Ava­tar“ star­tet the 3D-Buzz in cine­mas all over the world and is still one of the most suc­cess­ful movies of all time. James Came­ron is thin­king about High Frame Rate (HRF) and Cinema 4K reso­lu­tion for the three sequels.

At the end there will be four Ava­tar movies. Many fans of the Ava­tar-uni­verse are hyped for the sequels and can’t wait to see how Came­ron will change the way we watch movies once again. The pre­pa­ra­ti­ons for the shoo­ting are in full swing and James Came­ron is alre­ady thin­king about tech­ni­cal ways to make his vision more rea­li­s­tic to the audi­ence.

James Came­ron: „We are still at the begin­ning. We are desi­gning the soft­ware, I’m wri­ting screen­plays, we are plan­ning all crea­tures, cha­rac­ters, envi­ron­ments. At the moment I’m not turning any­thing, we are in the crea­tive phase that will lead us to that. And it’s going really well, I think the movie will be truly spec­ta­cu­lar. You will see new worlds, new habi­tats, new cul­tures. There will always be the main con­flict bet­ween the point of view of the human domi­na­tion of nature and the Na’vi being inte­gra­ted with it, it will mani­fest its­elf in many dif­fe­rent ways.“

Shooting in Cinema 4K resolution

Came­ron thinks about shoo­ting large parts of the movie in High Frame Rate (HFR). With HFR record­ing there are 48 frames per second ins­tead of the usual 24. This ensu­res more flo­wing move­ments, espe­cially in action-packed sce­nes. It is clear that Came­ron wants to shoot in 4K, which is alre­ady sup­por­ted by many movie thea­ters. Big cinema chains have chan­ged for some time com­ple­tely to digi­tal 4K sys­tems. In addi­tion, the sequels are defi­ni­tely in 3D in thea­ters. In this case, the reso­lu­tion would „shrink“ to 2K. Maybe there will be 4K 3D when the the first sequel comes out.

Cost of over $ 1 Billion for all 3 Sequels

Once the tech­ni­cal requi­re­ments for the new movies are crea­ted, Came­ron wants to shoot part 2, 3 and 4 of Ava­tar in one piece. This is to save money and ner­ves. The total cost for the shoo­ting would amount to over $ 1 bil­lion! It’s actually not that much money, if you assume that the first Ava­tar movie has alre­ady cost 500 mil­lion euros.

James Came­ron: „We look at high frame rate. I deal with it. So far I have not made a deci­sion as to whe­ther the ent­ire movie is shot in HFR, or just parts of it. We will now move with a natu­ral reso­lu­tion of 4K and when the film appears there should alre­ady be a lot of thea­ters that sup­port it. „
