MickeyBlog has been keeping you updated on all things Avatar prior to its upcoming debut. If you’ve been following along, you know that this film has an enormous budget.
Although James Cameron hasn’t revealed specific numbers, he’s stated that it has to be the third or fourth highest-grossing film in history just to break even. Thirteen years ago, the original Avatar conquered the box office as the highest release of all time.
Global Outlook of Half Billion
According to Deadline, Avatar: The Way of Water has a global outlook of $525M. The movie is Disney’s widest-ever global release with 52K screens, more than Avengers: Endgame.
The projections are estimated on the high end at $175M in the United States and Canada and $350M overseas. Some tracking places the movie on a lower level at $150M.
If Avatar: The Way of Water does end up coming in on the low end, expectations are that the movie will hold. This is based on the fact that other James Cameron films like Avatar and Titanic have done so in the past.
Sources say that Disney has dibs on premium auditoriums for the next five weekends. Can the movie maintain a number one spot past the Martin Luther King holiday?
Domestic presales for Avatar: The Way of Water currently stand at around $38M through yesterday. Although that is double of high-grossing films like Top Gun: Maverick and Jurassic World, it’s behind Black Panther: Wakanda Forever and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
Presales in China have been strong, and Cameron is hugely popular in the country. There are only a few more days left before audiences get to see how the movie actually fares.
For now, Avatar: The Way of Water projects a global outlook of a half billion dollars. MickeyBlog will continue to keep you posted on the movie’s latest news.
