Avatar: The Way of Water Sure is Something
What are we supposed to make out of Avatar: The Way of Water? It’s often been remarked that the first Avatar film, despite being the highest grossing movie of all time, has absolutely zero cultural impact. We all recognize those tall, blue aliens, but do they mean anything to us? Do we remember any of their names? Or their lore? I think their only real impact was kicking off an era of horrible, forced 3D in movies.
Will The Way of Water lead to a resurgence of that horror? I guess we’ll find out!
The trailer looks great, so at least there’s that. But then I’m a dummy who can’t really tell the difference between very good CGI and great CGI. So yeah, it all looks great. It all looks pretty. But we don’t really know the story yet. Is it going to be as predictable and done-before as the first Avatar movie? Are the water Na’vi gonna be able to carry a movie?
We’ll find out when Avatar: The Way of Water comes to theaters on Dec. 16.
