Avatar 2 VFX and its storyline

Just like its prequel, the major attraction of the film is its breathtaking visuals, CGI work, and, of course, VFX. Reportedly, Avatar: The Way Of Water’s budget is said to be between $350 million to $400 million. A big chunk of it is spent to make the film a visual extravaganza. Wētā Workshop is one of the companies which has worked on the visual effects of the film. For the unversed, Wētā Workshop is special effects and prop company based in Miramar, Wellington, New Zealand. While at a time when various filmmakers of the world call their movie efficient in terms of VFX, Avatar 2 tops them all and indeed has set a benchmark for upcoming movies to match the bar. Avatar 2 is James Cameron's masterpiece and its underwater sequences are absolutely breathtaking, worth the price of an admission ticket alone, and the wonder on the faces of Sully family as they witness this new paradise reflects the amazement of our own. James Horner's score adds to the moving sequences.

Not only this, Avatar 2 storyline keeps the fans gripped, and therefore it won't be wrong to say that it has the potential to break its own previous world record and even an Oscar-worthy movie. For the unversed, Avatar 1 had won three Oscars and was nominated for nine. As of 2013, the 3D science fiction epic also made a world record for being the highest-grossing film of all time. James Cameron's Avatar was the highest-grossing release of all time with $2.9 billion worldwide. However, will Avatar 2 shatter Avengers Endgame opening day records, it is hard to tell as of now. However, if not the first, James Cameron's masterpiece is expected to be the second-biggest release after Avengers Endgame.
