'Sunday is technically Big Little Lies ' Season 2 finale, but based on what the folks behind the show have said about Big Little Lies Season 3 , it very well may be the series finale, too. Both HBO president Casey Bloys and David E. Kelley, an executive producer and writer for the series, have said that Season 2 ends with real closure. And it doesn't sound like they have any plans to continue the show. \'Season 2 was a chance for everyone involved to end in a way that feels satisfying,\' Bloys told TVLine in an interview . And Kelley told the outlet in another interview , \'We like where our closure is at the end of Season 2. That will probably be it.\' Douglas Smith, who plays Jane's new love interest Corey , also described Season 2 to Bustle as an \'encore\' as in, you know, one big last hurrah. \'The way I understand it, it's like an encore. You go see a band play and they come back for one more song,\' he said. \'But I guess nothing's impossible.\' The synopsis for Season 2's final episode, called \'I Want to Know,\' says, \'Celeste questions Mary Louise about a tragic event from Perrys childhood; Madeline worries their lie is tearing the Monterey Five apart.\' That's not super descriptive, but it's likely that the episode will wrap up Celeste's custody case (and perhaps explain what really happened to Perry's brother), reveal whether or not Bonnie will confess, and tie up loose ends with Madeline, Jane, and Renata's relationship drama. If there is, as Kelley said, closure for all of these storylines, it will further emphasize that Big Little Lies is unlikely to return for a third season. Beyond that, Bloys also told TVLine that scheduling is a big reason why a third season isn't really on the table. \'I love this group of people I would do anything with them,\' Bloys said. \'But the reality is, they are some of the busiest actresses working in Hollywood .. I just think it's not realistic.\' In fact, Bloys previously told The Hollywood Reporter that it was a \'small miracle\' that Season 2 was able to happen in the first place. \' Everybody involved is so busy that it's hard to imagine aligning everybody's schedule again,\' he said. \'Could we do it again? Who knows? It's a great group. They love working together and they're really fun to work with. But everybody is really busy. So let's see.\' That \'let's see\' is a little promising, particularly considering Bloys also told TVLine, \'Look, if they all came to me and said, We worked out all of our schedules!' then sure .\' Plus, Reese Witherspoon joked to TVLine that Kelley said after Season 1 that they were done, and then look what happened. And it's worth noting that the finale is listed on the HBO press site as the \'season finale\' not the series one. Overall, it seems like the odds are low for a third season, but you never know. If the stars align and all the actors can come back for more, it could happen. But if not, at least the Season 2 finale is meant to be a satisfying one.'

Valkyrie Will Be MCU’s First LGBTQ+ Hero In New Thor Film

'Marvel Studios The Marvel Cinematic Universe is about to get its first ever LGBTQ+ hero, the studio confirmed yesterday (July 20). After years of waiting, Marvel fans will finally start to see LGBTQ+ representation across the MCU in the coming years, starting with Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson) in the upcoming Thor movie. The storyline will unfold in Thor: Love and Thunder , with Thompson revealing her character will seek out a queen to rule alongside her in New Asgard. We last saw Valkyrie in Avengers: Endgame , when Thor made the decision to leave with the Guardians of the Galaxy after defeating Thanos and bringing the fallen Avengers back to life. Just before he left though, the King of the Norse Gods handed over leadership to Valkyrie, telling her: It’s time to be who I am rather than who I’m supposed to be. But you — you’re a leader. That’s who you are. Now, Thompson has revealed her character arc will involve the new leader seeking out a queen to rule alongside her in her new role. Marvel Studios Speaking at Marvel Studio’s San Diego Comic-Con panel, Thompson – alongside Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, and director Taika Waititi – officially announced Thor: Love and Thunder . Not wanting to stop there though, Thompson built further excitement in discussing her character, as per io9 : As new king, she needs to find her queen. That will be her first order of business. She has some ideas. Keep you posted. This will make Valkyrie the first openly LGBTQ+ superhero within the MCU, a huge step in the right direction for the studio. Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige later confirmed this news, telling io9 when asked about Valkyrie’s LGBTQ+ storyline: “The answer is yes. How that impacts the story remains to be seen with that level of representation you’ll see across our films, not in just Thor 4.” For many fans of Valkyrie, this news is a long time coming, with many pointing to the fact that Thompson has been playing the character as bisexual for a while now. In an earlier interview with Variety , Thompson confirmed that although her intention was to portray Valkyrie as interested in women and men, this usually gets overlooked in the films. The actor explained: In the canon, [Valkyrie] is bisexual. You see her with women and men, so that was my intention in playing her. Obviously, at the forefront of most of these stories is not typically their romantic life. They have big stakes, like saving the world, so that tends to sort of trump. Marvel Studios Fans have praised the move, while also pointing out other important changes rolling out in phase four – including a female Thor , a diverse Eternals cast – including the ‘first deaf hero in the MCU’ – and a black Captain America. Incredible. Keep up the good work, guys. If you have a story you want to tell send it to UNILAD via story@unilad.com'

What Age Should You Start Taking Birth Control? 13 Women Share When & Why They Started

'Although the first oral contraceptive wasn't approved by the FDA until 1960, people have been using birth control since 3,000 B.C. While back then things like fish bladders and linen sheaths were used in the hopes of staving off unwanted pregnancies, the fact remains that people with uteruses were making choices for their bodies long before it became a political conversation. Now that our options for birth control are somewhat improved, it's up to every person with a uterus to figure out a method that works for them a process that can start long before someone starts having PIV sex. According to July 2018 research by the Guttmacher Institute, there are roughly 61 million U.S. women who use contraception , between the ages of 15 and 44. Of those 61 million women, 43 million of them (70%) use it to prevent unwanted pregnancies, and the Center for Disease Control reports that the most common form of contraception , at 28%, is the Pill. The one thing I tell patients is that birth control isn't a one size fits all approach,\' naturopathic doctor Dr. Elizabeth Goldspink, ND, tells Bustle. \'One of the most liberating things about birth control is not just the access that many women have but the many different kinds and options to choose from. From the Pill and Mirena IUD, to the Patch and Depo-Provera, you should be patient and take the time to try and explore the birth control method that works well with your body and lifestyle. For instance, if synthetic hormones aren't your thing, ParaGard is the perfect alternative as it's a non-hormonal IUD that contains zero hormones and protects you from pregnancy. But taking birth control to avoid an unwanted pregnancy isn't the only reason why women take it and because of this, some women have started birth control not long after getting their first period . Here, 13 women share what age they started taking birth control and why they decided to do so. , 1. Ana, 37 \'I started at 19 and took it until about 25. I felt good, because I just took them to not get pregnant and it had no effect on my period, as it never has been too painful anyway.\' 2. Erin, 25 \'I started on birth control at 15 years old. It was the best thing to happen to me, despite dealing with pushback from my Christian school when I brought it on a retreat. I was missing school for nearly a week every month because of my horrible periods, and when I started on birth control that stopped. Taking birth control allowed me to fully pursue my education, excel in sports and live a life without a week of excruciating pain every month.\' 3. Natalie, 35 \'I think I was 15 or 16 and took it for my period irregularity. I had been anorexic and lost my period for like a year and a half so I had to take the Pill to get it again. But everyone thought it was for sex and it was not. My mom got it for me through her insurance and had to justify to them that it was for period regularity and then later [just to them, it was] to help my complexion.\' 4. Emma, 31 \'I was 15 when I first started taking the Pill. My parents always made it really clear to me that as soon as I wanted to start having vaginal intercourse, they'd get me on birth control. When I decided I wanted to do that, I told my dad before I told my boyfriend! My mom brought me to a local women's clinic, where the hippie health care provider tried to convince me to use the rhythm method instead. As soon as she said 'cervical mucus,' I was like, 'yeah no, hard pass,' and she wrote me a prescription. I felt excited and grown-up and proud to be taking care of myself as I took this big step into adulthood.\' 5. Tanya, 51 \'I started taking the pill at 15. My mom took me to her gynecologist to see if it would help my mood swings right before my period. I would be whacked out of my mind with rage. The hormones balanced me and I could have sex, as having kids wasnt anything I wanted for my future. It was a win-win.\' 6. Claudia, 44 \'I started using birth control when I was 21 because I was having severe period pain. I didn't have a boyfriend at the time and wasn't sexually active so the decision to start birth control was completely medical. I remember being scared about gaining weight and having blood clots. As I wasn't having sex I didn't see the upside to it. A few years later I met my ex-fianc and my feelings toward birth control changed. It was all of a sudden an amazing little thing. It meant carefree sex with the man I loved and peace of mind.\' 7. Sam, 26 \'I started birth control around 15 or 16. It made me very, very nauseated. I tried a lot of different kinds and went off it years ago. I don't remember the exact year when I went off I just know I haven't taken it in years. I don't think it's for me. But, if I were in a relationship where I was having sex multiple times a week, I would definitely consider trying it again.\' 8. Sarah, 36 Ive been on the Pill since I was 17. Im gay so it was never about not getting pregnant, but keeping my hormones at an even keel. As Ive gotten older, Ive had to adjust my pills simply because my hormones have changed over the years. I wish I didnt have to take them, but until my hormones want to behave or I go through menopause, Im stuck with them. Its a love/hate relationship for me. 9. Anonymous, 25 \'I started taking the birth control pill the summer before college. I was already sexually active at that point (and used condoms for protection/birth control). I don't have a particularly open relationship with my mom when it comes to this subject. That summer she told me to let her know when I was ready to have sex with my boyfriend and then I could go on the Pill and I told her I was ready then, so we booked an appointment with an OB/GYN and I went on the Pill. \'Luckily it didn't have major effects on me when it came to my mood and weight. It was a bit of an adjustment learning to take a pill at the same time every day (I still mess up sometimes!). It definitely helped regulate my period and lessen the negative effects of it (i.e. cramps, heavy bleeding, etc.), so that was nice. I have been on it since. I may switch to an IUD at some point, but for now it's working out.\' 10. Kiley, 30 \'I started birth control at a young age as I've had hormonal imbalance issues since I started my period at nine years old. The thing that not a lot of OB/GYN providers tell you, is how drastically synthetic hormones can mess with your body. Initially, after starting the Pill, my period stopped (after six months long of constant bleeding). \'However, instead of my doctor at the time suggesting that I only start the Pill and stay on for a short time, just to help my body adjust/adapt to being a woman and eventually sorting itself out, I was on it continuously from the age of nine until I eventually studied the effects and problems that come with hormones at 28 (almost 20 years later). When I was younger I could tolerate the hormones, but as I aged and my body was trying to balance natural hormonal changes against synthetic, it threw me into a spiral of issues. I became intolerant to synthetic hormones. It caused me to have high blood pressure then I started having heart palpitations, skipping heartbeats, and eventually random episodes of syncope (the scariest was when passed out in the kitchen with a sharp knife in my hand). I went through procedures like a D&C to clean out my uterus because my doctor at the time thought I had endometriosis or fibroids or both.. NOPE! \'I eventually found the doctor that follows me now. She suggested a copper IUD. I've never felt better. All issues are resolved, no more episodes of syncope, no more random bleeding nothing! Just me, in my natural hormonal state, loving life! \'Synthetic hormones aren't for everyone. And anyone who has concerns, I urge you to voice them and be your own advocate and fight for what you want or don't want! Doctors don't always know best. We know our bodies better than anyone else does. And to anyone who may have the issues that I have had with the Pill in the past, look into a copper IUD .\' 11. Autumn, 30 \'It was wonderful when I started the Pill at 21. Way less blood, way less pain, no more two to three-week periods. Less bloating, less PMS, and less wanting to kill everyone in my path.\' 12. Erica, 27 \'I went on the Pill at 13. At that time, I had already had my period for two years and my cramps were getting worse. To have to miss a couple days of school every month at such a young age wasnt just difficult academically, but embarrassing because I thought people knew why I was out once a month. Being on birth control saved me and I could be productive again. Once I got my first serious boyfriend I switched over to an IUD because it was more convenient than having to always remember to take the Pill.\' 13. Alicia, 21 \'I started using birth control at the age of 16. I had a long-term boyfriend and decided it was the right time. So I went on the Pill. The first one I got was awful, I put on weight, had changing moods, and poor libido. Then I changed to a new one that I stayed on for more than two years. \'When I got the anorexia, I had to stop and noticed I had no period when I was hospitalized. I decided I wanted to stop hormones and actually got the IUD before I got my period back, because I didn't want any risk. Now my period is more painful and abundant than when I was on the Pill, but I don't feel like a cow being stuffed with hormones. I feel more in control of my own body and the bad effects are just natural rather than hormonal so it doesn't bother me.\' Birth control may not be for everyone and may have some negative effects, but it is a convenient way to avoid unwanted pregnancies. It's also, for some women, just the thing to put an end to cramps and mood swings. It's all about finding what method is right for you and your body.'

'Sex, since time immemorial, has been wrought with rumors, misunderstandings, and myths that have been needed to be debunked. From the idea that masturbation causes hairy palms, to all the things that will ruin your sex life , when it comes to sex-related rumors, it can feel like there's no end. Myths are great when it comes to story hour, but can be harmful when it comes to sexual pleasure . That's why we need to nip things in the bud. One prime example? Herpes. So many people think that a herpes diagnosis is the end of their sex life , but that myth couldn't be further from the truth. \'Genital herpes will not ruin your sex life,\' Dr. Sheila Loanzon , a board certified OB-GYN and author of Yes, I Have Herpes , tells Bustle. \'This diagnosis has the opportunity to cause isolation and destroy the possibility of future relationships if you let it. While the virus may seem catastrophic to some, in terms of disclosure to future partners, outbreak management, and cultural stigmatization of the virus, there are numerous HSV positive men and women (who are publicly sharing their virus status on social media), who are in fulfilling and loving sexual relationships.\' As someone who is HSV positive and single, Dr. Loanzon can attest to the fact that, having genital herpes , despite what some might thing, won't ruin your sex life. She is living proof of it. \'As a single woman dating, I have actually found that after disclosure it has not made a difference to my partners what my positive status was,\' Dr. Loanzon says. \'They would like to get to know me as a person.\' So before you get yourself in a dither over all the other possible things that could squash your sex life , take note. In addition to herpes, here are eight other things that absolutely will not \'ruin\' your sex life. , 1. HPV First of all, when it comes to HPV, it's very important that we point out the fact that, according to the Center for Disease Control, HPV is the most common STI . In the U.S. alone, 79 million people are infected and it's estimated that 80% of sexually active people will contract HPV at some point in their lifetime. That's how common it is. \'When patients are newly diagnosed in the office with HPV, the immediate thought is regarding what this means sexually.. and the risk is if the HPV causes changes to your cervix,\' Dr. Loanzon says. Those changes can be the possible growth of precancerous cells. Which, also, don't have to ruin your sex life. \'Precancerous cells of the cervix are slow growing and as long as you follow appropriate follow-up intervals, as discussed with your health care provider, abnormalities can be caught early and treated,\' Dr. Loanzon says. \'To prevent the exposure to HPV, use of condoms can decrease transmission of the virus.\' But, because condoms aren't 100% foolproof , it's still important to get checked regularly if you're sexually active. 2. Having Multiple Partners Considering we're living in an era of sex positivity, the fact that how many sexual partners one has had could even remotely be categorized as a thing that ruins sex lives is mind-boggling. I mean, doesn't practice make perfect? \'The only judgment here would be the one placed on yourself on what others may think of you,\' Dr. Loanzon says. \'Multiple partners may be a high risk behavior, but if a person practices safe sex and contraception, it can be enjoyable.\' See? Practice makes perfect after all as long as everyone is safe about it. 3. STIs Granted, no one wants an STI , but if you get one, it's absolutely not the end of the world. Nor is the end of your sex life. Especially since antibiotics can get ride of some STIs. \'Luckily modern medicine has assisted with this as well,\' Dr. Loanzon says. \'Bacterial infections such as gonorrhea, chlamydia, and syphilis are treatable with antibiotics and, if caught early enough, do not cause long-term damage. Lifelong infections such as HIV, and hepatitis B and C are well managed with medication as long as appropriate follow up is completed.\' While a contracted STI that has no treatment will involve telling future partners about your diagnosis, as Dr. Loanzon has personally experienced, it does't put the kibosh on your sex life. 4. Birth Control If you're afraid that your birth control might mess with your sex drive , therefore ruining your sex life, hold up, because the jury is still out on that one. \'There is conflicting data regarding the effect of hormonal contraceptives on female sexuality ,\' Dr. Loanzon says. \'The study results are mixed with some studies finding a decreased in sex interest in women using some birth control methods but not others. Other data shows an increase in libido and frequency of sexual encounters on hormonal contraceptives.\' According to Dr. Loanzon, there's even suggestion that dosage can affect libido as well, but it's ultimately hard to say for sure. \'Given this variable data, decreased libido or mood changes may be based on the relationship and other factors confounded with the use of contraception,\' Dr. Loanzon says. In other words, don't stress yourself about this one. 5. Fibroids A fibroid is a noncancerous growth in the body that, due to size, can make sex uncomfortable or even painful. \'Based on the size of the fibroid, deep penetration may be more uncomfortable,\' Dr. Loanzon says. \'Abnormal, heavy bleeding can occur with fibroids which can cause fatigue from anemia. It is important to speak to your health care provider about what medical or surgical treatments may be beneficial to prevent complications from the fibroid.\' Once you talk to your doctor and have a plan of attack for treatment and/or managing the fibroids, you can continue to have an enjoyable sex life. 6. Menopause From hot flashes, to vaginal dryness, to moods that are off the charts, menopause tends to get a bad rap. And it really shouldn't. It's just another stage in your life a life that will continue to be sexually active, if that's what you want. \'Average age of menopause is 51 years old with some women experiencing the change in hormones sooner or later than this age,\' Dr. Loanzon says. \'Menopause is associated with vaginal dryness, decreased libido, pain with intercourse, night sweats, hot flashes, and mood changes. It is important to recognize these symptoms and discuss with your health care provider how to mitigate the symptoms and keep [them] at a steady baseline.\' To avoid painful sex once menopause hits, using personal lubricant is the easiest way to manage things, as well as estrogen-based vaginal creams that replenish the lack of estrogen in the vaginal tissue that comes with menopause. \'It may take extra effort as arousal and orgasms may seem illusive,\' Dr. Loanzon says. \'However, communication with your partner during this time can be effective and increase intimacy.\' 7. Urinary Incontinence According to the U.S. National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health , 3% to 17% of women experience urinary incontinence . Although it mostly affects people with vaginas 70 and older, it can still affect people who are much younger, and it can be awkward during sex. \'Sexual dysfunction is reported by up to 47% of women with urinary incontinence and 45% of these women may experience loss or leaking of urine during penetration or orgasm,\' Dr. Loanzon says. \'This distressing situation significantly correlates to interest in intercourse, [but] surgical repair or treatment management may improve these symptoms.\' And, should you not opt for treatment, it's important to keep in mind that it's just a little urine, and everyone pees. 8. Having A Baby There's enough that comes with being a new mom , so we really don't need to add ruined sex life to the list, too, yet rumor has it that this is the case. \'Sexual function can decrease during pregnancy and may be impacted in the postpartum period,\' Dr. Loanzon. \'With a new infant, the strain on couples of an enlarging family, decreased libido and pain with intercourse, anatomic and hormonal changes that have occurred, decreased sex is multifactorial. Generally, within three months postpartum, 80-90% of women have resumed sex .\' Myth officially debunked. While there are things that can possibly ruin one's sex life, trauma for example, these things do not. It's important to get your facts straight before you assume the worst; in many cases there's a remedy and your sex life will keep on truckin'.'

'ITV's Beecham House takes place in pre-British rule India, and follows the story of the Beecham family as they set out on a new journey, which begins as they move into their new home close to the Indian capital. The series was created by Gurinder Chadha, and stars the likes of Downton Abbey's Lesley Nicol and Vanity Fair's Tom Bateman. Viewers currently enjoying the first series might now be wondering if the show will be back for a second outing. So, will Beecham House return for season 2? According to The Sun , there has been no official announcement in regards to a Beecham House series 2. However, the drama is still in the midst of its first ever season, so hopefully we'll get some news at a later date. I have reached out to ITV for comment, and will update with any new information once it becomes available. According to the Express , the period drama centres around the character of John Beecham an ex-soldier who starts a whole new life with his family after purchasing a mansion in Delhi, India. After witnessing the negative effects of exploration whilst working for the East India Company, John decides to become an honourable merchant in the area's trading community. However, both trouble and speculation arise when John arrives at Beecham House with two nursemaids and an \'olive-skinned\' child named August. A short ITV synopsis of the series reads, \'Set on the cusp of the 19th Century in Delhi before the British ruled in that region, the drama depicts the fortunes of the residents of Beecham House, an imposing mansion surrounded by acres of exotic woods and pristine lawns.\' ITV on YouTube According to the Radio Times , the cast of Beecham House includes Vanity Fair star Tom Bateman as the show's leading man, Safe's Marc Warren, Downton Abbey actor Lesley Nicol, Victoria's Leo Suter, and The Golden Compass actor Dakota Blue Richards. As mentioned previously, the series was written and directed by Gurinder Chadha, who decided to set the series in the year 1795 100 years before British rule. As reported by the Express , Chadha explained that she wanted to explore the origins of British rule in India, and shed more light on how it came to be. Speaking at a press event, she said, \'People generally dont know about how the beginning of that relationship started. That was an interesting period for me and what really fascinated me was the mechanics of how India became part of the Empire.\' Chadha created a a string of fictional characters , such as John Beecham, in order to explore the relationship between India and England during this time. However, as previously reported by Bustle, Beecham House does also feature real-life historical figures , including the likes of Emperor Shah Alam and Begum Samru. Well, I certainly hope ITV give a second series of Beecham House the go-ahead, because this brilliant new drama has been a welcome edition to the Sunday night TV lineup. Beecham House currently airs on Sundays at 9 p.m. on ITV1.'

Natalie Portman Will Play Female Thor In Upcoming Marvel Movie

'Marvel Studios/PA The Marvel team sure are busy with their announcements at this year’s Comic-Con in San Diego. With the news that Avengers: Endgame finally overtook Avatar as the highest-grossing film of all time coming out, and the small matter of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s next 10 films being announced for Phase Four, you’d be forgiven for missing a few other key points to come out during the convention. However, one big chunk of news was that Taika Waititi would be returning to direct another Thor film. After the success of Thor: Ragnarok , it’s easy to see why Marvel opted for the New Zealand director once again. PA Waititi took to the stage with cast members Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson in San Diego to reveal the film’s title – Thor: Love and Thunder . However, towards the end of the panel, it was revealed not only would Natalie Portman be returning to the fray, but she will be taking on the role of Thor herself. Portman will apparently still be playing Jane Foster, as she has done in previous Thor films, but this time around she’ll be able to harness the power of Thor’s hammer Mjolnir, and become a fearsome superhero herself. PA Portman’s last substantial role in the MCU was six years ago, in 2013’s Thor: The Dark World . While she featured in a flashback sequence in Avengers: Endgame , the Oscar-winning actress didn’t film any new scenes for it, as old footage was used. Coupled with the revelation in Ragnarok that Thor and Foster broke up, and that in Endgame Thor decided to leave Asgard, and New Asgard, for good, it’s currently unclear how Foster will enter the story again, or how the pair will reconcile. It’s worth noting, however, in Marvel’s Original Sin comic series, Foster was deemed worthy to wield Mjolnir when Thor couldn’t, and dubbed herself ‘Thor, the Goddess of Thunder’, according to ComicBook . “how does it feel to be back in the mcu, but this time holding the hammer?” “it feels pretty good” NATALIE PORTMAN AS FEMALE THOR LETS GO pic.twitter.com/uARaIUuhQQ — diana saw ffh ‎✵ fan account (@brieIarsonstan) July 21, 2019 Naturally, fans were pretty happy to see Portman return to the MCU: FEMALE THOR PLAYED BY NATALIE PORTMAN IS A BIG YES FROM ME pic.twitter.com/Og8zqQxwBW — ophe (@CAPTAINLARS0N) July 21, 2019 NATALIE PORTMAN HOLDING THOR’S HAMMER.

Avengers: Endgame Officially Passes Avatar To Become Highest Grossing Film Of All Time

'Disney/Marvel Studios Well, it’s finally happened after months of trying, and a cheeky re-release, Avengers: Endgame has officially become the highest-grossing movie ever. The news is sure to delight Marvel-heads around the world who have been desperate for Endgame to unseat Avatar from the top of the box-office ever since it was released earlier this year. Of course, it’s worth noting that as Disney bought Fox they now own the Avatar properties as well, so they’re technically in competition with themselves… But while the studio wins either way, so too do the Avengers have final victory over those blue, jungle-dwelling creatures. Marvel Studios Disney and Marvel recently revealed the new global intake for Avengers: Endgame was $2.7892 billion in raw grosses, which is $500,000 more than the James Cameron’s Avatar , which was released in 2009. Disney added they expect an additional half a million dollars for Avengers to roll in by tomorrow, July 22, too. It’s an impressive feat for Endgame to unseat Avatar , which has been sitting pretty at the top of the Box Office for the past ten years. However, thanks to a slight re-release around the July 4 weekend (which put the film back in 2,000 theatres), the totting up of overseas grosses, a huge over-performance in China, and 10 years of hard work by Marvel, Endgame finally did it. 20th Century Fox Marvel and Disney announced the inevitable news at, you guessed it, this year’s San Diego Comic Con, as Forbes reports. It was a safe bet Endgame would take the title – the film had a $1.223 billion opening weekend, and sailed past Titanic (yup) in less than two weeks. Marvel Studios Endgame earned around $629 million in China alone, a whopping 75 per cent jump up from its predecessor Infinity War . Had the Marvel movie only taken the ‘average’ 29 per cent of its grosses from China, it probably wouldn’t have surpassed Cameron’s epic. And while, if you take domestic inflation into account, Avatar sold more tickets in North America than Endgame , it seems the Box Office figures speak for themselves. Cameron certainly has his work cut out for Avatar 2 . If you have a story you want to tell, send it to story@unilad.com.'
