Avatar 2 Box Office (Worldwide): Scores The Best Tuesday Of 2022 In North America, Milestone Of $500 Million Already Crossed!
about to be a very Pandora Christmas at the movies. “Avatar: The Way of Water,” which opened solidly last weekend to $134 million, is poised to dominate box office charts again in its second outing.
Considering the fact that there has been huge advance booking for Avatar: The Way of Water today and tomorrow as well, the numbers would come out to be really good.
At least today the film won’t come close to the Friday numbers, though as long as at least Rs. 30 crores come in, it would be quite good. Tomorrow, the film will grow again and if it manages to reach Friday’s numbers then the game would be on for this sci-fi fantasy action film.
While Drishyam 2 has kept the box office engaged for the last four weeks and Cirkus is arriving next Friday, the current week has allowed huge returns for the theatrical business of Avatar: The Way of Water, what with Rs. 41 crores being accumulated across all languages.
Note: Box office numbers are based on estimates and various sources. Numbers have not been independently verified by Koimoi.

Meanwhile, amid the box office talks of Avatar 2, James Cameron recently spoke about the pressures a filmmaker has to go through while making a movie at such a grand scale.
Talking to IANS, Cameron shared that one of the pressures on many filmmakers is how to stay objective about their own films.
“There is also the pressure of getting the film done as quickly as possible and this is not a quick film to make clear. We have had over 3000 VFX shots in this movie and too just to put that on perspective on ‘Terminator 2’, I had 42 VFX shots. So, that’s enormous pressure,” Cameron shared.
James Cameron’s sci-fi sequel on Monday added a healthy $16 million, bringing its four-day domestic tally to $150 million.
Internationally, the film collected $38.8 million on Monday, taking its international total to $346.8 million and global result to $497.1 million.
By Tuesday, it’ll be one of eight films this year to cross the $500 million mark worldwide and by the end of the year, the $350 million-budgeted tentpole is aiming to hit the $1 billion mark.
“Avatar 2” has a little more competition on movie theater marquees. Three major movies — director Damien Chazelle’s glitzy showbiz epic “Babylon,” Universal’s animated “Puss in Boots: The Last Wish” and Sony’s Whitney Houston biopic “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” — will open, but they aren’t expected to give “Avatar 2” much of a fight for the top spot.
Overall, it’s a lighter Christmas season than usual, much to the disappointment of cinema owners. The “Puss in Boots” sequel, set in the “Shrek” universe, is expected to secure the best start among newcomers, with projections at $25 million to $30 million from 4,000 North American theaters.
It’s getting a jump on the holiday weekend by opening on Wednesday when kids are off for winter break. The higher end of estimates wouldn’t be far off from the original “Puss in Boots,” which opened to $34 million in 2011.
The first “Shrek” spinoff eventually grossed $554 million globally, enough to merit a sequel. Already, the animated adventure about a swashbuckling feline has generated a soft $14 million from 25 international markets.
It’ll open in 28 additional markets, including China, Mexico, and Spain, over the weekend. With the exception of Universal and Illumination’s “Minions: The Rise of Gru” and its $939 million global tally, family films have struggled greatly in pandemic times.
“Puss in Boots 2,” which cost $90 million to make, looks to benefit from the lack of competition through the rest of the year.
The next major movie to target younger audiences is “The Super Mario Bros. Movie,” which doesn’t open until April 2023. “Babylon” and “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” will vie for third place with each movie hoping to bring in $12 million to $15 million between Friday and Monday.
