James Cameron's Avatar 2 delayed yet again


And no one really cares

Looks like that Avatar sequel James Cameron has been working on for years is getting pushed back yet again. This is not a repeat from the last few years.

Avatar 2 was unofficially slated for a Christmas 2017 release after a previous delay, but as of now there is no new release date planned. According to /Film, Cameron wants to get all three of his planned Avatar sequels finished and release them annually. (I'm estimating a release date of 2039 at this point.)

While Avatar is still the biggest moneymaker of all time, the film's lasting legacy is just a high perch in box office tallies and technical kudos. Culturally it's not Star Wars or Lord of the Rings, and by that I mean you didn't have a generation of children growing up and aspiring to be the heroes in Avatar. I mean, who played Avatar on the playground? Who would want to be that bland lead guy or that tall blue love interest woman? It wasn't a bad movie at all, but people remember the 3D spectacle, not the story or its characters.

On the note of Star Wars, Avatar 2's delay means it won't have to compete against the rescheduled Star Wars Episode VIII.

What do you think about the Avatar 2 delay? Do you even care about Avatar anymore?
