FACTOpinion: Avatar was the first movie to ever gross the US$ 2,000,000,000 mark worldwide (and later the US$ 2.5 billion mark), making it the highest grossing film in history. At $10 a ticket, that’s $250,000,000 worth of paper ticket stubs that are manufactured by cutting down trees, not including tax or Real3D glasses. HAPPY NEW YEAR!
