LOS ANGELES (AP) - James Cameron is king of the world again.

20th Century Fox said Tuesday that the director's sci-fi
spectacle, "Avatar," has passed his shipwreck saga "Titanic" to
become the highest-grossing film worldwide.

As of Monday, "Avatar" had brought in $1.859 billion at the
box office, passing the $1.843 billion worldwide record set by
1997's "Titanic."

"Titanic" remains the highest-grossing film domestically at
$600.8 million.

"Avatar" has been No. 1 at the box office for six straight
weeks with a domestic total of $554.9 million. It shot down "The
Dark Knight" on Saturday to become the second highest-grossing
film domestically.

"Avatar" has also mined $1.3 billion in international ticket
sales, smashing the $1.24 billion mark previously set by
"Titanic."
