Cameron on the Avatar Sequels: \’You Will Sh*t Yourself\’


AvatarWe’ve known James Cameron is aiming high for the three Avatar sequels, but exactly how high will that be?

In an interview with Empire, Cameron revealed that the sequels will be in the 48fps HFR format and they’ll cause your body to do something:

“I can tell you one thing about them,” Cameron laughs when Empire nonchalantly enquiries about storylines. “They’re gonna be bitchin’. You will shit yourself with your mouth wide open.”

Despite early rumours of a move to 60 frames per second, 48 is Cameron’s choice of frame rate for the sequels. “My thinking at the time was that 60 [FPS] might be a better segue to the video market,” he says. “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.”

I guess you’d better bring an extra pair of underwear with you to the theater in December of 2016.
