Avatar 2 would finally already be profitable according to James Cameron with 1.5 billion dollars in revenue

Since its theatrical release, the aura of profitability hangs over Avatar: The Waterway. It must be said that after the immense success of the first film in 2009, still at the top of the world box office with almost 3 billion dollars in revenue, the 13-year wait before the release of the second opus, and the investment massive on Disney’s part in the production of the franchise, the pressure has become as great as the expectations. The threshold of 2 billion dollars at the box office had even been mentioned by certain analysts following the comments of James Cameron for GQ Magazine : “Avatar The Way of the Water is expected to become the third or fourth highest grossing movie ever to be profitable.” However, the latter recently returned to his remarks during an interview with a Chinese media.

Avatar: The Waterway is already profitable

“I was a little inaccurate with that. It’s probably closer to 10th biggest success to break even. But yes, he has to reach a very high level”, began to indicate the 68-year-old director before explaining that the pressure of a box office success pushed him and his teams to give their all: “It’s also one of our challenges and that’s what allowed us to try to do better, to be more convincing, more emotional too. It forced us to be as excellent as possible. But that doesn’t necessarily mean that we’ll be more in tune with the public, in the sense that titanic or even the first Avatar have succeeded in doing so. […] So our role is to make the best possible film. We can’t control market trends, we can only be masters of what we put in our film.”

According to these latest statements, the break-even point ofAvatar 2 would therefore be around 1.5 billion dollars at the box office, a figure that it should reach very quickly since it has already accumulated 1.4 billion dollars, in less than 3 weeks of operation, at the time of this writing.
