‘Star Wars: Episode VIII’ Release Date Shifts to December 2017

ARE YOU READY FOR THE GREATEST SHITSTORM OF OUR LIFETIME?
>>
Hiro will make a star wars quarantine board by then so its fine

>shitstorm
Not really.
If you asked a normie what they would rather see, they'd say Star Wars.
>>
Avatar was a fad, the second one's not even going to be close unless Cameron remembers how to make a sequel and goes T2/Aliens mode with it.
>>
Avatar 2 is 10 days later

Disney knows SW will drop off like a sack of bricks after a couple of weeks anyway
>>
>>65118569
Memeron will loose.

Avatar was an anomaly. No one even remembers it now. No one even remembers what rewards it got.

EVERYONE knows about Star Wars.
>>
>>65118705

Is there really an interest in Avatar anymore?

>>65118755
There is always an interest in extremely visually impressive action movies that put IMAX and 3D to full use because they were actually filmed in IMAX and 3D, rather than upscaled/converted in post.

>James Cameron breaking the box office is a fad

It happens really often to be a fad

Le stern James Cameron scolding you underwater face
>>
>>65118755
I saw the first one twice because the 3D was a fun experience, but even during the first watch i knew that was all the movie had going for it.

I don't want to doubt cameron but i really wish he was working on something new. Like battle angel rather than a sequel to a gimmick movie.

3D shtick and the ''100% CGI innovation from the mastermind of Terminator and Aliens'' thing going for it.

Plus, 2009 was a shit year.
No capeshit, no Starshit. Some vidyashit.

Literally dullest year of 00`s.

>>65118569

Avatar 2 will make SW 8 look like a made for HBO movie. Cameron is still the only man in HW who knows how to use 3D IMAX properly. SW8 will have bigger hype, but Avatar 2 will blow peoples minds, just like all Camerons stuff does. Tortoise > Hare

Reposting again, interview with Jim from mid december:

>“We have design more or less finished, which is an enormous task. It’s been about a two-year task. [We’ve finished] all the creatures and the landscapes, and the new worlds within the world of Pandora that you see. The writing is ongoing, but almost finished. Technical development is done. Stages are done. Infrastructure. So we’re really poised to start after the first of the year.”

It isnt really Cherrypicking as I just went to worldwide grosses, and went to % of total foreign gross. I left a few out. The Last Samurai, Ice Age 3 & 4, Babe, The Chronicles of Narnia 2, The Tourist, Exodus, Robocop (2014), The Golden Compass, The Penguins of Madagascar, The Fifth Element, Gullivers Travels, The Hobbit 2 & 3, Maze Runner 2, Edge of Tomorrow, Prince of Persia, John Carter, Dracula Untold, Rio 2, The Mummy 3, Troy, King Arthir and Puss in Boots.

Thats all of em. Every single American movie with a higher % of foreign gross than Avatar.

The Last Samurai and the Fifth Element are the only ones that pretty much don't suck.

Exactly.

Same date as Speilberg's Ready Player One, and ten days before Avatar 2. Disney knows they can move Star Wars wherever they want it, and the world will shift to accommodate them.

Regardless of what your opinion is on the movie, can we agree that the final battle is among the best grand-scale sci-fi action of all time, if not the best? The cinematography, the pacing, the visuals, the suspense, the cool gunships, the editing... everything was fantastic. No quick cuts, no shaky cam, no extreme close-ups. Fluid camera motions and a great eye for what the audience needs and wants to see and how to orchestrate it. Cameron knows how to deliver action

No, this is bullshit. Avatar was a success cause it was the first really huge 3D movie and pushed the limits of technology of its time.

Why would he need tricks up his sleeve? He has an entire alien sci-fi world at his disposal and can make up whatever he wants and give the audience awesome new things. I trust him to deliver, even if it's just for the best grand-scale sci-fi action of all time.
>>
There was no way TFA was going to beat Avatar. Avatar literally transported you to a different world. Pandara was beautiful to watch in theaters. Also the action was very satisfying, the film was a complete spectacle. It felt grand.

The Force Awakens is the complete opposite. It felt like a watered down action film with Marvel Solo film sensibilities. It was essentially a two hour trailer for Episode 8.

Avatar 2 will be more worth the 8 year wait than The Force Awakens' 30 year wait for Return of the Jedi.

Cameron is crazy talented, but his two biggest movies were far from being his best.
Titanic ain't bad, but I never understood the crazy when it came out. It seemed all its money was made from women and girls going to see it five times or more.
And Avatar was just plain flat and boring, and hinged completely on 3d.

Logic would be that Avatar 2 is going to make a quarter or so of what the first made (which wouldn't be a bad number if the movie costs 200-300 millions) since 3d appeal is dead and nobody cares anymore about Avatar today.

But, we'll, crazy Jim might have something up his sleeve. Never underestimate him...

No it can't though. TFA is just a continuation of a hugely popular and successful pop-culture icon spanning three-fucking-decades.

Avatar was a film dependant on a 3D gimmick, then disappeared into obscurity leaving no indelible mark on anything of the the bank balance of Cameron, his chums and 20th Century Fox.

Neither of you know shit about Avatar 2, so you're both wrong for the time being.

Avatar has a Cirque De Soleii show, and is getting a Disney theme world, so its a complete falsehood to say its been forgotten. Also, it is fucking pathetic to doubt the Starwars franchise continued success, but it is EQUALLY pathetic to say Avatar and Starwars have remotely comparable starting points too (not that its cultural value mattered anywhere but America...).

The script rewriterumors sound bad for Ep 8 and the fact Ep 8 is releasing BEFORE A2 tells you everything you need to know about what Disney is thinking.

This gives Jim Cam and Tarantino something in common.

Watch Fox lose their shit because Disney will basically try and fucking screw Avatar 2's theatrical screenings in all the 3D cinemas and Imax's.

>>65134571
Titanic is universally and enduringly popular and remembered, is the most successful film of the past half-century bar NONE, and is probably the most iconic film of the last 2 decades. TFA will be forgotten in 6 months.

A TFA rerelease would make $80m at most in the US and $50m everywhere else.
>>
>>65134372
>Please accept that your manchild franchise isn't as beloved in the rest of the world as in the US or the UK.

It's grossed over $1bn overseas alone without the UK. It's made shit loads in Australia and Europe and done preddy gud in South America.

You mistake the cinema-going public's interest in heavily promoted gimmicks like 3D as a genuine interest in Avatar itself, when it has become very clear that Avatar simply failed at grasping the public's imagination and interest as something like Star Wars managed, hence why it failed to establish itself within popular culture and pretty much disappeared without a trace other than a remarkable box office showing.

>>65134571
I disagree. Titanic rode the wave of 3D when it was released, which is why it added a sizeable chunk to its total gross. Why would there be any need to re-release TFA any time soon? Rogue One is out next year, Ep VIII the year after that. If it were, it would be a nominal taking at best.

BNTH is pretty iconic, I'd put it above SVP when there's many WW2 movies and Gladiator which was pretty much Braveheart in Rome. Toy Story is for kids and has sequels and Fight Club is considered overrated by even Fincher fans.

Yet it still stands and it sits up there with Star Wars, SoM, Titanic, Jaws and ET. TFA will likely break $2bn come the end of its run, and that will be a job well done for Disney, They've successfully delivered a critical and commercial reboot of a popular franchise.

Because other than most of todays celebrities, James is an actual role model who worked hard to get where he is today. It's nice to see him succeed. It's nice to see that he's just doing whatever the fuck he wants now, and it's funny to see that people still underestimate him.

So when is Avatar 2 starting production? Episode 8 starts production in a few weeks. Are we still pretending Avatar will be released in 2017? Do you really think Disney made the move assuming Cameron wasn't going to be delaying the release?

Even if they did end up competing, neither would "demolish" shit. It'd guarantee that neither break any total gross records.

And Disney's investment has unambiguously been to their benefit.

Nice try though, Avatard.

What a burn.

I was 19 when I saw Avatar, and had been hyped since 2006. He made Aliens and T2, son. 2 biggest box office records, and only beat by a movie that was out for 10 years. The only person who can beat Cameron is Cameron.

Only redditors and teenagers who didn't see Avatar in theaters doubt Cameron and talk shit. I wish he'd go straight to Battle Angel Alita but I'll take what I can get, fuck you poorfags who see video files on small screens and complain about it looking like shit. Name one movie that has surpassed it in effects recently.

I love how desperate Avatards are to inexplicably defend China and Chinese film tastes as a way to defend Jimbo and talk shit about Star Wars. Maybe I'm just an asshole, but I prefer movies made for my culture, and not cynically designed to pander to foreign markets. You know who wasn't the bad guy in Star Wars? A literal American GI Joe caricature.

If 2/3rd of your value is determined by how much the ching chongs like it, it's a shitty fucking movie. Realistically, Avatar 2 isn't going to be competing against TFA in America, it's going to be competing against 7fast7furious in fucking China. What a great film.

Literally everyone saw Avatar in the theaters you wannabe oldfag. And people don't doubt Cameron, they doubt fucking Avatar. It was a forgettable color-by-numbers movie with no characters we give a shit about.

People went to that movie for the gimmick. And as a result, every movie since copied the fucking gimmick, and now nobody gives a shit about the fucking gimmick.

My brother who is 12 is a redditor and talked shit on Cameron until I showed him T2 and Aliens. Hadn't seen them before and didn't talk shit afterwards. And it's clearly a pro-nature film, not an anti-american one. The bluray (which I bought on that day) was released on earth day, can't get more obvious than that. I'm sorry that you were too young for your parents to take you to see it in 3D, but at some point you just have to be objective and not a whiny teenager.
>>
>>65141127
You're telling me in 7 years nothing has beat it effects-wise? Cameron developed new technologies in order to make his vision, and he's known for pushing the envelope in effects and action. Again, name one movie that has surpassed it in scope or effects since it was released. 2012 looks like a PS2 prerendered FF cutscene, yet Avatar still holds up. Praise be to Cameron and his works, and let Him drive these teenage redditors off this board.

The Hobbit movies look like video game cutscenes and the last one came out last year iirc. Avatar still hasn't been topped visually or scope-wise since then.

>And it's clearly a pro-nature film, not an anti-american one.
Kek. For one thing, a movie can be two things. But more to the point:
>2009.
>Peak of "people are getting real sick of this Iraq shit" hivemind.
>Makes movie where American stereotype businessmen invade a sovereign, tribal people and exploit them for their resources.
>Main bad guy might well have been named Sgt. Ame Rica.
>White American hero who was crippled by his own people is a literal race trader. He's a hero because he turns into one of the tribal anti-American rebels.
$2 Billion foreign box office.

>I'm sorry that you were too young for your parents to take you to see it in 3D
Kek. I was 23 when Avatar came out. I saw it in 3D on an IMAX screen. Nobody's arguing it didn't look neat with the uncomfortable goggles on. The point is that LOOKING NEAT WAS ALL IT WAS. It was an amusement park ride.

Nice nonsense ad hominem btw. What are you some uppity undergrad?

Was unaware the hobbit movies were MOST of the movies that came out since 2009. Fun fact I guess.

And yeah, Avatar TOTALLY didn't look like a videogame.

None of the mo-cap is as impressive as what Andy Serkis' company is doing. Other companies have done better flying dragon bullshit. Fucking Gareth Edwards made better monsters with $30 dollars than Cameron did with $300 million. Literally the only thing that Cameron did that people haven't been super interested in copying is the amount of depth he created. He developed fancy, expensive 2-lens cameras that were replaced by better 1-lens cameras within years. Most of the innovations he brought to the industry lasted about as long as the bullet-time rig the Wachowski's innovated in Matrix.

Laughing my fucking ass off here. We'll see how much "diversity" is in Episode 9 after the extra costs all this reshooting is going to be.

Movie will make right around ~$2 billion, but i-i-it didn't make billions in China! The Chinese are racist, not me! Just because I endless shit post about that one black guy and keep racist maymays about it saved on my computer doesn't mean I'm not validated because that space fantasy franchise that the Chinese never liked did about as well as it was projected to. How stupid was Disney for not pandering to the Chinese enough! Finn obviously should have been Jackie Chan.
