‘Avatar 2’ Expected to Top Seventh Straight Weekend Box Office

Disney-owned 20th Century Studios’ sequel Avatar: The Way of Water has already become the fifth-highest-grossing theatrical release in history. That fiscal trend is set to expand through the Jan. 29 weekend as director James Cameron’s follow-up to his 2009 blockbuster Avatar looks set to capture its seventh-consecutive weekend box office with a projected $15-plus million in ticket sales.

The movie, which topped $2.92 billion in global revenue through Jan. 26, isn’t expected to have much theatrical competition until the Feb. 17 release of Marvel Studios’ Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.

Meanwhile, Universal Pictures’ Puss in Boots: The Last Wish and M3GAN are projected to add another $10.7 million and $6.7 million in tickets sales, respectively. Both movies are also available to rent/buy across digital retail platforms.

Sony Pictures’ A Man Called Otto should add $6.9 million in revenue, upping the Tom Hanks-starrer’s worldwide revenue near $65 million.

Neon’s new sci-fi horror release Infinity Pool, about a couple (Alexander SkarsgĂ„rd and Cleopatra Coleman) on vacation who venture outside the resort grounds and suddenly find themselves in a culture filled with violence, hedonism and terror, is projected to sell $2.2 million worth of tickets across 2,000 screens.
