James Cameron Makes History As ‘Avatar: The Way Of Water’ Tops $2 Billion At The Box Office

This puts director James Cameron in the uniquely unmatched position of having directed three of the four top-grossing films of all time.

Meanwhile, the success of the second “Avatar” film means that Cameron will be making good on his plans for more sequels.

“It looks like with the momentum that the film has now that we’ll easily pass our break even in the next few days, so it looks like I can’t wiggle out of this and I’m gonna have to do these other sequels,” he said during an appearance on “Who’s Talking with Chris Wallace”. “I know what I’m going to be doing the next six or seven years.”
