It’s been more than a month since Avatar: The Way of Water hit theaters. Yet it continues to soar at the box office.
This weekend the film finished in first place at the domestic box office for the seventh week in a row. It grossed an additional $15.7 million.
The film’s continued success comes on the heels of the film received four Oscar nominations, including Best Picture, which were revealed last week.
With a global total of $2.1 billion, The Way of Water is the fourth highest grossing film of all time.
Set more than a decade after the events of the first film, Avatar: The Way of Water begins to tell the story of the Sully family (Jake, Neytiri, and their kids), the trouble that follows them, the lengths they go to keep each other safe, the battles they fight to stay alive, and the tragedies they endure.
