Kate Winslet’s picture from Avatar sequel set is breathtaking
Ever since James Cameron started working on the sequels to his 2009 film Avatar, the other-worldly films have garnered a lot of attention from fans. The makers recently took to Twitter to share an underwater still of Kate Winslet, who plays a character named Ronal in the sequels.
The caption of the post quotes Winslet from a recent interview, “From Kate Winslet’s recent interview in @THR: ‘I had to learn how to free-dive to play that role in Avatar, and that was just incredible. My longest breath-hold was seven minutes and 14 seconds, like crazy, crazy stuff.’”
James Cameron had earlier revealed both Avatar 2 and 3 are being shot back-to-back in New Zealand. In a conversation with Arnold Schwarzenegger on his YouTube channel, Cameron had mentioned that the principal photography of Avatar 2 was complete and Avatar 3 was almost 95 per cent done. The films will require sufficient time in post-production.
While film production and shooting came to a standstill all around the world due to the pandemic, Avatar could resume its filming a little earlier as they were placed in New Zealand and the country’s COVID response was far better than any other country where shoots were stalled.
