The latest James Cameron blockbuster “Avatar: The Way of Water” has amazingly gone past the $1 billion mark in global ticket sales in just a mere 14 days. According to a report from Variety, it has become the fastest movie this year to hit the box office milestone.
‘Avatar: The Way of Water’ is the fastest movie to hit $1 billion at the box office since Spider-Man: No Way Home, which needed 12 days in total to get there. Variety further confirms that only three films released in 2022 passed the billion-dollar mark. It took 31 days for “Top Gun: Maverick” to clear $1 billion at the box office; meanwhile, it took more than four months for “Jurassic World Dominion” to join the elite club.
Variety further confirms that the film has generated $317.1 million in North America and $712.7 million overseas, resulting in a global tally of $1.025 billion, which moved past “Jurassic World Dominion” as the second highest-grossing movie of the year, and the third highest of the pandemic era.
“Avatar” stars Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldaña, and Sigourney Weaver, and it follows the Sully family as they head underwater to battle the elements and keep the Na’vi safe from humans. Other cast members include Stephen Lang, Kate Winslet, Edie Falco, and Jemaine Clement.
