The director introduced pioneering technology in his 2009 Avatar movie, which became the highest-grossing movie ever, and now Cameron is planning to make strides in film when his sequels hit the big screen.

He plans on making 3D easier to view and admits he's close to a breakthrough, which will change the way film fans watch movies.

"I'm going to push. Not only for better tools, workflow, high dynamic range and high frame rates - the things we are working toward," he tells "I'm still very bullish on 3D, but we need brighter projection, and ultimately I think it can happen - with no glasses. We'll get there."

While glasses-free 3D is a technology that currently exists, producing it for a large movie theatre screen is not currently a possibility.

But it's still not clear when Cameron's Avatar sequels will hit the big screen after Avatar 2 was postponed from its initial December, 2016 release date to the end of 2017.

Cameron had both good and bad news for devotees when he appeared at the Las Vegas CinemaCon event earlier this year (16), revealing he was developing four sequels, instead of the previously-announced three, but told film fans they would have to wait even longer for Avatar 2, which is now set to hit cinemas in December, 2018.

At the time, he declared Avatar 3 was pegged for release in 2020, with the fourth and fifth instalments following in 2022 and 2023. However, during an appearance on U.S. breakfast show Today in September (16), Cameron claimed he was working on having all four films released within a four-year time span from 2018.

"As fans, you're waiting for the big cinematic epic event, which is gonna be four films coming out one after the other, hopefully a year apart, if we can do that, that tell a huge saga story across the four movies," he explained.
