James Cameron confirms two Avatar sequels

Pin it

Never one for moderation, world-beating filmmaker James Cameron has just announced two Avatar sequels to be released around the holidays of 2013 and 2014 respectively. (The future!) This was probably a fait accompli as soon as Avatar grossed 2.7 billion dollars (making it the first movie to ever break 2 billion). Remember when the internet was all, "ahh, it's Dances With Smurfs" and Cameron was all, "doubt my money-making power and I will crush you under a giant pile of gold bricks"? We know how that panned out, even though creatively speaking, Avatar was no Aliens. Hubristic though he may be, Cameron apparently has a very good instinct for profit. Production on Avatar 2: The Quickening will begin next year. (Not actual title.)
