As the world awaits for James Cameron‘s upcoming Avatar sequel, many have speculated how much this film actually cost to produce. Earlier this month, Hypebeast reported that in order for Avatar: The Way of Water to break even, it would have to become the “fourth or fifth highest-grossing film in history.”

According to a recent report from The Hollywood Reporter, the budget for the long-awaited sequel sits somewhere between $350 million USD and $400 million USD, easily making it one of the most expensive films of all time, next to Marvel‘s Avengers: Endgame and Age Of Ultron.

The first Avatar film currently sits as the highest-grossing film of all time with $2.9 billion USD. Avengers: Endgame is second with $2.79 billion USD, while Titanic, which was also directed by Cameron comes in at third with $2.2 billion USD. In a previous interview with Total Film, Cameron claims, “We’re in a different world now than we were when I wrote this stuff, even. It’s the one-two punch – the pandemic and streaming. Or, conversely, maybe we’ll remind people what going to the theatre is all about. This film definitely does that. The question is: how many people give a shit now?”
