'Avatar' Sequel Will Be Titled 'Avatar: The Way of Water' -- Where to See the CinemaCon Trailer

Attendees at the CinemaCon industry conference in Las Vegas this week were treated to a 3D trailer for Avatar: The Way of Water, the upcoming sequel to James Cameron's Avatar. The first movie amazed audiences when it was released in 2009 and spurred a resurgence of 3D movies in theaters for many years afterward.

According to the many news articles and tweets from attendees, the trailer was impressive! Words like "dazzling" and "astonishing" are being used to describe the experience, which is pretty much on-brand for the movie soon-to-be-franchise.

The first movie was a blend of so many other movies, but it told a familiar story in such a visually spectacular way, audiences didn't mind. It was definitely an experience on a big screen, and 3D was definitely the way to see it. Watching Avatar on a smartphone is not the same experience by any stretch of the imagination, and it sounds like the next installment will be carrying on that tradition!

Avatar: The Way of Water opens in theaters Friday, December 16, 2022. To stay updated on all the latest news, be sure to add the movie to your Favorite Movies list!

When and Where You Can Watch the Trailer

It was announced that the teaser trailer would be shown in front of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, which opens in theaters on May 6. One would hope that the 3D version of the trailer will be shown in front of 3D presentations of Doctor Strange, but there's no confirmation of that. Check out the links below to find the showings of your choice and plan accordingly!

Original Avatar Coming Back to Theaters

Also announced was the fact that Avatar is returning to theaters on September 23. The Hollywood Reporter mentions (see below) that it will be with "restored picture and sound" but there is no indication if it will be the original theatrical release, or the Avatar: Special Edition, which had about ten minutes of additional footage.

One would hope that this would include Avatar in 3D as many have never seen the movie in all its three-dimensional glory, much less on the big screen. Speaking of big, there's also Avatar: An IMAX 3D Experience to consider...

I'm sure that more details will coming in the time leading up to September 23, as well as December 16, so stay tuned!
