The premiere of ‘Avatar: The Sense of Water’ ended with more than 400 million dollars in its first weekend, some very good data but less than expected. However, the James Cameron film is holding up like a fable and It has already exceeded 1,000 million dollars in collection.
the sky is the limit
Until now only 51 films had surpassed the barrier of 1,000 million dollars throughout the history of cinema and ‘Avatar: The Sense of Water’ it only took 14 days to get it. It is already taken for granted that it will manage to snatch ‘Top Gun: Maverick’ -the figure to beat is 1,488 million- the highest grossing film title of the year and then we will have to see what exactly its ceiling is.
Let’s remember that Cameron was a bit redundant at the time when he stated that the film should exceed 2,000 million dollars in revenue to be profitable. There he is going to have it more complicated, since only five films have achieved it so far. A separate issue is that this is really the amount that determines whether or not it is a profitable investment for Disney. In fact, experts on these issues suggest that the magic number is 1,500 million.
For now, ‘Avatar: The Sense of Water’ accumulates worldwide revenues of more than 1,030 million dollars, of which 317.4 belong to the North American market and 712.7 to the rest of the world. It should also be noted that it is not yet showing real signs of exhaustion and that the competition on the horizon is not exactly strong. Come on, we can sit down and wait calmly for ‘Avatar 3’ and everything indicates that the franchise will not stay there, although Cameron is already prepared for that possibility.
In case you have been curious, ‘Avatar: The Sense of Water’ It is already the 46th highest box office film in history and it is most probable that this week it will already sneak into the Top 25, which right now closes ‘Aquaman’ with 1,148 million.
