Avengers: Endgame is now the highest-grossing film of all time, Disney announced during its panel at the San Diego Comic-Con on July 20.?
7月20日迪士尼在圣地亞哥國際動漫展上宣布《復仇者聯盟4:終局之戰》現在是史上票房最高的影片。

The 2019 superhero blockbuster, originally released globally in April, finally surpassed the global ticket sales of James Cameron’s sci-fi film Avatar, which had held the record since 2009.
這部2019年的超級英雄大片最初于4月份在全球上映,最終全球總票房超過了詹姆斯·卡梅隆的科幻片《阿凡達》,自2009年起《阿凡達》一直保持著票房紀錄。

All in all, Endgame has grossed $2.79 billion at the global box office, besting Avatar‘s total by only about $1 million.?
《復聯4》全球總票房27.9億美元,只超過《阿凡達》約100萬美元。

Avatar needed a mere 41 days to beat the previous record holder, Titanic (also directed by Cameron), while it took Endgame 85 days to get past Avatar.
《阿凡達》僅用41天就打敗了之前的紀錄保持者《泰坦尼克號》(也是卡梅隆執導的影片),而《復聯4》卻用了85天才超過《阿凡達》。

Cameron, who’s busy filming the long-awaited sequels to his original 2009 record setter, tweeted his congratulations to the Marvel movie:
卡梅隆正忙于為他2009年創下票房紀錄的影片拍攝大眾期待已久的續集,他在推特上向這部漫威電影表示祝賀:

There is no doubt that Endgame‘s manifold box office achievements are impressive: Not only is it now the biggest movie of all time, but it also had the largest opening of all time (even adjusted for inflation), the highest opening weekend market share ever (a staggering 90%), and the fastest time to $1 billion (just 5 days).
毫無疑問《復聯4》的高票房很令人驚嘆:這部電影現在不僅是史上最火,(甚至剔除通脹因素后)史上首映票房最高,首映周末市場占比最大(令人震驚的90%),也是票房達到10億美元用時最短的(僅用時5天)。

And yet, Endgame squeaking into the lead as the highest-grossing film of all time does not change the fact that Avatar‘s slightly lesser total is, holistically, the far greater accomplishment.
但是《復聯4》勉強登上史上票房最高之位也不能改變一個事實,那就是從整體上來說《阿凡達》稍微少了那么一點的總票房卻是更大的成就。
