Avatar 2 Passes 2
Posted By:

James Cameron's Avatar: The Way of Water has just become the sixth film to ever cross the $2 billion (US) mark in global ticket sales.

Three out of those six films are his (Titanic, Avatar 1 and 2) and Avatar is expected to make it to fourth place within a week.

All (Star Wars: The Force Awakens + Avengers: Infinity War) are science-fiction except for Titanic.

At this point it doesn't seem likely Avatar 2 will pass 1, which holds first position with $2.9 billion.

Though we wouldn't consider that a failure.

The first film's special effects were truly in a league of their own back in 2009.

It was a marvel to behold even on repeat viewings.

These days Marvel alone pump out several films a year with equally impressive visual effects.

Avatar: The Way of Water is in cinemas now.
