Do you remember a little film called “Avatar” from back in ? Yah, me neither.
The film exploded during it’s debut, breaking the Word Record for highest-grossing film of all time, which was previously held by Cameron’s “Titanic,” and changing the film industry fundamentally and permanently.
And yet it’s been seven years and there’s been no sequel and little buzz. The cinematic giant has shrunk into the background while series like the MCU and the “Star Wars” films have owned the decade in its place.
But, as a reminder that the saga of Pandora is coming back someday to take over theaters again, James Cameron spoke about the sequel at the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers’ Centennial Gala last week, where he was awarded an honorary membership.
“I’m going to push,” he said about the sequels. “Not only for better tools, workflow, high dynamic range and high frame rates — the things we are working toward. I’m still very bullish on 3D, but we need brighter projection, and ultimately I think it can happen — with no glasses. We’ll get there.”
