This week the film takes another $136.7 million dollars from 67 countries to bring its world gross to $1.2 Billion, the fastest film to do this.

With most of Europe still to see a release of the film it still has some dollars to rake in giving it the potential to be one of the most successful animations of all time, although it wont touch Frozen, the biggest or Toy Story 3 which both made over a billion.
Highest new film of the week with a release in 27 countries of the sequel movie Ted 2, taking a non too shabby $53.2 million on it;s debut weekend.

Other new film this week are
How to Train Your Dragon 2 at 2
22 Jump Street at 4
Earth to Echo at 9
The Purge Anarchy at 10
The House of Magic at 18
Pudsey The Dog The Movie at 19
Biggest of the new releases is Sabotage which came out on Wednesday, the once box office puller Arnold Schwarzenegger stars with Sam Worthington in this action drama from the writer of Training Day. Expect a top 5 new entry although only just.
Frank is the story of paper mashie head wearing Frank Sidebottom, in this played by Michael Fassbender who never takes off the head throughout the whole film. This could gain cult status and although not big enough to challenge the web slinger could see a top 3 entry.
The Wind Rises is from the Ghibli animated studio in Japan who have produced some of the best loved anime films of recent years. This is famed director Hayao Miyazaki's last film. A top 10 entry is for sure but a niche market could stop big numbers.
Also out this week is
Heaven Is For Real
This weekend in the US Cars 2 has hit the top spot with a weekend gross of $68 million of which only 40% of that take was from 3D screening, so is the public finally realisd that 3D is just a gimmick?
If you listen to Sony they would have you believe that 3D is the future, we'll be watching all out broadcast TV and home movies in 3D, Nintendo are another company who have invested a lot of money in 3D, producing the 3DS, there is certainly no shortage of temptation for us to embrace the 3D age.
Not lets look at the numbers, Cars 2 isn't a first, King Fu Panda 2 and Rio both took more money in 2D rather than 3D, and most people who saw Pixar's top grossing film last year Toy Story 3 seemed to agree that the 3D did nothing for the film. In Japan the 3DS has been struggling, being outsold by the 7 year old PSP, a device for which the successor has already been announced and is reducing in sales.
Is there a future for 3D? Who knows at the moment, but 3D is starting to show it's colours at the cinema, the surcharge on the glasses certainly cant be helping, Sky TV are struggling with the uptake of 3D subscribers, again there is a surcharge, and gamers seem to be rejecting the notion as well.
There are a couple of high profile catalogue 3D film that have been retrofitted with 3D, the Star Wars Saga and Titanic, this may well be a test as to how the public is embracing 3D, but on current evidence we don't want it, the novelty has warn off.
13 years ago when Titanic became the highest grossing film ever no-one could have even thought how the next 13 years in cinema were going to pan out, and the history of cinema that has unfolded this week is quite unique.
First of all the headline news is that after 6 weeks of release Avatar has, with ease, toppled Titanic as the biggest box office movie of all time, and strangely in a battle with himself James Cameron is the writer/director of both films.
What is even stranger is that Cameron hasn?ït made another film in the past 13 years to try and beat Titanic, so his last 2 films are not the top 2 biggest grossing films. There have been other pretenders to the throne over the years like The Lord of the Rings films, The Pirates of the Caribbean films and the Harry Potter films but no, Cameron come back after his sabbatical and hits the top again. Does this make Cameron the most commercially successful director ever? 2 films making over a billion dollars in the worldwide box office, no other director has come even close to this. One last note on James Cameron, he was the first director to make a film which took over $1 Billion worldwide and it now looks like he will be the first to have a movie make over $2 Billion at the box office, it really is just a matter of time.
