Before the release of Avatar: The Way of Water, director James Cameron stated that they’d know if the film was a hit only by the third weekend. “You’re not going to know by the first weekend,” he told The Hollywood Reporter. “Titanic didn’t work that way. Avatar didn’t work that way.” And he was right; both those movies were written off prior to release, and their relatively muted openings didn’t quite instill confidence. But they went on to become all-time blockbusters, cementing Cameron as the undisputed king of the box office. And now that The Way of Water has been in theaters for three weekends, the verdict is pretty much in. Folks have given it an enthusiastic stamp of approval, despite what you might hear about the franchise’s lack of meme-ability and non-existent cultural relevance.
With $444 million at the domestic box office and $956 million from overseas markets, The Way of Water’s global haul now sits at a staggering $1.401 billion. The film actually showed a 6% improvement over the previous weekend, with $66.8 million as compared to the $63.3 million that it had made in its sophomore weekend.
