Avatar: The Way of Water’s stunning budget ‘revealed’

The budget of Avatar: The Way of Water is larger than expected.

In recent years, the budget for the sequel has increased due to the development of technology required by James Cameron to portray the film’s extended underwater sequences.

In the director’s own words, the sequel to the 2009 blockbuster – the highest-grossing film of all time – is “really damn” expensive.

Speak with GQ In an interview, Cameron said the film cost so much that he told the studio Avatar: The Way of Water presented “the worst business case in film history”.

Cameron responded, claiming that the film would have to become “the third or fourth highest-grossing film in history” in order for it to make more money than it cost.

“That’s your threshold,” he said, adding, “That’s your breakeven point.”

It appears that Cameron is referring to domestic box office gross, considering the third and fourth highest grossing films of all time Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Avengers: Infinity Warwhich have revenues of $2.05bn (£1.72bn) and $2.04bn (£1.7bn) respectively.

Cameron has two films in the top 5, with titanic in third place with sales of $2.2bn (£2.19bn) and avatar at the top with $2.9bn (£2.4bn).

Sitting in the middle is Avengers: Endgame with $2.79 billion (£2.45 billion).

However, the budget was apparently revealed by The Hollywood Reporterwho claim it’s between $350m (£292.4m) and $400m (£334m).

That makes it easy Avatar: The Way of Waterwhich hits theaters on December 16th, one of the most expensive movies of all time, by the way endgame and Avengers: Age of Ultron.

The only film that could be more expensive is Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tideswhich cost $379million (£316.6million) – although Cameron’s comments suggest so The way of the water is most likely number one.

The first avatar had a budget of $237 million (£198 million).
