Not literally, just his love of the sea.
That’s evident in his next movie, Avatar: Path of the Water, a sequel to the 2009 Oscar-winning hit.
Cameron spoke to CNN’s Jason Carroll about how the film, which hits theaters in December, is different from the original.
Cameron said of the sequel, “I think it’s very moving.” will provide.”
“Avatar” re-releases in theaters on Friday, and Cameron said he’s excited.
“There’s an entire generation that could only be seen via streaming,” Cameron said.
Of course, he’s referring to how movie theaters have struggled during the pandemic.
“Avatar” is the highest-grossing film of all time, grossing over $2.8 billion at the box office. Observers in the entertainment industry are watching closely to see if Cameron’s sequel can lure people back to Pandora and back to theaters.
“We’ve spent a lot of money on franchises and saga ideas that span multiple movies, but the movies themselves are very expensive to make. So you can make a lot of money.” “But you may not be profitable. Don’t do anything unprofitable for a long period of time,” Cameron said.
The new film is inspired by the director’s fascination with marine life.
“I love the sea,” he said. “I was passionate about the ocean even before I met it. I learned to scuba dive in rural Canada.”
The actors of ‘Avatar: Path of Water’ had to adapt to acting underwater, and after training, stars Kate Winslet and Sigourney Weaver were able to hold their breath for up to six to seven minutes. He said.
Revisiting the fictional Na’vi in a new story is thrilling for Cameron, who continues to celebrate the first film.
“‘Avatar’ was a unique beast for its time in that it set out to create a world and then populated it,” he said. “We never let the throttle go down the whole time.”
