Never underestimate James Cameron: Avatar – La via dell’acqua managed to do what seemed impossible, undermining Spider-Man No Way Home from the highest grossing post-Covid world peak.
It had already been in the air for a few days, now it’s official: Avatar – The way of water has become the world’s highest grossing post-pandemicsurpassing the record which seemed untouchable of Spider-Man No Way Home. In the last hours Avatar 2 in fact, it has overtaken it, heading towards 2 billion dollars, symbolically opening up hopes for a return to normality of the cinemawithout however ever forgetting that, beyond these extraordinary numbers, there are other smaller and different films from Avatar 2 able to keep the flag flying.
Avatar 2 exceeds 40 million euros at the Italian weekend box office!
Spider-Man No Way Home surpassed by Avatar: The street of the water as the highest grossing post-Covid!
It looked like the record of Spider-Man No Way Home al boxoffice should remain undefeated: with 1,916,300,000 dollars, including the autumn re-release, the film with Tom Holland was the highest international post-Covid grosserbut who saw in the Marvel universe the “king of the world” he hadn’t come to terms with the holder of the title. E James Cameron has no intention of handing it over to the newcomers: in the last few hours, source Boxofficemojo, Avatar: The Way of Water it has in fact touched 1,928,250,000 dollars, thus officially dethroning it. And if the 2,743,580,000 of the first appear unattainable Avatar (which with the various re-editions until 2022 have become a good 2,923,000,000!!!), there is no doubt that that of Avatar 2 is an outcome that few would have bet on, perhaps considering No Way Home an exception.
That said, if you compare to last year’s takings Italian box office of the last weekend, we note that Avatar: The Waterway, although it understandably attracts attention, is not a trump card. These 6,690,264 euros from the general Italian box office in the last weekend double the 3,276,600 of a year ago… and in any case No Way Home was still in the circuit and at the top. Italian films sailed between 200 and 300,000 euros, while now they fend for between 600 and 700,000. Comforting.
