Taking 3D technology to new heights, this insanely successful adventure flick from James Cameron centers on a paraplegic marine named Jake Sully (Sam Worthington). At the behest of his superiors, Sully inhabits the body of a Na’vi, the native humanoid species on the moon Pandora. While Sully’s initial task is to help his bosses eradicate the Na’vi and get their hands on a precious mineral, he soon finds himself pledging loyalty to his blue-skinned brethren. A whopping four sequels are in various states of production, with the next installment scheduled to premier in December 2022.
