Director, James Cameron, said that in order to break even, the film would have to be the third or fourth highest-grossing film in history.

 

It is the sixth film in history to reach the prestigious milestone, and the first since pandemic times.

 

As the film industry recovers, movies such as “The Way of Water” have demonstrated that audiences are keen to return for big big box office spectacles.

 

The film faces no direct competition in theaters until mid-February, so it should continue to generate box office receipts steadily.

 

The previous “Avatar” which premiered in movie theaters 13 years ago, and is still the highest-grossing film of all time, taking home $2.9 billion.
