In December, the sequel to the highest-grossing film in history finally premieres, thirteen years after its debut. What do you know about Avatar 2 so far? One of the latest news to be confirmed is the length of the film, which will be no less than 3 hours and 10 minutes.
In this way, Avatar 2: The Way of Water will be very close to Titanic, also by director James Cameron, which lasted 3 hours and 14 minutes.
The original Avatar film, released in December 2009, had a running time of 2 hours and 41 minutes, and remains the highest-grossing film of all time with over $2.9 billion in revenue, all closely followed by Avengers: Endgame. with almost 2.8 billion dollars.
About Avatar 2 and its release date in theaters everything is already confirmed. The film hits theaters the week of December 14 in most markets. Some countries like France and Italy will have it from December 14, others like Argentina, Brazil and Mexico, from December 15, and the United States, from December 16.
This has to do with the traditional release dates that countries have. In Argentina, Brazil and Mexico, among other territories, films debut on Jewish days; while in the United States, they do it on Fridays. In any case, there will be a preview the day before.
What do you know about Avatar 2 and its arrival in streaming?
Putting a date here is more complicated. Although it is a production of 20th Century Studios, one of the many brands of Disney, its arrival in Disney Plus it is guaranteed but putting a release date is not as clear as in other films.
Many of the films from the Disney factory arrived approximately 45 days after their arrival in theaters. But in the case of fences, the delays are usually longer. If Avatar 2 surpasses $1 billion in revenue, the wait will be one. But if it goes over 2 billion, I would have to wait even longer. Something similar to what happened with big hits like Top Gun: Maverick, which was not yet on Paramount Plus.
Why can’t you buy the original movie?
In several countries in Latin America, Disney decided to leave the stores of Apple TV or Amazon, the possibility of buying any film of its brands: whether from Star Wars, Pixar, Disney, 20th Century Studios or Marvel. The reasons are not clear, since the public who wants to acquire a film, will not stop subscribing to a platform, and does so more by collection.
That’s the case with 2009’s Avatar, which not only can’t be bought, but is being pulled from Disney Plus’ own streaming platform.
Who are part of the cast and crew of The Way of Water?
The cast of Avatar 2 includes, among others, Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldaña, Sigourney Weaver, Michelle Rodriguez, Stephen Lang, Giovanni Ribisi, Laz Alonso and Kate Winslet, all of course under the direction and production of James Cameron.
