Avatar: The Way of Water, the eagerly awaited second installment of the James Cameron story that began in 2009, will debut in theaters on December 16. But according to James Cameron if the movie flops he has no plan on making Avatar 4 & 5.
The sequel, Avatar: The Way to Water, will take place more than ten years after the first movie, in the year 2154, with Neytiri and Jake Sully playing parents to Neteyam, Lo’ak, Tuktirey, and Kiri. The main antagonist of the narrative, Colonel Quaritch, played by Stephen Lang, will also make a comeback. He will be brought back to life in a Na’vi Avatar form.
Many anticipate it to do well at the box office as it is the follow-up to the historically most lucrative movie. It is inconceivable to imagine the first movie grossing close to 3 billion. However, a significant box office performance is anticipated.
Cameron, though, voiced doubt about this likelihood. In an interview with Total Film, he stated that he would be prepared to discontinue the series after the third film if the sequels were not commercially successful enough.
The market may indicate that we’re completed in three months or just halfway there. We should wrap things up in the third movie to ensure everything runs smoothly.
We are now in a different world than when I wrote this stuff. There was also the one-two: pandemic and streaming. Or, on the contrary, we will remind people of what it means to go to the movies. This movie does. But the question is: how many people give a f*ck right now?
