Avatar's remastered version looks 'better than' before, says James Cameron!
As we all known that Avatar which was originally released in 2009 is all set for a global re-release on September 23, 2022. The remastered version of the original movie comes out months before its sequel, Avatar: The Way of Water's arrival in December this year. The James Cameron directorial also went on to become the highest grossing of all time at box office and hence expectations are high from its sequel as well.
Recently, at the global press conference of the movie, director James Cameron was joined by the lead cast of the movie including Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana, Sigourney Weaver, Michelle Rodriguez and Stephen Lang as they discussed their experiences of working on the first movie and the massive success it went on to achieve. During the same, Cameron was also asked about his decision to re-release the movie and the difference between the original and the re-mastered version of it.
Talking about the decision to have Avatar return to theatres, the director revealed, "Well, look, I mean, it's been, you know, 12 years since the release, and so basically if you're kind of under 22 or 23 years of age, it's very, very unlikely that you've seen the film in a movie theater. Which in a way kinda means you haven't seen the film. I mean, we authored the film for the big screen, for the giant screen, in 3D. And now we've remastered it in 4K, in high-dynamic range and some 48-frame-per-second sections in the film."
