The success of ‘Avatar: The Sense of Water’ at the box office is unquestionable. The film directed by James Cameron accumulate already 2,054 million dollars and has just snatched ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ for fifth place on the list of the highest-grossing films of all time. In addition, in just a few days it will also surpass ‘Star Wars: The Awakening of the Force’ -it barely needs 17 million more to achieve it-, leaving the question of what its ceiling will be.
For now, ‘Avatar 2’ accumulates 869 million less than ‘Avatar’, an amount that seems totally out of reach. Let’s remember that the first installment enjoyed several reruns, since it initially closed its run in theaters with 2,749 million -right now it has 2,923 million according to data from BoxOfficeMojo-, but it is also that the collection rate of the sequel is already lower.
‘Avatar: The Sense of Water’ entered 20 million dollars during its sixth weekend in theaters in the United States, a figure significantly lower than the 34 that the first installment achieved during the same period. In return, he had accumulated something more (598 million for the sequel compared to 551 million for the original) in the same time space, but it is most likely that the first installment will end up on top.
That also happens in many other countries -in Spain, ‘Avatar: The Sense of Water’ has it literally impossible to reach the figures of the first installment-, which does not detract from what this long-awaited sequel has achieved. . Nevertheless, first place is out of reach. In fact, it is also very unlikely that it will add the 745 million it needs to reach the 2.799 million of ‘Avengers: Endgame’.
A priori, the most reasonable objective for ‘Avatar: The Sense of Water’ is to reach third position, currently occupied by ‘Titanic’ with 2,194 million. That would mean that he needs 140 million more to reach that number. It is reasonable to think that he is going to achieve it, but there he has a new obstacle, since the romance carried out by Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet returns to theaters on Valentine’s Day and it is clear that that figure is going to rise by several tens of millions more…
