Avengers: Endgame smashed long-held box office records after nabbing another $145.8 million domestically and $282.2 million overseas in its second weekend since its official release on April 26.


The Marvel film's impressive box office haul surpassed that of James Cameron's Titanic, which grossed $2.187 billion, without adjusting for inflation, in 1997.

So far, Endgame is clocking in at $2.27 billion.

Cameron admitted defeat and congratulated the Avengers for sinking "his" Titanic on Twitter.

In Thursday's tweet, Cameron enthused that Endgame's success shuts down cynics predicting the death of the multiplex.

"To Kevin and everyone at Marvel. An iceberg sank the real Titanic. It took the Avengers to sink my Titanic. Everyone here at Lightstorm Entertainment salutes your amazing achievement. You've shown that the movie industry is not only alive and well, it's bigger than ever!"


Fans were pleasantly surprised at the good sportsmanship on display.






However, Cameron still reigns supreme, with Avatar (2009) being the highest-grossing film of all time with $2.8 billion at the global box office.

But if Endgame maintains their momentum, it could eclipse Cameron's sci-fi masterpiece.





Still, fans view Cameron as an unsinkable visionary.




They're all in it for the love of cinema.

Hey, we can all dream, can't we?

What is in the water in the United States that compels people to walk around in their homes with their shoes on? Try doing that in South Korea––people would be so mortified. I have a sibling whose apartment is carpeted from wall to wall and who walks around inside with his shoes on all the time, tracking in any manner of dirt and dust from outside. Egad! I get chills just thinking about it. And as an American, it's something I've noticed people from other countries love to comment on.

The brain a fascinating part of the body. No, its the most fascinating.

Scientists have said for years that we'll never know all about the brain and its functions.

So if it is so fascinating and so capable and awesome... why does it stall? Why does it overload?

Why aren't we all gifted with photographic memory? The brain definitely has a full storage issue. And we all suffer.

Redditor u/MABAMA45 wanted everyone to fess up to and just embrace all the things the brain can't handle by asking:

What can your brain just not comprehend?

Going to college is an exciting experience. You meet new people, learn about the world and the inner workings of society, and make lasting friendships. As fun (and expensive *cough, cough*) as higher education can be there is a reason that only one-third of the US population 25 and older have been able to complete a four-year degree program. It is hard and burnout is real.

Going through university was filled with both happiness and sometimes tears for me. I loved school and found my classes interesting, dove into extracurriculars, and had that perfectionist drive to get all A's... totally not sustainable. It hit me I was totally burnt out about two years in while enrolled in an algebra class.
