'Avatar' breaks 'Titanic' worldwide record
After six rounds on the foreign circuit, "Avatar" is now the biggest-grossing film of all time, as earlier predicted.James Cameron is just amazing. Congratulations.
Distributor 20th Century Fox said the James Cameron mega-budget blockbuster's worldwide cume -- excluding Puerto Rico -- was through the weekend just $2 million shy of "Titanic's" global boxoffice record of $1.843 billion. (Boxoffice in Puerto Rico, although generated offshore, is considered by Fox as part of its domestic total.)
The distributor confirmed that "Titanic's" historic benchmark fell as of early Monday.
"Avatar" rolled up an overseas cume through Sunday of $1.292 billion, exceeding by $50.1 million "Titanic's" 13-year international boxoffice record of $1.242 billion. The foreign record actually fell Saturday, as earlier predicted.
