SeaQuest!

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.

He obv has a good team of imaginers / visual artists in his employ, and all the money in the world to play with. At the very least this movie should rise to the level of "pretty neat stuff to gawk at".

i actually saw and enjoyed Av 2x (3-D IMAX) and was surprised that it held up well the 2nd time. i know the general consensus on ilx was hoping for it to fail but yo dudes, save that bile for your wes anderson criterion boxset or whatever.

i neither loved nor hated Avatar, but imo there's nowhere to go but up w/ any sequels, think it'll be pretty easy for them to make at least a slightly better movie with the same template/visual style

Spiney G. Porcupinegarden (some dude), Wednesday, 21 April 2010 03:51 (twelve years ago) link

i mean it's such a boring readymade sci-fi 'world' as one movie that they can only improve on it by being forced to fill it with more details and stories and make it more lived-in.

Spiney G. Porcupinegarden (some dude), Wednesday, 21 April 2010 03:53 (twelve years ago) link

I'd rather watch Stan Helsing 2

Doesn't matter if it's good or not it will make a zillion dollars anyways.

have been genuinely surprised/impressed with Cameron's recent capacity for putting his time/money where his mouth is re: the politics underpinning the movie

Loved it, fuck a script there's such a thing as world-building carrying the day. On board for more.

Really hoping the 2nd + 3rd movies aren't entirely based on the big bad US military coming back for more & the Avatarians fighting them again and again, yet succeeding cos Jake is 'the chosen one' in some prophecy or something.

Adam Bruneau, Wednesday, 21 April 2010 17:03 (twelve years ago) link

i could do without ANY military stuff in the next few, because it was boring and dumb.

akm, Wednesday, 21 April 2010 18:16 (twelve years ago) link

Yeah it would be so much better if the conflicts were like creature group v. creature group. Or maybe 'left over tech from human incursion causes conflicts between pandora beasts'.

“Right now we are planning our 3-D tour movie and James Cameron is directing it,” will.i.am tells VIBE. “We have the biggest director because we are the biggest group on the planet. The Peas are filming it in South America. People will be able to see us in the theater with the 3-D glasses and everything."

"There will be a storyline that Cameron came up with, which will be dope," the BEP frontman continues. "It’s a full-length film and it's based around our tour activities. We’ve toured from America and Europe, to the Middle East, South America, Asia and Africa. It’s not like we go, 'Yo, we are international, you know what I’m saying? London and Paris!' Nah, that’s just two cities. We want to go across the planet.”

“I can tell you one thing about them,” Cameron laughs when Empire nonchalantly enquiries about storylines. “They’re gonna be bitchin’. You will shit yourself with your mouth wide open.”

There's gonna be three sequels for Avatar?! Seriously?

I mean, I liked it an all, but it didn't exactly scream "four-part movie series", did it?

Tuomas, Thursday, 27 November 2014 08:14 (eight years ago) link

Well, something has to support the Disney park in progress.

Cameron: You should make a Disney park based on "Avatar!"
Disney: What's "Avatar?"
Cameron: You know, the movie with the blue people?
Disney: "The Smurfs?"
Cameron: No, the other one. It made a billion dollars!
Disney: So did "Frozen." I think we'll make a "Frozen" park.
Cameron: Wait, wait! Does "Frozen" have ... a sequel?
Disney: Of course it does. We have at least one in the pipes, maybe two.
Cameron: Well, what f I told you "Avatar" had ... [looks at accountants and lawyers, who shake their heads cautiously) three sequels? [accountant slaps head]
Disney: Well, Jim, I would say that's starting to sound like some Disney numbers. Does it have a princess?
Cameron: It does!
Disney: We're in. Someone go tell Elsa the bad news that she's going to Epcot's Norway pavillion. Jim and I have to get to work spending some blue money.

Imagine they're all blue, or most of them are.

“We never had this youthful element before, and that brings a different kind of energy to the film,” he says. “They represent the future generation of Pandora and play a very significant role — not just in this movie but throughout all the movies.”

I'd like to think that picture was taken of focus group kids after they got their own "first look" and were all, eh.

They mostly come in blue. Mostly.

I've seen the Babylon trailer enough times over the past month that they sure are trying for that. Then again, it's about the same amount of times I saw a trailer for that smash hit Amsterdam.

took me a second to remember that Babylon was not the subtitle of the new Avatar.

I feel in his heart of hearts Cameron would have preferred to just make an IMAX movie of people scuba diving, but he probably also thinks millions of people around the planet have been wondering what's up the magical world of Avatar and its colorful characters.

“We’re in a different world now than we were when I wrote this stuff, even,” Cameron continues. “It’s the one-two punch—the pandemic and streaming. Or, conversely, maybe we’ll remind people what going to the theatre is all about. This film definitely does that. The question is: How many people give a shit now?”
