Avatar, a movie that made an inordinate amount of money while also failing to become part of the larger cultural zeitgeist in a meaningful way, is slated to be followed up with too many sequels that no one aside from James Cameron asked for. While the public might have lost all interest in the franchise, Disney (which now owns the rights to it all) is still hellbent on trying to turn it into...a Thing™.

It’s that special time of year when we all have a chance to look forward to all the shows set to return in the coming months, buzz around upcoming movies is reaching new levels of intensity, and for some reason, studios decide to try and work real-world Earth holiday traditions their decidedly non-Earth based fantasy worlds. Let’s get into some holiday spoilers, folks.

Today, December 18, 2019, is the 10th anniversary of Avatar. You remember Avatar—the second highest-grossing movie in the history of movies, which the majority of filmgoers have long since forgotten about? Right, that one. The one with the blue people. Ten years have passed without a sequel, we’re still two years away from getting one, but in a new interview writer-director James Cameron has a very logical explanation.

As we reported on earlier, Avengers: Endgame will be getting a limited new theatre run with brand new footage to entice audiences back. For once, it turns out, Australia is not being forgotten. This weekend, Hoyts will host a range of limited screenings of the re-release.

There's not much new footage, but it’s probably going to be more than enough for Marvel Studios to swipe Avatar’s box office record.

They’re somehow still casting people in James Cameron’s Avatar saga. Get a look at a very sad Flex Mentallo in new Doom Patrol pictures. Bill Murray’s open to making a cameo in the new Ghostbusters. Plus, a creepy new clip from Brightburn, and the final two promo pictures for Game of Thrones. Spoilers, away!

Video: Want to feel old? The year 2009 was 10 years ago. No, really. And if you want to feel really old, here’s a video where Year Four students explain what jobs they think will exist in the future.

A lot of us are still scratching our heads over Disney's decision to spend millions of dollars building Pandora — The World of Avatar in its Animal Kingdom park, especially with Star Wars Galaxy's Edge opening so soon. But at least the themed area, which is celebrating its one year anniversary, led to the creation of one of Disney's most advanced (and seriously impressive) audio-animatronic characters: the Shaman of Songs.
