Avatar Passes The Dark Knight

According to early reports, James Cameron's Avatar has passed Christopher Nolan's 2008 blockbuster The Dark Knight as the second highest grossing movie domestically. The Dark Knight had a total earning of $533 million in theaters and Avatar as just passed $553 million and still going. Also, Avatar's $36 million in its 6th weekend also set a record for a film's gross in it's 6th week of release. Avatar seems unstoppable, for now. Next up for major record breaking is beating James Cameron's last film Titanic. Titanic has had the record of highest grossing film of all-time for over 10 years and it seems reasonable that the director's other film should beat it. Look for Avatar to beat Titanic's $600.8 million sometime next month. Hollywood must really want to get their hands on James Cameron for future use. Cameron is king of the world (pun intended) of box office success.

I will update weekend box office later or tomorrow with international box office to see if cameron has passed Titanic as the highest grossing film globally (which it has most likely done)
