Just six weeks after its premiere, James Cameron’s fantasy film Avatar: The Way of the Water has grossed $2 billion worldwide. The tape collected the first billion in 14 days. This is the sixth film in history – and the first during the pandemic – to break that mark. Also on the list are Avatar, Avengers: Endgame, Titanic, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and Avengers: Infinity War.

James Cameron directed three of the six highest grossing films of all time. He is also the only director with three films that have grossed over $2 billion. Zoe Saldana, who played Neytiri in Avatar, starred in four of the six films that grossed over $2 billion. She also appears in Avengers: Endgame and Avengers: Infinity War.

Prior to the sequel’s theatrical release, James Cameron stated that Avatar 2 needed to be one of the three or four highest-grossing films of all time to break even.

The original Avatar, which debuted in theaters 13 years ago, remains the highest-grossing film of all time with $2.9 billion. Avengers: Endgame is in second place with $2.79 billion, while Titanic is the third highest-grossing movie of all time with $2.19 billion.

“Avatar: The Way of Water” was filmed in 3D at 48 fps and HFR (high frame rate) technology, which is why the equipment in cinemas in Japan simply could not stand it. For this film, Cameron and his team built a new Sony Venice camera system that connects several high quality cameras together to create a stereoscopic 3D system. Cameron also figured out how best to shoot and capture motion both above and below the water.

Major Indian retailer Reliance Retail has implemented support for digital rupee payments in one of its Freshpik stores and plans to expand this experience to all formats of the network.

One of the largest retail chains in India, Reliance Retail, began accepting digital rupees as part of a pilot project.

V Subramaniam, chief executive of Reliance Retail, noted that the adoption of a central bank digital currency (CBDC) is in line with the firm’s vision of providing “choice” to Indian consumers. The executive also emphasized that this initiative gives the firm the opportunity to offer an alternative payment method in its stores.

To make a purchase, customers only need to scan a QR code.

“Indians will get another efficient and secure alternative payment method” — said the top manager.

The deployment of CBDC was made possible through collaboration with ICICI Bank, Kotak Mahindra Bank and Innovative Technologies.

Plans for the country’s CBDC were laid out by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) on October 7, 2022. The country’s central bank has identified various factors, including the potential positive and negative impact of the digital rupee on the country. According to the RBI, one of the motivations for creating a CBDC is to reduce the operating costs of managing cash.

It seems that Samsung took into account the problems with the Galaxy S22 line of smartphones and did not repeat them in new devices when it comes to cooling systems.

Well-known insider Ice Universe has published a visual comparison of the approximate sizes of cooling systems in each flagship of the past generation and the new one.

As you can see, all systems have become noticeably larger, and in the younger model, instead of a graphite film, an evaporation chamber has appeared.

Whether this is enough for the new products not to overheat and not throttling so much, tests will show, but the performance, as we can already see, is really good. Recall that today we also saw a comparison of the Galaxy S22 Ultra and S23 Ultra cameras.

Ice Universe was the first to accurately talk about the new trend for smartphones with waterfall screens, about the notch in the iPhone X, about the new design of the iPhone 14 and about Samsung’s 200-megapixel image sensor.
