Beating Titanic's global box office numbers seemed close to impossible. The film ran for 15 consecutive weekends at the top of the box office to accomplish its rake of $1.84 billion. We've known about James Cameron's Avatar for at least the past few years, and most assumed that the film would have a tough time earning its exaggerated budget back. Cameron has again gone far beyond everyone's expectations, made naysayers shove their feet, hands, and whatever else they could fit in their mouths, and has now taken down the record laid down by Titanic more than a decade ago.

Avatar Tops Titanic at Global Box Office

Science-fiction epic Avatar has set a new global box office record, taking 1.85 billion dollars and sinking Titanic to become the biggest earning film of all time, figures showed Tuesday.

"On Monday, January 25, Avatar officially passed Titanic to become the highest grossing film in history at the worldwide box office," 20th Century Fox studios said in a statement.

It added that Oscar-winning director James Cameron's groundbreaking 3-D spectacular had by Monday taken 16 million dollars more than Titanic, which was also directed by Cameron.

Avatar had taken 1.859 billion dollars, compared with the box-office total for the 1997 Oscar-winning Titanic which took 1.843 billion dollars, the statement said.

Now the only question remains is how much further Avatar will take the global box office, and will we ever see another film come anywhere close to earning as much?
