Secret behind Avatar 2 water sense revealed

Avatar' sequel takes in $400 million worldwide in its first weekend at the box office

"We've been punched twice: the pandemic and streaming," James Cameron told Total Film magazine. Action and reaction: if he was able to save cinema (or a certain kind of cinema) once, why not twice? Cameron is not hiding: "Maybe we'll be able to remind people what it means to go to the cinema.

In his endeavor, the director has relied on two bullets: his professional experience and his favorite hobby. Not everyone can count their sequels by hits. The Cameron Formula for pulling it off? "The key to a sequel is to surprise in a way that isn't off-putting. Reconnect with the familiar that's fun and that caused the first installment to be a hit, but do it in a way that's unexpected, or that takes you somewhere unexpected."

THIS COULD OVERSHADOW THE SUCCESS OF HIS MOVIE. JAMES CAMERON SUFFERS FROM THE ANGER OF HIS FANS.

FOR THIS REASON, LEONARDO DICAPRIO WAS ABOUT TO LOSE THE ROLE OF HIS LIFE

What he did with Aliens: The Return (1986), with that xenoform Queen and her thousand offspring, each one more bastard, and Terminator 2: The Last Judgment (1991), liquefying the flesh and metal of the T-1000 in a reconsideration of the human body that still endures. And then there's water, blessed in his case, which has obsessed him since he was a child growing up in his native Canada near Niagara Falls. A monomania that has given us Piranha II: Vampires of the Sea, Abyss, Titanic... If you add both obsessions together, the plot of Avatar: The Meaning of Water, and not just its title, is better understood.

 

The sequel recovers the protagonist couple. 

 

Neytiri (Zoe Saldaña) and Jake (Sam Worthington), thirteen years after what was narrated in the first installment. The heroes have not wasted time: love has borne fruit in the form of three offspring, Neteyem, Lo'ak, and Tuk. As Pandora is an idealized reflection of Cameron's universe, the Sullys embody the new forms of family and adopt two other creatures, Spider and Kiri.
