Avatar: The Way Of Water Has Officially Surpassed $1 Billion

It is now official that Avatar: The Way of Water has grossed over $1 billion at the global box office in the span of 12 days.

Avatar: The Way of Water has officially surpassed $1 billion worldwide at the global box office, with $317 million from the United States and another $714 million from overseas. As of Tuesday, the global box office total for the Avatar sequel was $1.03 billion. James Cameron’s epic surpassed the ten-figure mark in 12 days, making it the sixth fastest picture to do so. Back in 2009, it took the original Avatar 19 days to earn a billion dollars.

The post-pandemic era has seen only four other films enter the exclusive club, with Way of Water being the latest. Three other films had previously broken the $1 billion mark: Spider-man: No Way Home ($1.908 billion), Top Gun: Maverick ($1.489 billion), and Jurassic World: Dominion ($1.001 billion).

Cameron says that Avatar: The Way of Water requires a minimum revenue of $2 billion to break even, whereas analysts predict a figure closer to $1.5 billion. Nevertheless, Way of Water is likely to continue performing well at the box office as the holiday season progresses, particularly in western markets where the post-Christmas period is generally a profitable time for movie theatres.  In January, the film confronts virtually minimal competition, which should aid its box office performance. At its current rate of success, it’s possible that Avatar: The Way of Water will earn over $2 billion at the worldwide box office.
