Avatar: The Way of Water swims beyond the $1 billion threshold globally with about $315 million from home markets and $710 million from overseas markets. The Avatar sequel's overall box office haul as of Tuesday is $1.025 billion. James Cameron's blockbuster epic has surpassed the mark in just 14 days, making it the sixth fastest movie to do so. In 2009, it took the original Avatar just 19 days to hit the billion-dollar mark.
The film is anticipated to maintain its strong box office performance throughout the holiday season, particularly in western regions where the month following Christmas is generally a profitable one for movie theatres. The movie will earn $1.30 billion worldwide by the first day of the New Year. There is not much competition for the movie in January, which should aid in the late legs. By the end of its theatrical run, Avatar: The Way of Water's box office receipts are anticipated to surpass $2 billion if present patterns hold.
With a current gross of Rs. 335 crores, the movie has also done remarkably well in India. India has continually been one of the best-performing markets for the movie, and it is currently the sixth-largest contributor, outpacing traditionally larger territories like the United Kingdom, Japan, Mexico, and Australia. With a total of over 15 million tickets sold to date, surpassing even China, India is second only to North America in terms of the number of watchers.
