Avatar: The Way of Water has been breaking records left and right. This epic sci-fi sequel is next on its way to yet another milestone and will top $1.5B global when today’s numbers are factored. In doing so, the film will become the No. 1 worldwide release of 2022, even surpassing Top Gun: Maverick’s $1.489B. Tuesday is $1.025B, after adding $28.3M in 52 international markets yesterday (a 44% drop from last Tuesday). Avatar: The Way of Water is the No. 1 offshore release of 2022 and No. 2 of the pandemic era. It stands as the No. 9 international release of all time, moving up from No. 11 having just passed The Fate of the Furious and Jurassic World after only 21 days in movie theaters. Globally, it is the No. 12 biggest release ever, now overtaking Disney’s own Frozen II. Disney has so many records, it’s wild to see a studio break their own records.
