‘Avatar: The Way of Water’ has sailed past Titanic at the global box office with $2.243.3 billion in global ticket sales to become the No. 3 movie of all time. James Cameron, who directed both films, lays claim to three of the four top-grossing movies in history.

The sci-fi sequel has generated $2.2433 billion globally, enough to overtake “Titanic” with $2.2428 billion at the worldwide box office. Now, “The Way of Water” trails only “Avatar” ($2.92 billion) and “Avengers: Endgame” ($2.7 billion) on all-time box office charts.

Like the original “Avatar,” the follow-up’s success is attributed to its generation-spanning appeal as well as the incentive to watch the film in premium and 3D formats. On Imax screens, the movie has crossed $250 million. That’s more coinage than many films manage to earn in their entire theatrical runs.
