Avatar: The Sense of Water, a sequel that wants to be ‘provocative but not preachy’
2022 will be the year when box office glory will save cinema. First it was Tom Cruise with his top gun: Maverick. No one could bet that a reunion with the helicopter pilots who won in 1986 would bring in more than $700 million in the United States alone. A collection a stone’s throw from the movie Avatar, the course promises to destroy everything and reached 760 million in 2009. James Cameron’s movie isn’t that old, but it’s been 13 years. The world discovers Pandora, a fictional universe the director unfolds in terrifying 3D, a technique favored for its abuse.
Since then, a sequel has been repeatedly announced, which has yet to appear. Released on December 16 is Avatar: The Sense of Water, the second installment directed by James Cameron and the first of many sequels to premiere at Disney (which retained the rights after Fox’s purchase). To launch the ad machine, its creator Jon Landau presented some impressive images in Madrid that already show the technological extravagance, including some water scenes where the 3D shines again. We also explain that new generations will be the main characters in the sequel. And if you think the “glasses” are gone, you can remove them, because the movie is designed and made for 3D.
Landau held a meeting with the audience in attendance and explained that when they decided to make a sequel, they “decided there would be more than one”. “The source of any film is the script, so we took our time to finish all four scripts and James Cameron and I were happy with them before we started production. Then we had to “invent” the technology. These films have always wanted to take technology to places we never thought possible. Till now, scenes could be shot underwater, but not the way we did it, where our actors interpreted and the technology filmed the scenes underwater,” he said about the film’s innovations.
For John Landau, the key to the success of the first incarnation was people identifying with Jake Sully, “who was an outsider who didn’t have a home.” “I didn’t belong anywhere, and this feeling of belonging to a community, to a place, and finding another purpose in life… If you watch the first movie, it starts and ends with Jake opening his eyes. And maybe that’s a challenge that we want to continue to throw at people, to open their eyes and understand that our actions affect the people around us and the world around them,” Landau said of the film’s message.
The projected images also make it clear that the sequel will continue to touch on themes from the first, especially protecting the environment at a time when the climate crisis is much stronger than it was 13 years ago. “I think science fiction is always a metaphor for the world we live in. Our oceans make up 80% of the Earth’s surface. 80% of our body is water. This is a film about water. We want to become more aware of the beauty that we have. But this film should be provocative, not preachy, and I hope this film does that and makes people’s eyes look differently again.”
People who want to watch it on their devices won’t be able to for a long time yet. The film was made for the big screen.
– Producer “Avatar”
The producer defended the cinematic experience and even asked for the verb used to go to the movies to be changed. No one should say they are “going to watch a movie”, but “experience a movie”. He positioned himself in favor of the traditional expo and for those who believe that the sequel is coming to the platform soon should wait quietly: “Those who want to see it on their devices will not be able to do so for a long time. Time we will not release simultaneously in theaters and platforms. We will not do this with a 20 day window or a 30 day window. The film was made for the big screen. This was a commitment we made to our fans, and that commitment was supported by our partners at Disney.”
To commemorate this cinematic experience, to whet your appetite (and, by the way, make money) and remind people of “all its uniqueness,” it advocated a re-release of the original film, hitting theaters on September 30. experienced.” Watching movies on the big screen. It’s not just a community viewing experience, but a commitment you make with others when you go to the movies. It is mandatory to switch off the phone. It’s a commitment to not distract yourself. These are the conversations in the corridors at work on the weekend after the release of the film. This is not the case when people watch movies alone.” An engrossing film that should bring legions of fans back to Pandora and surpass Top Gun’s 700 million mark to become the highest grossing film of the year again after 13 years.
