It has officially been reported that director James Cameron’s “Avatar” sequels will span three films instead of the previously confirmed two, meaning that “Avatar” is set to become a quadrilogy (four films). While it does come as a surprise it makes sense, considering that the first film is the highest-grossing film of all time, earning over $2.5 billion at the box office. With only 16 films ever to pass the $1 billion mark, it is quite the feat. Also, lets not forget that James Cameron’s “Titanic” comes in at number two on the highest-grossing films list, earning $2.1 billion at the box office. So the reason the quadrilogy announcement makes perfect sense is simply because the upcoming “Avatar” films will most likely fall in line with Cameron’s previous works and become commercial success’.
The upcoming films are scheduled to be shot back-to-back, with “Avatar 2″ set to be released December 2016, “Avatar 3″ following in December 2017, and “Avatar 4″ will most likely hit the big screen a year later in 2018.
