Avatar Surpasses Titanic at Worldwide Box Office
This is a big feat and it’s taken a film 12 years do it. It’s no surprise, really, that James Cameron would be at the helm of the movie that finally surpasses Titanic–his last film.
This number is only going to go up as Titanic got to this number through a re-release after it won Best Picture. I remember seeing it when it first came out in December 1997 or maybe January 1998 and then seeing it again for my birthday in June. I don’t really see a re-release of Avatar in its future. Although, it could be a possibility since there still isn’t a home release technology that can preserve the film’s 3D self.
I’m finally seeing Avatar this weekend because my local theater is finally getting it, albeit not in 3D. I’m trying to go in with an open mind. But I’m still a little pissed off about it beating The Hurt Locker at the Golden Globes. I’m glad my theater is finally getting it, because it’ll mean I’ll have seen the Big 5 movies this year, and if my predictions are right, all ten of the movies that’ll be announced a week from today.
February 2nd, can you hurry up and get here?
