James Cameron has a large quantity of potential blockbuster movies on his sleeves, and he will fight them from haters at all costs. Avatar was made in 2009, and it remains one of the most successful Hollywood films. It appears Cameron is planning a second blockbuster.
Avatar: The Way of Water has a run time of 2 hours and 40 minutes, which is quite a long time for a film. However, Cameron is overtaking it with the film because it takes 3 hours to complete.
Cameron addressed Empire in an interview, in which he revealed the film's runtime. He stated that he does not want anyone to be sabotaging the time, because most people have the patience to binge-watch the whole series in one go.
When someone sits and binge-watches [television] for eight hours, I wouldn't want them to be hysterical about the length. This is how I can write my review. The agonizing three-hour film It's like, give me a break.
The director revealed that his children have patiently watched 5 one-hour-long episodes of a series in one sitting. He then joked that the next paradigm shift in cinema should be that fans should understand that it is okay to get up and pee.
My kids have sat and sat and sat and sat for five one-hour episodes in a row. Here's where the big social paradigm shift is going to take place: it's okay to get up and go pee.
Avatar is one of the highest-grossing films of all-time, having grossed $2.84 billion. It turns out to be a lot more when adjusted for inflation. Even with a longer runtime, the hype suggests that the film will generate record-breaking revenue.
