EXCLUSIVE VIDEO: James Cameron Talks ‘Avatar’ Re-release, ‘Avatar’ Sequels, ‘Titanic 3D’ and More!

We recently had a chance to speak with James Cameron to discuss the re-release of Avatar, it's additional footage and why it was cut in the first place.

We also got a chance to speak to the director about:

  • What he thinks of the people that absolutely despise Avatar

    - The ridiculous allegations from people online that think he's re-releasing this to "make more money"

    - Editing his own films

    - What he thinks about the upcoming Ridley Scott Untitled Alien Prequel

    - Doing prequels to his own movies like The Abyss

    - Titanic 3D coming to theaters

    - Directing a real-life version of Aquaman (like he did on HBO's Entourage)

    - The inevitable Avatar 2 and Avatar 3, which he plans to shoot back-to-back

It's no wonder why director James Cameron is "the king of the world." His extremely popular 1997 film Titanic not only won an Oscar for best picture but it also earned over $1 billion worldwide. While many critics didn't think Cameron would ever be able to repeat the success of that film he proved them wrong by returning last year with the 3D space-odyssey Avatar, which has gone on to break all of Titanic's records and earn over $2 billion worldwide. Now Cameron is inviting audiences to return to Pandora once again with a special re-release of his popular 3D film, Avatar, which opens in theaters on August 27th and now features nine-minutes of additional footage not seen in the original cut.

Avatar was released December 18th, 2009.

Titanic was released December 19th, 1997.

Avatar 2 comes to theaters November 2017.

Avatar 3 comes to theaters November 2018.

          @Daveactor7, you don't mean Namor as a villain for Aquaman, do you? He's Aquaman's Marvel counterpart, and therefore will never be on-screen with him. If you mean that Namor would just be an intriguing bad guy in his own movie, then that would be something along the lines of awesome.

            @ejk1 yeah i totally agree. Except Namor would be a much intriguing bad guy

              @Daveactor7, you know how it would go. Eco-terrorists would dump radioactive waste into the ocean, Aquaman fights back. That is lame. Use intrigue from Atlantis, and an enemy like Black Manta.

                  Leonardo Dicaprio is a perfect choice for aquaman.

                        @slysnide Then you completely misrepresent yourself. It's time for you to shut your mouth.

                          @ElmStreet: The columns like Boos/whoop doos and such dumbass. Not the hard factual stories. Have you not been paying attention? Everyone knows of simple grammatical errors which don't matter, hence why I was referencing those types of news stories, and not the average run of the mill ones that you see everyday.

                              @Sly: I know, but yes, the way I presented the argument looked like I was talking about typos, grammar, whatever. My bad. Should have been more specific.

                              @Brian and @CBF: True that.

                                @comicbookfan From time to time is right. NOT all the time like these other clowns are claiming.

                                  Dude did I read that right? James Cameron directing Aquaman? SAH-WEET!! I just KNEW Entourage was something special... Time for me to watch these clips now. Medellin would be a cool movie too, an epic gangster flick about Pablo Escobar? Come on Hollywood, Entourage has some great ideas for movies...

                                  @Slysnide I agree.

                                  @Elm-Street. Dude. MW DOES edit news stories. I've seen it happen 100 times in my time here. Not that it's a bad thing, it's just editing, but yes, they do do it from time to time.

                                      Really @narrator? MW changes content after they post it? Glad to know you subscribe to that.

                                        @Elm_Street, Sly's comment makes perfect sense. Re-read it, and if you still don't get it, then we'll know whats wrong here.

                                          I'd like an Aquaman movie centering on life in Atlantis, instead of Aquaman vs terrorists from the land. What about you?
