'Avatar' Poll: Are You Still Excited for the Sequels?Eric Walkuski |
Yesterday, it was announced that our future stay in Pandora will be longer than expected. Three sequels to the James Cameron blockbuster 'Avatar' are currently being prepared, with the first expected to drop in 2016. But this begs the question: are you still even excited about returning to that world?
It has been almost four years since 'Avatar' first landed and became the biggest film of all time. It seemed like people just couldn't get enough of Cameron's colorful alien universe, with fans reportedly going back to the theater dozens of times in an effort to literally "live" in Pandora. (No kidding: do you remember "the Avatar Effect"?) Against all odds, Cameron proved the naysayers wrong and crafted another sweeping, heartfelt epic that captured the imaginations of millions.
But it will be seven years since the first film's release when 'Avatar 2' (reportedly) comes out, and as we know well, audiences often find ways to move on to something else - not to mention the fact that in 2016 we'll be firmly ensconced in new 'Star Wars' films and Marvel Phase Three. It's possible that the world will have passed 'Avatar' by.
So what do you think? Are you still excited about the 'Avatar' sequels, or do you think it's too late to get reinvested? Vote in our poll and comment below!
