Avatar: The Way of Water Breaks More Records at the Global Box Office | Movies

Avatar: The Way of Water continues its rise through the upper echelons of the all-time charts as it becomes the sixth film to break the $2 billion mark in worldwide box office receipts.

According to Deadline, the James Cameron-directed Avatar sequel hit a total of $2.024 billion on Sunday, meaning it’s now ahead of Spider-Man: No Way Home and Jurassic World on the list of top-grossing films. Deadline predicts it will overtake the next two films, Avengers: Infinity War and Star Wars: The Force Awakens, later this week to reach number 4.

This means that Cameron has directed three of the top four films of all time, with the first Avatar film at No. 1 with $2.9 billion and Titanic at No. 3 with $2.2 billion. Only Avengers: Endgame, at number 2 with $2.8 billion, interrupts the series.

The results of Avatar: The Way of Water have been greatly aided by its dominance beyond the US box office. Deadline reports that it has become the No. 1 film of all time in Austria, Lebanon, Slovakia, Mongolia, and Colombia, among others, and has become the biggest Hollywood film of all time in India (where it grossed $57.9 million). . The strongest non-US territory is China, where it has been the No. 1 movie for five weeks and grossed $229.7 million. However, the Lunar New Year holiday has spawned a string of commercial new releases, with The Wandering Earth II replacing it at the top of the charts.

Analysis by Screen Rant’s Stephen M Colbert suggests that the film’s final loot will be at least $2.5 billion, which would overtake the Titanic and finish in third place.
