Entertainment – In third weekend, Avatar is second biggest global release

MUMBAI: In its third weekend, Avatar has turned out to be the second highest grossing worldwide release in history garnering $1.131 billion. Now, it should have little trouble retaining its box-office crown as it sweeps past $ 800 million overseas.

The super hit Fox project currently stands at $760.9 million and has amassed $370.8 million in North America.

The weekend session is definitely going to bring with it good results. Till date the film’s tally in China stands at $14.4 million after a mere three days of its release there.

While the film has set records everywhere, there have been particularly notable grosses in France ($90.2m), Russia ($62.4m), Germany ($62.9m), the UK ($58.1m), Spain ($51.8m), Australia ($50.2m), South Korea ($49.6m) and Japan ($42.8 m).

Elsewhere, Avatar stands at $24.9m in Mexico, $23,7m in Brazil, $15.7m in India, $14.8m in Taiwan, $10.3m in Holland, $9.7m in Poland, $9.5m in Denmark, $8m in Greece, $7m in Turkey, $6m in Thailand, $5m in Malaysia, and $3.8m in the UAE.
