One of the most anticipated science fiction movies, ‘Avatar 2’ is constantly creating headlines since the ‘Titanic’ director James Cameron declared that the release would be delayed once again. Earlier it was said that all the sequels would be released in tandem and that was what Cameron was trying to do.
However, the latest updates surrounding ‘Avatar 2’ state that the film is going to be the first 3D movie that can be viewed without having to don a pair of glasses. In November 2016, Cameron disclosed his plan that involved further research and development in innovating the format, stating “I’m still very bullish on 3D, but we need brighter projection, and ultimately I think it can happen – with no glasses. We’ll get there,” Independent reported.
On the other hand, Cameron’s Lightstorm Entertainment renewed for five-year collaboration with Christie Digital. Because of this collaboration, Cameron aims to create high-tech and immersive cinema. Christie Digital will provide one of their latest RGB laser projection systems for the upcoming ‘Avatar 2’ and other sequels of the franchise. It seems there is a big chance for Cameron to generate 3D experience without the requirement of 3D glasses.
“In addition to the latest in projection technologies, Christie is fully committed to sharing our ongoing research and development efforts, including product roadmaps, with our co-visionary, Lightstorm, so that its productions will repeat the awe-inspiring success of ‘Avatar’ in the years to come,” Christie Digital’s CEO and President Jack Kline said.
The advantage of using RGB laser projection is that it offers bright images at a high frame rate. This endows the filmmakers with the capability to push the boundaries of 3D movies. If he becomes successful in bringing this latest technology in ‘Avatar 2,’ it will be taken by other science fiction directors. The viewers would be then able to experience the 3D movies without wearing 3D glasses.
‘Avatar 2’ is expected to hit the big screens on December 18, 2020. Other sequels will reportedly be released in consecutive years.
