Black Panther sequel dominated the domestic box office for five consecutive weekends
On one of the lowest-earning weekends in 2022, the Black Panther sequel leads the box office. There was a big responsibility and immense pressure on the makers and the entire team to carry forward the legacy after the Hollywood actor Chadwick Boseman’s (lead actor of Black Panther Part 1) death. It seems that the Letitia Wright starred Black Panther managed to live up to expectations in absence of a true black panther.

Though it’s likely to change once “Avatar: The Way of Water” hits the theatres on December 16. With the release of Avatar: The way of water, the studio decides not to open any new movies in wide release. This enabled Ryan Coogler’s, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever to extend its reigns at the box office.
Avatar: the way of water is reportedly one of the most expensive films ever made
Avatar: The way of water (2022) is the sequel to Avatar, which was released in 2009. Both movies were directed by James Cameron. The 2009’s Avatar grossed $2.9 million at the box office.
Avatar: the way of water is reportedly one of the most expensive films ever made, the budget of the movie is between $350 million to $400 million, and the director of this film James Cameron has planned 3 other films in the Avatar saga. Though the making of Avatar 4 and 5 will depend on the success of the first two sequels of Avatar, the director said.
The lead star of the movie Zoe Saldaña and Sam Worthington plays the role of Ney’tiri and Jake Sulley same as the original part of Avatar. Other returning cast members are Stephan Lang as Colonel Quaritch and Kate Winslet as Ronal, while Sigourney Weaver who played the character of Dr. Grace Augustine, will appear in a different role as Kiri (a Young Na’vi female).
Let’s see how far James Cameron’s Avatar: the way of water goes at the box office.
