James Cameron's epic sci-fi film Avatar: The Way of the Water (2022) has hit the screens, showing audiences stunning visuals and masterful character art. An incredible world of Na'vi humanoids from the planet Pandora opens up to us; the action now takes place underwater.


Avatar 2 - the new sensation



But even more surprising is how the film was shot. You can get acquainted with the secrets of "Avatar 2" and see in the videos how the ideas and plot of the film were technically embodied. If you have yet to see this movie, then after you learn these 19 facts, you will most likely want to quickly go to the cinema or find a picture on the Web to plunge into the fantastic Universe of the legendary filmmaker again!


1. The film has a huge budget.

Director James Cameron tried to keep the production cost of Avatar: The Way of Water under wraps but didn't mention in interviews that it was "very, f... expensive" (quote). He also stated that the film arguably represents the worst business case in history, as to be profitable, it must be the third or fourth highest-grossing film in history to break even.


Wow, right? According to the latest sources, Cameron hit the spot as it was recently revealed that the film could have cost a whopping $350-400 million!


2. Everything animated characters do on screen, the actors acted out in real life.

  How "Avatar: The Way of Water" was filmed - the film that showed the world a new level of special effects

One of the critical differences between Avatar 2 and other films that use computer characters is that all the actors of the second Avatar acted out their scenes. And the advanced motion capture technology used in filming meant that their eyes, facial expressions, emotions, and movements were captured and translated into three-dimensional computer graphics (CGI).


By comparison, one example of a movie that didn't have this was Venom. Tom Hardy, who played it, explained that motion capture was not used in the film, which gave us reason to understand that Venom himself and all his movements and facial expressions were brought to life by digital animation (which, by the way, still looks fantastic).


This leads to the idea that the technology used is one of the main reasons Avatar: The Path of Water can convey so many emotions. The characters on the fictional extraterrestrial planet seem very human. If you watch the excellent video in English of how the film was shot, you will see how the actors work and, in parallel, how their characters come to life in the digital world.


3. Actors' skills were tested when Cameron chose to shoot "wet on wet."

Forget floating rigs and dry-for-wet green screens. This is when the actors have to move on cables, depicting scuba diving, and then special effects are added - water graphics.


James Cameron was set to film the water scenes in natural water to make them as accurate as possible. Therefore, he applied the wet-for-wet technology - “wet on wet,” and immersed the actors in the water.


As visual effects supervisor Richie Baynham explained in an interview, “If an actor is actually in the water, he experiences viscous resistance. This impacts the game. That makes it feel real."


When watching the movie, you'll notice and feel the effort put into the underwater scenes, from the fluid movements of the sea creature Skimwing to the shots where the character's arms swing as they interact with aquatic plants. While the cast and stunt crew aren't in Pandora's ocean, you get to see these magical moments that would seem more raw and unnatural if filmed on land.


4. Underwater Reservoirs Were Created For The Movie

At Manhattan Beach Studios, two massive tanks were designed with which Cameron could put his wet-on-wet plan into action.


One of the tanks was used for character training and personal moments, while the other monstrous pool (measuring 36.6 meters long, 18.3 meters wide, and 9.1 meters deep, to be exact, and with a capacity of 946 cu. meters) was filled with modern machines for creating waves and currents, designed and used to enhance dynamic episodes.


5. Even the epic final fight scene was played UNDERWATER

  How "Avatar: The Way of Water" was filmed - the film that showed the world a new level of special effects

Towards the film's end, there is a long and very verbose fight scene between Jake Sully (Sam Worthington) and Quaritch (Stephen Lang). As the episode unfolds, the viewer is drawn into what is happening and begins to believe that the characters' lives are really at stake!


Doubles play out a fight in a highly extreme situation. Also, in explaining playing out the battle with Lang, Worthington said he had his risks for several reasons. First, when he grabbed Lang with a chokehold, in his words, “the realism that you are trying to convey means that the partner can die and he cannot give an alarm because you are underwater and you simply cannot speak.”


Luckily for the actors, says Worthington, you have to rely on the people in charge of security on set and the director watching the action on the screens and counting on each other…


Judging by the footage from the set, there was nothing to do for those unable to hold their breath even for one minute. Kudos to the actors and stunt performers for practically risking their lives for our amusement. Those risks paid off!


6. The cast and crew spent over 200,000 hours of freediving.

  How "Avatar: The Way of Water" was filmed - the film that showed the world a new level of special effects

John Garvin, a lead master diver for Avatar: The Way of the Water, stated that over 200,000 dives were completed to make "the most challenging diving movie ever made." In an interview, he said this number includes the number of challenging dives to record because some were 30 to 60 seconds long, and others were invariably longer!


Garvin explained that on a typical busy day of filming, you could see 26 scuba divers and free divers simultaneously in the water, jumping up and down like a yo-yo. That's not to mention the technicians and lighting technicians who were constantly submerged in water to set things up on set.


It's one thing to imagine how hard it was for the actors. But what to say about how much collective effort the cast and crew took to put in so many hours of hard underwater work?


7. Kate Winslet broke Tom Cruise's record for holding her breath.

In Mission: Impossible: Rogue Nation (2015), Tom Cruise managed to hold his breath for over 6 minutes. The crazy result, you say? But now he's been knocked off the championship pedestal thanks to Kate Winslet. Her preparation for the role in "Avatar 2" allowed the actress to break her record (and Cruise's record) - she held her breath for 7 minutes and 14 seconds!


8. James Cameron preferred 3D cameras to 3D film conversion

  How "Avatar: The Way of Water" was filmed - the film that showed the world a new level of special effects

Many filmmakers prefer to convert their films to 3D in post-production. If you think about 3D movies over the years, you may not even remember that many were shot on 3D cameras. Take the useless remake of the slasher film My Bloody Valentine (2009) as one example.


But not Cameron. The director ensured that the film was shot in IMAX and 3D using a particular Sony CineAlta Venice 3D system that could be used underwater. Is there anything this person can't?!


9. 57 new species of sea creatures were created for the film

  How "Avatar: The Way of Water" was filmed - the film that showed the world a new level of special effects

Cameron's ideas for Pandora were inspired by the marine life that exists (or once existed) right here on Earth. Nevertheless, 57 new sea creatures that have never lived on our planet were created for the film.


Speaking of Ilu, a somewhat tame reef swimmer, Cameron mentioned that he has the neck of a plesiosaur and the body of a manta ray with lower and upper wings. As you watch the movie, you will notice other unearthly amazing creatures that are still familiar to the eye - in particular, look at the talks!


10. Na'vi costumes were first created in real life

  How "Avatar: The Way of Water" was filmed - the film that showed the world a new level of special effects

Looking at all this cinematic digitalization, one would have thought Na'vi clothing would be created from scratch by a team of digital specialists. But no! James Cameron, I'm sorry we doubted you.


It turns out that costume designer Deborah L. Scott and her team made every bracelet, necklace, and fabric worn by the Na'vi people. What is the reason for this moral approach?


"Because the technology is so good at capturing the image and texture of these elements, you can't draw them on a computer and expect them to have the 3D life they should." So the costume department went to great lengths to ensure that the design, the fabric, and how everything interacts with water would inform the digital artists well enough to make the clothes and accessories look real!


11. Filming started when all five Avatar films were written.

  How "Avatar: The Way of Water" was filmed - the film that showed the world a new level of special effects

Having conceived five films for Avatar, Cameron followed the example of Peter Jackson (Lord of the Rings), waiting to start filming the sequel until all the scripts for Avatar 2, 3, 4, and 5 were ready!


Jackson used this approach for the Lord of the Rings trilogy, and it's safe to say that the result was a masterpiece, so Cameron decided to follow the tried and tested method.


In an interview, Cameron explained that it was necessary to "play for the actors" as if the books were written and already existed in reality. The only way to show it is with scripts that are already fully prepared so that the actors are convinced of what happened to their characters and what everything they did on set meant. Now we want to know what will happen next!


12. It took three whole years to shoot

  How "Avatar: The Way of Water" was filmed - the film that showed the world a new level of special effects

The audience has been waiting for this sequel for a long time, and with good reason! Since so much time has been spent writing the scripts for all the remaining Avatar films, it's no surprise that filming has also taken quite a long time, starting in 2017 and wrapping up in 2020.


The creation of the second "Avatar" was indeed a long process. To estimate filming time, compare: one of the highest-grossing blockbusters of recent years, Avengers: Endgame (2019), was filmed in just five months.


13. Cameron wrote 1,500 pages of notes for four screenwriters tasked with turning them into screenplays.

  How "Avatar: The Way of Water" was filmed - the film that showed the world a new level of special effects

The director wrote 1,500 pages of his notes to create a visually detailed universe for the writers. The team included Josh Friedman (War of the Worlds), Shane Salerno (Armageddon), Rick Jaffa, and Amanda Silver (Rise of the Planet of the Apes). You can see the last two writers in the photo.


In terms of process, Cameron and the writing team sat in the writer's room for eight hours a day for five months, working through the story in all the remaining Avatar films to make it a saga.


Cameron's trick was the last day, so everyone would be equally involved in all stories. Cunning and brilliant, Cameron!


14. One plot idea in the movie could have failed.

  How "Avatar: The Way of Water" was filmed - the film that showed the world a new level of special effects

According to screenwriters Jaffa and Silver, there is one moment in the film that they considered "tightrope balancing" because if it wasn't done right, the audience might think it was too crazy and wouldn't buy it. What is this scary moment? Pay attention to the friendly communication between Loak (Britain Dalton) and the giant Tulkun Payakan. The writers were worried that the storyline was quite alien to the audience!


15. The film was edited twice

  How "Avatar: The Way of Water" was filmed - the film that showed the world a new level of special effects

Avatar: The Way of Water listed the four editors-in-chief in the credits, with director James Cameron, Stephen Rivkin, John Refua, and David Brenner rounding out the team. Cameron stated that four editors "were on duty for five years with two other editors who worked for one or two years, and then a staff of about a dozen assistants was divided between Los Angeles and New Zealand."


The process was intense as the team edited the entire film twice—A revised performance.


After that, Cameron starts the process of her virtual camera, figuring out what a close-up is, a wide shot, etc., and adjusting the lighting. When these shots come into the editing room, the team has to edit everything again!”


16. Composer Simon Franglen wrote music following the example of the late James Horner.

  How "Avatar: The Way of Water" was filmed - the film that showed the world a new level of special effects

James Horner wrote the soundtrack for the first Avatar, apparently even making a few of his instruments to bring Pandora's world to life with music. Unfortunately, his death in 2015 meant that the Avatar sequels would continue without him. However, composer Simon Franglen (pictured), who previously worked with Horner, was able to refine the score for the sequel while maintaining respect for the late composer.


“I was tasked with adding new textures, voices, and elements to the music. The sea is an integral part of many themes and motifs in my music; the shimmer of light, the ebb and flow of the waves, and the Na'vi's connection to the water were all inspiring,” says Franglen.


17. Sigourney Weaver Contributed To Kiri's Look

  How "Avatar: The Way of Water" was filmed - the film that showed the world a new level of special effects

One crazy thing about Avatar's technology is that Sigourney Weaver, at 73, could play a 14-year-old girl and pull it off, as far as I can tell.


Kiri, Jake, and Neytiri's adopted daughter seem to have an affinity for the outside world. She is a quirky and strong character and very likable! But when Weaver first saw Kiri's original design, she objected because she thought it was too neat and pretty. Therefore, Kiri was designed to have a slightly more messy look and look more like the awkward teenager she should be.


18. Avatar 2 Rendering Caused Weta Power Grid To Be Exceeded

  How "Avatar: The Way of Water" was filmed - the film that showed the world a new level of special effects

Film production visual effects company Weta FX exceeded the power grid that powered its data center in Wellington, New Zealand, as it prepared to render (computer-rendered) stills from a new film.


Avatar 2 averaged 500 iterations per frame, and they all had to be rendered one after the other. Higher frame rates and new technologies meant that each frame took 8,000 thread hours to generate (equivalent to 3,000 vCPUs in a cloud data center running for an hour).


The high demands were mainly due to the need to simulate water for the film. This meant that Weta was pushed to its limits and had to partner with Amazon Web Services data centers for more computing power and storage space.


19. Edward Norton Turned Down Avatar 2

  How "Avatar: The Way of Water" was filmed - the film that showed the world a new level of special effects

, but although the actor was interested in taking part, he wanted to avoid playing the character responsible for destroying Pandora. Norton was such a big fan of the first film that he only wanted to play Na'vi, but Cameron conceived a human role. Perhaps we will see Norton in what

17-embarrassing-moments-that-actors-had-to-go-through-when-they-were-caught-off-guard-on-purpose

Art requires sacrifice! This is exactly how film directors seem to reason, sometimes subjecting actors to difficult tests, so long as their emotions are as realistic as possible. And no matter how terrible it may sound, such harsh methods pay off.

 

Tricks of directors who helped to get real emotions from actors

 

Of course, what the actors have to go through is known only to themselves and the film crew. It remains for us to enjoy the wonderful game and genuine emotions of the heroes and heroines of the films.

 

But today you can go behind the scenes and find out what tricks directors use to make everything that happens in the frame look believable.

 

1. In Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, no one was warned about the boat scene, the spooky tunnel, or the Gene Wilder song, so the children's worried faces don't look fake.

That's not the only surprise - Peter Ostrum, who played Charlie, had no idea Gene would be so pissed off in Wonka's office, which is why he looks so depressed.

 

2. Everyone on the Titanic knew the water was going to be cold, but they weren't prepared for how cold it would actually be. The water was so cold that Kate Winslet couldn't stop shaking during the ax scene.

Despite shooting in extreme conditions and even hypothermia, Kate said she didn't want the water to be warm, because then she would never know what it was like to be in a similar situation.

 

3. Michel Gondry, director of Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, encouraged actors to do things that others didn't expect. In some scenes he asked Kate to be funny while Jim was told to be serious

According to Michel Gondry, although he eventually got into the process, such jokes made Jim nervous - everyone but him was encouraged to improvise, and there were several moments when he seemed to be really taken by surprise.

 

4. In "Mary Poppins", the kids playing Jane and Michael had no idea that Mary's bag had some kind of "magical" properties, so when she pulled the whole hanger out of it, their emotions were genuine.

Karen Dotrice, who played Jane, recalled that the crew went to great lengths to make sure she and her on-screen brother Matthew Garber were busy on set to distract them from what was happening.

 

5. And in The Alien, none of the kids saw the doll until filming started. The film was shot in chronological order, so their first impressions were completely real.

Steven Spielberg had several ways to get the most out of the kids: the writer took notes when they chatted during filming and also encouraged them to improvise.

 

6. It had a similar idea - children were kept away from Bill Skarsgård to capture their first frightened reactions on film.

Although they were clearly frightened by his clownish antics and intense scenes, none of the children seemed to be as frightened as Bill feared.

 

7. In "The Mockingjay, Part 1," the director filmed and edited test footage of Pete's interviews that will be played during scenes with Jennifer Lawrence. Jen missed working with Josh Hutcherson so he knew showing him on screen during her scene would elicit an emotional reaction.

According to Francis Lawrence, filming the interview scenes only took a few hours, and while it was hard for Jennifer to see Josh only on screen, it helped her feel some genuinely painful emotions.

 

8. The Blair Witch Project actors were given a 35-page script and asked to improvise. They were taken into the woods, and as you can imagine, the results were horrendous.

If you don't know the story, the film was presented as "restored footage" of three directors who disappeared after searching for the Blair Witch. For eight days, the actors worked almost around the clock and seven days a week, and were even deprived of food. Their realistic performances and some extreme promotional methods have led many people to think that they are actually dead.

 

9. To recreate the revolutionary spirit, the actors of Les Misérables were told to build a barricade in 10 minutes. All this time they were filmed, and what they did ended up being used in the film.

The actors didn't know where the cameras were placed and it looked quite chaotic, but the barricade turned out to be quite realistic, and only needed to be secured a little to keep it up.

 

10. To prepare for Saving Private Ryan, all the main actors were sent to a 10-day boot camp with harsh conditions, except for Matt Damon, who remained in America. Matt's character was meant to be repulsive, and he was intentionally left out to keep the on-screen hostility as realistic as possible.

The conditions at this boot camp were really not sugary, and the fact that Matt was at home at this time naturally created a negative attitude towards him. Training was so hard that after four days everyone wanted to quit,

 

The conditions at this boot camp were really not sugary, and the fact that Matt was at home at this time naturally created a negative attitude towards him. The training was so hard that after four days everyone wanted to quit, but Tom Hanks persuaded them to pull themselves together. Matt said that when he eventually showed up on set, his co-stars were hostile towards him and it showed on screen.

 

11. When Alan Rickman was filming the end of Die Hard, the director told him that he would count down from three and that Hans would fall to his death after he said "one" but told the stuntmen to let him go first.

The actor was dropped just a moment earlier than he expected, but there is genuine fear in his eyes. And although Alan, as you might imagine, was not too happy with such a trick, the end result was worth it.

 

12. While filming The Exorcist, director William Friedkin fired a gun on set to really scare the actors.

In his defense, Friedkin said that he used blanks, but the actors portrayed exactly the emotions that he needed, and at the same time looked very believable.

 

13. Jay Baruchel was so afraid of roller coasters that he even made a deal with Knocked Up director Judd Apatow to film the earthquake scene naked if he didn't have to ride any of the rides. However, those who have watched the movie know that Judd did not keep his promise.

Jay was sure that his agreement with Judd was still valid (Jay told him that he was going to have a panic attack), but on the right day, Jonah Hill did not appear for the shooting of this scene, and Judd persuaded Jay to film instead of Jonah. Therefore, the screams in the film are real.

 

14. Steven Spielberg hired a female stuntman to play the first victim in Jaws. She was tied to a cable, and the diver was ready to pull her under the water. After the first few takes were unsuccessful, Spielberg ordered the actress to be dragged under the water unexpectedly for her - so although the shark was a prop, the victim was drowning as if in reality

All this looked so realistic that many thought that the girl was really injured. It was rumored that her ribs and hip were broken, but in fact she was not injured, except for the fright from the unexpectedness of what was happening.

 

15. The first dance at the Yule Ball is one of Harry's most awkward Goblet of Fire moments, and it's no coincidence that Daniel Radcliffe had a lot less time to memorize the choreography than the rest of the cast.

In the book, Harry is described as a bad dancer, and thanks to Daniel's busy filming schedule, this was reflected in the film. While he was busy filming the tournament scenes, the other actors spent all their free time choreographing. They rehearsed a lot together, while Daniel had only four days to prepare for the ball.

 

16. It's more of an accident when nature took the actors by surprise, but it's worth mentioning. There is a scene in Call Me by Your Name where Elio and Oliver are climbing the hill towards the waterfall. It's a happy scene, but the actors' cheers are actually reactions to nettle burns on the field.

Director Luca Guadaningo only had a short window of time to film the entire scene—the "waterfall" was actually a hydroelectric dam that only opened once a year. Since there were few opportunities for re-shoots, there was probably no time to pay attention to small things like nettles.

 

17. Avoiding spoilers in Marvel movies is no joke, so in Endgame, the directors made sure no one found out. So when it came to filming Tony's funeral, some of the actors thought they would be in the wedding scene.

After Avengers: Endgame was released, Tom Holland and Mark Ruffalo released photos from the day of filming, despite the fact that everyone present was forbidden to film what was happening on smartphones.

 

One can only wonder how the actors were able to reincarnate in such a way and demonstrate grief after such a prank.

the-official-trailer-of-the-new-home-alone-version-has-appeared-mccallister-family-member-returns-video

The first official trailer was released for the new version of the 1990 film, which became a cult hit, "Home Alone". In the new film, Macaulay Culkin is replaced by 12-year-old actor Archie Yates.


Industry sources say that Yates - who played the lead role in the Golden Globe-nominated film "Jojo Rabbit" - will not resume the legendary role of Kevin McCallister, but will play a new character included in the famous franchise.


The subject of the film repeats the popular 1990 feature film: the boy is forgotten by his parents before the Christmas holidays, and in the absence of parental control he enjoys freedom: he eats sweets as much as he wants and even offers harsh resistance to robbers who decide to rob the house in the middle of the holiday.



Macaulay Culkin, judging by the trailer, will not appear in the new version of the movie "Home Alone", but one of the members of the McCallister family will definitely return to the small screens. In one of the frames, the audience will see the older brother of the protagonist of the original film, Buzz, who has now grown up and become a policeman and patrols that area.



The director is Dan Mather, known to the audience for directing the films: "Bruno", "Bridget Jones 3" and "Office Christmas Party". The premiere of the new version of the film will take place on November 12 on the Disney + streaming platform.

inconspicuous-details-that-the-filmmakers-have-skillfully-hidden-in-the-movies

Almost every film has curious details that are difficult to notice when you first watch it. Sometimes it can be unexpected characters, unobtrusively left by the director. Or inconspicuous moments that reveal the plot of the picture and add a special peppercorn to it.

 

At Bemorepanda, we found 13 hidden movie parts that even seasoned moviegoers might overlook. At the end of the article, you will find an unexpected fact about the cult melodrama, which many watched before the holes in the sunset of the 1990s.

 

1. "Matrix" - the symbol of yin and yang

When Neo and Morpheus attack each other in The Matrix, their clothing and body position form a symbol of the union of yin and yang. In Chinese philosophy, it means the interaction of opposites: light and darkness, day and night, positive and negative.

 

2. "Pirates of the Caribbean" - compass

In Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, when Commander James Norrington holds up the compass, he points to Jack, not Elizabeth. This compass does not point north or south, but in the direction of what the person holding it desires most.
