Entertainment – Avatar could beat Titanic record

MUMBAI: If James Cameron’s box-office hit Avatar manages to beat this week’s competitors like Denzel Washington’s The Book of ElI and the Jackie Chan starrer The Spy Next Door, prospects of it cruising past Titanic in the books of history.

Industrites feel it is possible for Avatar to beat the $1.84 billion worldwide collection of Titantic, a record that’s stood since 1998.

Last weekend, Avatar shrugged three releases in posting the first four-peat performance since The Dark Knight. If the James Cameron film wins again, it would be the first to top the rankings for five consecutive weeks since Disney’s horror film The Sixth Sense in 1999.

Meanwhile, it is being widely talked that Fox intends to release Avatar on DVD in April.

As for its weekend prospects, the sci-fi epic could fall 25 to 30 per cent this session.

Though it slid 27 per cent last weekend, it could still ring up about $36 million while last Monday’s haul could produce a collection of $40 million-plus for the holiday-stretched frame. That likely would be enough to beat the newcomers.
