AceShowbiz - The final trailer of "Avatar: The Way of Water" has been unleashed less than a month before the movie heads into theaters. Being debuted on Monday night, November 21 on ESPN during "Monday Night Football", it has also been made available online for viewing pleasure.
The video opens with Jake Sully (Sam Worthington) and his family going across the water to seek protection from the Na'vi clan of Metkayina, which is described as "the Sea People" or "the reef people" by James Cameron. As the patriarch tries to ensure his family's safety, one of his children appears to have an identity crisis.
Lo'ak (Britain Dalton), the second son of Jake and Neytiri (Zoe Saldana), struggles with his image as an "outcast." The trailer also teases his possible romantic relationship with Tsireya (Bailey Bass), the daughter of Metkayina's leader Tonowari (Cliff Curtis).
But it seems that their biggest threat is still humans as the video offers a glimpse of a war with soldiers armed with destructive weapons and advanced combat gears.
Set more than a decade after the events of the first film, "Avatar: The Way of Water" begins to tell the story of the Sully family (Jake, Neytiri, and their kids), the trouble that follows them, the lengths they go to keep each other safe, the battles they fight to stay alive and the tragedies they endure.
Cameron is writing, producing and editing the upcoming movie in addition to directing. Jon Landau and Peter M. Tobyansen produce, while the story is co-written by Rick Jaffa, Amanda Silver, Josh Friedman and Shane Salerno.
The movie, which is over three-hours long (190 minutes), will open in theaters across the nation on December 16. Cameron has per-preemptively shut down critics of the runtime, saying back in May, "I don't want anybody whining about length when they sit and binge-watch [television] for eight hours.... It's OK to get up and go pee."
