Sam Worthington has dished the dirt on what fans can expect from Avatar 2 and, boy, does it sound like a boring bag of shit.
The actor is preparing to star in Avatar 2, 3, 4 and 5 alongside writer director James Cameron and, to be honest, loaded couldn’t be less excited about a sequel if we tried.
First released back in 2009, the original movie smashed records at the box office but, stunning visuals aside, left audiences largely inspired.
A clunky script, which borrowed heavily from Dance with Wolves, Fern Gully and even The Smurfs, the original movie was also poorly cast and focused heavily on a plot concerning the pursuit of a substance that was “imaginatively” called Unobtainium.
But if you think the first one sounded bad then, wow, the second one sounds steaming pile of Na’vi turd.
Speaking to We Got This Covered, Worthington dished the dirt on what fans can expect from the next film and…boy…it…sounds…exciting?
“This is going to be Jake eight years later, and he’s got a family now. This film is going to be like nothing you’ve ever seen. The world is bigger than the first one, but essentially, it’s a movie about family,” he said.
“Jake [Worthington’s character] will still have that essence of a kid seeing the world for the first time, but he’s been living in the world for a while now, so what’s this world he’s seeing now for the first time? The film will explore that within this family dynamic.”
An Avatar family drama? Can’t wait.
In the meantime, Cameron appears to be doing his very best to set himself up for a fall, having previously slammed all of the Alien sequels that followed his 1986 effort as well as revealing his favourite Star Wars movie is The Phantom Menace.
Avatar 2 will arrive in cinemas in 2018 with sequels to follow in 2020, 2022 and 2023. Jesus.
