James Cameron has accomplished it yet again. With its re-release, the film’s director, James Cameron, broke his own record of the highest-grossing film ever made. Avatar was re-released in theatres ahead of the release of The Way Of Water to enhance audience hype and serve as a recap.
According to Twentieth Century Fox, Avatar has grossed roughly $2.9 billion worldwide. The staggering figure includes $779 million in domestic revenue and $2.13 billion in international revenue. Despite being the highest-grossing film of all time, Avatar‘s domestic total is only fourth behind Spider-Man: No Way Home, Avengers: Endgame, and Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
Avatar has earned more than any movie ever released
The exotic scenes and continuous plot of Jake Sully and Neytiri have once again wowed the audience. More information regarding the film’s box office success will be released before the conclusion of the weekend.
When it was first released in 2009, it quickly became the highest-earning picture of all time, grossing $2 billion at the global box office. The film was a critical and economic triumph, and its 3D technology and exotic sights were praised.
Avatar and Endgame have been contending for first place. Avengers: Endgame‘s reign as the highest-grossing film in history had come to an end when James Cameron released the film in China 18 months after Endgame($2.797B) released. James Cameron‘s recent re-release of the 2009 original film has claimed the top spot by beating its own previous record. Fans claim that James Cameron should wait until Secret Wars releases and takes back the spot for the highest-grossing film of all time.
Can Avatar 2 outshine Avatar?
James Cameron has been working on the sequels to the original film for 13 years, so it was unclear whether viewers would still be eager to return to the planet of Pandora. Although many issues remain, the recent re-release of the film demonstrates that consumers are still very much interested in the series and Cameron’s epic plot.
Avatar: The Way of Water, which cost a staggering $250 million to develop and includes pioneering visual effects and underwater cinematography technology, is expected to be one of the year’s most successful films. Neytiri is played again by Zoe Saldana, while Jake Sully is played by Sam Worthington and Colonel Miles Quaritch is played by Stephen Lang. Giovanni Ribisi, Joel David Moore, Dileep Rao, CCH Pounder, Sigourney Weaver, and Kate Winslet all appear in the film.
Avatar: The Way of Water will be released in theatres on December 16, this year, with the third sequel following in December 2024 and the fourth and fifth following two years later.
