Avatar 2 has no choice, it has to be a monumental card

With Avatar 2, James Cameron bets very big. This sequel must necessarily be in the top of the most lucrative films of all time, alongside other productions by the filmmaker.

James Cameron’s ambitions for Avatar 2 are such that the director has absolutely no room for error.

Avatar 2 must be a gigantic success

During an interview with Total Film, James Cameron explained that if Avatar 2: The Way of the Water was not meeting the expected success, so the next films would be in great danger.

The market could decide that it’s over for us in three months, or almost over. It’s like, “Okay, let’s close the story with the third film, and leave it at that if it’s just not profitable”. Since we wrote these films, the world has changed. There have been two upheavals: the pandemic and the rise of streaming. Or conversely, maybe we’ll manage to remind people what a cinematic experience is. This is the purpose of this film. Now the question is: how many people still give a fuck?

At what point ? Avatar 2: The Way of Water will have to join the very closed circle of the top 5 most profitable films of all time. And this because of the cost of production.

It must be the third or fourth highest-grossing film in history. This is your break-even point.
