“Avatar: The Way of Water,” James Cameron’s sequel of “Avatar,” an epic adventure-genre 2009 sci-fi which is still the highest grossing film across the globe, has been set to open between a range of $150 million and $175 million in December. Nevertheless, early industry data had unfurled that the film’s opening weekend revenues could feather up ever higher. In the matter of the fact, the original “Avatar” sequel has been on a developmental phase for years, as Cameroon altered several deadlines alongside release dates aimed at pushing cinematic and graphical gadgets to their limits. The first “Avatar” film had been opened at a colossal $77 million back in the 2009s despite a major snow storm in the US over that weekend which eventually bottlenecked grossing. At this standpoint, grossing of “Avatar” stands at a $2.7 billion across the globe.
Nonetheless, the “Avatar” sequel would unlikely to storm past that figure contemplating a sky-scrapping inflation-surge across the United States which has long been scalping the common US households’ savings.

However. amid growing setbacks what North American box office is witnessing, “Avatar: The Way of Water” received a boost this weekend, as the film’s promo officials had issued a statement saying that the film would be opened simultaneously in China, as Beijing appears to be softening its pandemic-led restrictions at a break-neck pace following a nearly three-year long break.
Aside from that, speaking in an interview with a media outlet, Cameron said, “it (is) the worst business case in movie history. you have to be the third or fourth highest-grossing film in history. That’s your threshold.
That’s your break even,” pointing towards the film’s gargantuan price tag.
