In 2010 you would have been laughed at in Hollywood for doubting that there would be a sequel avatar. James Cameron’s fantasy epic had taken the world by storm; To date, it is the most successful film of all time. When avatar 2 was then announced, touted for 2014, it seemed like a nailed-down winner. But 12 years and countless delays later, no one is so sure. There were countless recordings avatar‘s faded relevance: that it has no cultural shelf life; that the public has lost interest. Experience the 3D cinema avatar made it so uniquely appealing is all but extinct. The upcoming sequel has become the punch line. But that won’t stop Cameron from laughing all the way to the bank.
You see rumors of avatarThe cultural obsolescence of is exaggerated. It quite axiomatically lacks the resonance of a war of stars or Lord of the rings, yes, but we’re still talking about a sequel to a movie that almost everyone has seen. The years of delays may have killed the franchise’s momentum, but it has infused the sequel with a level of complete intrigue. This is exacerbated by the fact that nobody has been allowed to see a framework of what is now officially called Avatar: The Way of Water. Early last week, the very first trailer for way of the water was shown in theaters before screenings of Marvel Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madnessahead of its more conventional online debut today (May 9).
There’s only so much to glean from the trailer that avoids the kind of Easter egg-heavy approach favored by your modern-day blockbuster franchise. Those online fanatics who enjoy poring over every frame in a trailer may be disappointed; The thrill here is in the macro. Accompanied by slow, ominous organ music, this is the only way to describe the footage lush. There are huge green backdrops and blue Na’vi faces animated with unprecedented detail. There is a greater variety of environments here than in the original avatar – from the jungles of Pandora to dense industrial areas to vast bodies of water. (As the title suggests, this is a film that appears to be centered around the planet’s waters, although little is revealed about the plot.)
The downside to this approach is that it feels more like a tech demo or the trailer for a long-matured video game sequel. We admire the advances that have been made in CGI animation over the last 12 years – wouldn’t you just look at the shine on that water? – but emerge with little sense of plot or a “hook” in terms of content. This problem is compounded by the fact that so many of the blue Na’vi faces look all too alike: it’s difficult to single out new cast member Kate Winslet, although others have spotted flashes of her here.
I doubt this trailer will convince avatarthe doubters. It seems to promise awe before excitement, grandeur before history. But let’s be clear: At this point The way of the water still holds his cards tight to his chest. As far as we know, it holds a royal flush.
