James Cameron Hates Viewers Who ‘Whine’ About Movie Running Times, Encourages ‘Pee’ Breaks During ‘Avatar 2’

avatar Filmmaker James Cameron said it’s totally fine if you need some bladder relief during a screening of his upcoming sequel. Avatar: The Way of Water. The director also doesn’t want anyone to complain about the film’s length, noting that TV viewers have no problem slogging through several hours of episodes during a binge. However, the only difference between watching a movie and Binging TV at home is the pause button.

“I don’t want anyone whining at length sitting there binge-watching [television] for eight hours,” Cameron said Richabove slash movie. “I can almost write this part of the review. ‘The agonizingly long three-hour film…’ It’s like, give me a break. I’ve watched my kids sit and do five hour-long episodes in a row.”

Cameron later said he would love to see audiences go to the bathroom during a movie. “Here’s the big social paradigm shift that needs to happen: It’s okay to get up and go pee,” Cameron said. Of course, Cameron could urge Disney to insert a pause if he doesn’t want anyone to miss any part of the story, but he hasn’t said if he will.

Cameron hasn’t been shy about making lengthy films, which he can do since they usually turn out well. Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991) reached 137 minutes while titanic (1997) is a monumental 195 minutes. The first avatar, which returns to theaters on September 23, ran for 162 minutes on its original release. Other Hollywood blockbusters have pushed the testing limits of the human bladder like the three-hour superhero hits The Avengers: Endgame and The Batman.

Elsewhere in his interview with RichCameron surprisingly admitted he may have to give up his planned fourth and fifth avatar films to other directors. “That avatar Movies themselves are kind of all-consuming,” he said via Weekly entertainment. “I’m also developing some other exciting things that I’m developing. I think at some point – I don’t know if it’s after three or four – I want to pass the baton to a director that I trust to take over so I can do other things that interest me too. Or maybe not. I dont know.

While he may not have directed, Cameron promised he would avatar 4 will be a “corker” and a “mother” if he can make it. “But it depends on market forces. There’s three in the can, so it’ll come out anyway. I really hope we do four and five because it’s a big story at the end of the day,” he said.

Avatar: The Way of Water opens December 16, 13 years after the opening of the first film. The cast includes Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana, Sigourney Weaver, Giovani Ribisi, Michelle Yeoh, Stephen Lang, Kate Winslet and Edie Falco. avatar 3 is scheduled for December 20, 2024 and has already been filmed, Cameron said. avatar 4 is scheduled for December 2026 and avatar 5 comes two years later.
