The release of Avatar: The Way of Water is right around the corner to the point that the first invites to early screenings have started going out to critics in the Los Angeles and New York City areas. It's still unclear when the embargo, social or review, for this will be coming down, and we'll get the first reactions for the film. Director James Cameron has stated that the film needs to do massive numbers to turn a profit and that if it doesn't do well enough, he could wrap it up in the next movie. Tickets just went on sale, so it's still a bit too early to make any accurate calls when it comes to the box office. We got a small pile of character posters and the new trailer that still doesn't tell us that much about the actual story of this film. At this point, you have to wonder if Cameron's talk about not relying on spectacle isn't actually true, considering how vague all of the marketing has been. Maybe now that we are heading into the final weeks, we'll get some TV spots that really give some concrete answers.
