An­other box­of­fice mile­stone

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - News -

Avatar has just be­come the big­gest film ever. What’s that you say? Isn’t this an­cient news? Well, though Jim Cameron’s pic­ture took the world­wide record a month ago, it didn’t man­age to grab the Ir­ish ti­tle un­til last week. As Avatar fi­nally be­gins to drift out of cin­e­mas, it be­comes clear that, con­sid­er­ing dif­fer­ences in ticket prices, for­mer box-of­fice champ Ti­tanic put many more bums on seats. As of last week­end, Avatar had raked in ¤9,747,390 on this is­land. Can it be­come the first film ever to make it into eight-fig­ures? It looks as if it may be too late for that.
