I would really LOVE to get the chance to see this in a theater. The 3D re release came out only weeks before I got into movies so I just missed it

So apparently Apple is coming out with this thing called the "iPod" for music. Why bother when we have Walkman?

except for avatar, which directed by the same director, never had a movie break titanic's record, they dont make it in term of nominal, let alone adjusted figure

With the re-release I imagine ?

 

Titanic made 1,84 billion on is initial theatrical run, it took  Force Awaken (2.07b) to beat it in term of nominal, but it was not that close of Titanic 2.75 billion adjusted for inflation in 2015/2016 money (not ticket price, just purchasing power)

Titanic came out in a different era too.  No internet, no streaming, no apple tv no android boxes.

No China market (and much smaller world cinema market) at the same time, Titanic made 145 million in China in it's 2012 re-release  while people had bluray of the movie available and easily could have find it online before it's release, who knows how it would have done last year... In 2012 Titanic was almost number one in the China market, ended #2 not far from the top, that is probably not far from a 400 million performance today in 2017 China market.

 

Avatar was in that different era and still made a crazy amount, every other movie in the 90's was in the same era of Titanic, none came close to Titanic not even Star Wars.

 

Not saying that Titanic would have made 2.75 billion in 2015/2016 and I fully understand your point about how hard it is to translate performance over different era and those lighting in the bottle positive loop are probably full of chaos, but Titanic world market share was at a special level and dominate is contemporary competition pretty much at the same level as the first Star Wars, Gone With the Wind, E.T., it is at the very top level.

That article is fascinating.  I've just spent the last half hour reading about Sherry Lansing and her trials and tribulations in the business.  Read the stuff about Fatal Attraction.  Amazing!
