James Cameron's first "Avatar" film was visually one of the most advanced films to date, but the Academy Award-winning director is preparing to step up his game for the sequel.
The Associated Press revealed that "Avatar 2" will be shot at 48- or 60-frames-a-second, compared to the 24-frames-a-second that has been Hollywood standard for more than 80 years.
Cameron unveiled the new development at a CinemaCon convention, where he showed 3-D clips shot at the standard speed immediately followed by clips shot at the quicker speed, to demonstrate the difference.
"I was stunned when I saw it, at how clear and crisp it was. If 3-D is like looking at reality through a window, we've taken the glass out of the window," said Cameron.
But "Avatar 2" will be a long time coming.
"I'm still just writing the script," Cameron admitted, "so I'm a minimum of 18 months out of having to shoot something. I've got a bit of time to get this sorted out."
