Box office special report: 'Avatar' beats 'Titanic' as worldwide box office leader

James Cameron really is King of the World. For the 55-year old director is now the proud papa of the top two highest-grossing movies ever. Twentieth Century Fox announced today that Avatar has crossed Titanic's worldwide box office gross of $1.843 billion on Monday and now holds the global box office record of $1.859 billion. Most of the credit for the film's success has to be given to its phenomenal performance in 3-D, which accounts for 80% of the film's domestic box-office gross. Avatar still needs another $45 million to cross Titanic's domestic gross of $600 million, a feat that will be achieved in the next two weeks.
