Avatar Sequels Coming, Two of Them

The movie which single-handedly pulled the movie industry from the pit in which it was slowly sinking is coming back. Rumored ever since the launch of the first Avatar, a sequel has been confirmed earlier this year, but word is that now there will be two of them.

The two sequels to the Avatar movie will begin production in 2011, and will be launched in 2014 and 2015, respectively. At this time, the plot probably doesn't even exist, but surfing the web in search of info about the project will give you a pretty good idea of what the movies may look like. James Cameron promises though they'll look just as stunning.

"In the second and third films, which will be self-contained stories that also fulfill a greater story arc, we will not back off the throttle of 'Avatar's' visual and emotional horsepower, and will continue to explore its themes and characters, which touched the hearts of audiences in all cultures around the world," Cameron said in a statement. "I'm looking forward to returning to Pandora, a world where our imaginations can run wild."

The success of the first movie was a gold mine for car and bike manufacturers as well. American manufacturer Chrysler sponsored the Golden Globe Awards which ended with Avatar winning best picture drama and best director awards, while lead actor Sam Worthington was hinted to be, in several ads and clips from the film, as a biker (product placement courtesy of Harley-Davidson).

Ford on the other hand took another approach when it came to Avatar, and is currently using the same technologies as those used for the movie to better design its cars.
