‘Avatar 2’ Update: Why James Cameron Is Under Pressure For ‘Avatar 2?’
“Avatar 2” is undeniably putting pressure on director James Cameron. In an exclusive interview, the triple time Oscar-winning director admits that anxiety has clad him around for the second time as he headed for his upcoming fantasy film “Avatar 2,” a successor of the adventurous epic movie “Avatar.”
Cameron’s 2009 directorial venture “Avatar” was a magnificent directorial craft and henceforth the desire from the cine-goers is extremely high for the next installment “Avatar 2,” and surely it needs to continue the triumph of its prequel.
In his interview with Entertainment Weekly, Cameron has spoken out regarding the incredibly daunting challenge. “Obviously, expectations are going to be very high on these films, especially on ‘Avatar 2,’ to make sure it wasn’t just some big fluke the first time.”
Placed in the animated sphere of Pandora, “Avatar,” scored nine Oscar nominations and grossed more than $2.7 billion across the globe and sets a record in the new era of 3-D blockbusters. But the film experienced a tedious journey to bring the scenes on screen. Interestingly, the technical marvel was extremely delayed and its distributor, Twentieth Century Fox, almost backed out on a deal to make the movie at all. It is easy to speculate that this time also the crew is not out of the hardest parts of research and development.
According to Cinema Blend, despite the success, James Cameron’s story of indigenous creatures of an exotic planet battling human colonists failed to impress many. Mainly, the script was under the influence of many sci-fi movies like “Dances with Wolves,” “The Last Samurai” etc. Cameron understands the reasons his original “Avatar” proved divisive, and we can safely assume he has set about to correct the course of the franchise.
Well, post “Avatar 2,” two more sequels of his successful alien environmentalist epic “Avatar” will hit the screen and they are scheduled to be filmed concurrently, and will hit theaters beginning in 2017.
“Avatar 2” is slated to premiere in theaters in the United States on Dec. 25, 2017.
