According to Box Office Mojo, the Avatar re-release garnered a whopping $30.5 million in the three-day weekend. It reportedly made $20.5 million internationally and $10 million at the domestic box office. The Avatar movie still sits like a king on top of the list of highest grossing films of all time with over 2.8 billion dollars. It is just above Avengers: Endgame (2019) and the iconic Titanic (1997), that has earned about 2.7 and 2.1 billion dollars respectively.
We are also positive about the fact that later on, the Avatar movie may surpass the 3-billion-dollar line. This is an achievement that would take over $100 million to become a reality. There are also speculations about how the new Avatar movie may take this trophy. Avatar: The Way of Water, a sequel to the original 2009 movie, does seem like a movie this kind of potential. If done right, it should get a chance to make a new world record and garner over $3 billion.
When Is Avatar 2 Coming Out
The second Avatar movie will be in your various cinemas on 16th of December, 2022. The movie will also release in RealD 3D, IMAX, Dolby Cinema and IMAX 3D formats. In case you are not aware, James Cameron’s first Avatar movie had an impact on 3D movies. People were trooping into cinemas just to have the golden experience of watching it in 3D. Avatar even won an award for the best cinematography with a 3D digital camera.

Just seen Avatar in IMAX 3D. Still as breathtaking as it was on opening night all those years ago. The post credits preview of Avatar 2 is quite astonishing – it shows 3D in a way I couldn’t think possible; It’s not “layers” – hard to describe. It’s basically magic. #Avatar

The movie settings is in the year 2167, 13 years after the happenings of the first Avatar movie. There are now about 3 Avatar re-releases; one in 2020, 2021 and this current one. Lest we forget, there was also a special edition in 2010

Sam Worthington will return as Jake Sully while Zoe Saldaña will be reprising her role as Neytiri. Other cast of Avatar: The Way of Water are: Britain Dalton as Lo’ak, Kate Winslet as Ronal, Sigourney Weaver as Kiri, Stephen Lang as Colonel Miles Quaritch and many others.
The movie is directed by James Cameron and written by him alongside co-writers like Amanda Silver Rick Jaffa and Josh Friedman. $250 million is the reported budget for this one and 20th Century Studios are in charge of its production and distribution. From what we have seen in the trailer, they definitely spent a lot on the visual effects for the movie. The VFX of this upcoming Avatar will definitely be much better than what we saw in the first movie. This doesn’t change the fact that both have awesome visual effects.
If you haven’t watched the Avatar re-release, then you’re missing out, you should grab your popcorns and head over to the cinemas.
