We now have our first glimpse of the sequel to Avatar (2009) and it doesn’t disappoint. More a teaser than a trailer, it is almost completely music except for a few words of dialogue. It looks like life on Pandora has been good to Jake and the scenery of Pandora is absolutely stunning. I am pleased to be able to provide the official 5.1 mix as well.
Someone also sent me, anonymously, the IMAX 4K version. I have remuxed it to include the DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 audio track, but the video is their encode. It looks great!
You can download the trailer at the Avatar: The Way of Water (2022) page.
Not sure about it story wise, but at least it will look nice haha.
It would be awesome if you could source a 3D or High Framerate version of the trailer (I think the one shown off at Cinemacon was 48fps)
As far as I can tell from reports online, Cameron did shoot some material in high framerate. But that wasn’t for the purpose of ever projecting high frame rate. It was as a tool so that during mastering, especially for 3d, they would have extra material to work with to create the best possible 24fps frames that would look the least jarring during fast motion 3d scenes. It could be a case of blending real frames together to make a better looking average frame, but the end result is still just 24 frames per second.
Many thanks for releasing this and all the other trailers you release. I love watching trailers with 5.1 sound.
