Avatar 2: Now With More Deep Sea.

I was not one of the fans of Avatar.  I wasn’t even close.  In fact the movie, more specifically the plot and dialogue, made me nauseous.  But now I am probably going to be there on opening day for Cameron’s Part 2 of this stinking heap of a movie.

Cameron has apparently decided to have at least part of the action take place in Pandora’s oceans, and he has commissioned an ultra-deep-sea submarine that can reach the bottom of the Mariana Trench at around 11,000 meters down (36,000 feet) and film with 3D cameras!

  1. WOW. That sounds awesome. I haven’t seen the first part but will probably get dragged to see the second one. atleast that one might be worth my money (or atleast some of it).

  2. Now that’s some very exciting news! I was very disappointed by the first movie but I will definitely go check those creatures out
