Titanic premiered in 1997, 12 years ago with less movie theaters, less world population, and the most important thing, 12 years ago there weren’t any 3D Cinemas or IMAX theaters, which charges double or triple the prize of the tickets, giving to Avatar a huge advantage over Titanic’s box office. However nowadays the competence between movies is clearly bigger and in the 90s the online sites and pirated movies were not as as today.
James Cameron will convert Avatar into a trilogy, so we will see if can overcome himself for a second time in Avatar 2.
