The legendary director his thoughts on the movie...
MTV Movie News recently spoke with director James Cameron where he talked about The Avengers movie which recently crossed the worldwide box office gross of $1.5 billion and gave his thoughts.
Regarding the movie's box office take and how it got close to his movies Avatar and Titanic, Cameron said, "They got close. They didn't break the $2 billion-dollar barrier, there's only two in the club," Cameron said with a wink and a smile, speaking to Titanic and Avatar. But you know, come on, let's go guys."
Cameron also said: "Look, I want Hollywood to be as successful and vibrant as it always has. Hopefully a movie will come along next year and show everyone what's possible because that just benefits us all. On the other hand, if that shouldn't happen for another ten years that would be good too," he joked. "It's kind of a no-lose situation. We managed to push 'Titanic' right over the $2 billion mark with the re-release, so I'm happy about that...Oh I liked Avengers. I thought it was a real crowd-pleaser, lots of fun [and] funny, funnier than [I expected]. I thought leaving it was important because Titanic is not exactly a laugh riot."
