The sequel to “Avatar” directed by James Cameron earned more than $ 2 billion at the global box office, excluding inflation. Thus, “The Way of Water” became the sixth tape in history to overcome this mark.
Cameron, in turn, became the only director in the world whose three films have grossed over $2 billion. “The Way of Water” joined the first “Avatar” and “Titanic”.
Disney spoke about the tape’s success on Sunday, noting that at that time the film earned $ 2.024 billion worldwide: the domestic market accounted for $ 598 million, and the overseas market – $ 1.426 billion ($ 230 million came from China).
Cameron stated that Avatar: The Way of Water needs to raise $2 billion to become a profitable project. Now the director is preparing to devote the next six or seven years to creating new parts of the franchise.
Avatar: The Way of the Water was released worldwide on December 16, 2022 and grossed half a billion dollars in a matter of days. In Russian cinemas, which can expect penalties, the screenings of the sequel started on December 22.
