“I’m super excited to be finally finishing up movie two,” Cameron instructed the viewers. “I know everyone’s been waiting a long time. Hopefully, we’ll show something today and you can decide if it’s been worth it.”

The presentation showcased 5 or 6 scenes from the movie, which the viewers skilled with 3D glasses. The underwater sequences reportedly dazzled the gang as viewers returned to the fictional world of Pandora.

The unique movie, which noticed the US Marines invade an alien species named the Na’vi, broke field workplace information and has since grossed practically $3 billion. Movie critics like The Observer’s Philip French known as the 2009 film “overlong, dramatically two-dimensional, smug and simplistic.”

As for the size of the sequel, Cameron lately mentioned he doesn’t need anyone criticizing its three-hour runtime.

“I don’t want anybody whining about length when they sit and binge-watch [television] for eight hours,” he instructed Empire in July. “I can almost write this part of the review. ‘The agonizingly long three-hour movie…’ It’s like, give me a fucking break. I’ve watched my kids sit and do five one-hour episodes in a row.”

Director Liam O’Donnell, who wrote the alien invasion science-fiction movie “Skyline,” took to Twitter after watching Cameron’s presentation of “The Way of Water” footage in August. It “appears to be the most insanely complicated movie ever made” and it “broke brain,” he said

“Just the amount of data they captured,” O’Donnell tweeted. “Underwater performance capture with 15 cameras. Two cams on every actor’s face capture. Underwater reference capture for fully CG creatures. Oh yeah, and infrared depth capture to place CG characters in the live-action footage.”

Over time, “Avatar” has turn into a cultural phenomenon, spurring annual Halloween costumes of the blue-skinned protagonists and a humorous presentation by Ben Stiller on the 2010 Academy Awards.

“The Way of Water” is ready for launch in theaters on Dec. 16.
