Avatar 2 will need to exceed $2 billion at the box office to be profitable

James Cameron refuses to reveal the exact budget of his film, but gives a scary idea…

How much did it cost Avatar: The Way of Water ? Last I heard, the film’s official budget was around $250 million. Obviously, it was really only an advance on expenses!

Whether james cameron is not yet ready to give a precise figure, he nevertheless admits to GQ Magazine thatAvatar 2is fucking expensive!”

What if Avatar 2 flopped? James Cameron is considering all the possibilities

The filmmaker would have even played fair with Disney and 20th Century Studios, assuring that his film would be “the worst investment in the history of cinema”. Basically, the amount of production is so high that it will be very difficult to earn money from it. According to the estimates of james cameron, “it will be necessary thatAvatar 2 becomes the third or fourth highest-grossing film in cinema history to be profitable. That’s our break-even point.”

This gives an idea of ​​the extravagant madness of The Way of the Water. Indeed, if the first Avatar dominates the all-time box office and is approaching $3 billion in revenue (after re-releases), number 2 is Avengers: Endgame with $2.7 million and number 3 on the chart titanic with $2.1 billion.

It is this box office that will have to achieve Avatar 2that is to say succeed in doing better than Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($2.07 billion) and Avengers: Infinity War ($2.05 billion) to bring in pennies for Disney. We therefore understand that this return to Pandora will have cost more than 1 billion dollars in various and varied production costs. Already the most expensive film in the history of cinema!

Avatar: The Way of Water will be released in theaters on December 14.
