avatar sequels high frame rate

The marketing of Ang Lee’s Gemini Man leaned heavily on talking up the high frame-rate technology on display in the sci-fi action flick. But very few theaters were able to display the film the way Lee shot it, and viewers who were able to watch a high frame rate projection came away unimpressed. Whenever HFR was mentioned in relation to Lee’s film, James Cameron‘s Avatar sequels were brought up, because it was rumored that Cameron would be shooting these films in a similar manner. Not so, says Cameron. Sort of. During a recent interview, Cameron said that he would be using high frame rate footage “sparingly” during production but seemed to indicate that the finished films won’t be screened in that format.

James Cameron reaction

Director James Cameron held the top spot on the box office charts for more than twenty years, first with 1997’s Titanic and then overtaking his own record with 2009’s Avatar.

Turns out he’s OK with it, largely because he views it as a good sign for the possibilities of Avatar 2. Read some of the highlights from this new James Cameron reaction below.

It looks like Vin Diesel just blue himself. Maybe. The Fast and Furious actor may have jumped the gun by showing himself on the set of the Avatar sequels with director James Cameron, where the pair of them coyly suggested that Diesel may be joining the cast of the highly anticipated sci-fi films.

avatar sequels cast edie falco

The cast of the Avatar sequels just got a major upgrade. Edie Falco, of The Sopranos and Nurse Jackie fame, will head to Pandora as new character General Ardmore. Falco is a phenomenal actress, and her presence in James Cameron‘s CGI-enhanced world is surely welcomed. It’s not clear which of the sequels Falco will be appearing in – both Avatar 2 and Avatar 3 have wrapped filming with the main cast, and while Avatar 4 and Avatar 5 are both greenlit, neither have begun filming yet, as Cameron and company are waiting to see if 2 and 3 will make a splash at the box office.
