The highest-grossing movie released in 2022, Avatar: The Way of Water, is on pace to surpass Top Gun: Maverick in box office receipts.

Since its May 2022 release, Top Gun: Maverick has amassed $1.488 billion in revenue worldwide. 

The sole significant rival for the title of the highest-grossing movie of 2022 has been Avatar: The Way of Water, which has remained in the top 15 of weekly box office revenue statistics for months. 

The movie has made $1.482 billion after over three weeks in theatres, falling just $6 million short of Top Gun: Maverick's enormous triumph.

Avatar: The Way of Water will undoubtedly surpass Top Gun: Maverick in box office revenue, making it the most successful movie of 2022, according to a Deadline report.

 Avatar: The Way of Water has established a new milestone, one of many the movie has recently accomplished. 

This includes breaking the $1 billion mark at the international box office and becoming the fastest movie to do so in 2022.

Given how quickly the movie has been making money, it was inevitable that Avatar: The Way of Water would surpass Top Gun: Maverick as the highest-grossing movie released in 2022.

The eagerly anticipated Avatar sequel from 2009 has maintained its dominance at the global movie office, in large part because of its ground-breaking computer-generated effects. 

 The first movie in history to make use of underwater motion capture, which adds to the sense of realism in the Pandoran environment, is Avatar: The Way of Water.

Many people may attend to see Avatar: The Way of Water to escape into Pandora for its three hours since James Cameron is committed to make the movie feel as authentic as possible.
