Avatar director James Cameron has said that watching the 2009 movie at home via streaming or Blu-ray does not count as having seen the movie.it need Cameron said in an interview to see it in theaters New York Times.
“Young moviegoers never had the chance to see it in theaters. Even though they thought they might have seen the movie, they really hadn’t,” he said. “Avatar” will be re-released in theaters on Friday, September 23 in a remastered state. Cameron said he was “surprised” by how well the film performed and “how gorgeous it is in its remastered state”.
Avatar was available for streaming on Disney Plus until Disney removed it without warning this year, presumably to encourage people to see Avatar back in theaters.
“It was really nice to watch it in a fully remastered state with my kids a few weeks ago because they’d only seen it on streaming or on Blu-ray,” Cameron said. “‘Oh yeah, that’s dad That movie that was made that year.’ The first time they saw it in 3D with good lighting levels and projection levels. They were kind of like, ‘Oh. All right. now I understand. “Hopefully that will be the reaction of the general audience.”
Avatar is highest grossing movie of all time, which brought in $2.847 billion at the box office. Cameron also had another high-quality film, Titanic ($2.2 billion; third all-time, not accounting for inflation), making him one of the most commercially successful directors in film history.
The Avatar sequel, The Way of the Water, brings back Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana, Stephen Lang, Joel David Moore and Giovanni Ribisi. “Avatar 3” and “Way of Water” were shot back-to-back, and the story was written for “Avatar 4” and “Avatar 5”, but whether it could be made depends on the performance of “Way of Water”.
It’s been more than a decade since “Avatar” came out, and Cameron recently talked about how he’s not sure “Ways of Water” will ever hit theaters. The film will be released in theaters this December.
