MovieTickets EVP Predicts 'Avatar' Will Break 'Titanic' Box Office Record

avatar2 narrowAs of this morning, Avatar accounts for 76% of tickets sold at this week to lead all films. There’s over 200 sold out performances for the pic in the coming weeks. Of those sellouts, 168 are for 3D or IMAX 3D performances. “Avatar has already grossed $429 million domestically, leaving it $172 million short of eclipsing Titanic as the top grossing film of all-time,” said Executive Vice President Walt Borchers. “That’s a steep climb, but with the volume of ticket buying we’ve seen on our site over the past month, there is a very good chance that it could, in fact, break Titanic’s record.”
