One could possibly be forgiven for considering, after 13 years, that an Avatar sequel would by no means see the sunshine of day. James Cameron went off did different issues; he moved to New Zealand, he experimented with farming, he may by no means have come again to motion pictures. Then he stated he was returning to make extra Avatar motion pictures — 4 of them! — however they stored getting pushed again. 12 months after 12 months, the promised sequels bought delayed time and again. Lots of people gave up hope.
Nicely, the primary of 4 potential sequels, Avatar: The Method of Water, is lastly scheduled to come back to theaters subsequent month. And one indication that this film actually is occurring this time is that it simply obtained its official ratting from the MPAA. They rated The Method of Water PG-13 “for sequences of sturdy violence and intense motion, partial nudity and a few sturdy language.”
That matches the PG-13 score that the unique Avatar obtained — though it was rated for considerably totally different causes. In that case, Cameron bought a PG-13 for “intense epic battle sequences and warfare, sensuality, language and a few smoking.”
So how do the 2 movies differ? Nicely, for one factor, you’re not going to see anybody smoking onscreen in The Method of Water. (You virtually by no means see anybody smoking in American motion pictures anymore, until it’s some sort of a interval piece, and even then, it’s uncommon.) Each motion pictures have violence, however Avatar had “epic battle sequences” whereas The Method of Water apparently solely has “sturdy violence” and “intense motion,” suggesting the set-pieces could also be slightly extra intimate (and rather less like a sci-fi warfare film) than the final time. And whereas the unique Avatar had “sensuality” this one supposedly has “partial nudity.” Make of that what you’ll.
Avatar: The Method of Water is scheduled to open in theaters on December 16.
