James Cameron Admits He Played The ‘Titanic’ Card When Clashing With The Studio Over The Original Avatar Film


James Cameron’s track record as a director is absolutely incredible but there was a time when he had only made one of the most successful movies of all-time, and apparently when that’s the case even James Cameron still has to fight the studio over getting to make the movie he wants. It turns out that in order to make the version of Avatar he wanted, Cameron had to remind the studio who had made Titanic for them. 

Avatar was the highest grossing movie of all-time upon its release, and globally it still is, though it was briefly dethroned by Avengers: Endgame. At this point, it’s hard to imagine anybody saying “no” to James Cameron, they let the man wait over a decade to make Avatar sequels, but the director tells the New York Times, that he did clash with the studio over several elements of the film, including the runtime. Cameron explained…

I think I felt, at the time, that we clashed over certain things. For example, the studio felt that the film should be shorter and that there was too much flying around on the ikran— what the humans call the banshees. Well, it turns out that’s what the audience loved the most, in terms of our exit polling and data gathering.
