^VR headsets could be used to view them at home in 3D, and I think that's a growing market.

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.
Polls have shown the public HATES the 3D glasses.
Currently, there is a lot of research going on at electronic manufacturers' labs to come up with glassless 3D.
We should have it within 5 years, then 3D will make a comeback.
And, yes, today's 3D releases should work with the upcoming tech.

Iím not even a fan of Avatar but hope the sequels do well just so thereíll be more demand for 3D. Itís ridiculous that no current TVs can play my 500+ 3D Blu-Rays, they should have at least kept it on the biggest and most expensive TVs because if you spend over $2000 for a TV you expect it to be able to do everything. Iíve never minded the glasses, if they can make glasses-free work then great but keep making the glasses models til then.

I have one of the last 3D sets: Sony 940c.
The 3D output is just amazing.
As good as anything in a movie theater IMO.

There are several front projector models that support 3D, that's my plan. I splurged on the 55" OLED C6 for 3D support, but it's too small to be in my theater setup.

The Avatar sequels are also being shot in high frame rate 3D, which current Blu-Ray 3D can't really do. It can do 60fps at 720p resolution, but only 24fps at 1080. Would be nice if they upgraded the 4K format to be able to do 3D in high frame rate.

The Hobbit looked like hot trash in that frame rate. Disappointing if this will be the only way to see the Avatar sequels.

Yup, as smooth and detailed as the high-frame rate may have been, it looked like cheap video instead of luxurious film.

Yeah, when I went 4K a few years back, I got the LG 65UH8500, due to the fact that it included 3D. It was never a "gimmick" to me - the picture quality at home is fantastic (better than the 3D theater experience, IMO).

They'll soon have to start announcing actors who WON'T be in the movie(s).

I'm kind of surprised Arnold doesn't have a role somewhere in them.

This has also been pushed back per Disney's schedule -- one year.

Disney is going to rule the box office with these new SW/Avatar films until at least 2027.

Iíll be curious to see if the sequels do as well as the first or if the first was a right time and place kind of deal. I still donít think people are asking for this years later, but who knows.

and Cameron still has to finish part 3 and then begin work on 4 and 5.

I don't think Cameron will be making anything else after he finishes this series. I think he's locked up on these for 5-6 more years.

Which is a shame to have such a talented filmmaker wrapped in such a mediocre series for so long. Iíd love to see something in the same vein of The Terminator, Aliens, True Lies, etc. from Cameron before heís done.

I realize heís provided a lot to the art of filmmaking in other ways but I wish he would have spent more time making fun movies and a bit less time developing underwater cameras, working on CG characters, and improving 3D.

He was 43 years old in 1997 when he won everything for Titanic. Since then he's made one movie. I would have preferred to live in the alternate universe where Cameron kept making movies.

Ideally I'd also like to see Cameron move on to something else. He's only 64 and could work 10-15 more years if he wanted to.


Edit: I just saw that Avatars are scheduled through 2027.

In this regard, he is much like George Lucas ... a technician at heart. The movies and the storytelling are just means to create technology, processes, and procedures.

Fixed.

Dont get me wrong, Iíll go see the next one just because I am a movie geek. I donít believe there is any pent up demand for sequels to Avatar though. Then again, I still donít understand how it is the highest grossing film.
