Cameron talks Avatar 4 ?

10 Sep 2012

In this MTV interview James Cameron is not only letting everyone know that there is a 2 and 3 but a 4th installment of Avatar that would be a prequel to the first film. It would cover what went wrong with the humans and the locals. Avatar 2 for your info will be released sometime in 2015 but I am assuming since the script of 2 and 3 is being written as one that the filming will also be shot back to back much like the last Harry Potter film was. Which means the release date for the 3rd installment will be more closer to a year or earlier later. That is assuming they shoot it back to back.

Disney to get Avatar Land

20 Mar 2012


Disney in conjunction with James Cameron and Fox Filmed Entertainment co-chairs and co-CEOs Jim Gianopulos and Thomas Rothman have settled on bringing to life a section in Disney's Animal Kingdom called Avatar Land which is based off the hit movie Avatar. It will have all the features you seen in the movie plus some added bonuses. This with out a doubt is a win win for Fox and Disney. Animal Kingdom lacks attractions and since the film was mainly an environmental message wrapped up in a Sci Fi feature film it will fit perfectly into that theme park. Construction of the park will begin in 2013 and probably will take about a year to complete . A conservative estimation has it it opening in 2014 or 15 but I seen how they work in Disney and they are pretty efficient in their design and building. ANd I will bet it is going to be one of those must do's for sci fi'ers around the Orlando are. Anyway watch the video below for the announcement.

Avatar breaks Blu Ray record and Cameron is talking sequel

23 Apr 2010

Sci Fi Wire has  an inside update on Cameron's and Foxes opinion on an Avatar sequel .

We've all been wondering what James Cameron has in store for a sequel to the biggest movie of all time, Avatar, which would explore the oceans of Pandora, and now he's saying that he's already got the tools he needs to create an undersea version of the fantastical planet.

A second Avatar movie is still speculative, and 20th Century Fox has not yet made deals with Cameron or the actors for a sequel. But Fox Film Entertainment co-chairman and chief executive officer Tom Rothman said that he is confident that everything will work out.

"The truth is that just like I didn't worry about the deal for the movie, I don't worry about the deal for the sequel," Rothman said in a separate interview. "When Jim is ready to do it, we at Fox will be ready to do it with him."

Also in the blue world of Pandora is that Avatar has broken the 1st day Blu Ray sales surpassing the Dark Knight according to the Hollywood Reporter .

Avatar and District 9 nominated but no Star Trek

02 Feb 2010

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has released its nominations for the 82nd Annual Academy Awards that will be held on Sunday, March 7, 2010 . As expected Avatar was chosen in the best film category. What I did not expect and even stated it in previous post was District 9. I was sure that Star Trek would of been in there and District 9 would of been nominated as an independent. Then again the Academy has its own way of choosing and there are times and this is one of them that we sit there and scratch our heads and say - What were you thinking ?  Not that D9 did not deserve it but I thought and so did many others that Star Trek was the better of the 2 films. Well what do I know. Right.

Out of that list I can not see any other film other then Avatar winning this award, Avatar which  has broken all sorts of records and has crossed a cultural divide to become a success not only domestically but world wide. Not too many films can brag about that. Even if the judges of the awards look at sci fi films as a box office filler that are not worthy of any consideration for the top honors. Avatars innovative approach with 3D coupled with its success should be the obvious choice. That is unless the Oscars want to make a statement of some kind then one of the more artsy ones will get it.

The Avatar Effect

26 Jan 2010

Most of this article is opinion based

Avatar is now number 1 capsizing the Titanic and taking the honors of the best movie of all times for itself. The Los Angeles Times ( among many others ) reported that Avatar had racked up $1.85 billion in worldwide ticket sales, edging past "Titanic's" $1.84 billion. Domestically it fell short of the Titanic’s sales $554.9 million vs $600.7 million for Titanic. But overseas the movie was king of the world by pulling $1.30 billion to compared to $1.24 billion.

So what is it with this film that makes it a must see ? Why did it cross so many lines of cultures and come across with the same results ? Why did it cause controversy ? I have some theories on all of that.
