Even after three months on general release, James Cameron's Avatar: The Way of Water continues to make waves at the box office.
The sci-fi sequel recently passed Titanic to become the third highest-grossing movie of all time worldwide, and while it's unlikely to knock the next film, Avengers: Endgame, out of the way to claim the #2 spot, it has swum past The Infinity Saga finale's predecessor domestically.
With a total domestic gross of $678.873 million, The Way of Water has passed Avengers: Infinity War ($678.815M) to move into seventh place on the all-time domestic list.
Not bad for a "sequel nobody wanted or cared about," eh?
"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."
