Box Office: ‘Avatar: The Way of Water’ Keeps Rolling on Top in Fifth Weekend

January 14, 2023

“Avatar: The Way of Water” is still drawing audiences at the domestic box office, maintaining a substantial lead against competition as it looks to stay No. 1 for a fifth weekend.

Disney and 20th Century Studios’ science-fiction smash added $7 million on Friday, bolstering its total domestic total to an impressive $538.8 million. The film is looking to add roughly $36 million through the four-day Martin Luther King Jr. Day weekend. For the three-day frame ending Sunday, “Avatar 2” is projecting a drop of roughly 36% from last weekend.

Certainly “The Way of Water” isn’t putting up the type of superlative staying power that its predecessor did: James Cameron’s 2009 holiday release rode the wave of word of mouth with a series of week-to-week drops in January that never ballooned past 27%. However, “The Way of Water” is currently outpacing its preceding entry, with a $538 million total that outweighs the roughly $500 million haul that the first “Avatar” had accrued by MLK weekend in 2010.
