Avatar: The Way of Water takes the weekend box office falling short of expectations

Avatar: The Way of Water

Avatar: The Way of Water easily won the weekend box office but fell short of the rather out there initial projections. The film grossed $134 million domestically, an impressive number. Projects had the film making at least $140 million but others had it between $160 and $200 million. The original film opened with $77 million in 2009, about $106.9 million in today’s dollars.

Internationally, the film grossed $300.5 million delivering an opening weekend total of $434.5 million. The film will reportedly need to gross $2 billion to break even, the original grossed $2.923 billion. It’ll be interesting to see how the film does in the “new normal” post Covid. The film doesn’t have much competition until mid-February with just Puss in Boots: The Last Wish geared towards kids and Babylon, Oscar bait, standing much of a chance of making a dent. The biggest hurdle for the film will be the increasing Covid positivty rate as well as whether anyone was really clamoring for a sequel for a film that holds records but left little cultural impact.

In second place was Violent Night which held the spot from the previous weekend with an estimated $5.6 million. It has now grossed just under $35 million domestically. Internationally, it added about $5 million over the week to bring that to $20.1 million. Worldwide, the film has grossed $55.1 million.

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever dropped to third place with an estimated $5.4 million. Domestically, the film has earned just under $419 million. Internationally, the film added about $9.5 million over the week to lift that to $367.5 million. Worldwide, the film has grossed $786.5 million.

Strange World slipped one spot to fourth place. The movie grossed $2.2 million to bring its domestic gross to $33.8 million. Internationally, the film grossed about $200,000 over the week to bring that to $23.2 million. Worldwide, the film has grossed just under $57 million.

The Menu rounded out the top five with $1.7 million to bring its domestic total to $32.1 million. Internationally, the film grossed about $400,000 over the week to bring that total to $29.2 million. Worldwide, the film has earned $61.3 million worldwide.
