We have found the best social media reactions to show how James Cameron flexed on all of Hollywood and why his Avatar franchise should continue.
Social Media Reactions Prove One Point: James Cameron Just Flexed on Hollywood
This Twitter user is amazed by Avatar: The Way of Water’s visuals. Cameron is not afraid to get his hands dirty and invent new filming techniques. In this case, it was a mixture of live-action filming underwater and performance capture that made the difference.
And there goes Cameron converting one hater after another!
We were excited to see Sigourney Weaver return to the franchise, but we were unsure if they could pull it off. This feat is rarely done well (the same actor returning to other roles in a franchise), but it looks like she did.
This Tweet hits on all levels and shows why Cameron is not a one-dimensional filmmaker.
Cameron’s newest masterpiece isn’t just for show. It looks like the character development has improved significantly since the original.
This shows that sometimes things can live up to the hype and meet everyone’s expectations. Finally, Cameron set the bar for the next sequel, and now we have no doubts he will reach it.
Everyone should be super excited that Avatar: The Way of Water is already getting rave reviews! This means we should hopefully see Cameron’s plans for three additional sequels. But, of course, it is hard to imagine what he will come up with in the next few years! So don’t wait to buy tickets if you were on the fence about seeing this sequel and have changed your mind based on these early reviews. Reports are that showings close to the release date are selling out fast.
Avatar: The Way of Water will release only in theaters on December 16, 2022.
