“Avatar: The Way of Water” Reaches Unprecedented Success with $2 Billion at the Global Box Office

The James Cameron-directed sequel to the 2009 blockbuster Avatar, Avatar: The Way of Water, has continued its reign at the box office for a sixth consecutive weekend. According to Deadline, the film has now surpassed the $2 billion mark worldwide, making it the first movie to reach this milestone since Avengers: Endgame in 2019.

Yahoo Entertainment reports that Avatar: The Way of Water has earned $1.7 billion internationally, with the U.S. and Canada contributing an additional $330 million. This makes it the highest-grossing movie of all time, surpassing Cameron’s own Titanic, which earned $2.19 billion in its 1997 release.

The Hollywood Reporter notes that the success of Avatar: The Way of Water has come despite the fact that it was released during a pandemic, when many theaters around the world remain closed. The film has also been able to maintain its box office dominance, despite the release of other films such as Puss in Boots: The Last Wish, which has performed surprisingly well.

As Variety reports, Avatar: The Way of Water is now the highest-grossing film of all time, and its success is a testament to the enduring power of the Avatar franchise. It is clear that Avatar 2 will continue to dominate the box office for the foreseeable future.
