As of now, 20th Century Fox hasn’t exactly come right out and said they’re making an Avatar 2. It’s been whispered about from time to time, and James Cameron has made it perfectly clear that he intends to make at least two sequels at some point, but we’re still waiting for some magic studio wizard to float down and present us with an official announcement (and a release date).
James Cameron, Avatar 2, 3-D
Fanboy Fix, 3D
Um, Titanic. Yes, definitely. Granted, girls went in droves to see Leo (I was in middle school at the time), but you can't ignore the nudity as an important factor—even if for nothing more than shock value, though it certainly was a pull. Not for me, I haven't seen it :)
I think you missed my point. I was comparing Avatar to a lot of movies that have come out in the last few years, where nudity, violence, bad language and bathroom humor seem to be the main features. These movies have mostly done very well at the box office. I was pleased to see that you could still make a profitable film without being too vulgar. PS, do you mean 50 top money-makers, or your personal top 50 favorite movies?
That is his genius. I only hope he respects and celebrates the balance how sea-based life forms exist in the Earth’s oceans. I’m not an environmentalist, but I am an aquanaut, and he will discover new life forms when he visits the depths he plans to go to in the Mariana Trench. It would inspiring if in his Avatar sequel he returns to a storyline like “The Abyss” where “we, the land dwellers” are in awe of the new aqua life forms presented in “The Abyss”. In any case, he is still breaking new ground as both an explorer and chronicler of the planet we inhabit. In any case, I hope to best for him on his exploration of a new world on this planet.
Consider this – the Earth is over ¾ oceans, which we have not even explored 10%. In his film “The Abyss”, he took us for a journey to a world we have never seen on this planet. Now, he plans to go where no man has gone before - again, except, again, it is on this planet! Mr. Cameron is the best at pushing the reality envelope to give us what can be imagined or possible, based on the reality of what exist today. This is why he is so determined to go where no one has gone before. To expose the human race to what in not only possible, but actual, but not known because we have not experienced what is real in our own unreal world.
Honestly, if I had the money to commission a sub to see the Mariana Trench I would. I say let him explore. As we saw from Avatar, when Cameron takes his time to explore we get amazing movies!
He is definitely on the right track, that man is a genius... can't wait
He is absolutely on the right track. If mountains can float in mid air, then who knows what we'll find in Pandora under water. I hope this does come to fruition -- and soon!
People need more to engulf the mind in a movie... I say take me away to another world any day!
I just hope nothing goes wrong while he's going down that deep! I'd hate to see anything happen to him and lose one of my favorite directors.
So just don't bother going and stay on the ground and make the sequels already..lol
"Avatar" was great. A groundbreaking cinematic achievement that should be called legendary. James Cameron please. Do NOT make a sequel! The original "Avatar" was amazing but don't push it with a sequel.
He could make a sequel for this movie because Avatar's special effects basically made the movie . Cameron cant ruin Avatar he could only improve it by adding a much better storyline.
I hated the original Avatar but im actually looking forward to a sequel because it gives me hope that he will have a better story, better acting, better dialogue, the visuals were the only thing amazing about the movie. so it will be interesting to see what he does, hopefully the script doesn't take 10 years to make this time, I'll reserve judgement for when it does come out
Avatar was amazing visually, but it also had an intriguing (beginning of a) storyline. There is potential for a continued interesting a developed story. It's my understanding that while Cameron was writing Avatar, he was fully intending on making sequels. So don't write him off thinking that he's only making sequels because it was such a huge success. I've heard that a sequel would continue to follow the characters Jake and Neytiri.
He directed Terminator 2, and that was a pretty good sequel, if you ask me!
He was the director of Terminator 1 and 2... he did Aliens (sequel of Alien) and it's much better than the first, and was regarded by critics as one of the best sequel ever made.
Whatever gets his creative juices flowing is fine with me. Remember, he spent years on the ocean floor and then came back to us with Avatar. Give him some time to play and he will come back with another great movie. He can take years off if he keeps coming back with movies like Avatar and Titanic. Why rush him?
Because he ain't getting any younger
I share my office with an 85 year old attorney who makes it into the office every day. I'm sure James has many good years left in him.
OZ the MOVIE MAN
Great move. I'd love to go down there with Mr. Cameron and pick his brain.
"Welcome to the party, pal."
"I am serious... and don't call me Shirley."
"When am I gonna learn how to punch?"
"These go to eleven."
"Benjamin, have you ever been severely beaten about the face & neck?"
"Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming."
"You're gonna need a bigger boat."
"Jessica's got cable."
