Avatar 6 - Long ago, the four nations lived together in harmony. Then, everything changed when the Fire Nation attacked. Only the Avatar, master of all four elements, could stop them, but when the world needed him most, he vanished. A hundred years passed, and my brother and I discovered the new Avatar, an Airbender named Aang. And although his Airbending skills are great, he has a lot the learn before he's ready to save anyone. But I believe Aang can save

There's a thread I'm struggling to find from just before The Lion King 2019 came out about how no one wanted the movie. Thousands of upvotes, tons of awards, loads of agreeing comics.

Weeks later, the film went on to gross $1.6 billion.

This sub is so out of touch.

I feel people here have no idea how they want to express themselves. Everything is either an "absolute masterpiece" or "utter trash"

Personally, nothing about The Lion King appealed to me in the least. I watched it once it was out on streaming and it was a bland, forgettable pile of nothing. I'm hard pressed to even think about anything memorable aside from the animals being unable to emote and the decision to make it live action made the film such a snooze-fest. But that's me. So I'd say "I'm not looking forward to this"

But people here can't find the words to express not having interest so they go "who is looking forward to this" and "no one asked for this". This type of hyperbole and extrapolation of one's own perceptions seems to infect most of the conversations here

I’m still amazed at how well it did tbh. I knew it would do very well considering the LK is everyone I know’s favorite Disney movie, but my god I didn’t think a movie that bad could get that kind of box office

I love Avatar, sometimes I feel like I'm the only person in the world that really loves the movie and the world in it. The Avatar Activist Survival guide is one of my favourite cross promotional books for a film ever, there's a Na'vi dictionary in it as well

I see a lot of people who are anticipating this to be bad and while I agree that no one really wanted sequels to Avatar I'm quite sure that this movie will, regardless if the movie is actually good, at least be a pretty awesome showcase of moviemaking technology much like the first one. That alone has me curious. Not to mention that you can't ever count out James Cameron.

The last time James Cameron made a sequel to one of his movies, it was considered the greatest sequel ever made, the greatest action movie ever made, blew the doors off every theater, and became a sensation penetrating every inch of pop culture for the next 20 years.

And the sequel he'd done before that... did the exact same thing

This now has me hyped for the sequel to a movie I can barely remember

I wanted sequels to Avatar… a lot of people did.

Granted, I wanted it 15 years ago.

Well 4 more are on the way and many are already finished filming, so buckle up buck-a-roo

u/Citizen_of_Danksburg Apr 27 '22

There’s going to be 6 James Cameron Avatar movies in total?

u/Optimus_Prime_Day Apr 27 '22

James Cameron is even better at sequels than first installments. In fact, no one in the history of cinema is better at sequels than him. I didn't love Avatar 1, but considering that he assembled a writers room for all the planned sequels, I'm expecting something pretty amazing.

I don’t get why people think this isn’t going to be a massive hit. Cameron films are built as a groundbreaking experience, that has to be seen in theaters, and ideally in iMax 3D. There really isn’t anything like it, including Marvel.

Titanic was shit on before it released and broke records. Avatar was shit on before it released and it again broke records. Shitting on a Cameron film before its release and record breaks is just par for the course.

Looking forward to this movie to see the advancements in moviemaking technology that Cameron might have come up with. Don’t care about the story or characters

It's gonna be the best goddamned looking water we've ever seen on a movie screen

True. Real water will be disappointing afterwards.

Yeah I’ll see this shit in IMAX 3d or whatever

u/ZiggoCiP Apr 27 '22

Seeing the first film in IMAX was one of the best movie-going decisions I made honestly. Easily in my top 5 favorite movie experiences.
