3D blockbuster Avatar has set a record for the fastest movie to make $1 billion at cinemas worldwide.
James Cameron’s sci-fi flick took the cash in just 17 days with $350 million taken in the US alone since its release.
Avatar is already the fourth biggest film of all time and could overtake number one placed flick Titanic- which was also directed by Cameron- later this month.
Over New Years weekend in the US the movie grossed $68.3m- comfortably topping the box office chart.
Sherlock Holmes took $38.4m over the three days while the new Alvin and the Chipmunks movie took over $36 million.
