James Cameron's highly-anticipated sequel has officially crossed the $1 billion mark in global ticket sales, two weeks after its worldwide release.
The latest installment of the Avatar franchise has earned more than $317 million in North America and over $700 million globally, making it the second-highest grossing movie of the year. It is also the fastest movie to surpass the $1 billion mark since 2021's "Spider-Man: No Way Home" and the sixth movie to reach that mark two weeks after its release.
Though the sequel has not been able to reach the same level of success as its predecessor, it is still considered to be a commercial success. With a budget of $350 million, it nearly doubled its profitability with its opening weekend. It also has the potential to make more money in the coming weeks as it continues to be released in more countries.
Overall, the success of "The Way of Water" is a testament to the continued popularity of the Avatar franchise and the skill of its creators. It is a major milestone that is worth celebrating, and one that will likely remain in the record books for years to come.
