James Cameron’s visual spectacle, Avatar 2, has hit the right chords with the audience. Not a record-breaking but the start at the box office has been big enough and to say the least, the budget of this magnum opus will be recovered by Sunday itself. Let’s see how much worldwide collection has been made till now.
Box office reporting late
Unlike recent Hollywood big releases, Avatar: The Way Of Water is taking a bit more time to track its box office numbers. It’s due to the release in the markets like China. Even the screen count is well beyond 50,000 across the globe. So, it’s a time-consuming process. Thankfully, we now have the actual figure till Friday’s complete run.
Avatar 2 worldwide box office collection
It is learnt that after the completion of Friday, Avatar 2 has managed to rake in $180.1 million at the worldwide box office. In Indian rupees, it equals to 1490 crores. Out of this, the North America i.e. domestic box office stands at $53 million, while the international circuits have contributed $127.1 million, reports Deadline.
The above figure was of Friday and it doesn’t include $20.5 million of China’s Saturday run. The same will be reported in the next update.
Avatar 2 at the Indian box office so far
The James Cameron directorial recorded a huge start in India by clocking the second biggest opening for a Hollywood film. It made 41 crores (inclusive of all languages) on Friday. Early estimates suggest 46 crores coming in on Saturday, which is huge. The rough total stands at 87 crores.
On its way to recover its budget in the opening weekend
By making $180.1 million by Friday, Avatar 2 is expected to easily hit the $400 million mark by Sunday. Which means, the estimated budget of Avatar: The Way Of Water ($350 million i.e. 2895.6 crores in INR) will be recovered in the opening weekend itself. Let’s see how far it will go from there!
