    Computer-generated imagery blockbuster "Avatar: The Way of Water" is sweeping the box office in Korea, surpassing 2.68 million in the five days since its release last week. 
    Over the weekend alone the sequel to James Cameron's 2009 movie drew 1.61 million moviegoers here. 
    Critically mauled as an overlong damp squib, the three-hour film about blue aliens on a watery planet nonetheless wows audiences with its state-of-the-art underwater technology and breathtaking 3D effects. 
    Tickets sold out at IMAX, 4DX, Super Plex and Dolby Cinema theaters that offer the best experience of the special effects.
