Film director James Cameron’s epic science fiction film Avatar premiered in 2009, and a number of critics praised the film’s Visual Effects. Avatar‘s Sequel Avatar: The Way of Water is set to make a splash on the big screen in December 2022.
However, VFX artists accused James Cameron of exploitation after repeatedly reworking the Avatar movie without paying them.
Despite this, James Cameron won an Oscar for this movie. In addition, Cameron was also honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award by the Visual Effects Society (VES) in February 2010.
James Cameron’s Alleged Misdeeds
Despite Avatar’s impressive visual effects, the people behind it have different stories. In a Twitter post, VFX artist Nick Sinnott complained about the harsh working conditions he faced on James Cameron’s Avatar 2009 film.
Nick Sinnott said on Twitter, “A fun thing about working on the VFX for Avatar was that we weren’t unionized, and (James) Cameron exploited that with endless unpaid revisions.”
However, he deleted the tweet soon after to avoid backlash.
There is no denying that Marvel has received a lot of flak because of the poor quality of the visuals in the last couple of movies they have released. According to some reports, the CGI department of the Marvel Comics Universe has been a nightmare.
Avatar: What Makes It So Special
There was a lot of praise for James Cameron’s epic science fiction film Avatar after its release in 2009, and a number of critics praised the film’s Visual Effects as among the best in the world.
This 2009 movie was acclaimed not only for its outstanding screenplay but also for its stunning visuals that drew big crowds to theatres.
Despite Pandora’s blue and tall aliens, the Navi, which are the main source of intrigue for the audience, the enticing colors and intricate designs of Pandora’s plants and animals fascinate the audience.
Avatar Sequel: Why It Took So Long
Avatar’s Sequel (Avatar: The Way of Water) is set to make a splash on the big screen in December 2022. However, it took so long to make this sequel. Multiple delays and setbacks have plagued the film, and it’s said that James Cameron needed the right technology to film motion capture underwater.
Cameron has confirmed that 13 years of waiting will be worth it, and we can expect three more films in 2024, 2026, and 2028.
Fans are even encouraged to see the remastered version in the theatre because James Cameron has urged them to do so.
Avatar: The Way of Water comes out on 16 December 2022.
