TORONTO -- James Cameron's "Avatar" has surpassed $100 million in boxoffice at Imax theaters overseas, the giant screen exhibitor announced Thursday.

Toronto-based Imax said the international $100 million milestone was reached on 85 screens outside of North America, bringing the global Imax per-screen average to around $1.2 million.

The international sales combined with another $128 million in North American boxoffice to date has taken the worldwide sales of the Twentieth Century Fox 3D epic for Imax, since December, to $228 million.
