James Cameron Weighs In On When To Pee During His Lengthy ‘Avatar’ Sequel

‘Avatar’ director James Cameron isn’t holding back on how long moviegoers should hold out during his 3+ hour long sequel to his 2009 sci-fi epic.

Cameron, whose previous Avatar film is the highest-grossing film of all time, opened up about the length of his upcoming film Avatar: The Way of Water in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter.

The legendary filmmaker’s previous Avatar film lasted less than three hours, but its sequel is set to run at three hours and 12 minutes.

The sequel to Avatar is three minutes shorter than Cameron’s film Titanic, which held the title of highest-grossing film of all time before the 2009 film.

Cameron, who said he would be “playing the epic game” with the sequel, was named as he believes moviegoers should go to the bathroom during his new $350m-plus film.

“Whenever you want. They can see the scene they missed if they watch it again,” Cameron said.

Cameron has opened up about the length of the film in recent weeks, telling Total Film magazine there is “more to tell” in the sequel.

“The goal is to tell a highly compelling story on an emotional basis,” said Cameron.

Cameron opened up about potential moviegoer complaints about the runtime during an interview with Empire magazine, saying he didn’t want people to “whine” about the length of the sequel due to binge-watching habits.

“I can almost write this part of the review. “The agonizingly long three-hour movie… ‘It’s like, give me a friggin’ break,'” Cameron said.

“I watched my kids do five hour-long episodes in a row. Here’s the big societal paradigm shift that needs to happen: It’s okay to get up and pee.”
