The Question Club
Avatar made it to the top of the box office records. It's all the way up at #1 in worldwide distribution, beating even Titanic, which had been there for 12 years. I was really surprised when I heard that. I saw the movie just because it was very clear how much was put into the movie, and I thought it was impressive. But I don't think it was as epic, per se, as the other movies on the following list. Nor did it have the same emotional reach, to me.
Movies to reach $1billion+:
1 Avatar ($1,878,025,999)
2 Titanic ($1,843,201,268)
3 The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King $1,119,110,941
4 Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest $1,066,179,725
5 The Dark Knight Warner Bros. $1,001,921,825
Question: What do you think about this? Avatar, the box office record, Avatar in comparison to these movies, etc... Anything related, I'm interested in hearing sum upiniunz.
I was rooting for The Dark Knight to reach #1 but besides that, I think Titanic should still be there.
