'Avatar' Sinks 'Titanic' Box Office Record
The film has made more than $1.8 billion worldwide, besting Titanic‘s record from 1997, CBS reports.
However, Avatar is still far from the inflation-adjusted record set by Gone with the Wind in 1939 – in today’s money, it took in the equivalent of about $6 billion.
“[James] has so much respect for the audience and the individual theater-goer, he wanted to give them the story he dreamed of seeing when he was 14,” Avatar star Sigourney Weaver told CBS.
