With awards rolling in, James Cameron’s Avatar has officially topped the director’s other box office smash Titanic. Current numbers have the sci-fi thriller raking in over a billion dollars internationally.

According to E! Online, Avatar took home $1.29 billion worldwide, surpassing Titanic’s record $1.24 billion. If things keep up, it has the potential to beat out Titantic's worldwide record of $1.848 million.

And to keep the ball rolling, the flick starring Zoe Saldana and Sigourney Weaver could even beat Titantic’s domestic gross of $600.8 million sooner than expected — with an already whopping $552.8 million under its belt, E! Online reports.

If James Cameron’s record was going to be taken over, at least the competition is friendly.
