Oscar-winning director James Cameron explained he wanted to make six-hour movies for streaming platforms like Netflix
James Cameron plans to make six-hour movies for streaming platforms.
The director of “Titanic” explained that he was excited about the “chaos” that the rise of streaming services such as Netflix has brought to Hollywood and revealed that he wanted to make a new kind of film using the platforms.
James told Variety: âI’m not afraid. I like change. I’m a kid from the 60s. I like it when things are chaotic. I think what we can see is an enlarged form of cinema. I want to make a film that lasts six and two and a half hours at the same time. Same film.
âYou can stream it for six hours, or you can have a more condensed, rollercoaster, and immersive version of that movie theater experience. The same movie. Just, one is the novel and the other is the movie. Why not use these platforms in a way that has never been done before. “
James is currently working on the sequel to his sci-fi epic ‘Avatar’ and has explained that he has a lot of editing to do before the films are up to date – although he praised the contributions of the various actors.
The director – who plans to release a new ‘Avatar’ movie every two years until 2028 – said, “I haven’t made it out alive yet. 2 is fully in the box. We have a working cut. that we’re filling in the visuals inside. I feel pretty confident with this movie. 3 is still a little dark. It’s way too long. “
James continued, âI haven’t really turned my energy into a disciplined cutting process about it yet. But I know I’ve got the performances. That’s the important thing. I did the whole catch. I did most of the filming live. I still owe a bit to some of the adult characters. We were more concerned with the kids getting older. “
