That's right: blue ass to blue ass. To blue ass.
AVATAR 2, 3 & 4: BACK TO BACK TO BACK
While we are taking away money, someone take away George Lucas's as well. Thanks.
Wait, how many billions of dollars did Avatar make? It ain't my thing either, but there's no denying Cameron gets asses in seats.

depends, do the fish here have 6 pelvic fins and a anal fin you can implant your braid in to?
What's broken in me? I just read that James Cameron will film three huge budget sci-fi movies and I barely have the interest to raise an eyebrow and shrug?
I am dissapointed at such a state of affairs. Very dissapointed.
Well it looks like these films will be last Cameron ever makes fiction wise.
But that's okay, we still have Teminator, Aliens, The Abyss and T2. That's enough genre greatness for me from one individual.
Just to keep it at a gossip level.
That's a fucking mint pad he has :)
While I'm disappointed he won't be tackling Battle Angel Alita, I don't see this as a negative necessarily. He's stated that A2 will focus on Pandora's oceans, and that puts Cameron right in his element, so to speak. Cameron, with unlimited budget and creative freedom, taking another stab at Abyss level spectacle? Count me in. Perhaps he'll use this unique creative opportunity, unparalleled story telling freedom, to bring us a trilogy that no studio would have otherwise greenlit. Perhaps AVATAR 2+3 will really expand the scope and blow our minds.
With that said, my one point of reservation comes with the fact that at an intuitive level I really don't care for the design of the Na'vi. They're ugly and absurd looking. It's what's killed Avatar's rewatchability for me. Hopefully the sequels will focus on other races or planets.

I only need one Avatar as well, solely to remind me not to plop down cash for a second, God forbid a third and fucking fourth.
Oh come on, you guys are acting like Avatar was like Episode I bad. It was a decent movie, and if he wants to stay in the Avatar universe, he's earned it. At the very least, it will be an entertaining 150 minutes, that you may or not remember 3 days later.
Hey, I had a decent sandwich at ARBY'S once. That doesn't mean I got a hankering for a shitload more. It did it's job on a dull Saturday afternoon & I was satisfied.
I've moved on. Why can't ARBY'S?
...after which he'll finally getting around to tackling Spider-man
I don't believe he'll do it either, but he did clarify the "nothing but Avatar" statement about a week later...stating that Battle Angel is still in the cards and he can't see himself not directing it and only producing.
I hope that's the case as it seemed interesting far more so than Avatar 4. Jeez is that what we're relegated to something as creatively devoid as that. That's why I like Nolan tell a story that needs to be told and end it. Thank god we wont see Inception 5: Cobb in Space. Movies are almost getting as bad as comics in terms of not knowing when to end a story.
Avatar 4 should exist as a video game, much like any possible Inception follow-up will. Film his two originally intended sequels back-to-back and let the world explore the world further in gaming if they want to.
I can agree with that, a trilogy is far less annoying, it's just Avatar barely had plot enough for one movie and anyway was enjoyable fluff as a standalone film, so I can see it degrade in a Matrix Trilogy type of way. But 4 movies there is no way it could be good and just seems a waste of time. Plus if Avatar 2 is about the seas of Pandora what will the rest be? Anyway it seems like a waste of time and should just make Battle Angel ASAP! why not make the sequels as you said into video games, the movie was basically like an old Sega CD game, anyhow.
The original idea right after the first came out that Cameron would write the TWO sequels (and a prequel novel) and only produce them, allowing someone else to direct while he moved on to Battle Angel. So much for that!
I can't possibly imagine Cameron finding anything more of interest to say about Pandora. Avatar should have been a movie made for me. I may be one of the biggest marks for a scifi film there is. An Evil corporate entity out in space? check. Really cool military space hardware? check. visually stunning alien planet? check. A battle for the fate of a world/species? check. This should have been a slam dunk. Instead, half way through I was bored out of my skull, and the 3D just gave me motion sickness.
Somehow I managed to be more fascinated by two hours of Sam Rockwell arguing with himself on the Moon. Give me a follow up to that show.
I've only seen about 2/3's of the original (kept dozing off), but do they ever give a reason why the humans won't just return and bomb the ever of loving shit out of the planet, then mine what's left?
