James Cameron’s Avatar 2 is churning out really good numbers at the worldwide box office as it is chasing the $1 billion mark. Speaking about China alone, the collections have crossed $100 million and it’s already a huge feat indeed. But does the film have any chance to stand among the highest-grossing Hollywood films in the country? Let’s take a look!
For the unversed, the first part was a huge success in China. Upon its release, it earned a lifetime of $261.82 million and rewrote box office history. Later, Avengers: Endgame and other biggies released and overtook the magnum opus. Still, Avatar is holding its place in the list of highest Hollywood grossers there.
As we reported by Deadline, Avatar 2 aka Avatar: The Way Of Water made $100.5 million till 25th December in China. This is impressive amid the ongoing rise of Covid. The film could have been a huge grosser in a normal situation but now, it seems that the business will suffer a major dent. So, chasing the lifetime of Avatar ($261.82 million) looks like a really tough task.
Also, take a look at the highest Hollywood grossers in China (as per Box Office Mojo):
Avengers: Endgame – $629.10 million
The Fate of the Furious – $392.80 million
Furious 7 – $390.91 million
