For the third week in a row, ‘Avatar: The Way of Water’ dominates the box office.

James Cameron’s long-awaited sequel to the first “Avatar” film earned an estimated $63 million over the holiday weekend, roughly the same as the previous week, and has now earned more than $400 million domestically and more than $1.3 billion worldwide. “The Way of Water” is already the 15th highest-grossing film in history, trailing only the first “Black Panther.”

According to Comscore data released on Sunday, “Avatar” far outperformed the runner-up, Universal’s “Shrek” spinoff “Puss in Boots: The Last Wish,” which earned an estimated $16 million, and Disney’s “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever,” which earned around $4.8 million.

“Whitney Houston: I Wanna Dance With Somebody,” a Sony biopic, grossed $4.2 million in its second week of release. Despite its five Golden Globe nominations, “Babylon,” the epic of early Hollywood starring Brad Pitt and Margot Robbie, has performed poorly.

The Paramount release earned only $2.7 million in its second week, a 24% decrease, with an average of $815 per location. In comparison, the new “Avatar” film from 20th Century Fox grossed more than $15 million.

Comscore estimates ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at US and Canadian theatres. The final domestic data will be released on Monday.
