'Titanic' new global B.O. champ

“Titanic” is the champion.

Emerging from its 10th weekend in release, James Cameron’s epic period romance has ascended to the top of the list among all-time worldwide box office champs, earning an estimated global gross of $919.8 million by the close of business Monday.

Still in active release, the film appears likely to pull ahead of former champ “Jurassic Park” by at least $200 million when the final tally is rung.

With the exception of “E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial,” the global top 10 comprises pictures that debuted, or by dint of reissues, have arrived on the top-spot scene since “Jurassic Park” stomped in with a mighty $913.1 million B.O. in 1993.

“Titanic” puts Fox in the enviable position of having four films among the top 10 all-time grossers, including three of the top five. It doubles Paramount’s participation to two and is the sole pic in the dominion with split rights distribution. The prior top-grossing joint venture, Universal/Warner Bros.’ “Twister,” is ranked 14th.

Cameron, no stranger to worldwide success, topped his prior best outing “Terminator 2: Judgment Day,” which had a record of $490 million theatrically and is ranked at No. 15 all-time.
