James Cameron’s long awaited return to theaters is delayed by six months. His sci-fi epic Avatar was originally scheduled for a May 2009 debut will now arrive on December 18, 2009.
According to Variety, a year and a half isn't enough time to complete the sucker. Cameron needs a full two years to finish all of his post-production needs.
Cinema Blend (who altered the poster used above)says the new timetable, is probably in place, because the copy of the script that they read--has the film being an almost all post-production excercise.
It’s barely a live action movie at all, 75% of it will be entirely computer animated. It’ll probably qualify for an animation Oscar. Most of that 2 years is likely going to be spent on computer processing time.
Cameron can take all of the time he needs for this flick...I just hope there's a story in there some place--amid all of the "gee whiz" stuff
