For a long time, the highest-grossing film was considered “Titanic”, released in 1997 and won a record number of 11 Oscars.
Another creation by James Cameron, Avatar, won only 3 Oscars, but in commercial terms it surpassed the disaster film, which tells the story of the love of aristocrat Rose Dewitt Bukater and vagabond artist Jack Dawson.
The sci-fi film Avatar has held the title of the highest grossing film for 10 years. Back in the 1990s, the director began to create a story about Jake Sully, a former Marine who lost his legs, but managed to realize himself on another planet, where scientists developed the avatar technology. True, the picture was released in 2009, but managed to collect almost 2.8 billion dollars. However, in 2019, the record was broken by the movie “Avengers: Endgame”. He overtook the previous leader by $ 7 million.
Now it became known that “Avatar” will again appear on wide screens. The blockbuster will be shown in cinemas in China. This became known last year. The Chinese chose this move in the face of a pandemic to return to the audience. For “Avatar” to rise again to the first line of the rating, he needs to collect only 7.4 million dollars. If the film is returned to distribution in other countries, then the fees will be even higher. True, such information has not yet been received.
