Avatar (Predictably) Dominates The Weekend Box Office

It remains to be seen if first partnership between director James Cameron and Ubisoft, Avatar: The Game, becomes a success story, but when I spoke to Cameron just before Avatar opened nationwide back in December, he was optimistic about his future relationship with Ubisoft.

"I've got a lot of stories and I don't have enough time to make 'em all as movies," said Cameron. "That's something I'm exploring with Ubisoft, to see if there's maybe a relationship around just getting some of these story and world ideas into games just completely independent of movies. Good ideas and good visuals are exactly that."

I spoke with Cameron before Avatar became a worldwide phenomenon. Even though he professed an interest in making more Avatar films and further exploring Pandora, if the movie didn't interest people, what would be the point? But if just the game clicked, he admitted Avatar could live on that way.

"If the game's a hit, the game has its own life," he said," and so you do subsequent titles and hopefully I would continue to be involved in that, regardless if we go forward with the movie franchise."

Cameron has since revealed he's moving forward on Avatar 2, while we wait for news on Avatar: The Game. Ubisoft reported "lower-than-expected" earlier today, however, which should lower expectations. Whether the sales of Avatar: The Game changes the future of the relationship remains to be seen.

For more with Cameron, check out my interview, which recently aired on X-Play.
