"Avatar" is once again the highest-grossing film of all time.

Over the weekend, James Cameron's sci-fi epic was rereleased in China and garnered enough in ticket sales to overtake "Avengers: Endgame" for the record.

"Avatar" first became the top-selling global release of all time in 2010 when it usurped Cameron's "Titanic." In 2019, "Avengers: Endgame" won the title with a $2.797 billion box office haul.

As of Saturday, "Avatar's" box office gross surpassed $2.802 billion, allowing it to earn back its crown.

"These two titans of cinema have been dueling on box-office Mt. Olympus for years," said Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst at Comscore. "As 'Avatar' once again takes the crown, the importance of the big screen experience both in terms of its cultural impact and of course its massive revenue generating power is brought into sharper focus."
