Avatar: The Way of Water expected to shatter box-office as the next pop-culture phenomenon

The sequel to Avatar, by far the most anticipated film that’s been a decade in the making, released an official trailer Wednesday, and it’s still trending at Number 1 on YouTube and has racked over 22 million views.

The Way of Water continues to explore the larger than life world of Pandora, returning to protagonists Jake Sully (Sam Worthington), Neytiri (Zoe Saldaña), Kiri (Sigourney Weaver), and antagonist Colonel Quaritch (Steven Lang).

The sequel encountered countless setbacks and delays due to needing the right technology for motion-capture CGI under water, as the film largely is composed of oceanic environments.

Three more sequels are expected to release within the coming years, posing as big competition against current box-office champion Marvel.

Avatar: The Way of Water is scheduled to release December 16, 2022, and knowing the immense hype behind the film, scoring tickets as soon as they’re released is highly recommended.
