James Cameron Plans To Make Avatar Movie Reach The Top Spot Again
Like all great things that come to an end, so did Avatar movie’s decade long superiority in the box office. The king of movies fell at the hands of Marvel’s Avengers: Endgame as the highest-grossing movie of all-time. The new movie gained revenue of $2.79 million, surpassing that of James Cameron’s giant blue alien movie. Although Cameron is pretty cool about this development, we believe he is working to regain the throne. Before the Avatar 2 release date, something else is going to come.
Avatar Movie To Get A Re-Release!
Cinemablend is talking about how James Cameron is going to do this. Recently, the Avatar movie celebrated its tenth anniversary of the movie release. Cameron believes that Avatar can regain its place in the throne as the greatest movie with a simple re-release. This is part of a bigger plan to rekindle the excitement in the global audience for the upcoming Avatar 2.
Release date set to December 17, 2021, James Cameron said to USA Today “I think it’s a certainty,” while talking about restoring to the top position. However, Cameron took a cooler approach to the competition.
James Cameron said he “really enjoyed” the Marvel movie, in fact, admiring the studio as a whole. He thinks that the fact that so many people showed up to watch the movie is good for cinema as well. This is because such a large crowd can come even for his movie too. He said:
“I don’t want to sound snarky after I took the high road but, they beat us by one-quarter of a percent. I did the math in my head while driving in this morning.”
The filmmaker also said that this kind of difference is something which accountants call “a rounding error”. He is now confident that a simple rerelease of Avatar movie will not only help take back the top spot in the box office but, it will pave a path for Avatar 2. This will help the audience remember the glory of Oscar-winning cinematography and incredible special effects.
On the other hand, Cameron’s collaborator Jon Landau says that Disney would strictly take it as a re-release, rather than anything else. Disney currently owns the Avatar franchise.
