James Cameron is filming Avatar 2 as well as the following two films in the series. The gold standard for movies has been set at 24 frames per seconds and, in 2012, Peter Jackson tried to push the envelope by filming The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey in 48 fps. The clarity that the higher frame rate holds is absolutely astounding, though it’s often criticized for its less cinematic feel.
The decision is bound to create some controversy. There is also a chance that Cameron could be filming at 60 frames or more with the upcoming sequels. “My thinking at the time was that 60 [FPS] might be a better segue to the video market,” Cameron said. “I’ll be plugging into a system that’s a little more mature, so it makes sense for me to do 48 frames at this point.”
We don’t know the plot for upcoming films, but you can be sure that Cameron has it under control. He previously boasted that his movies will be amazing, or in his words, “They’re gonna be bitchin’. You will sh*t yourself with your mouth wide open.”
Avatar 2 will be in theaters on Christmas Day 2016 and continues the storyline of the 2009 original film. The original cast will be returning: Zoe Saldana, Sigourney Weaver, Sam Worthington and Stephen Lang. Joely Richardson is rumored to be an addition to the cast.
