Some people are considered as legends for their work and ethics they follow. One such legend in the Hollywood industry is James Cameron. Undoubtedly for his caliber and passion towards directing movies has made him no less than a grandfather of the modern era. All the younger generations must take inspiration from such an idol and follow his footpaths to get success. One such evident followers and most importantly the fans of James Cameron’s work are the Russo brothers.
There take on James Cameron:
The Russo Brothers who provided extraordinary blockbusters are enormous fans of James Cameroon. Joe Russo who is one of the critical directors behind the Avengers Endgame has said after it’s a success over Avatar in the box office that James Cameron is like a role model to them. Though he could never have the pleasure of meeting Cameron or even running into him at a premiere or some other Hollywood social event it never lowered the Russo brother’s respect and admiration over James Cameron.
He said that Cameroon’s influence on them was huge. They always say the script for Aliens is the template for most modern filmmaking. It spawned an era of commercial movies that owe their DNA and lineage to that script. Cameron is the godfather of contemporary commercial cinema along with Spielberg and Lucas. When someone says something like that about a movie you made, when you grew up in their films, it’s hard to process. The little kid inside of you certainly is ecstatic and validated. So in this way, the Russo brothers state that their love James Cameron was the same as their love for 3000. This clearly shows how much the Russo had got admired by James Cameron and his work.
It was never so easy :
The Russo brothers say that it was never so easy to provide such huge blockbusters as in this modern era there is huge competition. James Cameron has succeeded continuously in this battle. His words were so simple. He used to say that there is no wrong in having hope. There’s undoubtedly always hope.
Just like his hero, even Russo follows these basic principles. He says that all have to look to themselves to provide the right kind of entertainment to get people to come out of the house. It’s more competitive than it’s ever been. He thinks that audiences want new and exciting concepts. They want it presented in a way that feels spectacular and worthy of walking out the door and sitting in a theatre. They want a communal experience. So he followed the same for Endgame and got the deserved result. With Avatar 2 scheduled to hit theatres on December 17 of 2021 this time is going to be much more than Avatar. It might even break the Endgame’s record now. All must wait for the tight clash which is going to come from Russo Brother’s movie Cherry starring Tom Holland which will release in 2020.
