Film Director

Cameron was gracious when “Avengers: Endgame” usurped his 2009 film “Avatar” as all-time box-office champion in July, but it probably helped that he had a few cinematic arrows in his quiver, namely four “Avatar” sequels. Shooting concurrently with a budget of $1 billion, they will be released in two-year spans starting December 2021.
