Avatar 2 cost

Avatar: The Way of Water, is a sequel to the Avatar film, which was released in 2009. This Hollywood film is the second film of the franchise, which is expected to release three more sequels after this. James Cameron, the director of epic-science fiction, is creating the Avatar universe with all his might by spending thousands of crores on the budget.


According to The Digital Fix, Avatar 2 has a reported budget of $250 million. However, there are reports that the figure has swelled to between $350 million to $400 million, making it among the most expensive movies ever made – if not the most expensive movie in Hollywood history.

Surprisingly, a video is going viral on Twitter that reveals that a particular short clip from Avatar 2 has cost a whopping $ 100,000. The tweet reads, “A VFX artist estimated that this shot from #AvatarTheWayOfWater cost 100,000 dollars since every pixel in it is CG and the realism is pushed to the max.”

It was recently claimed that Way of Water would need to hit the $2 billion mark worldwide just to break even. It may sound ridiculous to think Avatar 2 can reach that figure, but you should never count Cameron out. He’s been dealing with skeptics his whole career, and let’s not forget he made two of the top three highest-grossing movies of all time, Avatar and Titanic.
