Default Anyone else going to avoid Avatar 2 promotional material?

So, I don't know about anyone else, but when the promotional material for Avatar 2 starts coming, I'm going to sort of limit as best as I can my ability to see it. The reason why is when the first Avatar movie came out, the only thing I knew about it was this was a thing that happened in the movie.

And I had seen that so long before the movie came out, I had actually forgotten about it until the scene actually happened in the movie. If I recall correctly, I saw that during the Superbowl in 2009 and only that one time.

Completely without context. And I think if I knew more about Avatar going in, I might not have enjoyed it as much.

The same thing could be said about Avatar: Flight of Passage. Before Avatarmeet 2017, I found a bunch of videos on the ride, including the entire ride itself. And I saved those videos to a playlist, but I didn't actually watch them until after I got home from the meet up.

In the same vein, the first time I watch the trailer for Avatar 2 will be (assuming all goes according to plan) after I see the movie for the first time.

I'm highly considering doing this myself. These days I largely avoid trailers for movies that I know I'll go see. I really enjoy the sense of surprise that I otherwise wouldn't get.

I saw Avatar on DVD and heard little about it beforehand so it was a shocker. I will probably do the same for part 2. I don't watch tv, browse news, or see commercials (no cable) so I should be good as long as I don't get stuck on a youtube spree and end up watching 14 versions of the trailer.

This is a good idea. I knew nothing of Avatar before I saw it.
