Online this Monday, May 9, after being screened at the cinema with the sessions of “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness”, the first trailer for “Avatar 2” has been viewed 148.6 million times in 24 hours .
Have the many postponements and other false starts undermined the expectation that a film of the scale of Avatar 2 can generate? No, and its first trailer proves it: put online this Monday, May 9, after a few days of exclusivity for cinemas wishing to screen it before Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, the video has been viewed 148.6 million times in 24 hours.
Subtitled La Voie de l’eau, James Cameron’s feature film does better than the first images of the latest Star Wars or Black Widow over the same period of time. But the leader in this category remains Fast & Furious 9, from the top of its 202.7 million viewings in one day.
Released in 2009, the first Avatar had caused a tidal wave in dark rooms and put 3D back on the front of the stage, before winning the title of the biggest hits of all time in the world. A crown that he recently took back from Avengers Endgame, which had passed him for a few months.
Expected on December 14 on our screens and set ten years after the first part, Avatar – The Way of the Water will follow Jake (Sam Worthington) and Neytiri (Zoë Saldana), who have become parents, while Pandora is again threatened by the Resources Development Administration. As promised by James Cameron, they will explore the underwater part of the planet. And us too, at the same time.
