We’re just a few days behind the blockbuster release of Avatar 2, or we can say that the wait for James Cameron’s wondrous sci-fi film is getting shorter and shorter for over a decade. Both developers and fans have many expectations for Avatar 2 titled Avatar: The Way of Water. The film is back through massive investment. How expensive is Avatar 2?
In some previous reports, we had seen that Avatar 2’s production budget was $250 million. The amount was later given as $400 million. The mammoth figure makes Titanic director James Cameron one of the most expensive films of all time. The upcoming sci-fi avatar: The Way of Water has already garnered a lot of attention around the world for many reasons, one of which is showcasing dazzling, adventurous teasers and visuals from time to time. Now the biggest requirement for Avatar 2 is to accumulate over $2 billion just to break even in terms of investment.
In a recent conversation with GQ Magazine, Avatar 2 director James Cameron said that “it’s the worst business case in movie history”. The 68-year-old Hollywood director said the Biggie needs more than $2 billion in the global box office to make a profit.
That being said, in reference to the success of Avatar 2, titled Avatar: The Way of Water, James Cameron said, “The film has to be the third or fourth highest grossing film in history. This is your threshold. This is your breakeven point.”
Here is the synopsis of Avatar 2, officially titled “Avatar: The Way of Water” by 20th Century Studios – “Avatar: The Way of Water,” set more than a decade after the events of the first film, begins the story of the Telling the Sully family (Jake, Neytiri and their children), the difficulties that follow them, the struggles they make to keep each other safe, the struggles they fight to stay alive and the tragedies, they have to endure.
Avatar 2’s running time was announced in October 2022 as 190 minutes (3 hours and 10 minutes). James Cameron told Empire: “I don’t want anyone to whine at length when they sit and binge watch [television] eight hours long… I watched my kids do five hour-long episodes in a row. Here’s the big societal paradigm shift that needs to happen: It’s okay to get up and pee.”
