The return of the Avatar brand after 13 years of absence has made world cinema at the end of 2022 explode. The voyeurism coming from the images, the way the world was built from the perspective of James Cameron could not help but overwhelm the viewers. As a result, the film has been reaping many good and interesting achievements that surely the audience and the whole crew will never forget.
Since its official release worldwide, Avatar: The Way of Water has earned many great achievements, far outpacing the projects shown at the same time. After 3 days of release, the film brought in more than 434 million USD (nearly 10.3 trillion dong), of which 134 million (more than 3.1 trillion dong) came from the domestic North American market. However, this result is only ranked 2nd in 2022 when Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is still the opening grossing champ.
However, the possibility of Avatar 2 reaching the milestone of $ 1 billion is entirely possible, and is even predicted to overthrow the “king” of the box office this year, which belongs to Tom Cruise’s Top Gun: Maverick.
Particularly in the Vietnamese market, part 2 of Avatar opened with an impressive revenue of VND 70 billion, helping James Cameron’s blockbuster to be listed in the list of 3 films with the highest first-week revenue of all time in Vietnam, and the first movie in the world. foreign countries ranked second after Avengers: Endgame. After nearly 6 days of screening, the film officially reached VND 100 billion in Vietnam at noon on December 21. This achievement, however, is still once again behind Doctor Strange 2 this year when this super product took 5 days to break the milestone.
On the other hand, the process of filming “Avatar 2” also helped the cast to record many remarkable achievements. With Kate Winslet, she suddenly broke the record for holding her breath underwater for the longest time previously held by Tom Cruise. The actor was in the water for 6 minutes to practice for the movie Mission: Impossible 5 in 2015, and now Kate Winslet has surpassed this number with a time of 7 minutes 14 seconds.
Sharing with USA Today, Kate Winslet joked that perhaps Tom Cruise is very depressed when he hears that his record has been beaten by “Miss Rose”. “I’m so sorry for Tom. I don’t know him at all, nor have I ever met him, but I’m sure he is very depressed because he heard that I broke the record. However, I am very happy, and surprised at the possibility. own and continue to make progress”.
In fact, besides Kate Winslet, the Avatar 2 family also has Sigourney Weaver who held his breath for 6 minutes and 30 seconds, which also surpassed Tom Cruise. Sharing her secrets on Jimmy Fallon’s show, Weaver said she was coached by great diving expert Kirk Krack, and Krack advised the cast that when you feel breathless, think about it. other things to distract yourself.
