While nobody was looking, Dark Horse started producing Avatar comic books starting this year.



Gotta say, did not expect the lore to include Giant Big-Head Men.

I think it's a great idea to just keep releasing the movie you've already got rather than make a new movie and disappointing everyone.

Instead of being paraplegic, Jake Sully has now been crucified and in all of his scenes walks around with a cross still nailed to his hands.

I think that you shouldn't be allowed to re-release the film and then add the money you earned from it onto your old release money unless you haven't yet spent any of the first releases revenue.

This would probably move Gone With the Wind down from the "adjusted for inflation" top spot and we can't have that.

I don't know why but that particular shot of the sexy cat man, among the many common avatar screencaps, really fuckin sets off my uncanny valley vibes.

In 2035 we're gonna be walking through the holo-theater past Avatar, Avatar 2, Avengers Infinty-Endgame Double Feature, Goldeneye Rerelease and then we'll finally get to the screen way in the back of the hall where sometimes we see new movies.

I think the only hope that it shatters more box office records than avatar 1 is if they double or even triple down on horny.

quote:

“When I sat down to write the sequels, I knew there were going to be three at the time and eventually it turned into four, I put together a group of writers and said, ‘I don’t want to hear anybody’s new ideas or anyone’s pitches until we have spent some time figuring out what worked on the first film, what connected, and why it worked,'” Cameron continued. “They kept wanting to talk about the new stories. I said, ‘We aren’t doing that yet.’ Eventually I had to threaten to fire them all because they were doing what writers do, which is to try and create new stories. I said, ‘We need to understand what the connection was and protect it, protect that ember and that flame.'”

Narrator: The connection was horny blue cats

It is going to receive an NC-17 rating for unsimulated, motion-captured penetration.

Everything is subject to the needs of intelligence, for geniuses like me. If we actually solve problems, people won't need me and people like me, and this is a travesty without end. You have to squeeze the poor so they know their place, and you fucking commies forget that.



I guess all things being equal, James is at least honest that he's always been a money guy first and a filmmaker second.
