James Cameron, who directed Avatar: The Way of Water, offers suggestions to moviegoers on when to take a break throughout the 192-minute duration of the impending sequel.
James Cameron, the director of the epic sci-fi picture Avatar: The Way of Water, has offered his opinion on how moviegoers should handle restroom breaks.
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Cameron talked about how to handle the 192-minute running duration of Avatar: The Way of Water. He stated, “[Viewers should] use the restroom whenever they want.” “When people return to watch it again, they can see the scene they missed.”
The Award-winning Academy director noted that once Disney acquired 20th Century Fox (and the Avatar franchise with it) in 2019, he was open with the media giant regarding the length of the Avatar sequel. “Because that’s what we said we’d do, I told Disney, “You got this from a bunch of men at Fox who agreed to a three-hour movie.” We will engage in the magnificent game, “Cameron thought back.
Avatar: The Way of Water’s length presents obvious logistical difficulties, but as star Zoe Saldana noted in a recent interview, the film may also dehydrate viewers. Saldaa, who plays Neytiri again, recently discussed her emotional reaction to witnessing The Way of Water, claiming that she cried nonstop during the Avatar prequel.
The actress kept quiet about what caused her to cry during the movie and avoided discussing the overall plot in detail. I can offer you a tiny hint: it has to do with water. Saldaa laughed.
The large budget of Avatar: The Way of Water
Avatar: The Way of Water may not have just moved Saldaa to tears, either. The eagerly awaited blockbuster reportedly had a staggering product budget of $350-400 million, making it one of the most costly films ever made. The sequel will need to be among the top three or four highest-grossing movies of all time merely to break even, according to James Cameron, who previously called Avatar: The Way of Water “the worst business case in cinematic history.”
The filmmaker added that if Avatar: The Way of Water doesn’t do well enough financially, Avatar 4 and 5 may be put on hold. In this case, the series would be changed to become a trilogy. In three months, the market “may be telling us we’re done,” he warned. If it’s unsuccessful, we might be “semi-done,” meaning, “Okay, let’s finish the story within movie three and not go on eternally.”
Can the film Avatar: The Way of Water gross $1 billion worldwide?
Only one film has surpassed the $1 billion mark so far this year, and that was the aberration that was Top Gun: Maverick. Avatar: The Way of Water will probably complete the trinity within the next few months, and it appears that Black Panther: Wakanda Forever will likely join it by the end of its run.
The first Avatar film introduced a 3D-rendered world unlike anything that had ever been shown on screen before, which was something special at the time. Although the Avatar sequel is undeniably stunning, the 3D movie fad has passed, and it’s unlikely that its visuals will hold audiences’ attention as they did 13 years ago.
To find out what all the fuss was about, many people went to watch Avatar in theatres. Avatar: The Way of Water may become a smash or a mega-hit depending on how many viewers are still interested in where the tale is going.
The 192-minute length of Avatar: The Way of Water will test even the most muscular bladders. But James Cameron says it doesn’t matter if people go to the bathroom during a movie because they can watch it again to see what they missed.
