The budgets for James Cameron’s upcoming Avatar sequels have been revealed and they are stupendously huge which should mean they’ll be great.
The first Avatar movie was made for $237 million and that was a decade ago.
Back then, the movie was the most expensive film ever made.
It’s now been confirmed that there’s going to be an Avatar 2, Avatar 3, Avatar 4 and an Avatar 5.
Deadline has now revealed that these movies will be made for a combined budget of over $1 billion in total.
You would have thought that shooting Avatar 2 and 3 back-to-back might bring the costs down slightly.
However, it looks like these movies will still be ridiculously expensive, and Disney will be hoping that they all end up making a bucket load of money.
The budgets for the Avatar sequels are massive
It’s also been revealed that James Cameron doesn’t want to finish the fourth and fifth Avatar movies until the numbers are in for the previous two movies.
Many people seemed to have turned on Cameron’s first Avatar movie in recent years.
I remember when it first came out, people were going to the cinema on multiple occasions to watch the film.
It was pretty insane how much people seemed to love the first Avatar film.
I remember thinking it was pretty cool, but I didn’t see it again until it came out on Blu-ray.
It’ll be interesting to see what Cameron will do with these films after Avengers: Endgame broke his movie’s box office record.
