To Create History By Breaking 1997’s Star Wars Special Edition’s Record By Becoming #1 Surpassing The Current Releases?
Titanic helmed by James Cameron, starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet, is one of the cult classics in Hollywood. Back in 1997, when the film had released it had broken every record at the box office becoming the third-highest-grossing film of all time at the worldwide box office. Since then, nobody has forgotten the magic of the movie. This Valentine’s week, Titanic will be re-released, and reports are rife that the film might hit the benchmark in over 25 years by reaching the #1 position at the domestic box office. Read below to know more.
For the unversed, the tragic disaster and the love story between Jack and Rose is still one of iconic and epic storytelling. Titanic, apart from the appreciation and acclaimation, also won Best Picture and 10 other Oscars.
Now, as per IndieWire, if Titanic can beat the Super Bowl weekend with about $10 million, then there’s a high possibility that the James Cameron directorial might become the first reissue to hit No. 1 since the Star Wars special editions which was released in 1997 same year when Titanic originally premiered.
However, it not just the Super Bowl, to become #1 at the box office, Titanic has to compete with a few other films. James Cameron’s Avatar sequel Avatar: The Way Of Water has been climbing the charts but from the looks of it seems it won’t earn more than $9 million this weekend as the last weekend it had grossed $11 million.
Another top contender to compete for box office domination is 80 for Brady which is a surprise hit, and another one might be Salma Hayek‘s Magic Mike’s Last Dance. Well, Valentine’s week demands romantic and lovey-dovey situations, and what could be better than watching Titanic together with your loved one?
What do you think will Titanic be able to reach the No. 1 position at the box office with its re-release? Let us know!
