- Avatar: The Way of Water is the sequel to the 2009 blockbuster Avatar, which wowed audiences with cutting-edge 3D technology.
The global box office for James Cameron’s Avatar: The Way of Water keeps growing.
After a stellar opening weekend of $441.6M, the movie has surpassed the $500M mark globally. The movie has now amassed a total worldwide box office revenue of $609.7M.
With a total of $14.3 million, Avatar: The Way of Water has now surpassed Top Gun: Maverick’s previous record of $14.8 million for the highest second-Wednesday total of the year.
The upcoming weekend is expected to increase global figures because the holiday season is already well underway. It remains to be seen if the James Cameron film can surpass the mark set by Top Gun: Maverick, which earned a US total of $719 million.
According to reports from Deadline, despite the current rise of COVID outbreaks, China at $70.5 million, France at $37 million, Korea at $32.1 million, and India at $26.5 million significantly increased the overseas collections for the Avatar sequel through Wednesday.
The follow-up to the 2009 smash hit Avatar, which dazzled audiences with cutting-edge 3D technology, is Avatar: The Way of Water.
The actor’s Sam Worthington and Zoe Saldana reprise their roles as Jake Sully and Neytiri, 10 years later and now the parents of 5 kids.
The return of the Sky People, the Na’vi term for humans, to pursue Jake disrupts their peaceful existence. Along with the original cast members, Stephen Lang and Sigourney Weaver, Kate Winslet is a new addition to the movie.
With $2.9 billion in worldwide ticket sales, the original 2009 movie is still an all-time box office success.
The sequel is anticipated to maintain a strong presence at the global box office in the coming weeks, despite the possibility that it won’t last as long as the original movies.
James Cameron, the director, and the co-writers wanted to create a story that could be spread across four more films, so the sequel was repeatedly postponed.
Both the third Avatar movie and a portion of the fourth movie have already been shot.
