MONEY TREE: Avatar Makes Cameron Hundreds of Millions

James Cameron reportedly earned $350 million from the release of Avatar.  This marks the largest personal financial gain, by any director from a single film, ever! This may seem like an absurd amount of money, until you weigh it against the $2.7 billion Fox Entertainment has grossed since its December 2009 release.  The studio is even planning a re-release later this summer for those who may have missed it the first time, and have included an additional eight minutes of footage. Cameron recently ranked third on Forbes celebrity 100 list. His fortune is expected to continue to grow, with more DVD and Blu-ray sales, as well as talk of an Avatar sequel.

MOMism: “Dream Big!” This is a piece of advice that many of us have shared with our kids at one time or another. Nobody ever accomplishes great things in life without BIG dreams.  Wonder what James Cameron dreamed about when he was a little boy? What did his O-MAMA say when he described blue-skinned creatures connected to nature in a world called Pandora?  Our kids have sometimes have crazy dreams…let’s do our best to guide and support them, no matter how wild they may seem.  We may be pleasantly surprised by what their imaginations are capable of!
