James Cameron's movie Avatar is also up to $1.3 billion worldwide, just $500 million short of the all-time record held by his other massive hit, Titanic. The story of its fourth consecutive weekend domestic box-office victory is right here at The Reject Report.
Needless to say, I am very happy to see Avatar topple the utterly unworthy, witless Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen (Rotten Tomatoes rating: 20 percent) from the Number One perch for 2009. At least some measure of skill went into Avatar. Its next box office targets: The Dark Knight and Titanic.
Roger Ebert said it best: the King of the World just got himself re-elected. So true.
