The Way Of Water’ – Deadline

maverick filmmaker James Cameron came again after miracle — this time, making an unfavourable comparison between the studio’s ILM-produced VFX and the VFX seen by Weta for their upcoming 20th tentpole, Avatar: The Way of Water,

When asked in a recent video interview with ComicBook.com (which you can watch above) about the enormous amount of visual effects being produced today – first and foremost for superhero-driven programming Cameron acknowledged its positive effects in furthering the art form.

“Obviously, the big comic book superhero movies are driving the vast majority of the industry, and the rising tide of technology brings everybody together. It gives you higher quality actors. You have more tools and plug-ins and There are codes. You have more talented people out there writing codes, and simulations, and all that kind of stuff,” he said. “Then, as we’re putting our team together, and as Weta Digital continues to hire new hires, it’s coming out of that pool, so it improves everything together.”

But even though Cameron was willing to admit recently, to raising the bar in the VFX industry, he wouldn’t go so far as to put Marvel’s effects on the same plane as his films — especially the motion-capture work. Appraisal of Josh Brolin’s Avengers for the villain Thanos, compared to his Avatar sequels.

“The Weta Effect, as it’s known now, is the best. Right? I mean, ILM does a great job, but when it comes to the emotional face stuff that we’re doing…I mean, Thanos Come on. Give me a break,” Cameron said. “You saw this [new Avatar] Movies. It’s not even close.

Cameron made the comment after saying at the beginning of the interview that he was “not going to dismantle” Marvel or DC’s films. “I love those movies,” he said. “Let’s just get this off the table.”

The filmmaker previously criticized Marvel in an interview with The New York Times in October, expressing displeasure over the level of character development in their films. “When I look at these big, great movies — I’m looking at you, Marvel and DC — it doesn’t matter how old the characters are, they all act like they’re in college,” he said. “They have ties, but they don’t really. They never hang up their spurs because of their kids. The things that really ground us and give us strength, love, and a purpose? They deserve it.” Don’t experience, and I think that’s not the way to make movies.

Earning more than $2.9B at the worldwide box office and claiming the 2010 Oscar for Best Visual Effects, Cameron’s sci-fi epic Avatar stars paraplegic Marine Jake Sully (Sam Worthington) as he travels to the moon Pandora sent on a unique mission to Carrying out his orders and protecting the world seems to be his home. The sequel, arriving December 16, begins with Jake, Pandora native Neytiri (Zoe Saldana) and her family as they face a new threat to a race of aliens known as the Na’vi. The new film, which also stars Sigourney Weaver, Michelle Yeoh, Stephen Lang, Kate Winslet and others, will be followed by at least three sequels set for December 20, 2024, December 18, 2026 and December 22, 2028.
