Love it or hate it, James Cameron’s Avatar: The Way of Water has become the sixth movie in history to earn $2 Billion worldwide, reaching Cameron’s originally stated profitability threshold.
The Way of Water continues to splash money on theater operators in North America, generating another $45 million in its fourth weekend for a domestic total of $516.7 million.
Avatar: The Way of Water swam closer to James Cameron’s two billion dollar hopes with a very solid third weekend at the domestic box office to the tune of $63.4 million.
James Cameron’s long gestating sequel to 2009’s Avatar made a splash at the weekend box office, but it wasn’t the size of a Pandoran sea monster’s cannonball dive.
In an effort to keep their heads above “water”, Disney and 20th Century have successfully secured a release date for Avatar: The Way of Water in China.
The re-release of Cameron’s 2009 film earned $10 million at the weekend box office, establishing itself as the the most profitable re-release so far this year.
