With Avatar winning the holiday box office by raking in a staggering $75 million here in the states, bringing its worldwide total to – are you sitting down? -- $615 million in only two weeks of release, it’s pretty obvious that 20th Century Fox will find a way to make at least one sequel. James Cameron has previously stated that his original plan all along was for three Avatar films, and that he sold Fox on the pitch by convincing them to put up all that money (the most ever, topping out somewhere near $500 million) to help create this new technology so that when it came time to do the sequels, most of the legwork would already have been put in.
Avatar, James Cameron
I think this movie is one of the best ever. It is so visually stunning, its really just breathtaking and such a good story line. I loved Pandora and think that the sequel could be set there or on one of the moons, i don't think its gonna matter where its set as it will probably be just as good as the first! Not rushing to get a sequel/prequel out is going to be the biggest thing. I hate when they come out with a kickass movie like this one and just because it made hundreds of millions of dollars, they just throw some ideas together to come out with a second one too fast and it isn't very good. I would wait another 10yrs for a sequel, hope we dont have to lol, but 2-3yrs sounds about reasonable since they already know what there doing:)
this has to be one of the most epic and revolutionary movies ever. a prequal would be awesome and so would sequals. But i think it should stay on pandora with jake and Neytiri.
Guys i think this movie rocked!!!!
this was the best ever Hollywood movie... James have to make another AVATAR!
As usual, there will be haters & there will be lovers. But whatever you think about this movie is all on you out there. As for me, I thought it was a beautiful movie. Very well done. I saw the 3-d version twice in a row by staying in the theater lol, & saw it for a third time with a few friends. So yes I'm a very big fan. I was shocked how realistic it felt, loved the backround music, all the effects, the story itself & damn, if you could do that in reality, I know I wouldn't come back to this forsaken planet. Call me a traitor as you will lol. As for the question about the sequel. Should it stay on Pandora or explore other planets. My opinion, I think its too early to leave Pandora. We all just got into the first one! More Pandora plez!
lolz it publshed like 5 times...lolz
OMG!!!!!!!!! I loved this movie i really hope that they make a sequal!! I no that the sequal is gonna be good....if there even is a sequal,but i think that theres gona be 1 bcuz u just cant leave a movie like that....i mean it ended wen he bcame full avatar or wateva u call them....theres gonna be a sequal.. I wish every1 that is crititzizing the director are stupid...i think the movie was asum and im neva gonna change my answer
they should be a sequal after all the first movie was base on his story of being a marine and alien, there should be a sequal also to make his story of how the first one ended, and telling his story from a full alien point of view.
i love this movie
Avatar is like a breath of fresh air that saved my life in watching the same types of movies over again but I think it should of been longer but i guess it the producers way in keeping us in our sits to want more an trust me its working hurry up with this sequel everyone is talking about but hey cant rush perfection in the making no offense this producer is the best so far keep coming make it longer and less violence but more breath taking land views with the characters fighting side by side and an almost tragic moments would make anyone go Oh my god and then take it from there awesome but thats my opinion hit me with another keep me in my seat wanting more and dont take them off Pandora please (no moons):)!. FREAKING BRILLIANT 5*****STARS
first of all, avatar is one of the best movies ive seen in a long time. If there is going to be anouther avatar i would rather see it stay on pandora than drift to other planets. In my opinion, if they were going that explores other planets and moons they might as well just be starting another trilogy. I cant wait for it to come on dvd and hope they start making the sequel this year
I must make it clear when I say "trash the first one" It's the memory of the first one that's destroyed when you make a second film that does not meet its expectation. Nothing can destroy this film unless the second one is crap....James must be in total control of the next one. Then I know that its memory of the first one will be preserved....God bless James Cameron
if they put the time and money as they did in first movie they will do good for the second one if there would be a second.
I have to say that I love this movie so much that I paid to see it 4 times already, twice in 3d. The only other film I saw more then 3 times in theaters was Titanic...James is my hero. As for another avatar, stay in Pandora...anywhere else will be another movie. I love the people and there powerful spiritual impact they had on me. How is he going to do it with out trashing the first one? I don't know but if anyone can do it its James Cameron. If he does explore the other planets, bring it back to Pandora as the main focus of the film and work the characters back in...that is a must. I have to add that this movie stayed with me way after I seen it, in fact it never left I love it...I even bought the dam sound track...Keep on going Jim
Best film ever!!!! Saw it twice.
Will there be and Avatar 2 make it we would like to see a second part
I know movie makers check these forums for the public opinion, so Mr. Cameron if your read this, DEFINETELY make a sequel to this movie. The first was perhaps the best c-g film ever to date, and if done right, the 2nd could be just as amazing. An in depth exploration of the two main characters continuing life on pandora would be a must. And even a little more back story on the navi' people. And at 20 million a kilo for unobtainium, humans have to make a vengful comeback. I think the sequeal would be a little to early for them to leave the planet, i mean millions of people worlwide just fell in love with pandora, it suck to pull us away so quickly, but if it had to be done it have to be done in a way that fans could digest and accept.
I absolutely ADORED this movie! The visual effects were stunning and the story line was incredibly sweet! I have not been to a movie in over 5 years but I will go again and again to see this movie!
I agree with some of the other bloggers -- a prequel would be great. They could really delve into a few lightly-dusted facts: why unobtainium was so valuable (and why the rabid lust to mine it and kill all in their way), the relationship of Sully to his brother, Sully's injury and how he recovered, etc. I must add that Cameron needs to give a nod to Robin Hobb, the author of the Soldier Son trilogy. The storyline had its underpinnings (and some blatant copies) of her brilliantly written novels.
I think it would be a great idea... i loved Avatar even with the hype. Personally I think simplicity is the key dont make it into a star wars movie. People loved it for the lavish scenes and human characters.... show humans return to Pandora and do what they would in real life, try to take over.... Cameron is the man at Sequels, look at Terminator, I hope they dont force it and make some ****** movie and ruin Avatar like they did the Matrix... WE CAN WAIT, MAKE IT A GOOD MOVIE!!!
WOW! I have not been this excited about a movie (even a 2+ hour movie) in a real long time. Preqils are falling to the wayside. A whole movie need not be dedicated to the origins. However, current state of earth, introduction of Avatar to earth, 2 minute description of how earch got into space. Not the past but the present and future should be the focus, as well as rebuilding of their world, intro of new species. So many possibilities.
they should for sure make a sequal, but they have the technology now so it won't take 10 years to make. also i think it would be cool if some other kind of aliens invade their planet.
