Avatar 2 Passes Titanic Yet Again to Become 3rd Highest Grossing Movie as James Cameron Becomes His Own Worst Enemy

Avatar 2 Passes Titanic Yet Again to Become 3rd Highest Grossing Movie as James Cameron Becomes His Own Worst Enemy

James Cameron, director of both Titanic and Avatar: The Way of Water, is suddenly his worst enemy. Avatar: The Way of Water surpasses Titanic to become the third highest-grossing film. Only Avengers: Endgame and the original Avatar film stay ahead of it on the all-time box office charts.

Like its predecessor, Avatar: The Way of Water has an appeal that transcends generations, and this, combined with the incentive to watch the film in premium and 3D versions, has contributed to its popularity.

Due to the film’s immense popularity, the movie already ranks as the highest-grossing film in over 20 countries, including France, Germany, and New Zealand. The film has grossed a staggering $242 million in China, and the statistics continue to rise.

The film has been well-received by fans worldwide, and it’s easy to see why. The long-awaited sequel debuted in theaters in December and has remained in the top five of weekly box office charts for ten consecutive weeks.

It stars Zoe Saldana and Sam Worthington in an enthralling tale of a family in an alien universe. Most importantly, the movie also stars the magnificent Kate Winslet, famously known for her role in Titanic. The film’s success is credited to James Cameron’s inventiveness and vision.


Despite Avatar: The Way of Water’s success, it still has a long way to go before it can claim the title of highest-grossing picture of all time. It will be difficult to earn more than the $2.92 billion earned by the original Avatar film from 2009. In addition, Avengers: Endgame is still ahead of it, having grossed $2.799 billion worldwide, and it remains the film to surpass.

James Cameron, the sole filmmaker with three movies to gross $2 billion or more, has set himself an almost impossible task. He has created a movie so great that it has become his own worst enemy. As Avatar: The Way of Water continues to soar at the box office, he knows that he must come up with something even better if he hopes to outdo himself again.
