James Cameron's "Avatar: The Way of Water" could become one of the highest-grossing films ever.
The director is known for visually stunning, culturally impactful movies.
His films are known for excellent visual effects, and "Titanic" was a major hit.
1997's "Titanic," starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet, won an Oscar.
When accepting, Cameron proclaimed himself "the king of the world."
He later said he was expressing excitement but admitted the quote may have been arrogant.
Quoting one's own film during an Academy acceptance speech is generally seen as taboo.
"Avatar: The Way of Water" has already reached the top 10 highest-grossing films list.
Cameron plans to make more "Avatar" sequels.
