Amid all the comparisons with the first instalment, the film has done a good enough job and is already one of the highest-grossing films in the post-pandemic era.

Out of it, overseas markets have contributed $601.7 million, which is simply superb. In the next couple of days, $900 million will be crossed and even the $1 billion mark is not so far.
Avatar 2 is now chasing the lifetime of Minions: The Rise of Gru ($939.43 million) and Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness ($955.77 million). After crossing these films, the James Cameron directorial will be aiming to be the third $1 billion grosser after Top Gun: Maverick and Jurassic World: Dominion of 2022.
