Avatar 2 Movie Details: Into the Abyss

Share:

Avatar 2: The SequelJames Cameron really likes oceans. Have you noticed that? And in Avatar 2, we’re going to see much more of the oceans and less of the jungle, if Mr. Cameron has anything to say about it. And since he can say just about anything about Avatar 2 and do it, we have to believe him. Here’s what he had to say about the Avatar sequel:

“We created a broad canvas for the environment of film. That’s not just on Pandora, but throughout the Alpha Centauri AB system. And we expand out across that system and incorporate more into the story – not necessarily in the second film, but more toward a third film. I’ve already announced this, so I might as well say it:

Part of my focus in the second film is in creating a different environment – a different setting within Pandora. And I’m going to be focusing on the ocean on Pandora, which will be equally rich and diverse and crazy and imaginative, but it just won’t be a rain forest. I’m not saying we won’t see what we’ve already seen; we’ll see more of that as well.”

As well, Cameron also confirmed recent rumors that Avatar will be making it’s way back into theaters this summer with extra footage.

“We’re working on finishing an additional six minutes of the film — which includes a lot of Weta work — for a theatrical re-release in August. We were sold out of our Imax performances right up to the moment until they were contractually obligated to switch to Alice in Wonderland, so we know we left money on the table there. And the 3-D really helped Avatar right up until the moment that it hurt it. And it hurt it at the moment Alice and then How to Train Your Dragon and Clash of the Titans came in and sucked up all the 3-D screens. We went from declining 8% a week to declining 50%. Clearly, it wasn’t market forces directly; it was the availability of theaters. So we’re going to wait until there’s a time to come back in, inject the new footage into the mix and see if we can interest people in the Avatar experience in theaters.”

    A theatrical re-release for six more minutes? That’s crazy. It’s neat that he’s talking more about the Avatar universe though, that gets me really hyped.

    Off-topic: I was thinking that you should make a lists section. Since the website is getting more user-friendly, it’d be a fun thing to keep up with. For instance, like once a week your top 10 comedies of all time or action movies and etc. You should also have an all-time favorites list with at least 20 movies on it (or 100). Maybe even users can post their lists themselves. I’d be psyched Erik!

    If the second movie keeps up with the pace and graphics of the first movie and incoprates more of Pandora than I feel it will bring even more people to the movie
