‘Avatar: The Way of Water’ gave no sign of renouncing its box office domination. It took in an evaluated $19.7 million in its sixth weekend out in North America, industry watcher Exhibitor Relations said Sunday.
The James Cameron sci-fi epic thus sailed past the $2 billion mark globally, the best in the pandemic era, with amassed ticket sales of $598 million domestically and $1.42 billion internationally. That makes the Disney/20th Century film only the sixth movie to reach the $2 billion mark (not adjusted for inflation). However, it still trails the all-time leader, the original ‘Avatar,’ by $1.5 billion.
Showing numerous buoyancy after five weeks out, Universal’s family-friendly ‘Puss in Boots: The Last Wish’ rose one spot from last weekend to place second, at $11.5 million for the Friday-through-Sunday period.
And in fifth, down one place from last weekend, was Sony’s feel-good ‘A Man Called Otto,’ at $9 million. Tom Hanks recreates the title curmudgeon, a character founded on the famous Swedish novel ‘A Man Called Ove.’
