Avatar It was, between 2009 and 2019, the highest grossing film in history, until the premiere of Avengers: Endgame. But following a post-pandemic revival in China, he regained his top spot. The release of this remastered version, globally, will only strengthen its position at the top of the ranking.

Some people on social networks have assured that they bought tickets to see Avatar 2to the surprise that the performance was for the revival of the original film:
Even so, we highly doubt that the impressive numbers of the Avatar re-release were the fault of clueless people who were sure that they would see the sequel, and not the first installment of the saga. The original plan is for the film to be in theaters for two weeks, but seeing the results of the first weekend, it is very likely that they will stretch it.
