Too bad nobody saw it Avatar: The Way of Water. If so, it might already be the highest-grossing film of them all Time. It seems like, the little film that could became just that fourth highest-grossing film of all time, topping the most successful movie in one of the world’s most popular franchises, War of stars.

From this weekend Avatar: The Way of Water has grossed $2.12 billion at the worldwide box office. That puts it ahead of the $2.07 billion it grossed in 2015-2016 Star Wars: The Force Awakens* that sits on this mountain of a franchise. The only films that have now surpassed The way of the water are Titanic, Avengers: Endgame, and the first avatar. Two of them are apparently also directed by James Cameron. Which is just stunning.

More than anything, this is the latest in a long line of impressive achievements of Cameron’s latest shows, such as the popularity of avatar and war of stars are almost the reverse of flip-flops worldwide vs. domestic. domestic, The way of the water is not even close to what The Force Awakens grossed (It’s #11 all-time domestically with nearly $621 million vs. awakening of power seemingly untouchable near-$937 million.) That’s a gap of over $300 million. The difference is balanced internationally where the opposite is true, and avatar grossed about $300 million more than star wars. The same applies to the original avatarwhich has grossed a whopping $785 million domestically (nearly $200 million behind war of stars), but internationally $2.14 billion. America loves avatarbut not as much as the rest of the world.

So what other records did The way of the water break this week? Well, according to its distributor Disney, the sequel is now the highest-grossing film of all time in France, Austria, Lithuania, Bulgaria, Estonia, Hungary, Lebanon, Romania, Slovenia, Slovakia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, Georgia, Cambodia, Mongolia, New Zealand , Colombia and Puerto Rico. Not a bad list.

And guess what? It shows no signs of stopping. Last weekend it was sevenweek topped the domestic box office, a feat not matched since *checks notes* the previous one avatar Movie. However, that streak will likely end this week with the release of M. Night Shyamalans knock on the hut, followed by Marvel’s release next week Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. But also as number three or four at the box office for a few more weeks The way of the water even higher on the list. It’s $80 million away from the number three held by titanic, which seems achievable before the run is out. However, number two probably isn’t. That is Avengers: Endgame and it’s almost $700 million away. A very different domestic release.
