James Cameron’s Avatar has now overtaken The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King and moved into second place on the list of all-time highest grossing films.
As of day 20, its overall haul stood at $1.135bn. Still some way behind Titanic (also James Cameron’s) at $1.843bn, there is still some way left to go in Avatar’s run. Could it topple the King of Film?
Unlikely. But in a recession, this is a tremendous performance the sci-fi flick. Who said good VFX didn’t get you anywhere?
