Avatar: The Way of Water has become the 7th biggest movie of all time, just four weeks after its release.
The sequel has so far grossed over $1.7 billion (£1.395 billion) at the global box office overtaking Jurassic World this weekend.
The first Avatar film is still the highest grossing movie of all time, surpassing Avengers: Endgame when it was re-released in 2021.
Since its release on 16 December, only Titanic, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Avengers: Infinity War and Spider-Man: No Way Home as well as Endgame and Avatar have grossed more money worldwide.
The Way of Water surpassed $1 billion at the box office in just 14 days, the sixth fastest of all time and five days quicker than its predecessor.
Despite being released only a fortnight before the end of the year, Avatar: The Way of Water finished as the highest grossing film of 2022, ahead of Top Gun: Maverick and Jurassic World Dominion, the only other movies to gross more than $1 billion last year.
