I remember she was vocal about never working with him again. It had to do with his perfectionism and asking for too many takes, while in miserable conditions (probably pruning up in the water).

She thinks it is just voice over work ... wait till she finds out the "technology" he has been working on all these years is actually growing Na'vi from test tubes and channeling human consciousness into them. Water, pruning ... shit, that ain't nothing.

That's easily the funniest thing that SNL has done in a decade.

'Avatar' Sequels: James Cameron Confirms Use of Sony Venice Cameras for Production

Ever since James Cameron announced plans for his Avatar sequels, there's been plenty of speculation about which cameras he would use. Today, Cameron and producer Jon Landau's Lightstorm Entertainment confirmed that Sony’s Venice cameras with 3D stereoscopic rigs will be used for Avatar 2 and 3, which will be lensed by Oscar winning cinematographer Russell Carpenter (Cameron's Titanic).

Cameron had also previously expressed interest in high dynamic range and incorporating high frame rates. The Venice (and generally all major motion cameras) support these options as well.

Said the director in a released statement: “The Venice camera delivers the most astonishing image I’ve ever seen. The blacks are rich, deep and velvety, the highlights and source lights are amazingly bright. For the first time, we truly appreciate what the term high dynamic range means.”
Sony said it worked closely with Lightstorm to customize the Venice camera — Sony's first full-frame digital motion picture camera, which was unveiled last September — for the production's specific needs, with regular meetings taking place between Cameron, his production teams and Sony’s engineering group.

The camera maker explained that "using the new Sony cabling system, the only part of the Venice carried on the rig will be the image sensor optical blocks, significantly reducing on-board camera weight to about three pounds per sensor block. By lowering the weight and improving ergonomics, Cameron and the Lightstorm team will have the ability to shoot with greater flexibility and freedom." This could include use with Steadicams, drones, gimbals and shooting in confined spaces, a Sony rep added.

Performance capture work is already underway on the sequels, though principal photography isn't expected to begin until early 2019.

The first of Cameron's four planned Avatar sequels is scheduled for a Dec. 18, 2020 release.

Wow. Two sequels are already wrapped?! But we still don't have a definitive release date? I guess it's vaguely December 2020 two years from now? Have there been any sequels in development for so long?

What with all the digital effects and whatnot, I'm sure 90% of the movies will be done in post.

I read somewhere that Sigourney Weaver is already filming her scenes for Avatar 4 and 5.

Its...fine. The joke wasn't that it's a bad font, the joke is that the graphic designer for the Avatar logo was really, really, lazy and just picked a random font for the title, instead of designing something unique.

It's also overused. It's the new Comic Sans.

I'm sure she was cast ages ago and already shot her scenes since principal green screen photography is done. I think this is just the studio making it public now.

re: Avatar 2 (2021, D: Cameron) S: Worthington, Saldana

Haven't read all 16 pages of this thread, so I'm not sure if it's been brought up yet, but does it spark anyone else as ironic that Cameron is about to produce a handful of high-end 3D movies at the same time all TV manufacturers have scrapped 3D on new sets? In other words, the 3D experience of these films is probably never going to be seen at home (will Disney even bother releasing a 3D version on home video, since only those with older sets have the technology)? Will 3D come back to newer TV sets if these films are highly successful? It was probably the first Avatar that launched the home 3D TV market in the first place.
