The sequel was “damn expensive”, says director James Cameron. “It has to be one of the highest grossing films of all time”.
The first cinema tickets have released and a final trailer for this winter’s (no, this year’s) blockbuster, “Avatar: The Way of Water” have released.
James Cameron’s sequel to the mega-hit ‘Avatar’ looks set to once again stun audiences with stunning visual effects and push the boundaries of the wonders of modern film technology. But the question is whether the audience success is as given as last time? Do we even remember what happened in the first “Avatar”?
Despite the high ticket cost (up to $30) and the long running time (3 hours 12 minutes), both Disney and James Cameron hope that the audience will make a pilgrimage to the nearest cinema, as they did 13 years ago. The film was “damn expensive” to shoot, says the director to GQ:
"It’s a really lousy business model. Because we have to become one of the 3-4 highest grossing films in history. That is the goal, then we reach break-even.
