James Cameron is about to premiere Avatar 2. And in an interview she has returned to the old ways about what is the correct way or not to see a movie. Well, who says a movie, says the movie about him, Avatarwhich returns to theaters on the occasion of the premiere of the second part.
The filmmaker has been quite clear: if in his day (or now in the revival) you did not see Avatar in theaters, you haven’t actually seen the movie. Or at least the version of the film that James Cameron has in mind. In an interview in the New York Times, Cameron has once again brought to the table the difference between watching a movie at home or doing it in the cinema. And he is not the first, although he will not be the last.
For the director, viewers who never had the opportunity to Avatar in a movie theater, as the canons dictate, they cannot say that they have seen it. He has also ensured that the new version It is spectacular.
For James Cameron, the only correct way to see Avatar is the cinema
The interview can be read in its entirety on the NYT website, but basically, Cameron is referring to Avatar it was meant to be seen in theaters and is the only authentic way to see it. And he took the opportunity to stick out his chest regarding the remastering that it is, precisely, the one that has just hit theaters with the new rerun:
“Even if they think they’ve seen the movie, they actually haven’t. And I was pleasantly surprised, not only how well it holds up, but how beautiful it is in its remastered state.“.
On the future of cinema, Cameron bets that the streaming boom has been temporary due to the pandemic, but that thanks to the fact that the situation is normalizing, little by little Little by little, people will go to the cinema more because it is, in fact, their preference. Given the data of the rooms and the streaming, it seems that it is the other way around, but what do we know, that we like to see Avatar at home.
We have a shift towards easy access at homeY that has a lot to do with the rise of streaming in general, and the pandemic, where we literally had to risk our lives to go to the movies. people are looking forward to it.
