James Cameron defends the long runtime of Avatar 2 already

These days, it has become common practice for great movies to be long movies too. When there is a major tent pole release, the film is expected to last more than two hours, it’s just a question of how much. The original Avatar was even two hours and 40 minutes long, and so there is every expectation that followed Avatar: The Way of Water will probably be too. James Cameron does not deny this, but he does not want to hear any complaints about it.

While we do not know how long the runtime for Avatar 2 will be, all signs point to being on the longer side. That’s the way the last one Avatar film was. That’s how James Cameron tends to work. Such is the present landscape. We are honestly surprised when these movies, as well Thor: Love & Thunderare not super long. However, as Avatar: The Way of Water ends longer than Avengers: Endgame, Cameron does not care and does not want to hear any complaints. He Tells Empire (fia Slashfilm) that people should have no problem watching movies, and it’s good that they get up when they need to. Cameron says …

I do not want anyone to cry over the length as they sit and binge watching [television] for eight hours … I can almost write this part of the review. ‘The agonizingly long three-hour movie …’ It’s like, give me a f — ing break. I’ve seen my kids sit and do five one-hour episodes in a row. Here’s the big social paradigm shift that needs to happen: it’s good to get up and move.
