So for those of you who don't know, the KING OF THE WORLD (aka, James Cameron) is about to unleash upon us a multitude of Avatar movies, starting with ....

Avatar: The Way of Water (Avatar 2), in Theaters everywhere on December 16, 2022.

It already had its premiere, and reviews are GOOD. VERY VERY GOOD.

That said ... premiere reviews are almost universally very good. Here's what we do know-

1. It's the sequel to Avatar, the highest grossing film of all time (non-inflation adjusted, world-wide gross).

2. It's three hours and twelve minutes.

3. It's the sequel to Avatar, the second-highest grossing film of all time, inflation adjusted. As for the highest? Frankly, my dear EnWorld reader, I don't give a darn.

4. It's three hours and twelve minutes.

5. Trailer? TRAILER!


6. It's three hours and twelve minutes.

7. There are blue people.

8. It's three hours and twelve minutes.

9. You can (and probably should) see it in IMAX 3D.

10. Apparently, James Cameron has spent, like, a BILLION DOLLARS on these films. Give or take a few hundred million.

11. It's THREE HOURS and TWELVE MINUTES.

12. They changed the best thing about Avatar .... THE FONT.


So, are you going to be seeing Avatar? Are you excited? Is this your favorite Blue Person entertainment (non Smurf, non percussion division)? A poll is placed for your entertainment!

There's no option for maybe! I have some interest, but I'm not sure if it will be enough for us to go to the theater and spend $100 on. If the reviews remain really good after release, we'll probably go.

For a minute there the headline had me thinking Airbender and my son would love that. I should probably see the OG Avatar at some point, but have never mustered the interest. Is that bad for me?

Anyway, how long until the CGI is good enough to do season 3 of Dark Angel with none of the actual original (and now much older) actors?

I voted "NO" but I wanted to add some nuance: I am not interested in the Avatar franchise, and I don't go to theaters because of the pandemic.

I've preordered tickets for IMAX 3D. I'm relatively alone in my friend group in that I found Avatar to be an absolutely transcendent experience (when seen in IMAX 3D, which is quite frankly required to really get what the movie is doing), and I'm crazy excited for the sequels.

Yeah, same for me, with a side order of "wouldn't have willingly sat through a 3-hour movie in a cinema even before the pandemic".

Though the first one was colorful and a fun spectacle, the motivations of the characters and the straightforward, predictable plot just didn't grab me. I think I would have enjoyed it more as an open world video game than a movie. I'll be skipping the second one unless reviews convince me otherwise.

I think the world has moved past special effects being the primary draw for a film. If it's not building on a previous IP that the audience really cares about, I can't see it being as big of a hit as the original was.
Couple this with an uptick in flu, COVID's return, etc, and I think this might be a historic box office bomb.
That said, I hope I'm proven wrong. I hope people enjoy it. I don't want to see a financial fallout in the film industry and the ripples a bomb of this magnitude could produce.

I'm interested. I am trying to organize a viewing with some friends; I have recruited two so far. In Italy it is coming out on the 14th.
 

Yes, but without the capitals and the exclaimation mark. Though I am not that fond of the strong water theme the trailer suggests. The Avatar didn't seem to be aquatic before, it feels a bit weird. But I guess it could be another impressive artistic creation of an alien worldscape, and the previous movie basically just created a serviceable even if unoriginal plot as vehicle for a wonderful alien worldscape, so maybe it works out. But I guess I'll read some reviews first. These days in visual action spectacles you're kinda lucky if the story doesn't have holes large enough for blue whales, and if it's too dumb, all the visuals in the world can't save it, IMO.

I still haven't seen Avatar, have no real interest in seeing it, and so have no plans to see the sequel. Which is weird because I like Cameron. I still havent' seen Titanic.

I voted "NO!", but really just wanted to vote "nah."
Tbh, the only thing I remember about the first one was that it wasn't especially memorable. I'll get around to watching it one day, just not stoked about seeing it in a theater.

Three hours and twelve minutes of a franchise I don't care about?! Hell no! I might have mustered curiosity for like a two hours movie but Jimmy can shove off with his British TV show length movie.
 

No, I didn't see the first Avatar in theaters and won't see the second. I will, however, watch it when it comes to streaming on a service I already subscribe to, or barring that, on disc through Netflix.

I saw the first on TV, it was enough. I don't think a sequel will make me want to go to the theater to see it before it's available from the comfort of my own home. So it's not a resouding "NO!" but a "meh". I could join a group of friend absolutely intent on seeing it.

Also, I predict we'll get 4 films, the next one being the Road of Fire and the Path of Earth.

So, I'm not seeking out this film. If my friends put together a social engagement around seeing it, then I am on board. Otherwise, I'll wait until it hits a streaming service.

I didnt see the original in the theater, I saw it on stream. I didnt think much of it. I was told it was because I didnt see it in 3D. So, I suppose if had the chance I could see the sequel in the theater for the best experience of it. Though, its been so many years I'm just over it.
