20th Century Fox released "Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel" less than a week after they released "Avatar" as insurance due to fears that Avatar would bomb. They called it their "secret weapon".

It sounds ridiculous now but Alvin and the Chipmunks 2 made over $400 million worldwide, so calling it a "secret weapon" sounds appropriate.

I love everything about this. That they doubted the film and that Alvin is their saving grace.

I like to think the SNL video made them switch it. There were probably multiple people aware of it.

People have been saying for YEARS how they want another 4 of these movies. People just can't get enough /s

Maybe pulling a LotR where you film them all at once and then release one a year? 5 is so many though....

James Cameron: The ‘Avatar’ Sequels Have Wrapped Production
To be clear, they only wrapped AVATAR 2 and 3. They'll go back into production on 4 and 5 based on box office, per the article.
To be released December 2020 and 2021, that's a lot of post production time

They are really trying to hype these movies so far in advance but the hype just isn't sticking.

I was on the GoDaddy page looking it up and figured the hassle of turning off automatic renewal wouldn't be worth it. The $10 would have been tho.
