This weekend makes The Way of Water the sixth highest grossing global release of all time, at $2.024 billion — and its within striking distance of Avengers: Infinity War in fifth place. Earth’s mightiest heroes don’t stand much a chance against the Na’vi over at the IMAX box office either, with Avatar closing in on Avengers: Endgame to become the highest grossing IMAX release ever.

Puss in Boots: The Last Wish is proving that this cat’s got legs, taking second place at the domestic box office, adding $11.5 million to bring its five-week total to $126.5 million. M3GANs little doll legs are also strutting along nicely, earning $9.8 million for a three-week total of $73.3 million.
