Avatar succeeded on the strength of its visuals. And I'm sure the new ones will be similarly pretty. But basically every big budget movie has great graphics these days, so I don't know what Cameron could do to really blow me away.
And it shouldn't. They aren't advertising it to do so, though there will plenty of info about it as we near release. It's new tech that they've developed. It doesn't matter to the audience how the sausage is made, just how it tastes. We'll see what it does when the trailers start landing.
I don't have a massive interest in returning to Pandora (as far as stories called "Avatar" go, I'm more excited by the Last Airbender live-action series), but I have a feeling this will surprise everyone by going bananas. Probably won't top the first film, but I think we're looking at the biggest film of the year again.
Hi Rory, it's your agent Jane Plough. I've got you a plum gig, it's a film where you play every conceivable male character. Yes, including creepy Aphex Twin kids and you get to wear loads of shit wigs. Oh yes, to have hair again!

EMarkM: Will there ever be a boy born who can swim faster than a shark?

vicedestroyer: I guess, once the world does its best Waterworld impression, it will be survival of the fittest. Either the boy swims fast or becomes shark tucker.

zagibu: Sharks not only swim fast, they also swim silent. Their scales are called dermal denticles, and they create local swirls around them which reduce the shark's overall drag in water.

zagibu: So even if a boy could swim as fast as a shark, he wouldn't hear them coming.

Aunt Alison: In sharks, no one can hear you swim
