Or it will be later today. Right now, James Cameron’s Titanic stands at #1 with a worldwide gross of $1.843 billion. At the moment, Avatar has made $1.841 billion, and is obviously not going anywhere anytime soon. So Cameron has the #1 and #2 highest grossing movies of all time, even though they’ll be switching places shortly — not a bad line to have on your resume. And look, I posted Avatar news without saying anything even slightly negative about it. In fact, here’s a useful video so all you Avatar fans can turn yourselves into Na’vis in a mere 10 seconds! See? I can be fair-minded and informative. Thanks to Paul F. for the video tip. Aaa! AAAAAA! (Via Hollywood Reporter)
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
