‘Titanic’ cruises past $2B mark
Director James Cameron’s classic romance Titanic has reached another milestone after cruising past the $2 billion mark in overall ticket sales.
The 1997 epic, starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet, was re-released in 3D earlier this month to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the tragic cruise liner.
And, after raking in $11.6 million in America during its opening weekend and a whopping $88.2 million overseas, the film's total haul now stands at $2.03 billion.
Only one other film has achieved greater monetary success - Cameron's 2009 blockbuster Avatar, which earned a total of $2.8 billion.
