As well with this Avengers "rerelease" (it never left theater in my city so i never considered/felt it was a rerelease) it was a combined span of like 3 months? Whereas Avatar has been in theatres for almost a year?
People say 'wait til Avatar gets a rerelease before the sequel', but my question is will Disney allow that? 1) First Avatar is tainted by Fox whereas Disney having Avengers Endgame to remain the top spot under their roof sounds better and 2) It's been so long that the sequel probably doesnt need people to understand the original Avatar. Just my thoughts.
Can't really judge anything on the length of the performance since they are different beasts. Endgame was the buildup of more than ten years worth of movies and hype for the "final" Avengers film, with everyone together for the last time. Of course it would be more front loaded. Avatar was a new IP that sold from word of mouth and 3D hype, so it was more of a slow burn.
Yea, I'm not too sure they will have a rerelease. Then, again, if they think they can make a ton of cash off of it, maybe they will. Personally, I don't see a rerelease doing much as Avatar interest has died down considerably. Other than it being known that it made a shit ton of money, it hasn't entered into the mainstream mindscape. No one quotes the film or parodies it, anymore. Other than a few being able to call the alien race by name, no one remembers any characters from the film. That's why I think James Cameron is going to be shocked if he thought Avatar sequels are his future. I see the 2nd one only doing ~1/2 of what the 1st one did.
