“Avatar: The Way of Water” has made history at the global box office, surpassing the $1 billion milestone in just 14 days, becoming the fastest film to achieve this feat in 2021.
The sequel to James Cameron’s 2009 blockbuster “Avatar,” the film features an all-star cast including Sam Worthington, Sigourney Weaver, Zoe Saldana, and Kate Winslet.
This impressive feat makes “Avatar: The Way of Water” one of only three films to surpass $1 billion in 2021, alongside “Top Gun: Maverick” and “Jurassic World Dominion.”
While the film’s release in December, a prime time for blockbuster films, may have contributed to its success, its technological innovation and strong cast have also played a role in its impressive box office performance.
However, director James Cameron has stated that “Avatar: The Way of Water” needs to make $2 billion to break even.
Despite this, the film’s record-breaking box office success is a promising sign for its future performance. The original “Avatar” film grossed over $2.8 billion at the box office. It became the highest-grossing film of all time, and “Avatar: The Way of Water” is well on its way to potentially achieving similar success.
