Thank God it won’t take 15 years to make like the first one!
And although four years may seem like a long time, James Cameron feels confident in his plans for the sci-fi trilogy.
"Right now, the thinking is that [films] two and three are going to be done together. They’ll be released separately, probably a year apart or maybe even two, but they’ll be done in a bunch.”
He hopes that his strategy will help prevent the failure that curses many big Hollywood sequels.
"I’m mapping out the story line right now, so there’s a proper arc that plays out over two films, but buttons nicely at the end of two, so you don’t get this horrible second-act Matrix feeling - you know: 'I’ve just sat through a three-hour movie and fuck all [that] happened at the end!'”
But don’t put your blue Avatar masks in the closet yet (we know you have them; no need to be shy)! Avatar is being re-released for a limited run on Friday with 9 extra minutes of never-before-seen footage!
Put on your 3D glasses and prepare to be blown away!
