AVATAR: THE WATERWAY TODAY WILL EXCEED ONE BILLION: IN ITALY IT IS OVER 22 MILLION
With the official Christmas ‘long’ weekend recounts, Avatar: Waterway is now close to the $1 billion mark globally, a figure it is expected to surpass by momentum in the next few hours with afternoon screenings and the evening of 28 December.
In fact, the 20th Century Studios film written and directed by James Cameron beat the bad weather and sleepiness of holiday dinners and lunches with a very rich second weekend in North America, where it grossed a total of 95.5 million, well higher than expectations, which had fallen due to the climatic situation that is afflicting the States and Canada: the total in North America for the film at the time of writing this article amounted to 293.2 million, 26% more compared to the first 11-day gross of the original 2009 Avatar, which had surpassed 400 million domestic on its 23rd day of release (January 9, 2010).
The international total is instead of 661 million dollars, which added to the domestic receipts makes a global total of 955 million: while it is expected to exceed one billion (it will be the third film to cross this milestone in 2022, after Top Gun: Maverick and Jurassic World: Domination: In just two weeks, Cameron’s film has already surpassed the global box offices of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever – 800 million – The Batman – 770 million – Thor: Love and Thunder – 760 million – and Minions: The Rise of Gru – 939 million – and in the next few hours it will surpass Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness– with which it breaks even at 955.7 million) in Italy Avatar: The water road proceeds very strong.
