Another boxoffice milestone
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.
