The box office juggernaut that is Avatar: The Way of Water shows no signs of slowing down, and after recently swimming past Spider-Man: No Way Home to claim its spot as sixth highest-grossing movie of all time, James Cameron's sci-fi sequel has now overtaken another Marvel film on the list.
The latest box office figures are in, and The Way of Water has made $2.054 billion worldwide, just scraping past Avengers: Infinity War, which amassed $2.052B back in 2018.
The 3-hour epic is now the fifth-biggest movie ever, but can it climb even higher? Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($2.07 billion) is its next hurdle, but Avatar 2 will start to face some competition in the coming weeks with the likes of Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania and Shazam! Fury of the Gods on the horizon.
With Avatar: The Way of Water, the cinematic experience reaches new heights as Cameron transports audiences back to the magnificent world of Pandora in a spectacular and stirring action-packed adventure. Set more than a decade after the events of the first film, Avatar: The Way of Water begins to tell the story of the Sully family (Jake, Neytiri, and their kids), the trouble that follows them, the lengths they go to keep each other safe, the battles they fight to stay alive, and the tragedies they endure.
