Avatar: The Way of Water
It is no secret that Avatar: The Way of Water has been one of the most anticipated sequels in recent memory. People loved the original Avatar and flocked to see it over and over, eventually making it the highest-grossing film of all time.
In fact, people still flock to Pandora in Disney’s Animal Kingdom to enjoy the breathtakingly beautiful land and its attractions like Flight of Passage. It is a movie that has left an impression on the world.
Needless to say, any subsequent films would have huge expectations to live up to not just in terms of earnings, but also in terms of overall fan perception. Avatar: The Way of Water seems to have captured the approval of the majority of moviegoers so far.
As of today, it has a rating of 8.9/10 on IMDB and a 77% on the Rotten Tomatoes Tomato Meter, paired with a 92% audience score. This is great news for the film.
A New Milestone
Now, there is great news for the film from a financial standpoint. Avatar: The Way of Water has crossed the $2 billion globally.
Not only that, but this means that James Cameron is the director of 3 of the 6 highest grossing films of all time. It also means that actress Zoe Saldaña has appeared in 4 films that have met the $2 billion mark.
Avatar: The Way of Water has surpassed the $2 billion mark.
It is a very good thing for all involved with the franchise that the film has become profitable because more sequels are already well under way. In fact, the fourth installment began filming before the second movie even hit theatres. Ultimately, there are five films planned for the series.
