In Korea, it has collected a total of 13.33 million viewers and is ranked 8th in the box office of all time. Director James Cameron’s ‘Avatar 2’ depicts the ruthless threat to survival, the journey to avoid it, and the battles of a family formed by Jake Sully (Sam Worthington) and Neytiri (Zoe Saldana), who became the Na’vi from humans.
