How did Cameron get a nod for Avatar 2?
Director Cameron has always served brilliant blockbusters, which is why it often gets hard for studios to reject his creation. However, before the Avatar’s release in 2009, Fox had already rejected the movie due to its high costs.
But James had full confidence in his creation, and he further told Fox’s owner Peter Chernin, that if the movie performed out of the box, Peter will look like a d–k to everyone due to the lost opportunity.
Initially, Cameron used to be a little bit defensive about the costs incurred in his movies. However, after a while he started using those costs to his advantage saying that if he has so much money to make a business case, then why won’t he go for it. It’s better to spend the money in movies than to put it in some other use.
