James Cameron Is Already Defending Avatar 2’s Long Runtime
Share this @internewscast.com



These days it’s become common practice for big movies to also be long movies. When a major tentpole release comes along, it’s expected that the movie will exceed two hours in length, it’s just a question of by how much. The original Avatar was two hours and 40 minutes long itself, and so there’s every expectation that sequel Avatar: The Way of Water probably will be too. James Cameron doesn’t deny that, but he doesn’t want to hear complaints about it.

While we don’t know how long the runtime for Avatar 2 will be, all signs point to it being on the longer side. That’s the way the last Avatar movie was. That’s how James Cameron tends to work. That’s how the current landscape is. We honestly get surprised when these movies, like Thor: Love & Thunder, aren’t super long. However, if Avatar: The Way of Water ends up being longer than Avengers: Endgame, Cameron doesn’t care and doesn’t want to hear complaints. He tells Empire (via Slashfilm) that people shouldn’t have a problem watching movies, and it’s ok for them to get up if they need to. Cameron says…

I don’t want anybody whining about length when they sit and binge-watch [television] for eight hours … I can almost write this part of the review. ‘The agonizingly long three-hour movie…’ It’s like, give me a f—ing break. I’ve watched my kids sit and do five one-hour episodes in a row. Here’s the big social paradigm shift that has to happen: it’s okay to get up and go pee.
