avatar 2 behind-the-scenes kate winslet

Another day, another goofy Avatar 2 behind-the-scenes photo. Since so much of James Cameron‘s long-awaited sequel is going to be created digitally, much of the behind-the-scenes imagery has looked rather silly, with actors in motion-capture suits floating in big water tanks. And this latest image – which features Kate Winslet posing like Dracula at the YMCA pool, is no exception.

Sigourney Weaver Avatar 2 set photos

Director James Cameron recently revealed that production on Avatar 2 is 100% complete in both live-action and motion capture filming, and Avatar 3 wasn’t too far behind. If you’re wondering what’s taking so damn long, it might be more than just the extensive post-production process and development of state-of-the-art technology. Because according to Sigourney Weaver, preparation for the shoot required cast members to train with “elite military divers” in order to allow them to hold their breath underwater for as much as six minutes, so Cameron could maximize the amount of footage he could capture in a single take.

The /Film staff has a bit of a running joke when it comes to Avatar 2 news: is the publicity team going out their way to release only the most boring images imaginable? But that’s the problem you face when the world of a film is largely digital and won’t be ready for primetime until long after the cameras have finished rolling. The other problem is that director James Cameron will hunt us down and hurt us if we joke too much.

Naturally, this means just about every glimpse of the upcoming sequel has involved puny human characters just standing around, or other actors wearing skintight motion capture suits that will eventually help transform them into alien warriors. Today’s new image is the former: here’s your first look at Edie Falco‘s new character, General Ardmore, who certainly sounds like she’s going to be a villain of some kind.

James Cameron Talks Avatar 2

Towards the end of 2019, director James Cameron said the performance capture side of both Avatar 2 and Avatar 3 had been completed. At the time, he said they were mostly done with the live-action side of production too, but they had a couple more months of work to do that would be completed in the spring. However, he wasn’t expecting the coronavirus pandemic to put a wrench in those plans, and production in New Zealand was forced to shut down a bit, resulting all the Avatar sequels being delayed.

Thankfully, James Cameron and his crew have been back at work, and now the director has provided an update saying that live-action shooting for Avatar 2 is complete, and soon they’ll be finished with live-action production for Avatar 3 as well. Read More »

Even though Avatar 2 wasn’t slated to hit theaters until December of 2021, the delays in production brought about by the coronavirus pandemic have forced James Cameron to push the movie back to December 2022 instead.
