People who ever doubt James Cameron are playing a foolish game. Indeed, this is the man who directed classics such as The Terminator, Aliens and Terminator 2: Judgement Day which itself is, for me, the greatest action film ever made. More importantly, he directed both Titanic and Avatar which are the top two highest grossing films of all time. Both films made over $2 billion worldwide with Avatar being the top of the bunch.

Truly, when Avatar was released in 2009, it became a worldwide phenomenon and it was widely expected that due to how much of a juggernaut it was from a financial perspective, a sequel would follow shortly. Perhaps two, maybe three years. No more than four right?

Nope, we are still waiting and while I am still very excited for the sequel to Avatar (a film I really like), it is safe to say that not everyone feels the same way that I do. Avatar 2 is set to release in December 2020 and while it is unlikely to achieve the same financial feats of Avatar, it is expected to make a ton of money despite the time difference between the two films.

James Cameron Talks About The Worst-Case Scenario

However, the sequels might not be profitable and James Cameron has been very frank about this worst-case scenario. In an interview with Vanity Fair, James Cameron stated that “Let’s face it, if Avatar 2 and 3 don’t make enough money, there’s not going to be a 4 and 5”. It seems clear that the willingness of 20th Century Fox to green-light two more sequels after Avatar 2 and Avatar 3 will be solely dependent on the box office performance of both films.

This is a safe play by the film studio. Still, the safe bet is that these films will make money. Clearly, it is unlikely that it will do as well as Avatar but it is more than likely that Avatar 2 and Avatar 3 will be profitable films that will further cement James Cameron’s legacy as an incredible filmmaker.
