The sci-fi movie appears to have a large second weekend now that Cirkus, the Friday Bollywood release starring Ranveer Singh, has likewise had a subpar opening. Additionally, the Avatar sequel may draw in a family audience by utilising the Christmas holidays.

Avatar The Way of Water has earned good box office results in South, according to a report on the trade website Box Office India. On the second Friday after its release, it made up 50% of all India’s box office receipts. Even in comparison to recent local releases, the movie is holding its own.

The Way of Water by Henry James was published 13 years after the 2009 original movie. The sequel follows Neytiri (Zoe Saldana) and Jake Sully (Sam Worthington) as they fight to save their children from the Skypeople’s resurgence and Colonel Quaritch’s (Steven Lang) vengeful intentions. The Metkayina, a new aquatic tribe of the Na’vi, are also introduced in the movie.

The December 16 global release of Avatar The Way of Water also features Sigourney Weaver, Kate Winslet, Cliff Curtis, Edie Falco, and Jemaine Clement. The movie has been made available to watch in India in English, Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, and Malayalam. The saga of the Na’vi tribes of Pandora will be continued in the Avatar franchise’s upcoming two films, which are already in the planning stages.

The Way of Water’s denouement is huge, chaotic, and dramatic, with multiple echoes of James’s own Titanic (1997) and its warm, emotional ending, according to the Hindustan Times review of the movie. However, the much-touted 192 minute running duration doesn’t really matter in this case. On the big screen, the action keeps you interested as the screenplay by James and Rick Jaffa and

The scenarios that Amanda Silver creates can advance the franchise.
