It’s been quite a year for blockbusters, with movies like Top Gun: Maverick (2022) and Jurassic World Dominion (2022) dominating the box office. And 2022 is set to end with one last blockbuster, as the long-awaited sequel to James Cameron’s Avatar (2009) is almost here.

The revolutionary director might be best known for Avatar, but he’s also responsible for two of the greatest science fiction sequels of all time, in Aliens (1986) and Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991). So we should be very excited about Avatar: The Way of Water (2022).

The visuals here are nothing short of mesmerising, but one of the film’s most intriguing aspects is the story, which finds Jake Sully (Sam Worthington), Neytiri (Zoe Saldaña) and their children joining another clan of Na’vi as they prepare to face a new human threat.

The original Avatar has grossed over $3 billion worldwide, making it the second highest-grossing film of all time. With a slightly higher budget of $250 million, Avatar: The Way of Water is one of the most expensive films ever made, but can it top the success of its predecessor?
