“Avatar: The Way Of Water” keeps unleashing a flood of cash on James Cameron and Disney. The sequel to the 2009 “Avatar” film has now crossed $1.5 billion in total sales worldwide, making it the top grossing movie to be released in 2022.
“Avatar: The Way Of Water” has now passed “Top Gun: Maverick”, which surprised nearly everyone with its stellar run of $1.48 billion. Cameron’s flick still has plenty of room to go with no large films expected to challenge it for a while.
Cameron will likely be happy to hear he won’t go challenged for a while, as in North America the film has only taken in $446 million so far, so its still behind “Top Gun: Maverick”’s $716 million domestic box office take. Will “Avatar: The Way Of Water” keep drowning out the competition? The next ‘mighty’ challenger stepping up is Marvel’s “Ant-Man: Quantumania” over a month away.
