates them from some of the other NECA products. Laurie Strode is in a hospital gown with some blood on it, while Dr. Loomis is in his normal clothing and Michael Myers has his iconic coveralls. If that wasn't enough, the Myers figure has the blood tears on his mask. These figures are all ready to reenact classic scenes from the 1981 sequel, which has a cult following after not being well-received upon its initial release. A release date for the figures has not been set, but there has already been a strong reaction to them on social media.RELATED: NECA Unveils Harry Dean Stanton as Samuel Brett Figure for #AlienDayWhile John Carpenter directed the first installment, he did not return for Halloween 2, although he did write and produce it. Instead, Rick Rosenthal took over and made his directorial debut with the sequel. The movie takes place minutes after the original and it introduced an interesting plot twist that horror fans either love or they hate. In Halloween 2, it is revealed that Laurie Strode and Michael Myers are actually siblings. This big reveal would go on to shape the arc of the franchise in the next handful of installments.While Halloween 2 was panned by critics, it was a box office success upon its release in 1981. It was able to earn over $25.5 million globally, which ended up beating out Friday the 13th Part 2 ($21.7 million), Omen III: The Final Conflict ($20.4 million), and The Howling ($18 million). With that being said, it paled in comparison to Halloween's $47 million. All of this has been wiped out by the success of the latest Halloween trilogy.Blumhouse brought back John Carpenter and erased all of the sequels. While some horror fans were not into the idea at all, it was a box office smash, going on to earn over $255.4 million globally. With that kind of success, a sequel was inevitable, but Blumhouse later announced a full trilogy to put an end to the franchise, at least for now. With the new resurgence, the Halloween franchise is arguably bigger now than it ever was before with a new generation of horror fans getting turned on to the world of Laurie Strode and Michael Myers.
