After 12 years James Cameron finally came out with his first film since Titanic.  The highly anticipated movie which is entitled Avatar was well worth the wait.  Grossing over 1 billion dollars in ticket sales in only the first 3 weeks that it has been in theaters,  this is the fastest any movie has gotten to a billion dollars in history. Avatar has make James Cameron the first director to ever direct to films that grossed over a billion dollars at the box offices.  Cameron utilized a new generation stereoscopic cameras.” In other words, strapped two cameras together providing a different perspective on a scene which would mimic how the human eye perceives the world in three dimensions.”  James Cameron wrote Avatar around the same time that he was finishing Titanic but felt that the technology at the time was good enough to create the film how he wanted to be seen by the viewers.  Avatar is currently the fourth highest grossing film of all time behind Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Mans Chest, The Lord of the Rings: The return of the King, and Titanic.  If Avatar has a higher gross at the box office then The Lord of the Rings: The return of the King then will make James Cameron the creator of the two highest grossing films of all time, which is a very impressive feat to say the least.
