Well, he did it. James Cameron’s Avatar is now officially the biggest money-maker in movie history, with $601.2 million in ticket sales, smashing the record held by… Titanic. I have to say, I was in the doubters camp when we first started getting looks at the thing, but by God he did it. Whatever you think about the originality of the movie, you can’t deny that it’s an absolutely flabbergasting achievement in the purely technical world of filmmaking. And with Cameron currently cogitating a sequel, it’s already become one of the most successful sci-fi franchises ever. The Hollywood Reporter has more.
