James Cameron finally commented on the record box office “The Avengers: Final” – a superhero blockbuster, we recall, a few days ago overtook the “Titanic” on charges and confidently approaching Avatar, also shot by Cameron. In his Twitter, James congratulated Marvel on his successes, diplomatically “forgetting” how he publicly expressed a hope a year ago that the public would get tired of superheroes.
“The Avengers: Final” as of today collected more than $ 2.3 billion in box office worldwide, overtaking Titanic, whose cash collections amounted to 2.187 billion. Now only Avatar is ahead with its 2.78 billion.
“Kevin Faigi and everyone in Marvel: an iceberg sank the Titanic. It took the Avengers to sink my Titanic. All of us at Lightstorm Entertainment congratulate you on this amazing achievement. You have shown that the film industry is not only alive and well, but also bigger than ever! ”
In April 2018, James Cameron sounded different: a year ago, in an interview with IndieWire, the director expressed the hope that the audience would soon get tired of superheroes. “I hope that soon we will get tired of the Avengers.” Not that I dislike such films. Simply, guys, because there are other stories that can be told – not just about men on steroids without families, performing deadly things for two hours and in the process of destroying cities. ”
