James Cameron has taken to social media to offer his congratulations to Marvel Studios for Avengers: Endgame toppling the 1997 mega-hit Titanic to become the second biggest movie of all time at the global box office. Here’s Cameron’s tweet:

Cameron may have another tweet to send in the near future, as Endgame continued its stellar box office run this weekend, fending off competition from Pokemon: Detective Pikachu to retain top spot and push its global haul to $2.485 billion. The final chapter of Marvel’s Infinity Saga is now just $300 million shy of Avatar’s record $2.788 billion haul and with John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum the only real competition this coming week, it’s certainly still possible that we could have a new box office champ once the dust settles on Endgame’s theatrical run.
