Avatar 2 runtime confirms it's one of the longest movies ever made

The release of The Way of Water is now mere weeks away. On 16 December, the sequel to James Cameron’s wildly successful Avatar finally lands - and I’m sure someone out there is excited about that fact. It may be one of the most successful films of all time, but Avatar lacks any kind of cultural impact. It’s a strange beast of a film - one that most people have seen, yet few remember in detail.

Either way, we’ll probably all flock to the cinema next month to see The Way of Water after refreshing our minds with a quick internet summary of the first film. There’s actually a further three sequels planned, although those are only going ahead if The Way of Water proves to be financially successful. It’s a big ask considering the film cost over $2 billion to make. The Way of Water also asks a lot of your bladder.

The film’s runtime has finally been confirmed and prepare yourselves friends, it’s a long one. The Way of Water officially runs for 192 minutes - or three hours and 12 minutes if you want to break it down. James Cameron confirmed the fact to Total Film. To compare, that makes The Way of Water a full 30 minutes longer than its predecessor - and you thought Avatar was long.

What’s particularly cruel about this runtime is that the film is quite literally about water. Trying to avoid a toilet break whilst you’re watching water slosh around for over three hours isn’t the most comfortable of experiences. Don’t complain to James Cameron though. He doesn’t want to hear it.

Earlier this year, Cameron said “I don’t want anybody whining about length when they sit and binge-watch [television] for eight hours. I can almost write this part of the review. ‘The agonisingly long three-hour movie…’ It’s like, give me a f**king break. I’ve watched my kids sit and do five one-hour episodes in a row. Here’s the big social paradigm shift that has to happen: it’s okay to get up and go pee.” You’ve been warned.
