Following the phenomenal success of Avatar: The Way Of Water, James Cameron is now the only director to have helmed three movies that have made over $2 billion at the global box office.
Just six weeks after its debut, the long-awaited sequel to 2009’s Avatar, which currently wields the record for being the highest-grossing film in cinematic history, surpassed the enormous financial milestone by making $2.024B at the latest check against a budget of between $350-460 million.
The original Avatar (2009), which made $2.923 billion against a $237 million budget, and Titanic (1997), which made 2.195 billion against a $200 million budget, are two of the famous list’s films directed by a Canadian.
Only three other movies, all from Disney, have surpassed the $2 billion mark, in addition to Cameron’s three epics.
Avengers: Endgame (2019), which had a budget of $354–600 million, came in at number two on the all-time earnings list with $2.798 billion.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015), which had a $306 million budget, is currently ranked fourth after grossing $2.071 billion.
Avengers: Infinity War (2018), which had a budget of between $325 and $400 million, came in at number five with revenues of $2,052 billion.
Avatar 2 has surpassed $2 billion in sales, making it the sixth-highest-grossing film of all time.
Three additional installments are scheduled for release in 2024, 2026, and 2028, however Cameron previously stated that the timing of the later two depended on how well The Way Of Water did commercially.
