    It'll have to - the first film borrowed pretty much everyone else's!

    I will believe anything Cameron said if/when a sequel comes out.

    So there will have to be roles for Bill Paxton and Michael Biehn, right?

    Yes, Michael Biehn plays Jake Sully's father, the retired Sergeant Major Sully. He's brought in by the company to talk his "terrorist" son down. Or at least that's what he's been told. In reality, he's used to lure Jake into a trap. After both Sullys manage to escape that trap, he threatens the company's CEO (played by Bill Paxton) to go public about what really happens on Pandora. As a result he's murdered on the CEO's orders... which gets Jake really, really mad.

    I hope Cameron comes up with something less clichéd than that. But maybe not. It will have great special effects though. ;)

    Doug Trumbull tried to get this very idea off the ground decades ago as "Showscan" - the problem then was that exhibitors would have had to bear the cost of replacing all their projection equipment.

    Because 3D is currently driving a switch-over to digital delivery in theaters across the country, this is no longer a problem. Thanks to Cameron, again. :techman:

    ‘Avatar 2′ In 2014? Probably Not Says Producer Jon Landau

    What do you think of this? They’re saying Avatar 2 won’t be released until 2015, with Avatar 3 following on 2016 or 2017.

    It will look great when it is done. Hopefully time to work on the script too.

    I really don't care.

    The story was MEH, told better before.
    The razzle, dazzle of the 3-D effects will long be over and that was the only real draw for the film.

    I don't see this recapturing or reigniting anything like the first film did. This will determine just who the core Avatar fan base really is.

    I believe in the sequel Pocahontas is supposed to follow John Smith back to Earth.

    However long it takes. I'm really looking forward to this; the first one was brilliant.

    I suspect that the folks who didn't like the story in the first one will be similarl dissatisfied with the sequel.

    There are quite a few good films out this year and over the next couple of years, I'll be waiting patiently, 2014 or 15. It'll be interesting to see more of Pandora, and what exotic aquatic life the planet has.

    My biggest concern for the story is that I just don't see where it can go. I have a feeling it will either be a rehash of the first story (Pandora still has Unobtainium; Humans still want it) or it'll be such a dramatic departure from the first story that you wonder why they didn't just pretend it was a new series altogether.

    I'm just flustered because Cameron keeps putting off the "Battle Angel Alita" project he's mentioned for well over a decade now. I wanna' see Kishiro's petite cyborg bounty hunter tearin' up the joint. On a similar front, I'm curious how Speilberg will handle Masamune Shirow's Major Motoko Kuasanagi in his adaptation of "Ghost in the Shell".

    Hmm, you know, I think I have a thing for robo-babes. ;) :drool:

    Sincerely,

    Bill

    ^^^ I'm still waiting for the Dark Angel continuation movie... :D

    Looking forward to Avatar 2. While the story of Avatar was pretty derivitive of other movies it was so well done I looked past all the similarities to those other movies. The visuals of the foirst one are enough to get my butt in a theater seat for the sequel.
