James Cameron’s Avatar is now the number one highest grossing international release, surpassing the 1.8 billion dollar record that James Cameron’s previous film, Titanic, set.
This is an incredible feat, and it is even more amazing that both of the films had the same director. Patrick made the comment that Cameron could retire now, and his family would probably never have to work again for at least 3 generations!
While that may be possible, I don’t think Mr. Cameron should stop any time soon. If anything, I’ll bet he’s already got another project underway as I write this.
I think that it is safe to say that James Cameron has set a film precedent that will be very difficult for anyone else to reach. Avatar remains the number one film for the sixth week in a row, once again shadowing a myriad of new releases. I don’t care who you are, because that’s freakin’ impressive. End of story.
Congrats, Mr. Cameron, your success is well-earned. I personally enjoy quality over quantity, and I think you subscribe to the same school of thought.
