His trailer for Avatar 2 racked up more than 148.6 million views in its first day, according to YouTube and social aggregates, confirmed by Disney and 20th Century. The movie’s trailer was scrapped online on Monday and has raked in millions of views – suggesting that director Cameron could really put his bed in bed. concerns that no one will see his four Avatar sequels.

The trailer was first shown to CinemaCon attendees at the end of April and was then released in cinemas over the weekend. The trailer was a hit globally, with Disney and 20th Century speech that it received 23 million viewers in China alone.

Based on Hollywood Reporter, which puts the trailer’s views far ahead of all recent Star Wars movies from the same period – a huge achievement. The figures also don’t take into account people who saw the trailer at the cinema. The teaser was shown exclusively before Doctor Strange and Madness’s Multiverse already perform $450 million (£365 million) at the worldwide box office. For comparison, the Rise of Skywalker trailer garnered 112.4 million views in its first day.

The new trailer shows characters Jake Sully (Sam Worthington) and Neytiri (Zoe Saldaña), who are now married, on several adventures on Pandora’s blue moon. There’s already a shaft that spins into the water – so the trailer shows vast ocean scenes we could only imagine would look incredible on cinema screens. Avatar 2 was shot in 3D with motion capture technology.

Director James Cameron said in an interview with Entertainment Weekly: “I work oceans when I’m not making movies. “So if I can combine my two greatest loves – one of which is exploring the ocean; the other is making feature films – why can’t I?”

The sequel, due out in December, is one of four Avatar movies to be made simultaneously. Cameron first announced the sequel in 2010. Filming began in 2017, but it took years of preparation to bring it to the screen because it was filmed in and around water. Many members of the crew must obtain a scuba diving license and then learn how to free dive. In the cinemaCon Cameron speak that he was “working hard to finish the final steps for the film”.

Avatar: The Way of Water will see Sigourney Weaver and Stephen Lang reprise their roles, while superstars Vin Diesel and Kate Winslet will join the cast.

Until 2019, when it was surpassed by Avengers: Endgame, Avatar was the highest-grossing film of all time – bringing in $2.85 billion (£2.3 billion) worldwide at the box office. Fans of the original can expect a re-release on September 23, where the film has received updated visuals and audio. It won three Academy Awards for Best Art Direction, Best Cinematography, and Best Visual Effects in 2010.

Avatar: Way of Water will be released on December 16, 202
