In news that will probably come as a surprise to utterly no one, James Cameron’azines Avatar 2 has been delayed yet again, and will no longer attack theaters in Dec 2017 as previously planned. This news comes on this heels of Disney’ohydrates decision to delay Star Wars: Episode VIII until 12 , 2017, which would have uneven skin the two blockbusters against one another (unfortunately not in a fight to the death, Gladiator-style).
The Wrap reports that Avatar 2 is delayed again, nevertheless it’s hardly alarming given the size and also scope of Cameron’ersus plans, and his need to shoot all three sequels consecutive in order to release all of them a year apart. The actual director previously said that hitting that December 2017 date wasn’t as vital to him while making sure that he may release a new Avatar sequel annually.
It’s remarkably doubtful that Cameron had been scared off by Episode VIII, given that The Pressure Awakens has yet to overtake the first Character as the highest-grossing film of all time at the worldwide container office. Episode VIII is now reaching theaters on Dec 15, 2017, while Avatar 2 might have arrived on 12 , 25 — a full 10 days later, but that also would have seen Star Wars biting into Cameron’s package office.
As of right now, 20th Century Fox has never rescheduled the Avatar 2 release, so we still know very little about Cameron’s strategies for the sequels. Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana and Sigourney Weaver are all expected to returning, and there will be a number of underwater filming. And…that’ersus it. We’ll help keep you posted on further developments, but given that Cameron has been promising Avatar 2 during the last several years, we’re probably not sure when we’lmost all see this thing.
