Part 2 of hit movie Avatar will be released in December, but not of 2014 as previously expected, but at least a year later, informs The Hollywood Reporter, with reference to the producer of project Jon Landau.
“We’re not naming dates, but I think 2014 will be a tough date for us to make. It’s about getting it right… movies make release dates; release dates don’t make movies,” explained Landau to Empire.
It is being said that one of the reasons for delay in Avatar sequel can be attributed to director James Cameron’s recent involvement with conversion of “Titanic” in 3D and diving to the bottom of Mariana Trench. As per Cameron, this work has cost him about $ 18 million besides occupying about 60 weeks and it required no less tight control than shooting. The 3D version of Titanic has already been released in many countries, including India and has already managed to gross 4.7 million dollars.
It is known that the action of Avatar 2 will mostly be under water. Technological devices that enable you to shoot underwater as per motion capture technology, when digital images in the computer are accumulated from sensors attached to the face and body of live actor, are currently under development at Cameron’s studio.
It is said the impression of director from his diving in Mariana Trench will be used in the film.
Avatar 2 will be followed by part 3 and as Landau points out that both the films will be separate works with completely different stories, and not a single adventure, broken into two parts.
Avatar was released in December 2009 grossing U.S. $ 2.7 billion. Work on it lasted for almost ten years and it cost the makers 237 million dollars.
