The box office king strikes again.
Avatar: The Way of Water reached a new milestone and continues its box-office domination months after its release.
The Christmas film has earned nearly $2.100 billion worldwide since premiering in theatres knocking out Avengers: Infinity War (which raked in $2.052 billion) to become the fifth-highest-grossing movie of all time.
It also means that its director, James Cameron, has now made three of the five top-grossing films ever.
Cameron’s first Avatar movie, released in 2009, still holds the No. 1 spot with $2.923 billion. Titanic (1997), the other Cameron movie in the top 5, holds the third spot with $2.195 billion, behind Avengers: Endgame‘s $2.799 billion
“Gratitude for the acknowledgment, and absolute exhilaration that I get to wake up every morning and go do what I love,” Saldaña said of the benchmark in a post on Instagram. “Never in a million years did I ever aim to make history by being in these movies. I’ve always been lucky to have been chosen and asked to join these amazing, groundbreaking projects.”James Cameron
