For the actress, it’s a double victory!
The global box office is a determining factor in the success of a film. In the age of blockbusters and expensive movies, the more money raised the better – even if it happens years after the original release. Avatar recently returned to the highest-grossing position in movie history, more than a decade after its original release, surpassing Avengers: Endgame, which won the position in 2019.
Actress Zoe Saldana, who was in both productions, has a lot to celebrate. In Ultimato, she plays Gamora, a daughter of Thanos who must turn against the Mad Titan. In Avatar, she played the role of Neytiri, a warrior of the Na’vi people who fight to defend their planet from human invaders. Recently, Saldana used her Instagram to congratulate the Avatar team on their historic achievement:
“Kudos to ‘Avatar’ on returning to being the # 1 movie of all time. China, we owe you one! Knowing that I’m in the “two greatest movies of all time” is a wonderful thing, to say the least. This is for all fans of Avatar and Avengers: Ultimatum: Thank you! Thank you! Gracias! Grazie! “

It’s important to note that Zoe Saldana is set to return to these two universes in a grand way soon. The actress has already been confirmed in several of the Avatar sequences, starting with the first sequel due in theaters in late 2022. She is also set to reprise the role of Gamora in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, one of upcoming Marvel Studios projects.
Another hit for Disney is the rise of Avatar at the box office. The film was from Fox, but with the acquisition of the studio by the House of Mickey Mouse, the franchise created by James Cameron is now part of the vast repertoire of intellectual property and sagas dominated by Disney. This success only increases with the upcoming release of the four sequences already planned.
Avatar 2 hits theaters in December 2022. Thereafter, all other films will be released every 2 years, if there is no further delay.
