The first trailer for “Avatar: The Way of Water” arrived on the web on Monday after debuting at CinemaCon and then in front of “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness” – but if you haven’t seen it yet, a treat awaits you .
The sequel to “Avatar” was directed by James Cameron, based on his 2009 hit, and now takes us underwater with stunning cinemas outside the world.
Located more than a decade after the events of the first film, “Avatar: The Water Path” begins to tell the story of the Sully family (Jake, Neytiri and their children), the trouble that accompanies them, the lengths they go. guard each other, the battles they fight to stay alive and the tragedies they suffer.
“I know one thing: wherever we go, this family is our stronghold,” says Jake Sully of Sam Worthington at the end of the trailer.
The trailer is a slight plot beyond that, but it points to one of the Sully family’s children who were raised as Na’vi but look like humans. And so much of Pandora’s magnificent exploration takes place over the pristine ocean teeming with life, including one massive aquatic beast.
Directed by James Cameron and produced by Cameron and Jon Landau, the film stars Zoe Saldana, Worthington, Sigourney Weaver and Stephen Lang, all returning from the original film, as well as newcomers Cliff Curtis, Joel David Moore, CCH Pounder, Edie Falco, Jemaine Clement and Kate Winslet.
“The Water’s Way” is the first of four sequels to be released by Studio 20th Century in the next few years, and Cameron has been working with them since the original was released in 2009. Countless delays and more than a decade have passed since the original questioned the appetite for a new “Avatar” film, let alone four of them.
But the original “Avatar” was a revolutionary event that took 3-D technology to new heights and was one of the last of its kind to be an original blockbuster that has grown to enormous heights since word of mouth at its own spectacle. The film was nominated for nine Oscars, including Best Picture, and won three. After being re-released in China last year which showed that there is still tremendous excitement for this franchise, “Avatar” in the world remains the highest grossing film of all time with $ 2.84 billion.
“Avatar: The Road of Water” begins in theaters on December 16, and 20th Century Studios reissues the original “Avatar” on September 23.
