I would argue Cameron is a scientist, an engineer and an artist.

 

Yep he is.

 

Only thing he can't do is make a bad movie.

Wouldn't need to argue that, it's patently obvious.

Was watching a recent Escape From New York documentary and the SFX guys would already tell the tales about how Cameron was fucking intense on everything he was working on the film.

act and compose music. (I think most Hollywood directors would contemplate changing careers having to compete with that).

 

I can only think of two contenders that top him as a polymath in the movie making realm,: Orson Welles and Charlie Chaplin.

I think Clint Eastwood might deserve a contenders spot up there.

He's in the conversation (alongside Buster Keaton, John Carpenter and many others) but he doesn't belong up there because he doesn't have that innovator bone those three have on top of being multi-tasking artist. Welles, Chaplin and Cameron all help to modernize movie making by researching then creating new techniques and visual effects pushing the envelope not only for their own movies but for the entire industry that adopted their innovations, they're pioneers like George Méliès. Eastwood is all artistry, he has no interest in the technology behind the art of making movies nor pushing the boundaries of movie making.

This is a great point, hadn't thought about it like that.

When do you think we'll see the first teaser? Before Episode IX? Super Bowl in February 2020? I hope it's epic, like the Lord of the Rings teaser.

Ah seeing that brings back fond memories...

 

Sometime in December would be my guess for the Avatar 2 teaser.

I hope for something early but I'm not expecting it. The first trailer for Avatar wasn't out till four months before release.

Jim says this is his manhatten project, I fully expect a teaser only to be dropped when it's ready.

 

So who knows, what I do know though is that teaser will blow minds.

A small part of me wants Alita to bomb just so that people underestimate Jim even more, then when it explodes past $6B WW I can sit back and laugh.

Wouldn't you rather have Alita gross $1.5B just to show that Jim can do it an unlimited number of times? 

 

Then when people start predicting this they'll be bullish predicting $2-3B, then even after they know it'll do a lot, Jim blows their minds once again...

Box Office reddit seems to think Avatar 3 might be moved from 2021 to accomdate Star Wars.
