As has often been the case throughout his unprecedented career, James Cameron once again made cinematic history this weekend.

Its long-awaited sequel “Avatar: The Way of Water” has now grossed over $2 billion worldwide, as reported by Deadline.

This grand total is after the film’s box office this weekend, the sixth straight weekend the film has held the No. 1 spot since its December release.

CNN has reached out to “Avatar: The Way of Water” production studio Disney to comment on the film’s latest financial achievement.

“Avatar: The Way of the Water” is the sequel to Cameron’s 2009 alien epic “Avatar,” which remains at the top of the list of best-selling movies of all time, according to Box Office Mojo.

Another of Cameron’s films is also in the $2 billion club – 1997’s ‘Titanic’. Only three other films are in this club – 2015’s ‘Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens’. Avengers: Infinity War” from 2018 and “Avengers: Endgame” from a year later.

Cameron is therefore the only director to be able to boast that three of his films are among the six to have made more than 2 billion dollars, as well as in the top 6 of the best-selling films of all time.

The director plans to release at least three more “Avatar” sequels in the future.
