Closing in on a billion at the box office, but apparently it needs to make close to two billion just to break even.
Yeah, in 2 different interviews Cameron said it needed to either be the 5th highest grossing movie of all time or the 8th highest just to break even. That puts it's break-even point somewhere between Lion King 2019 ($1.66b) and Avengers: Infinity War ($2.05b). With the movie currently at $955m after 2 weekends and 1 week, and the 2nd weekend being down by 58%, it's not a great sign for the kind of legs needed to hit break even. It had a strong post-Christmas Monday though, bringing in $32m domestic and about $65m international, which may be a sign of the legs starting to improve.
