I’ll admit, for all the talk about how no one remembers the first film, that is an impressive feat, even accounting for how old this thread is. 

The irony behind saying no one remembers the first film...

Then you got the fact they actual do you know, because everyone seen it.


I would have hoped people would have stopped spouting the reddit narrative by now, a serious echo chamber for internet nerds. Reality is people love Avatar. Expect 5 billie

Podcast with production designer Ben Procter - Avatar update starts at 7:00 minute mark, he doesn't reveal a whole lot except for a status update. He returns to Avatar towards the end around 58:30, no specific details divulged.

I think the target should be releasing the new Avatar film on the 20th anniversary of the first film. We're getting pretty close to that, right? Sure seems like it. Although we're not so close to the anniversary to pressure finishing the new film. Gotta leave enough time to make sure that's done properly.

 

As far as the talk of the original being forgettable, that's a trick question. In and of itself, yes the first is very forgettable. However, it's like a JJ Abrams film. Avatar makes itself more memorable by including a heavy dose of member berries in the formula. The story line is pretty much Pocahontas in Space, so it is kind of hard to completely blank on the plot.

😘 by the sounds of it you don't, because I know that she keeps a copy of the bluray on her bedside table

 

the above is joke what I wanted to write but I'm worried you don't get humour too well and would take it seriously

This should be pretty relevant for this thread. Assuming, we don't see a major drop in admissions for Avatar 2 from the original, which is frankly pretty unlikely. As you see, Toy Story is an established property, so it has pretty much eased itself in last 20 years, Avatar easing off will be much higher.

With just 4% decline in admissions, the box office in Europe's Big 5 decreased 31%, thanks to 3D decline and Exchange rates.

Avatar grossed $685 million in these five countries, the sequel should target $375 million I guess. Overall Europe was $1.2 Billion, I will be very surprised if 2nd cross $700mn.

I do honestly think some people overestimate the drop this will see from Avatar while at the same time some people vastly underestimate the drop. My predictions for this (if its gets released at all that is :D ) something around 1,4 - 1,8B Worldwide.

 

Avatar was a phenomenon yeah. But the second time around, many people will just dont care.
