We're not in Kansas anymore. We're on Pandora, ladies and gentlemen! If you don't believe us, believe the numbers. As we told you earlier today, Avatar has taken in about $1.34 billion worldwide, second only to James Cameron's previous blockbuster, Titanic ($1.8 billion).
We know where some of that money came from—us. (Yes, it's true. Not everyone at SCI FI Wire gets into those swanky Hollywood advance screenings.) But where'd the rest of that money come from?
Here, as best as we can determine according to the most recent info assembled by Variety, The Hollywood Reporter and other entertainment news organizations, is the country-by-country breakdown of ticket sales.
|Domestic (U.S. & Canada)||$430,846,514|
|Other Foreign Sales||410,849,799|
(Note: That final line item represents total foreign ticket sales minus countries we could specifically account for.)
So—how many more weeks do you think it'll be before Cameron inevitably breaks his own record?
