Avatar 2 worldwide collection: In just six weeks after its debut, James Camron’s blockbuster follow-up to “Avatar: The Way of Water” has reached $2 billion in worldwide ticket sales.
Avatar 2: According to “Variety,” it is the sixth movie in history to reach the coveted milestone and the first in epidemic times. Other members of the elite group include “Avatar,” “Avengers: Endgame,” “Titanic,” “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” and “Avengers: Infinity War. Cameron directed three of the top six highest-grossing films of all time. He is the only director whose three films have grossed more than $2 billion. Notably, Neytiri from the “Avatar” franchise, played by Zoe Saldana, has appeared in four out of the six movies that have made over $2 billion.
In both “Avengers: Endgame” and “Avengers: Infinity War,” she reprises her “Guardians of the Galaxy” character Gamora’s appearance.
Notably, “The Way of Water” has now successfully achieved the high standard that Cameron set for himself before the movie’s debut. He claimed in an interview with GQ that “Avatar 2” represents “the worst business case in movie history” since it must rank among the top three or four-grossing films of all time in order to make a profit.
However, to accomplish that accomplishment in the coming days, it will need to surpass the fourth- and fifth-highest-grossing films, “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” ($2.07 billion) and “Avengers: Infinity War” ($2.04 billion).
The first “Avatar,” which opened in theatres 13 years ago, still holds the record for the highest-grossing film ever at $2.9 billion.
With $2.79 billion, “Avengers: Endgame” comes in second place, closely followed by “Titanic,” which earned $2.19 billion to rank as the third-highest-grossing film of all time.
The Way of Water has earned $598 million domestically and $1.4 billion internationally to date. China ($229 million), France ($129 million), Germany ($117 million), Korea ($96 million), and the United Kingdom ($81 million) are the leading international markets. Because not every market is re-connecting with the Navi, it is particularly astonishing that “Avatar 2” was able to surpass $2 billion, a threshold that has been unattainable in COVID times.
The sequel bombed in Japan with $28 million, a huge drop from the previous movie’s $176 million take, and it isn’t showing in Russia, where the first made $116 million.
The long-awaited follow-up to 2009’s “Avatar” debuted in December and has had tremendous success in the weeks afterward.
