Avatar tops Titanic domestic Box Office record

February 4th, 2010 by admin Leave a reply »

So the day has finally arrived, Avatar passed Titanic at the North American Box Office all time list. This is a feat that was thought almost impossible just a few months ago, but Avatar ignores all the rules that normally apply at the Box Office.

Avatar still tops the daily and weekly Box Office as well, so the final tally for Avatar is still to be seen. Avatar just got 9 Oscar nominations, that should give Avatar another boost. If Avatar wins some Oscars (which it will), that will be another boost. Just the fact that it passed Titanic will be a boost in itself.

Conclusion -  Avatar still have a lot of earning power left. $700+ million at the North American Box Office wouldn’t surprise me.
