A few weeks ago, someone on FB asked a general question if anyone was going to the new Avatar movie. I saw the first one on January 1, 2010. Yes, I remember the date. So a new one is coming out 13 years later.
I don't remember it being good enough to see a second time, or visit their corner of some theme park - or good enough that it deserved a corner of some theme park. I certainly am not all that interested in seeing the sequels.
Yes. S. Plural.
James Cameron is giving us 3-4 additional Avatar movies.
No one asked for that. Literally no one.
Even the greediest or most hopeful studio exec is smart enough to know that each one isn't going to make $3,000,000,000 like the first one. Of course, when these were conceived, there was no such thing as Covid-19 and movie theaters actually had people in them. Not so much anymore.
The only reason I'm for them is so Sigourney Weaver can make some dough. I think she died in the first one, but it's sci-fi and there is money to be made. They can bring her back, I'm sure.
It just won't be my money.
But then I remembered that SNL did a skit that is Avatar adjacent with Ryan Gosling. I gotta give it to Gosling (and would, given the chance!), but he totally commits to the segment. And this is like 5-6 years old at this point. But this is my laziness - you get an SNL video, but the bonus is: Ryan Gosling.
