'Avatar 2' Won't Require 3D Glasses Thanks To New Technology

According to Inside the Magic, James Cameron's company Lightstorm Entertainment has renewed a five-year collaboration with Christie Digital to "create high-tech, immersive cinema". RGB laser projection provides bright images at a higher frame rate, which gives filmmakers the ability to "push the boundaries of 3D films".

If we were to hazard a guess as to how this will play out, we suspect that only a limited number of theaters will initially sign on for Cameron's proposed 3D projection upgrades while the rest of the theater owners wait to see how moviegoers respond to the changes.

We know from existing glasses-free technology, like Nintendo's 3DS handheld, that there's an optimal "bubble" in which this kind of technology works, so if you're ever in one of Cameron's futuristic laser shows, try not to glance at the screen when you get up during a Navi dance number to visit the bathroom, or you could end up giving yourself a headache.

Director James Cameron, the innovative filmmaker who has made path breaking movies such as "Terminator", "Alien" and "Titanic" besides "Avatar", is planning to take technology to incredible heights with the four sequels to "Avatar". Cast additions have included Fear the Walking Dead star Cliff Curtis as well as Oona Chaplin (Game of Thrones, Black Mirror). The actor will play Tonowari, the leader of the Metkayina, the reef people clan.

Cameron's Avatar sequels are said to follow Jake (Sam Worthington) Neytiri (Zoe Saldana) and their children's "battle with humans".

Production is finally getting underway on Avatar 2 in the coming weeks, with James Cameron and his extensive team also making Avatar 3, Avatar 4 and Avatar 5 over the coming years.
