“AVATAR” HAS ALMOST CAUGHT UP TO “TITANIC”:

It’s more than obvious now that “Avatar” WILL surpass “Titanic” to become the highest-grossing movie in the history.

“Titanic’s” worldwide gross stands at $1.843 billion.  And, as of last night, “Avatar” had raked in $1.841 billion . . . just $2 million shy.  Since “Avatar” had made another $36 million this weekend, it’s a safe bet that it’s got at least another $2 million in it.

“Titanic” is still the highest-grossing movie in the U.S., with $600.8 million.  “Avatar” is only up to $552.8 million.

–But “Avatar” has topped “Titanic” in international box office . . . which means everywhere BUT the U.S.  “Avatar” has $1.29 billion, compared to “Titanic’s” $1.24 billion.
