'Avatar' tops 'Titanic' domestic box-office record
Avatar has officially become the highest-grossing domestic box office movie ever, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The James Cameron-directed 3D epic now clocks in at $601.1 million, surpassing Cameron’s 1998 movie Titanic, which racked up $600.8 million. Avatar‘s international tally comes to $1.48 billion for a total cume of $2.08 billion. That total is padded by extra charges for 3D tickets as well as the higher ticket prices now compared to 1998. Gone With the Wind, however, still remains the highest ticket-seller of all time.
