Avatar: The Way Of Water

James Cameron has been pushing back movies since before it was cool. Thirteen years after the original Avatar became the highest-grossing film worldwide, its sequel will finally hit theaters. Will audiences flock back to Pandora? They’d better — if this one makes money, more installments in the Avatar saga will arrive every two years until 2028. — Nate Jones, 20 Movies We Can’t Wait to See This Winter
