Re: What franchise has had the closest cultural impact since Star Wars

Obviously it is only one movie at this point, but I think Avatar has potential to approach Star Wars in cultural impact. Visually, its DNA has already been seen in Green Lantern and seems to be found in the forthcoming John Carter as well. In terms of 3-D, I think its influence cannot be overstated.

Of course, the franchise itself could fold if the sequel(s) are a flop, much like The Matrix (which sequels made money, but were a disappointment compared to the first film, leading the franchise to slowly go out with a whimper).
