At 100, 'Titanic' star Gloria Stuart lets go

Gloria Stuart, a beautiful star of many musicals and B-movies from Hollywood's heyday, died in her West Los Angeles home on Sept. 26. She is best known for her wonderful role in James Cameron's Titanic (1997), where she played the 101 year-old Rose. Stuart was nominated for an Academy Award for the part. She was diagnosed with lung cancer several years ago, and is survived by her daughter, four grandchildren, and 12 great-grandchildren.

So the news is out: Avatar has officially surpassed Titanic as the highest grossing movie (worldwide) of all time and will soon surpass it in the United States as well.

AVATAR still on track to dethrone TITANIC both domestically and worldwide

I previously reported that James Cameron's Avatar might sink Titanic as the top grossing film of all time. Well, some time has passed and it looks like this will happen.

AVATAR is officially the #2 biggest movie of all time and sequels are confirmed

The numbers don't lie. With $1.13 billion in worldwide box office receipts, Avatar has officially outsold The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King to become the second highest grossing movie of all time, after only 20 days. Can it beat Titanic? Yes, I think it can

In other Avatar news, some guy from Ain't It Cool News claims James Cameron confirmed at a Q&A session that there will be trilogy of Avatar films. This would be the first actual confirmation of a sequel from Cameron. A couple weeks back he said that he's open to the idea of sequels, and that they'd explore the other moons around Pandora, but wanted to see how well the film was received.

AVATAR likely to dethrone TITANIC in worldwide box office

By the end of this week, Avatar will surpass Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest and Lord of the Rings: Return of the King to become the #2 worldwide highest grossing movie of all time. It's going to happen, so make peace with it. As of Sunday, Return of the King, the current #2, is less than $100 million ahead of Avatar. It sits at $1.11 billion in sales, compared to Avatar's $1.02 billion.

Honestly, by the end of today (Tuesday) or tomorrow, Avatar could be #2. The big question: can it dethrone Titanic (another Cameron movie). Titanic is the #1 movie of all time with $1.84 billion in worldwide ticket sales. I think so, and here's why.
