James Cameron is a man that you should not bet against. From Titanic to Terminator, the man knows how to make movies, and more importantly for Hollywood, make money. Avatar has grossed over $1 Billion worldwide, one of only five films throughout history to do so.
Examiner.com tried to figure out why the film has not lost any momentum. So they spoke with Bert Livingston from 20th Century Fox who provided a theory. “It’s like a runaway freight train. It just keeps doing business,” Livingston said. “Here’s what’s happening: I think everybody has to see ‘Avatar’ once. Even people who don’t normally go to the movies, they’ve heard about it and are saying ‘I have to see it.’ Then there’s those people seeing it multiple times.”
