it’s been almost 13 years waiting for Avatar’s new chapter, the 2009 hit amazed us with the world of Pandora, and became the highest-grossing movie in history, grossing around 2.923 billion dollars worldwide.
“Avatar: The Way of Water” takes place more than a decade after the events of the first film, which had an open ending.
Jake Sully (Sam Worthington), his mind now permanently installed in a blue alien Na’vi body, is the chief of his clan, and he and his wife Neytiri (Zoe Saldaña) have four children.
They spend their time lolling around in skimpy loincloths, thinking about how happy they are, but inevitably their Edenic and slightly risqué tranquility ends when spaceships from the planet Earth roar down from the skies.
The invaders raze miles of jungle in a fiery apocalypse, much like the one at the start of Terminator 2. Then they stomp around in massive robotic exoskeletons, much like the ones in Aliens.
It’s clear pretty quickly, then, that Avatar: The Way of Water, is a James Cameron’s Greatest Hits: as the “Water” in the subtitle might suggest, several sequences come straight from The Abyss and Titanic.
In this new installment we’ll learn what happened to the Sully family (Jake, Neytiri and their children), the problems they face and everything they must do to stay safe.
“Avatar: The Way of Water” will hit theaters on December 16, 2022.
The film has a running time of 190 minutes, or 3 hours and 10 minutes. This tops its predecessor, which had a total running time of 162 minutes, by 28 minutes.
