Avatar, director James Cameron

Cameron for some time compared with King Midas, who turned into gold everything he touched.Judge for yourself: two of the five captured the film's director - "Titanic" (1997, 11 "Oscars), and" Avatar "(2009) - have become the most cash in the history of world cinema.First it earned $ 1.84 billion at the box office, and the second did and did crushing cash-nearly $ 2.5 billion (and this is only the end of February).Announcing the desire to sci-fi blockbuster sequel, Cameron challenged ... Plank "Avatar" raised very high, and therefore, again, James will not belong to himself for several years and his home have to go through another creative stoycheski "dive" head of the family.Despite the fact that the creator of Avatar, director James Cameron - a Canadian, a passion for his work is typically American.Not every woman can take it.
