In accordance with Variety, Avatar: The Way of Water could open at the box office with $150 million to $175 million dollars only in the United States during its first weekend of release on December 16.
By comparison, the first film grossed in its opening weekend. $77 million in 2009, so current analyst projections are extremely positive news for Cameron’s sequel. In the end, the first movie of Avatar collection $2.7 billion worldwide and became the highest-grossing film of all time.
It should be noted that this was achieved in the long run, since word of mouth, technological innovation and the magnitude of the project at that time attracted many people to movie theaters. Avatar: The Way of the Water It won’t have any kind of major competition on the billboards and aims to be the movie that dominates the Christmas holidays, so it has everything to accumulate large amounts of money at the box office.
cameron has prompted that the sequel to Avatar have a screening in movie theaters in different parts of the world and there is no set date for it to reach streaming, which will undoubtedly help cement its box office collection. It was also announced thatand Avatar: The Way of Water will premiere simultaneously on China, a market where it has been difficult to exhibit Hollywood cinema.

You need these projections
Box office projections predict that The Way of the Water will have a better collection than Top Gun: Maverick, which opened with 126 million dollars in the United States in its first weekend. However, it is a long way from the opening of No Way Home, who reached the 260 million dollars only in the United States. Of course, the James Cameron film hopes to have the same life that the film of Tom Cruise in theaters, so she still has hope, but let’s take into account that the projections place her lower than Wakanda Forever, a tape that is struggling and barely made it over the threshold of 500 million dollars worldwide.
While things already look promising for the future of avatar 2 it still needs to achieve a mammoth box office performance to be profitable in any way. Recently James Cameron admitted that Avatar: The Way of Water it needs to be one of the top three highest-grossing movies of all time to break even and not be considered a commercial flop.
Currently, the first place as the highest grossing film in history is occupied by the first film of Avatar released in 2009 with $2.9 billion. While in second place is positioned Avengers: Endgame with $2.7 million. In third place titanic of Cameron remains con$2.1 billion.
However, it will be difficult for the second part of Avatar can set release records, especially since since the pandemic, the public has preferred to enjoy their films at home. In addition, the current world lives in an economic crisis, which makes it difficult for movie theaters to reactivate in their entirety.
