Sam Worthington says Avatar 2 will begin shooting in October 2014

Oct. 18, 2013by: Alex Maidy

After rumors that placed filming at the end of 2013, we now have a somewhat official start date for when AVATAR 2 through 4 will begin filming. In a recent interview with an Australian radio station, AVATAR star Sam Worthington revealed that the three sequels will begin filming back to back in October 2014. That would give James Cameron just about two years before the scheduled release of AVATAR 2 in December 2016.

Filming movies back to back is hard work, especially for FX heavy movies like AVATAR and LORD OF THE RINGS. Even with THE HOBBIT trilogy, Peter Jackson had to go back for reshoots prior to the release of the second and third films. Cameron is likely to spend a lot of time perfecting the technology on the films and then a lot of time in post-production with the additional effects and the 3D.

Whether you loved AVATAR or hated it, you have to admit the films were quite spectacular visually, especially the 3D. Not many films have come close to the use of the technology and I would imagine James Cameron is not content to rest on his laurels. AVATAR 2 is going to be something unique visually and should be quite the treat when we get to see it.

There still making these movies....let me guess the next plot will center around the guy, don't remember his name, loosing the girl, don't remember her name, then getting her back and along the way saving some tribe and making the people that hate him love him. Give me my writing credit Cameron!

Can't wait. Love Avatar and it is hands down the best and only 3D movie to showcase the potential of 3D properly.

Can't WAIT to miss this!

It's just a waste. I'm sure Cameron has something else in him that's worth filming. I wish Avatar didn't make a lot of money so he would move on to that next "great project" I've loved by him before Titanic.

I wish Worthington was not coming back. He has yet to impress me in anything, he is just totally fucking bland in my opinion. And I find him irritating for some reason too. I honestly think I would have liked Avatar more without him in it.

I think the first film was alright. Overhyped, sure, but not a bad movie. James Cameron is a skilled filmmaker. It certainly wasn't the best story he could have told, but as a means of showing off the technology he had at his disposal, it works. The film does come off as pretty self-righteous and for something so hi-tech is chock-full of age-old tropes and cliches, but perhaps that is part of its charm. Something like a 7.5 out of 10.

I waited 20 years for Cameron to return to scifi so it pained me when the first one disappointed me and have no interest in any sequels

Until I see more about the sequels, I just can't get excited about these films just yet.

Yes, I admit it

I loved AVATAR.
Visually, of course, but not only...
Yes, despite all its defects and references and previsibility, I LOVED AVATAR !
And I can't wait for the next chapter(s)...

NB Yes, this is a totally useless comment...

I think I'll have to see a trailer and know a bit about the story before I get excited for this. I mean, what are they going to do with the sequel? What is there to do? I feel the first film said everything that needed to be said in this universe. I'll wait and see, but I'd much rather see Battle Angel.
