Make it six weeks in a row at #1 for Avatar: The Way of Water. James Cameron‘s blockbuster sequel to the 2009 film topped the weekend box office with an estimated $20 million, bringing its total domestic gross to $598 million. Globally, it’s now the sixth movie to earn $2 billion or more, grossing $2.024 billion. That makes it the #6 all-time global earner, just $28 million behind Avengers: Infinity War.

The animated adventure Puss in Boots: The Last Wish also remained strong, posting a second-place finish with an estimated $11.5 million. To date, The Last Wish has grossed $126.4 million domestically and $297 million worldwide.

The horror film M3GAN slipped to third place, delivering an estimated $9.3 million. Its current North American tally stands at $73 million.

The weekend’s only new major release, the suspense thriller Missing, took fourth place with an estimated $9.3 million.

Rounding out the top five was the Tom Hanks-led drama A Man Called Otto, adding an estimated $9 million to its domestic haul, which now stands at $35.3 million.

(A previous version of this story published on 1/23/23 erroneously stated that ‘Avatar: The Way of Water’ is the #5 highest-grossing film globally of all time. It is in fact the #6 highest-grossing film globally of all time. The text above has been updated accordingly.)
