Avatar 2 Box Office Collection: The Way of Water is James Cameron's most ambitious project so far. The filmmaker, since its inception, has been aiming to make it the most successful film of all time. The original Avatar, which was released in 2009 also went on to become the highest grossing film in the world. It was in 2019 that Avatar was dethroned by Marvel's blockbuster film Avengers Endgame. However, it seems, the film will take some time to cross Endgame's collection in India.
