It’s no Taylor Lautner story, but I’m told by 20th Century Fox sources that its Avatar will likely be the #2 movie of all time as soon as tonight. Its grosses, helped by higher 3D ticket prices, are overtaking 2D Lord Of The Rings: Return Of The King ($1,119,110,941), but is still behind #1, James Cameron’s earlier 2D epic Titanic ($1,842,879,955). Its new domestic total, including Wednesday’s grosses, is $374,436,685. And it’s taken only 20 days! I’ll have Avatar‘s latest worldwide gross in the morning.
