Avatar has Passed the $1 billion mark. Whoa.

Ok, we all new that Avatar wouldn’t suck in the box office, but we didn’t know that it would make $1 billion dollars in just a couple days. It’s been revealed that James Cameron’s film made more than $1.02 billion dollars in just 3 weeks!

The movie is on track to becoming the second highest grossing film of all time. Given the positive word-of-mouth reaction, and with the Twitter echo-chamber having given the film its blessing, it’s probably going to hover around the top of the weekly money charts for a little while yet. That’s unlike the typical popcorn movie that has a big opening weekend then falls off the face of the Earth.

I actually saw the movie twice, once in standard, because I arrived too late to the movie theater and tickets were all sold out until 10:45 pm and I couldn’t wait, so I saw it in non-3D. The second time I saw it in Imax 3d. It has to be one of the best movies I’ve seen in a long time (especially after that stretch of horrible movies like Quarantine & Cloverfield, as well as The mist.
