Earlier this week, James Cameron’s Avatar: The Way of Water turned the No. 5 highest-grossing film ever worldwide, and, as anticipated, has now surfed to the No. 4 place on the all-time chart. In so doing, it leaves Star Wars: The Force Awakens in its wake with practically $2.075B globally. 

Through Friday, the worldwide gross on the 20th Century Studios/Disney/Lightstorm epic Avatar sequel is $2,074.8M, overtaking Force Awakens’ $2.071B. This implies that Cameron has three of the highest 4 films ever globally alongside the unique Avatar at No. 1 and Titanic at No. 3. (*4*) will high Titanic within the coming week or so on a worldwide foundation. However, Paramount is doing a Titanic home rerelease in time for Valentine’s Day, and Disney can also be dealing with offshore earlier than Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania will get going, so there might be some jockeying forward as we noted on Thursday.

at No. 2, whereas Fox again within the day, earlier than it was underneath the Disney umbrella, launched the primary Avatar).
