It's going to get awful close to Titanic's worldwide gross. This is insane.

If it does well during the Awards season, it might do it. That's what helped keep Titanic afloat for so long.

This time of year there's not much competition from an entertainment perspective; it's when the studios tend to dump their shitty stuff. So when people are faced with the choice between seeing something new that may not be very good or going back to experience something amazing again, Avatar may get a LOT of repeat business.

I think it'll top $550 in North America, but I don't see it sinking Titanic's domestic $600m (not to mention that adjusts to about $800m now, and without 3D) but it could very likely top it worldwide.

Well, Titanic's adjusted total still isn't the highest of all-time. While several adjusted list champs like Gone With The Wind or Star Wars received multiple releases, if you adjust The Sound of Music's original take it comes out to over a billion.

The adjusted total for Gone With The Wind's original box office take would still beat The Sound Of Music. If I'm reading boxofficemojo right, the original take was $189,523,031. Combine that with being released almost 30 years earlier, and it is far and away the leader.

No, that isn't the original take. That's including re-releases, and GWTW had many of those over the years. Star Wars' total also includes the Special Edition re-releases, which isn't really fair to include. You'd really have to have the totals for each separate release, and adjust those accordingly per year to have a more legitimate estimate. There's no way it made $189 million in 1939, that's for sure.

The Sound of Music is the oldest contender that I think there's clear enough data for.

They state that GWTW's domestic lifetime gross is $198,676,459, and that it's domestic total gross was $189,523,031. If the first figure is the overall domestic gross, what is the other one for? Apparently when it first came out, it played continuously in theaters for four years.

I know it had numerous re-releases, but I don't think it pulled much in from those, although I can't find the figures anywhere.

EDIT - never mind, I found it. Looks like all the previous re-releases totalled about $80 million. So roughly $100 million at the beginning.
