You'll be surprised then. Avatar 2's presales spread throughout the weekend are incredibly backloaded, with more tickets sold on Sunday and Saturday than Friday. The holidays are also a massive factor. It's difficult to directly compare the presales of this film to heavily fan-driven Summer releases. 

What holiday, China doesn't celebrate Christmas officially. Also this film is very fan driven, fans of movie technology and Cameron. Besides, Avatar 2's pre-sale are horrible in third-tier cities and four-tier cities, small cities are the backbone of great box office, now Avatar 2 lacks that in that regard. Of course the WOM could turn it around, but that doesn't normally translate during opening weekend. The X factor you haven't consider is covid, yes it's not a thing in western countries now, but in China covid is still an very impactful factor.  There already are cities where medical systems are overwhelmed by covid cases and it has only been one week since the restrictions were eased. We don't know how serious this issue might become.

It might not beat the 1st one but it'll cross 2b. there's no big movie coming so it'll stay in theater for quite a long time

pre-sale and opening weekend is not everything, it's not like endgame when people rush to see it 1st week

Presales are pacing faster than your comps though. In real time. It's already caught up to Fast and Furious. This is 3 hours ago. 

 

 

 

This isn't going to track like a traditional fan driven film because it's primarily not. While it does have its hardcore fans, Avatar is about as 4 quadrant as it gets. It's attracts every demographic, especially the one that makes blockbusters into monster blockbusters: families and casuals who buy tickets the day of. 

 

JW3 is also a rough comparison considering the much harsher restrictions and smaller potential audience at the time.

I think underestimating it would be foolish, just as people underestimated Titanic and the first movie. But we'll see. If audience reception is "meh" I think it could falter out into January. Most of Titanic and Avatar's respective grosses happened in January.

I'm here for Zoe Saldaña's Avatar smashing. :gaycat1:

But I'm also here for James Cameron's Avatar underperfoming or flopping. Not gonna lie, that would be kinda iconic. :redface:

This movie looks so bland and uninspired. Nothing new about it to get me excited.  It’ll be lucky to make Pixar’s TURNING RED opening numbers.

Once again ATRL is out of touch with what the GP want.

This will definitely smash and make at least 1.5B at box office.

Did you guys buy your tickets for Dolby 3D?

 

I was debating if I should even bother watching it in 2D or the way it was intended.

The fact that she plays a major role in all of them. #QueenTingz

"She has appeared in three of the five highest-grossing films of all time (Avatar, Avengers: Infinity War, and Avengers: Endgame), a feat not achieved by any other performer. Her films have grossed more than $11 billion worldwide, and she is the second-highest-grossing film actress of all time as of 2019."

Why was my Avatar box office thread closed? :what: The movie is already breaking presale records and will be released in some international markets 3 days early. 

 

But of course they would never close a thread made just to drag Taylor, Xtina, etc. :rip:

I can’t believe this movie is already coming out next week. I’ve been waiting for 13 years :deadbanana:
