Lately, you may have been keeping track of Avatar: The Way of Water’s progress as it climbs its way up the ranking to become one of the most successful movies of all time.

It has now crossed another milestone on its journey to be the best there ever was.

According to Box Office Mojo Since the film’s holiday season debut, it has made tremendous leaps, as it became the top film of 2022 earlier this month.

But now it has taken another step as it is an exclusive club for the top five most-grossing movies of all time. Quickly taking the number five then four spots over the course of a month and a half since its release.

Currently sitting at $2.16 billion USD Avatar 2 only needs roughly $80 million dollars to surpass Titanic to enter the big three. And seeing how much progress it’s made already.

It will be clear by the time you’re done reading this. Okay in all reality it will take some time to pass the 1997 classic but it has already made a legacy as the first film of this decade to enter the top five for lifetime gross. 2021’s Spiderman: No Way Home was close but was stopped just prior to making it. At current here are the top five films.

  1. Avatar $2,923,706,026 2009
  2. Avengers: Endgame(2019) $2.79 Billion
  3. Titanic(1997) $2,19 Billion 
  4. Avatar: The Way of Water(2022) $2.11 Billion
  5. Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens (2015) $2.07 Billion

As you can see the film still has a long way to go before it surpasses its predecessor. But it goes to show just how much work and effort went into making this film. Still leading the IMBd in popularity and currently sitting at a 7.8/10.
