James Cameron’s Avatar 2 or Avatar: The Way of Water is one movie that everyone has been waiting with the patience of a saint. And going by the box office collections so far, the film is expected to break some serious records this time around as well.

In India, Avatar 2 is winning big, box office number-wise, in the Southern belt of the country. Interestingly, the film had made a whopping 20-crore mark in advance bookings.

In terms of Day 1 collections, Avatar 2 has seen an overall occupancy of 30-35% all over India, according to a report by entertainment portal Koimoi. But the collection also involves 2D numbers and that makes it an average start. However, the 3D and higher versions are doing well and with 3800+ screens assigned to the film, the forementioned occupancy rate is pretty good.

It has also been reported by the website that Avatar 2 is doing remarkably well in South India, while the Northern belt isn’t performing as per trade expectations.

Sadly, the film’s director James Cameron, who made the first installment back in 2009, said that the franchise will cease to exist if the box office numbers are not upto the marl. He stated, in his interview with Total Film, “The market could be telling us we’re done in three months, or we might be semi-done, meaning: ‘OK, let’s complete the story within movie three, and not go on endlessly’ if it’s just not profitable.”

Directed by James Cameron, Avatar: The Way of Water or Avatar 2 released worldwide on December 16, 2022.
