The traditional meaning of nonplussed works for me when talking about Avatar. Genuinely baffles me as to why anyone has any interest in continuing it beyond the first film. It wasn't even that the first film was bad; it was probably the most mediocre thing I've ever watched.
Then again, I find Cameron's output all pretty overrated, with the exception of the original The Terminator.
Anyway, I too am a bit amazed that people still give a shit about Avatar, given how completely it seemed to disappear from the culture for the last decade or so. I guess all those people who got depressed about Pandora not being real are hankering for more.
But that's fine, people like things different to me, it is good that people like things. Go with god, I say! And JC.
Yeah, the Avatar re-release is getting a new 4K transfer finally too. I still like the movie, it’s my gf’s favourite film, and we’ll end up going to see both this year. I’m quite looking forward to the sequel. Not expecting much in terms of plot but I’m keen to see the new visuals.
"The teaser for Avatar: The Way of Water finished its first 24-hour online window with 148.6 million views, according to Disney. This beats all recent StarWars films, and puts it second overall for most views within the first day of launch". From THR.
I've still not seen the trailer. Off to see Dr. Strange 2 win 3D IMAX tomorrow so will get the full "experience" then.
Saw the avatar trailer before Dr Strange, though not in 3d or Imax. It looked.. like Avatar.
Pretty cgi worlds and stuff, but nothing in the trailer looked particularly mind-blowing. The trailer doesn't really have any plot or dialogue, so it's a bit like watching a trailer for a BBC Nature Documentary.
I can't say it got me particularly excited about the movie.
Infact, I'd already forgotten about the trailer so much that when I saw "Avatar: The Way of Water" I assumed it was a Last Airbender spinoff.
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.
