Covid-19 has changed the way of life and James Cameron’s Avatar: Untouched Water Road. The Hollywood director has opted out of the highly anticipated Los Angeles premiere of his movie after contracting Covid-19.
Cameron, who hasn’t come up with a movie that has taken him into Hollywood’s backyard since 2009 when “Avatar” first came out, is asymptomatic and feeling fine, Variety reports. He will continue to publicize the film, albeit by default.
Industry players and lucky fans who flock to the Hollywood & Highland complex Monday night (Pacific Time) will encounter the stars of the film, which includes Kate Winslet, Zoe Saldana, Sam Worthington, Sigourney Weaver, Edie Falco, and Jemaine Clement.
According to Variety, Cameron attended the film’s world premiere in London last week. His latest opened Friday and appears to be ending the year in style for the Disney distributor.
Reports had opening weekend box office expectations at $150 million. The movie also got a release in China, which boosted its chances of profitability.
The film received an enthusiastic reception at its first media screenings, and nicknames such as “formidable”, “amazing” and “epic” rained down on it.
The series takes place more than a decade after the events of its predecessor and tells the story of the “Sully Family” (Jake, Neytiri and their children), the troubles that followed them, their efforts to protect themselves and each other, the battles they fight for survival and the tragedies they endure. .
