3-D release steers ‘Titanic’ past $2 billion mark   Leave a comment

James Cameron has shored up his position as king of the worldwide box office.

Cameron’s 1997 blockbuster “Titanic” sailed beyond the $2 billion mark in lifetime ticket sales, thanks to a 3-D re-release of the film that was timed to the centennial of the ship’s sinking.

Only one other movie has topped $2 billion, and it’s also Cameron’s. His 2009 sci-fi smash “Avatar” earned $2.8 billion worldwide.

The “Titanic” reissue took in about $100 million this weekend — $11.6 million domestically and a whopping $88.2 million in 69 overseas markets. That included a $58 million debut in China and put the re-release total worldwide at $190.8 million.

Added to the film’s $1.84 billion haul in its original release, “Titanic” now stands at $2.03 billion worldwide.

In order to put James Cameron on top of box office history, Titantic decided to sink again in 3D, which one can only imagine can be really cool. Both Cameron’s movies, Titanic and Avatar, have earned over $2 billion in the box office.
