I'm more excited for any movie James Cameron could make than the average comic book or Star Wars mediocrity, I can tell you that much.

Can't wait for the mega ultra 4k HDR whatever release

I'm guessing each one will reach minimum 800 million, the first one will be 1 billion Plus easy

He originally said he was going to film at 60fps (unlike Hobbit’s 48fps), but I’m not sure if he’d still do that after what happened with The Hobbit. Of course, a big problem with The Hobbit was it had no preproduction, which means everything was rushed, and the 48fps really highlighted all of the little flaws. These Avatar movies have been pre-produced to hell and back, so if he had been prepping for it I think Cameron could do an amazing high-framerate movie.

Absolutely. Even if they are colossal critical disasters (I doubt it), they will channel Transformers on the level of spectacle.

He's using HFR as a tool. Sceneces where it is appropriate will employ it. Scenes where it makes sets look like sets won't.

So forgettable it affected you deeply enough to write this nonsense.

In case you actually wanted to know, Cameron has been working with a team of four screenwriters for the last few years on four different scripts for the entire project.

And many will claim that is a flop of epic proportions since the original did close to $2.8b on its own.

$1b each would still be a huge success, but you know that is how it will be spun.

Of course, the sequel could do half the worldwide gross of the first one and still be in the top 10 all time grossers.

We now expect Cameron to just curb stomp everything in his path.

Funny enough I watched Avatar last week as I am going to Disney world and was trying to figure out if I should go to the Pandora stuff they built.
Really there is some great visuals in the movie, but it is a bit lacking I will watch them I suppose but it did not come off as timeless.

48 fps is dead. 24 fps is the accepted language of cinema.

3D was dead until Cameron said it wasn't.

GAF is never been known for making great predictions. Say what you want but James Cameron is one of the best directos of all time. Avatar was so long ago that a new one will make a big impact I bet it will break records in China. Will see in 2020.

I have said it multiple times in the box office threads, but I want to see how Cameron responds after Fury Road.
George Miller was an influence on Cameron, and to have Miller come along and shame just about every other action film in existence with Fury Road might have lit a fire under Cameron's ass. I like thinking that Cameron is like, "Oh, you want to go there, huh? I will show you. I will show them all!"

I'm looking forward to them, yeah. I really enjoyed Avatar as an action/adventure movie and for the visuals/worldbuilding. The story of the first film was nothing exceptional but I don't think it's garbage-tier either. Wasn't thrilled by Cameron's recents comments about the villain(s) for the four sequels, but I'm curious to see how it works in execution.

I'm not sure about the next 3. The series could pull a Jurassic Park and decline heavily with each sequel.

Either way, the first sequel will cover most of the cost of the whole series.

The forgotten movie whose sequels would be considered financial failures if they only made the same amount as the highest grossing MCU movies. Incredible.

Is there a single human being alive that would put Avatar in the same category as any of these movies? Y’know, movies that actually had an impact on pop culture?

Yup. His sequel game is exceptionally strong. But this will be the first time we see him go past a second entry.

Every film James Cameron has done has had an impact on pop culture, because James Cameron touches people like no other because James Cameron, is James Cameron.
