There are still a few months to go before its premiere, but Avatar: The Sense of Water does not stop generating headlines. Especially because its director doesn’t hold his tongue…
It’s without doubt that Avatar 2whose official title in Spain is Avatar: The Sense of WaterIt is one of the most anticipated movies of recent years. its predecessor is the highest grossing movie in historyalthough Avengers: Endgame is on his heels.
Avatar 2 has been in development for ten years, because according to its creator and director, James Cameron, the technology was not ready for his vision of the film. He has compared it to the Lord of the Rings saga, for its epicness and technical complexity.
But the wait is over, because Avatar: Sense of Water will be released on December 16 in theaters. And the film will be long, although it is not an exaggeration either: it will last about 3 hours. Precisely, like the Lord of the Rings movies, and others. You can watch the trailer here:
James Cameron likes long movies. In the last 30 years practically all his films have lasted more than two hours. So he does not accept that his films are criticized for the duration.
In an interview in Empire, the creator of mega-hits that have swept the box office, such as Titanic or Terminator, he is not shy about ridiculing trolls: “I don’t want anyone to complain about the duration when they then sit down to watch TV for eight hours,” he warns.
“I’ve watched my kids sit down and do five one-hour episodes in a row. This is the big social paradigm shift that needs to happen: It’s okay to get up and go pee.”
Good old Cameron is right… with nuances. A lot of people swallow 4 or 5 hour sessions of television, true. The difference with the cinema is that you can stop the series or movie calmly go to the serviceand pick up where you left off.
Today it is not feasible to go out to urinate in the middle of a movie. First, because it is very difficult to get out if you are in the middle of the queue, and you annoy a lot of people. And second, because obviously the movie goes on and you miss it.
The solution might be to set up some sessions for viewers with sensitive bladders, where There is a 15 minute break in the middle of the movie. Sometimes it has been done, for example with the aforementioned Lord of the Rings movies.
Al final, the quality of the film will have a lot to say: If it’s good, the three hours will fly by. If it’s boring, it can be made eternal…
