If theaters tank this movie is dead in the water. The first only mattered because of the spectacle that ushered in that annoying 3D craze. Beyond that Avatar is a soulless husk of a franchise. As the Naavi say, "Fuck off, Cameron."

Why you so angry tho

Can't speak for that poster. But my take is, if you're gonna go from making movies like Aliens, Terminator, and the Abyss to making gay Pocahontas knockoffs THEN AT LEAST ACTUALLY MAKE THE GAY POCAHONTAS KNOCKOFFS. James Cameron is the biggest disappointment in modern cinema. 2 years from the time I am making this post, AVATAR 2 WILL STILL NOT BE RELEASED. THATS A FUCKING JOKE.

You can speak for me, apparently.

This movie will make 300-400 million worldwide. Maybe 500 mil if you include 3D.
That’s if it even gets made. Sometimes you just gotta know when to retire.

Cameron, this will be your “Attack of the Clones”. Except no one will rewatch it because the IP is boring.

at this point i'm like whatever man.

avatar gets shit on but i know i'm still gonna go see it day 1 just because it's James MF Cameron. Sure it might have a shit story but it'll be totally worth it. He goes the full length and pushes technology. Avatar was "shit" but it kick started an era of 3D movies. Studios started releasing 3D movies in cinema and TV manufacturers started making 3D TVs! Name another movie that convinced major movie publishers, cinemas, and tv manufacturers to create a whole line of new products. 3D TV ultimately failed but the fact it happened was impressive enough.

Also, Let me remind you he built the freaking Titanic for a movie. I'm not sure if it was 1:1 scale and it sure as hell wasn't a full replica and couldn't sail but it's still impressive the length he went to:



i mean you don't build something like THAT just for a movie unless you're James fucking Cameron. and of course Avatar + Titanic are sitting at #2 and #3 on the all time worldwide life time grosses on Box Office Mojo (#5 + #15 if you want to account of inflation)

It was 9/10th scale IIRC which, you know... why not just go all the way?

I'm not sure that jump starting the era of 3D movies, an era that no longer exists, is a great thing, but yea, I always want to see what the guy is going to do next.
