"If you watch Way of Water at home on a reasonably large flat screen TV with a decent sound system, and you sit close enough and that way across the room, you're going to have a good experience," Cameron stressed.
Whatever you do, though, don’t watch it on your phone – or anything else with middling speakers. Jim won’t be happy.
"When you start looking at something on a phone, you're sort of missing the point," he said. "Going to a movie theater is less about the size of the screen and the perfection of the sound system. And it's more about a decision to not multitask."
So, there you have it: a good sound system and a "reasonably large" TV are a must. The Way of Water, though, is still going strong at the box office, grossing almost $2 billion and becoming one of the most successful movies of all time.
A third Avatar movie, currently untitled, is planned for December 20, 2024. The threequel will not only feature new types of Na’vi, but also a new narrator: Lo’ak (Britain Dalton). Avatar 4 and Avatar 5 are also on the way – now that The Way of Water has broken even.
