Now before anything starts, let us first brief you regarding the topic, because Avatar, isn’t a recent release of 2022, it is actually a 2009 movie and slowly under the direction of James Cameron it is turning into a franchise as more and more movie plans are being added for future releases and 2022 will mark the release of the second movie on our list. The first movie of Avatar that came out in the year 2009, is just not any random movie but is one of the best science fiction, and fantasy genre movies that we have ever seen, economically, it is also the highest grossing film of all time, which is a big fact as this article concentrates on some finance stuff.
Some other stuff that you should also know is who James Cameron is, James Cameron is the director of the Avatar film which came out in 2009, and following that he is set to make other movies of the franchise. If you have heard of the movie titanic, which mostly all of us have heard, one very less known fact is that it is actually directed by James Cameron and the world-famous transformers series, is also one of his works. So, by this time we do realize the scale of his works, and other than that, we must also understand, how much he has made from these world-famous blockbuster hits. Another thing regarding this movie that we have to tell you is that James Cameron has made tons of movies from these movies, however, Avatar isn’t still the one that made him the most on the list, and there are many other big names. James Cameron is really one of the richest directors in the industry right now, however, there are also some other notable names, that give him great competition.
Now other than this let us brief you a bit about the reviews and the ratings the Avatar show has received from the time of its release, Avatar has slowly been decided to be converted into a franchise instead of just a trilogy or something. The movie covers the story of a futuristic world, where the world conditions have gone down and there is an existence of a human-like creature who is known as Navi, and they are blue-skinned, immune to a typical kind of poisonous gas, very tall, and the scientist from the earth, to know more about them have created hybrids who look just like the Navi and sent them to their world. Then the story faces many twists and turns and overall, it is a great story that has already given the setting of a different universe. The critic’s comment regarding this movie has been excellent and it has been considered a masterpiece by many. The IMDb ratings of the show are also a 7.8 which may seem less but is actually very good based on the genre it belongs to. Overall, the only thing that we can say regarding this show is that it is a great watch.
Now coming to the main topic of this article, we already know that James Cameron has got his name on the lists of some of the richest direct out there, and one of the most heard rumours is that, Avatar has contributed the most to his net worth, more than any other movie. However, unfortunately, that’s not true, and there are many of his other creations of his, which have contributed huge sums of money to his wealth. Other than that, it’s also true that James Cameron made a lot of money from Avatar, and to know more and the exact amount does continue reading this article till the end.
James Cameron Earning From Avatar
Now one thing that has been rumoured a lot is regarding the earning of James Cameron from Avatar, and how that has contributed the most to his net worth. Now in the previous statement, we have already told, that other creations have topped the mark when it comes to contributing to his net worth and when it comes to Avatar, which has also earned a huge amount of 2.847 billion just with a budget of 237 million, we just see money bills flying over the head of James Cameron.
However, James wasn’t quite greedy and stuff and after dividing all profits with the other partners, investors, and the studios, he kept for himself nearly a 10 per cent cut of the film according to some sources which ends up being near 250 million dollars, however, we can’t confirm anything, because nothing has been revealed by any legitimate sources or the man himself. The only thing that we know is that James Cameron who has got a net worth of nearly 700 million dollars or more, has been profitable in everything he has done so far in his career, and he is set to earn some other big bucks with the release of the second Avatar movie this year and the other which have been scheduled for 2024 and coming years. There have been other rumours too, that state that James has walked away from the film with more than 350 million dollars, but based on all sources and what we have studied till now, we can state that it’s just a false assumption and nothing of that sort has been stated by any trusted sources.
Avatar Release Dates
Now coming to the release dates of one of the biggest fantasy and science fiction genre movies of all time. The first movie of Avatar came out in the year 2009 and that was just a blockbuster hit, as we have already mentioned. Now after nearly 10 years James Cameron is all ready to release the second movie and convert Avatar from a single movie to a franchise. the second movie will make its release on the 16th of December 2022. There are also other movies from the list that have been mentioned by the makers which include, Avatar 3 which will supposedly make its release in the year 2024, though the date is just an assumption and there may be a delay or something in the release. Then we also find Avatar 4 and Avatar 4 scheduled for 2026 and 2028 respectively and these plans are completely made by James Cameron so we can expect him only to be the director of the coming movies, and maybe this will end up being one of the biggest hits of all time, so the audience just needs to clench on their seats and be ready to be a part of the Avatar journey.
From what we have seen the writer of the Avatar franchise is set to create a completely different universe in which both the Navi and, both the humans exist but both of them have their own places. The setting of the story is in 2154 and the natural resources of the earth have all depleted, there is some kind of poisonous gas covering the whole atmosphere of pandora which is a fictional moon of fictional planets where the human resource departments are mining a certain kind of mineral for energy and on that planet immune to the poisonous gas live the Navi, a creature with great height and blue skin and they have complete harmony with the nature. Now the earth scientist has decided that they want to discover more about the universe in which these Navi live and so they have made some human hybrids with Navi genes and named them Avatars who get into the Navi territory bring out information about what goes in their planet. While doing all this one of the Avatars who was the head of the program faces some unexpected adventure and is introduced to the Navi society, however the human research centres who have mainly initiated this operation have got other plans regarding pandora. Now the new movies that will release soon will mainly have the same setting as this story and this is the main universe that exists.
