3d movie box office

The weird and wild thing about Walt Disney World’s Pandora: The World of Avatar is that it’s a spoiler for movies that haven’t even been made yet. The theme park land, located at the Animal Kingdom park in Orlando, Florida, is “set” decades after the events of James Cameron‘s un-made Avatar sequels. Peace has come to Pandora and guests step into the roles of tourists who are allowed to visit the alien world, which is slowly recovering after the various wars with mankind.

It’s an incredible framing device for a theme park land, but it definitely makes talking about those sequels a wee-bit strange. And in a new interview, producer Jon Landau talked about the upcoming four (!) Avatar sequels, sharing film-specific details while confirming that the bonds between the films and the theme park land will continue to grow.

james cameron 3d

3D may be rapidly losing popularity and theaters, but James Cameron is still convinced that this technology is the future of cinema. The director helped revive 3D technology with his groundbreaking, lavish 2009 sci-fi film Avatar, but unfortunately, few films has lived up to the potential of 3D since then.

Which is why Cameron is flying the flag for 3D with all four of his Avatar sequels — and possibly with all of his films for the foreseeable future.

Avatar Sequels Compared to The Godfather

James Cameron is currently busy in production on the four planned Avatar sequels that will start hitting theaters in December of 2020. But he had enough spare time to take part in a new documentary series called AMC Visionaries: James Cameron’s Story of Science Fiction, coming to AMC on April 30. Cameron sat down with some press to discuss the series, but of course the conversation turned to progress on the Avatar sequels, and the filmmaker made quite the bold comparison.

Without getting too specific, Cameron calls the forthcoming Avatar sequels a “generational family saga” akin to The Godfather trilogy. Find out what the director had to say below. Read More »

avatar sequels underwater motion capture

Avatar 2 will finally hit movie theaters in 2020, 11 years after the first Avatar was released in 2009 and three years after the great SNL sketch poking fun at Avatar‘s font. The primary reason for the decade-long delay? The technology required to film director James Cameron‘s ambitious vision of a world submerged in water didn’t quite exist yet. So they invented it.

Cameron had been hinting for years about his grand plan to set the Avatar sequels primarily underwater, and shoot them using underwater motion-capture technology — but no one quite believed him until shooting for all four (!) sequels finally went underway this fall. Now that Cameron is in the full swing of production for Avatars 2 and 3, he can give us the scoop on what it’s like to shoot with this newfangled technology. Long story short: it’s really hard.
