>The long awaited James Cameron sequel to the highest grossing movie of all-time hit tracking this morning with a projected opening of at least $150M. Tracking has it higher near $175M, but rivals are bullish at $200M.>Here’s the thing — the pic is being comped against holiday fanboy titles, and the numbers that are being seen need to be taken with a grain of salt. Avatar isn’t a front-loaded opening weekend fanboy movie, it’s one that will play and play. A $150M opening is 95% ahead of the original 2009 title’s $77M.>Everyone is going nuts over Avatar: The Way of Water forecasts because the unaided awareness (that indicator which measures those polled mentioning their want-to-see of the title without being prompted in a poll) is in the high 30s to 40s across all demos including Latino and Hispanic and Black. These are powerful figures which any studio would die for.
>>177168535lmao this hack faggot is gonna kill himself when this flops. at least he will have lots of free time to rewatch rings of power since he loves it so much.
true lies is overrated as fuck too. fucking b plot hamfisted into the a plot and the comedy elements ruin the tension of the movie. gay as fuck.
>>177168535>A $150M opening is 95% ahead of the original 2009 title’s $77M.what the fuck does this mean. 77m is like 106m today
>not 200MNo chance it makes 2B and beats the first, Avatar 4 and 5 won’t see the light of day
>>177168535Huh? That’s not very good.
>>177168535just because the first movie was successful doesn't mean this one will be.zoomers have never even heard of avatar and everyone that saw the original is too old to give a shit now.that being said I only torrented the first movie and it sucked
>>177169145i wouldnt say it sucked but it was aggressively mediocre especially from someone who has made classics in the past
The actual story of Avatar so boring that all people are discussing about this movie is the potential box office? Is Jake Sully and Pandora that uninteresting? You’re all more invested in potential profits you’ll never get a dime of.
>>177169295When does the world open the box?
>>177169295the cyberpunk premise is interesting, of jacking in to the treenet and getting a new body. it's just that everything surrounding that premise is gay treehugging nonsense
>>177168535basedfuck the hatersit's Avatar year you zoomer fags
>>177169295Scorsese was right, obsession with box office is killing movie discussion
>>177169084150 / 77 = 1.95
>>177169145>I only torrented the first movie and it suckedthen you suckAvatar is big 3D cinema experience not movie you play on your poorfag little laptop screen
>>177168535>long awaitedBy who besides Cameron and some Disney executives?
>>177169295Who the FUCK is Jake Sully?
>>177168535I was planning to see it in imax but it's sold out everywhere
>>177169454hey James, I hope your stupid cartoon fails and you realize no one gives a fuck about CGI anymore.
>>177169145>zoomers have never even heard of avatar and everyone that saw the original is too old to give a shit now.Top Gun succeeded
>>177169564but.. but.. muh avatrar2 will fail because I say soREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
>>177169454Wrong. Great movies like Lawrence of Arabia or even T2 are meant to be big theater experiences but are still very enjoyable on the home TV, because they have good stories, characters, scenes and music. Avatar had the 3D wow factor but very little else.
>>177169564Top Gun was a cult classic and starred TomCruise, dishonest comparison
>>177169426now do it with 106m
>>177169618>Lawrence of Arabiayou don't watch movies like this on small laptop either, get some proper projector home setup or die
>it costs too much, it takes too long, people stopped caring. It will bomb HARD.They said that about T2, Titanic and Avatar
>>1771697891.42dont you have a calculator?
I never have had these urge to watch avatar 1. Also never have I ever encountered a single real human that has told me “dude you have to watch avatar it’s amazing”Seems gay as fuck
>>177169962dude you have to watch avatar it’s amazing
>>177169871I said home TV. If you can't enjoy Lawrence of Arabia on a 55" tv then you are pretty jaded.
>>177169962>Also never have I ever encountered a single real human that has told me “dude you have to watch avatar it’s amazing”it's because you were 5 years old in 2009. Hype and word of mouth was massive.
>>177169564Retard tier take. Top Gun is a classic property and Maverick got extremely strong word of mouth from fucking boomers when they found out it was a fun movie without any white people bad politics. My mom made me go see it with her. No one cares about Avatar.
I'm shocked that the original only opened to $77 Million, but I guess it did have amazing legs. Will the new one do as well? Seems like with the new MCU films everyone rushes out to watch it on opening weekend so they don't get spoiled then it drops off a cliff, and everyone who didn't see it gets spoiled so they have no reason to go. Every MCU film is just an ad for upcoming MCU films so actually watching them is unnecessary. Avatar was an experience that you had to see, if the sequel can get some of that juice it'll be a phenomenon.
>>177170405it might have opened in a smaller amount of theaters than normal, mostly IMAX, and then expanded, not sure though
>>177170595According to BoxOfficeMojo it opened wide to 3,452 theaters. It had only a 1.8% drop in its second weekend. I don't think the sequel will have legs that good but even a 40% drop would be exceptional in the current climate.
>>177168535>long awaitedBy who? This is the only shit hole where it's mentioned and there's 12 of us here.

Disney is betting everything on this flick I see, long time since I saw this much disney shilling
>>177169962Dude. Hear me out. You HAVE to watch Avatar.
>>177168535Eh I give it 1.2 to 1.6 billion total run. Unless movie is really great.
>>177169295Avatar was all about the visuals. Characters were shit and plot was mediocre.
>>1771721191.5B is floor anime kun
>>177169625Nobody gives a fuck about original Top Gun. Nobody. Maverick was such a success simply because it's a great film released in one of the shittiest periods in Hollywood history.
Projections. What do they mean? Nothing, only reality matters.
>>177172200We'll see. Times changed. People are tired of le defend environment humans bad crap everywhere.
>>177169564>blue aliens vs.>top gun and tom cruisesure they will have the same impact
>>177169871If you can't enjoy a movie even on a 4in screen then the movie is trash
>>177171678>highest grossing movie in history has fans? No way. Must be shillsnigga, we have daily avatar threads for years on this board. /tv/ loves avatar
>>177169454Yeah, why have interesting characters, a good story with something to say in both its dialogue and cinematography when you can have >le cinematic experience aka cgi and loud noise and explosionsYou're literally a capeshitter.
>>177172149They'll do it again mark my wordsCruise knows, he's so convinced of this movie he kicked mi-7 back to summer 2023, leaving December-january all to Avatar
>>177170162>Maverick got extremely strong word of mouthThis is everything you needed to say. Movie was simply good. Avatar 2 will live or die on script quality. They can't ride the 3d meme this time.
>>177172650Eh we'll see. Cameron never failed before.
>>177172485>people are desperately shilling a movie coming out? from a company infamous for their aggressive shilling and that's on the brink of collapse? nah it can't be shilling because... it just can't okay?Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
Do people really think it was good that it warranted no discussion until a few years back with the Ukrainian guy? I would just lurk the threads when it comes out or when the avatar/James Cameron defense force quiets down.
>>177172608here not a capeshitterwatched Avatar in cinema plot was simple but I wasn't bored nor didn't expect some super depth of characters or plot twists, enjoyable blockbuster. New Top Gun is also enjoyable blockbuster is similar way, simple but fun
>>177169022I just don't see how this doesn't flop. you ask any nigga on the street what Avatar is and they're either too young or don't remember it.
>>177169022>>177173313still betting against james cameron after all this time?
>>177168535Literally know no one who is going to see this. No one cares about a squeal to a tech demo.
>>177173258Maverick was far better written.
>>177173846you know all of us though. half the board will be going to see it
>>177173846>Avatar reddit hater starter pack:>- DaNCes wiTH WoLVes in space>- FeRnGuLLy>- PoCAhoNtaS>- nO cUltURaL iMpAcT> - smurfs>- can't name any characters>- can't quote any dialog>- nobody cares after 13 years>- Only made money because of 3D gimmick>- nO OnE aSkEd fOR a sEqUeL>- CGI tech demo not a movieyou are this faggot
>>177173921Top gun was a generic jet movie, one of dozens in those same couple years, with the usual story of america vs bad guys and always triumph. Maverick was the exact same movie just with fancier special effects. You're retarded
>>177173846Your mom wont see it cuz she will be sucking my dick whole movie
>>177173921Maveric was good fun action flick without much bullshit But other than kino flying jets scenes story was bland and romance scenes were pushed just to be there without any depth or sense, still great summer flick I enjoyed
>>177174026This. Avatar is redditoid filter
>>177168535its confirmed KINO on an EPIC EPIC SCALElads, we won
>>177174510del Toro is a massive spaz this confirms Avatar 2 is gay ass shit
>>177174619del toro is one of us so 3billies are secured
>>177174510This is making me cry, I just wanted to see something Epic again and looks like it's going to happen>>177174654The Way of Water
>>177168535delusional propaganda to create artificial hype for this subhuman floating turd.
>>177174510>Guy who shilled Death Stranding said it was good so it must be good.
>>177169454literally looks old and busted and not fuckable anymore.even CGI where characters supposedly can stay young forever is not save from Roastiedom.
>>177170802>Redditbut those queers love it
Camerondrones and Kojimadrones are two sides of the same coin. They shill and suck off a hack and over hype the shit out of soulless slop.
>>177174775she's a mother of 5 now and 15 years older than in first film you chud
A successful Avatar 2 in my view will be like Temple of Doom. It begins with action set pieces till the very end.
