James Cameron’s Academy Award-winning 2009 epic adventure Avatar, the most successful film of all time, is returning theaters September 23 in 4K High Dynamic Range. Check out the new trailer and poster art to celebrate the rerelease below.
The film is the top-grossing film of all time with $2.847 billion worldwide, with $760.5 million coming from domestic theaters and $2.087 billion internationally.
The film was produced by Cameron and Jon Landau. Nominated for nine Academy Awards including Best Picture and Best Director, the film won three Oscars, for Best Cinematography, Production Design and Visual Effects.
The rerelease will lead into the December 16, 2022 release of the highly-anticipated Avatar: The Way of Water.
Set more than a decade after the events of the first film, the sequel begins to tell the story of the Sully family (Jake, Neytiri, and their kids), the trouble that follows them, the lengths they go to keep each other safe, the battles they fight to stay alive, and the tragedies they endure.
Directed by Cameron and produced by Cameron and Landau, the film stars Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana, Sigourney Weaver, Stephen Lang, Cliff Curtis, Joel David Moore, CCH Pounder, Edie Falco, Jemaine Clement and Kate Winslet.
Following Avatar: The Way of Water, the third installment, Avatar: The Seed Bearer, will release on December 20, 2024.
Then Avatar: The Tulkun Rider and Avatar: The Quest for Eywa are coming to theaters on December 18, 2026 and December 22, 2028, respectively.
The young members of the Sully family are played by Jamie Flatters, Britain Dalton, and Trinity Bliss, while the Metkayina Clan members are played by Bailey Bass, Filip Geljo, and Duane Evans Jr.
Jack Champion is playing Javier “Spider” Socorro, a human teenager, born at Hell’s Gate but who prefers his time in the Pandoran rainforest more than the asphalt of Hell’s Gate.
The James Cameron-directed sequels are written by Cameron along with Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver, Josh Friedman, and Shane Salerno.
