The movie ‘Avatar: Waterway’ is sweeping the world’s theaters. It seems likely to achieve 10 million viewers during the Lunar New Year holiday.
The movie “Avatar: Waterway” (directed by James Cameron) topped the domestic and North American box offices on the weekend of its fifth week of release. It’s a solo performance without a hitch.
According to the integrated computer network for movie theater tickets on the 17th, ‘Avatar 2’ attracted 48,891 viewers on the 16th.

If the current trend continues, it is highly likely that it will reach a cumulative 10 million viewers during the Lunar New Year holiday (21-24th) or after that. If “Avatar 2” exceeds 10 million cumulative audiences, it will be the first time since “Criminal City 2” last year. In foreign currency, it will be the first 10 million movie in about three and a half years since “Aladdin” in 2019. The previous movie “Avatar,” which was screened in 2009, surpassed 10 million viewers for the first time in foreign currency history in 38 days.
