James Cameron is currently preparing Avatar 2, the sequel to one of the most lucrative movies in movie history.
From its 2009 debut through 2019, Avatar has been the highest-grossing movie at the box office, with over $ 2.78 billion generated worldwide, but the arrival of Avengers: Endgame has earned it that title.
Endgame has generated more than $ 2.79 billion at the box office and currently stands as the record holder, but Cameron believes Avatar will regain the title.
In conversation with USA Today, Cameron says it is inevitable to see Avatar again on the list of most revenue-generating movies in his theaters.
“I think it’s a certainty,” Cameron said of Avatar passing on the result of Avengers: Endgame, something he will try as early as 2021 with Avatar 2. However, he says the most important thing is to see that people are still interested in going to the movies.
“But let’s give Endgame its momentum and celebrate that people are going to the movies.”
I don’t want to sound sarcastic after offering my congratulations, but they beat us by a quarter of a percent. I did the math in my head while driving in the morning. I think accountants call it a rounding error. “
Cameron says he is a big fan of Marvel Studios movies and that his success is good for everyone, “I was really convinced that with the new streaming services and the different ways people consume movies these days, the cinematic experience was going to fall to the point of a new Avatar movie, even if it was better than the first and best received, could never achieve the same box office results. “
The director says that the success of recent films in the cinema gives him enthusiasm and motivation to continue because “now we know that such a thing is still possible in theaters.”
It remains now to wait for the first look at Avatar 2 as we count the months until the premiere.
