Avatar : Smashing Records
It appears James Cameron’s high budget gamble is starting to pay off. Over the New Year weekend Avatar smashed passed the previous New Year record held by “Meet the Fockers” and grossed $68.3 million USD in the States alone.
This weekend’s result now brings the global earnings for this movie to $1.02 Billion USD, making it easily well on its way to being the second highest grossing movie of all time. With public opinion on social networks and the insanity of trying to find seats to watch Avatar 3D, its hard to see just when the popularity will end.
With this news surely now James Cameron must be close to being called the Blockbuster King of all time with Titanic being #1. However when you look at the list George Lucas, Steven Spielburg and New Zealands favorite Export Peter Jackson hold some very solid ground.
So who do you think should be crowned Block Buster King (or Queen)..
