AVATAR Rules!!!!…….Worldwide Box office breaks $1Billion……in Three weeks!

…….AVATAR is still a long way from breaking a profit since the movie cost a whopping $280 million to produce, $150 Million for worldwide marketing and distribution…..since the studio loop off almost 505 of the gross and the theatre’s get their take…the movie has probably only stared to show a small profit for its producers……20th Century Fox, Dune Entertainment and Ingenious Film Partners……

The movie is doing better outside the United States than in…..”Avatar” is already the highest-grossing film of all time in Russia, the fourth highest in Spain and Australia, and the second-biggest U.S. movie ever in France, India and South Korea. It opens on Monday in China, an increasingly lucrative market for effects-laden tent-pole films, and on Jan. 15 in Italy.
