DeadLine: With this move, Twentieth Century Fox effectively ties up James Cameron through December 2015, apparently putting a hold on Sony Pictures' hopes for the director to helm a fast-tracked Cleopatra starring Angelina Jolie in 2012.
Talk about milking it, i personally din't enjoyed Avatar at all, sure it was gorgeous to look at but that was it, nothing more than that, i was hoping that the story would be engaging but it was one of the simplest plot ever. I hope 2 & 3 are much better than the first one.
Well I'm excited. I know there's a lot of Avatar hate on this site, but I loved it. I'm glad that there's confirmation that this is what Cameron will do next, since that matter was kind of in the air.
Wonder what two movies he will rip off for these lol.
Wow, was expecting him to follow the 3D gimmick and somehow make another movie break money records, but this. I dont like Cameron and probably won't be seeing these just so he changes his movie style.
Why ruin a perfect movie by giving it sequels...
It wasn't perfect and was far from it. Why are they doing it? Purely for money, and unlike WB with Inception they have no respect for the property and don't mind ruining it in the honor of making money.
The thing is... who is going to watch it when it's expected to be bad
None of the "casual audience" is thinking it will be bad. In-fact they probably all wet their pants getting excited for another 3 hour visual feast with no particularly good story....While people like me could care less.
Too bad... while I think the first movie was good, I still don't believe a sequel would make any money for the studio
You have no idea how the industry works then....Even I, the person that bashes this film on a daily basis, knows for a fact Avatar 2 will make bank. If 3 is released shortly after it will be just as big. He could film a turd in a toilet for 2 hours and still make millions with a name like Avatar.
