- Avatar The Way of Water,” a James Cameron film, has grossed $2 billion at the global box office.
- It marks the third Cameron film to reach this benchmark.
- It is also the sixth highest-grossing film of all time.
Avatar The Way of Water film has generated strong ticket sales in France, Germany, and Korea, despite a muted showing in China due to an increase in Covid-19 cases. Only five other films have hit this metric, the original “Avatar,” “Avengers: Endgame,” Cameron’s “Titanic,” “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” and “Avengers: Infinity War.”
This success is a good sign for the Avatar franchise, which has three more installments planned for release over the next five years. It also meets the goal of Cameron, who had previously said the film would need to be the third or fourth highest-grossing film in history to break even.
As the industry rebounds, films like “The Way of Water” have proven that moviegoers are eager to return for big blockbuster spectacles. Many are willing to pay for premium showings such as IMAX or large format screens that often come with a higher price tag.
Dergarabedian said that keeping in line with Cameron’s ‘king of the box office world’ career trajectory, it should come as no surprise that the justification for completion of the director’s vision for the world of Pandora is now undeniably assured and given the stamp of approval by enthusiastic fans around the globe.
The film’s production budget is estimated to be between $250 million and $350 million, not including marketing costs. The film will likely continue to generate box office receipts as it has no direct competition in theaters until mid-February.
