As we all know that one of the most anticipated Hollywood movie, ‘Avatar’ is a very successful movie of all time. Avatar’s success can be attributed to a number of distinct elements. First and foremost, it was a spectacular leap forward in 3D technology and effects, resulting in a fantastic in-theatre experience unlike anything audiences had seen in many years.
But did you know that Avatar movie is the most expensive movie produced of all time? Yes, it is. So, read below to know the complete details about the Hollywood movie.
Avatar (the USA, 2009), with a production budget of $425 million (£261.3 million), is the most expensive movie ever made, according to The-Numbers. Director James Cameron (Canada) used the revolutionary “Reality Camera System” in the sci-fi epic. Avatar went on to make $2.78 billion (£1.79 billion) at the worldwide box office, making it the highest-grossing movie of all time.
With $150 million spent only on marketing and promotion, Avatar is the most expensive film ever filmed. The most costly items were new filmmaking techniques and visuals, as well as the development of a new language, which required the hire of a linguist.
The synopsis of the Avatar film, The Na’vi dwell on Pandora’s beautiful alien continent, where they look primitive yet are highly advanced. Because the planet’s atmosphere is toxic, human/Na’vi hybrids known as Avatars must link their thoughts to human minds in order to roam freely on Pandora. Through one of these Avatars, Jake Sully (Sam Worthington), a crippled former Marine, regains mobility and falls in love with a Na’vi lady (Zoe Saldana). He is dragged into a struggle for her world’s existence as his relationship with her gets stronger.
It’s taken a long time, but James Cameron’s Avatar sequels are finally nearing completion. The filmmaker recently announced that Avatar 2 filming is “complete” and Avatar 3 filming is “95 per cent” complete.
Cameron gave an update on the follow-up movie to the 2009 hit during a Zoom conversation with Arnold Schwarzenegger ahead of the 2020 Austrian World Summit.
