Avatar Nabs No. 2 Spot at All-Time Box Office - Featured


James Cameron only has himself to beat now.


Just three weeks into release, the director's sci-fi epic Avatar has become the second-highest grossing film worldwide of all time, giving Cameron the top two spots on the list.


On Wednesday, Avatar upped its global tally to $1.13 billion to surpass the $1.12 billion haul of The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King, according to Box Office Mojo.


Cameron's Titanic still holds the all-time record with $1.84 billion, accrued in 1997 and 1998.


On the domestic front, Avatar is projected to pass Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith this weekend as the 10th highest-grossing film in U.S. box office history. Avatar is currently in 12th place with $374 million, behind Return of the King ($377 million) and Sith ($380 million).


Do you think Avatar can topple Titanic?

GeorgiaWoolf you need to ditch the friend and go see it again. It may not be the best movie ever, but it is extremely entertaining. I can't wait to see it on blue-ray.
