So while the actor appeared at the Television Critics Association panel for the FX series What We Do In the Shadows, we had to ask him about working on the Avatar franchise.
In our interview with Clement, the actor clarified which Avatar sequels he’s actually in, including what some of his scenes involved, and the status of any more Flight of the Conchords music. Read More »
Avatar was released all the way back in 2009, and here we are coming to the end of 2019 and we still haven’t seen a shred of footage from any of the sequels that have been in the works for years. They’ve been pushed back over and over again, but every now and then, we at least get to hear that progress is being made on these movies being directed by James Cameron. In fact, the official Avatar account on Twitter has announced that live-action production on the sequels has officially wrapped for 2019, and to celebrate, they’ve provided a new Avatar sequels photo revealing a section of massive sea vessel.

Jemaine Clement is the latest in a long string of actors who have been announced to join the Avatar sequels. But the New Zealand-born actor is seemingly the first all-out comedian to join the sprawling cast, suggesting the multiple sequels to James Cameron‘s 2009 sci-fi mega-hit could be gaining a sense of humor. But that’s down to what kind of character Clement is playing.

We may have just learned the titles to the next four Avatar movies. A new report claims to have learned all four sequel titles, which until now have simply been referred to as Avatar 2, Avatar 3, Avatar 4 and Avatar 5. And maybe it would have been better if it stayed that way.

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.

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.
