The box office has been particularly bad both this week and the week before. Everyone is now focused on Avatar: The Way Of Water, which opens in theatres next week. The movie's advance ticket sales began way back on November 22, and so far, they have been quite promising. The abundance of positive reviews from the West has raised the bar for both moviegoers and the industry at large.
It was just revealed that Avatar: The Way Of Water's censorship has been finished. The movie was approved by the Central Board of Film Certification's (CBFC) examining committee with a U/A certificate and no visual cuts. However, the CBFC members expressed concerns about the film's use of foul language. As a result, up to 12 swear words and expressions have been muted in the movies. The phrases include "p**s face," "b*h," "a," "f*g," "st," "b*holes," "dipst," "son of a b*h," "a-whipping," "ahole," and "f*k." A total of 18 instances of offensive language were muted throughout the movie.
The censor certificate for Avatar: The Way Of Water was given on Thursday, December 8 following the completion of these changes. According to the censor certificate, the movie has a running time of 192.10 minutes. Its running time is therefore 3 hours and 12 minutes. As a result, Avatar: The Way of Water surpasses the lengths of the Telugu blockbuster RRR ( 3 hours, 5 minutes) and the Tamil feature Cobra (3 hours, 1 minute) to become the lengthiest movie to be released in Indian theatres following the pandemic. It is also uncommon for Hollywood movies to go longer than three hours.
Avatar: The Way Of Water is a very successful and lauded sequel to the critically acclaimed Avatar. It is directed by the legendary filmmaker James Cameron (2009). Kate Winslet, Cliff Curtis, Jamie Flatters, Britain Dalton, and Trinity Jo-Li Bliss are among its cast members. The movie is scheduled to open in theatres on December 16, 2022.
