Avatar 2 Is Going To Be So Long James Cameron Is Encouraging Pee Breaks

Avatar: The Way of Water has such a long run time that director James Cameron is encouraging pee breaks.

To be honest, we'd be surprised if we made it through a film titled The Way of Water without any pee breaks, especially since it's a crime to go to the cinema and not get a Tango Ice Blast.

But it turns out that Cameron is completely fine with pee breaks. In fact, he's actually encouraged them if it stops people whining about the length of the movie, which is set to be a whopping two hours and 40 minutes long.

Yep, but to be fair, we've definitely binged series' in one session that is way longer, as Cameron points out.

"I don't want anybody whining about length when they sit and binge-watch for eight hours [...] I can almost write this part of the review," he said in an interview with Empire.

"'The agonizingly long three-hour movie...' It's like, give me a f*****g break. I've watched my kids sit and do five one-hour episodes in a row."

Despite his TV views, the director understands that sometimes nature calls: "Here's the big social paradigm shift that has to happen: it's okay to get up and go pee."

And we don't need any more permission than that.

However, we imagine some people are planning to hold it for the full three hours, given that they've waited over a decade for the new film.

We won't be one of them, but that doesn't mean we aren't excited.

The new film is set to premiere on 16 December 2022, and picks up 10 years after the events of the first film.

The trailer shows Jake Sully (Sam Worthington) learning more about the Na'vi people on Pandora, with his bold partner Neytiri (Zoe Saldana) by his side.

If that's not enough to hype you up for the film, Saldana's reaction might be - according to the actress, it took her just 20 minutes into the film to cry, which sounds like the kind of time we'd take our first pee break.

As Saldana recounted: "I can get choked up just talking about it because I was able to see just 20 minutes of the second installment right before the year ended, last year.

"And I was speechless, I was moved to tears."

So, there you have it, if you want to be left 'speechless' and have pre-approved pee breaks, watch Avatar: The Way of Water this December.
