James Cameron opened a new chapter on the scenes of our lives and presented us the best movie ever made. Not only its visual effects but by also its story, by reminding us the beautiful values of us that we have been disregarding most of the times. While we are developing the devices of communication faster than before, we are breaking our ties with each other unexpectedly.
So, this movie, I guess, is the best not only with its scenes but also with its story. Titanic was also another revolution that nobody would have dare to create, just like Avatar. James Cameron didn’t surprise us by this new revolution, Avatar, but still our eyes cannot believe how something this much amazing can be created by a human, with over-human dreaming and efforts. 3-D visuality, from now on, I think will be asked more by audiences and stories of movies will be created accordingly.
The film was released in traditional 2-D, as well as in 3-D, using the RealD 3D, Dolby 3D, and IMAX 3D formats. Avatar is officially budgeted at $237 million; other estimates put the cost at $280–310 million to produce and $150 million for marketing. The film is being touted as a breakthrough in terms of filmmaking technology, for its development of 3D viewing and stereoscopic filmmaking with cameras that were specially designed for the film’s production.
Avatar premiered in London on December 10, 2009, and was released on December 18, 2009, in North America to critical acclaim and commercial success. It grossed $27 million on its opening day domestically (in the United States and Canada) and $77 million domestically on its opening weekend. It opened two days earlier internationally and grossed $232 million worldwide in its first five days of international release. Within three weeks of its release, it had grossed over $1 billion worldwide. It currently stands as the second-highest-grossing film of all time, exceeded only by Titanic. Due to the film’s success, Cameron reported the possibility of two sequels.
