Disney's "Avatar: The Way of Water" has made history by crossing the $2 billion mark at the global box office, to become the sixth highest-grossing movie of all time, according to Box Office data.
This makes it the third James Cameron film to reach this milestone – doing so after just six weeks of launch.

The film is now the sixth highest-grossing film of all time and will likely move up in the ranking ladder as its run in theatres continues.
