The 13-year-long wait for Avatar fans will come to an end next week as the sequel to the highest grossing movie of all time opens in Philippine cinemas on December 14.
Avatar: The Way of Water boasts a 3 hours and 12 minutes runtime, mesmerizing audiences as it dives deeper into the world of Pandora with Jake Sully (Sam Worthington) and Neytiri (Zoe Saldana), this time with their children, set a decade after the first film’s events.
As they settle on the planet of Pandora, a familiar threat returns to finish what their family started, bringing Jake and Neytiri together with the army of the Na’vi race to protect their home, encountering Kate Winslet’s aquatic Metkayina clan along the storyline.
The 350 million dollar film had its world premiere in London on Tuesday, which saw Director James Cameron, Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldaña, Sigourney Weaver and Kate Winslet walk the blue carpet in Leicester Square along with the new cast members.
“This was a labor of love spread out over a decade, so it’s great to finally be able share it,” Worthington told Reuters.
“This is a heart-wrenching story, it’s mighty, it’s very powerful, you hope that it connects (with audiences) but it’s not just the carbon copy of the first one, we’ve really expanded the world, we’ve expanded this family unit,” he added.
Just days after its world premiere, the much-awaited sequel has already received recognition as it won the National Board of Review Award for Top 10 Films of the Year.
