'Avatar' Sequels To Let Sam Worthington Plod Through Underwater Performance

April 8, 2013 / avatar, james cameron, jon landau, movie, news

James Cameron's loves of the deep sea and motion-capture cat people will reportedly at last come together in a big blue puddle for the Avatar sequels, Deadline reports. Speaking at the 2013 NAB Technology Summit on Cinema yesterday, producer Jon Landau revealed Cameron will once again lean on technology innovation to make up for sort of bland storytelling, and will now "do performance capture in water." Apparently they couldn't do that before, but now they will do that--maybe with waterproof spandex or something. In truth, they don't actually know exactly how they'll do it yet, but are said to be "currently exploring technologies to allow for underwater capture of actors' performances." Their experiments have thus far drowned five test Worthingtons.

Is it ok for me to laugh at the people who said the first one was about setting up the world and the sequels would have more storytelling in them yet?

I think you'd need to wait to actually hear the new movie's plot before yelling at it for not having a story. How many legs does the seahorse need to make you satisfied?

If it is even remotely recognizable as a Sea Horse he already fucked up regardless of how many legs it has.

Avatar is a lot better when you stop paying attention to the story and start paying attention to the direction and technological innovations. I can appreciate them for that the same way I appreciate schlocky action films.

So everyone saw the first movie because technology. But who actually liked it?

Nevermind. People are cunts. They'll be lining up for miles to see Pocahontas: The Abyss.

You do realize we've been doing this for 8 years already, right?

How time flies. And I thought we did Fred Claus last December.
NeonTaster and I will go on without you if you ever find you're too good for us. We may even write a book together. "Liddy Used to Rule: The Rise and Fall of The Internet's Mightiest Triumvirate."

Wouldn't Liddy Ruled be a less cumbersome title?

And I never said it was me pulling the trigger. Do you think NeonTaster wants to be doing this four years from now? He didn't even want to be doing this four days ago!

I like cumbersome book titles, but I'll defer to Neon.

Neon will snap out of it. I have faith. Maybe if you threw him a like it may help him get his mojo back. It certainly worked for me.

I liked it. I didn't think it was ZOMG AWESOMESAUCE! But I enjoyed seeing Pocahontas told in a slightly different way.

Personally It was probably my favorite Cameron movie since Aliens. But when I think about it, that's not really saying anything other than I hate Abyss, T2 and True Lies a lot more then Avatar.

The Abyss was a really good movie. Watch the director's cut.

You liked this piece of garbage more than T2? You have to be trolling. Have to be.

Hell, all three of those movies were better than Avatar.

But you're right. T2? One of the best science fiction movies ever made? And he likes Avacunt more?

And I will not accept the excuse that T2 has time travel plot holes. I can punch GIANT holes in Avatar's plot. For example, why would a peaceful society living in total harmony with their superorganism planet evolve a culture of tribal warriors with militaristic skills essential for right of passage?

I honestly don't know the answer to this question - were the Navi vegetarian? If not, they'd need some skills to hunt.

I thought the plot was that they were just simple hunters, and somehow Sam Worthington turned them all into warriors with a carefully constructed battle plan, which is even more preposterous if you think about it.
